Brunch, a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch, originated in England in the late 19th century and rose in popularity in the early 20th century. Brunches have become the go-to Sunday outing options which allows friends and extended families to get together and unwind from a stressful week. When we think of a brunch, we first think of Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha getting together and talking about life and all that it brought into their lives starting with the late twenties.

Brunches may involve a English spread which consists the likes of eggs, sausages, bacon, ham, fruits, pastries, pancakes, waffles, scones and have also been customised according to different palates.
