The trend of Brunch has recently EXPLODED in modern American culture. Brunch is everywhere! From brunch recipes on the Food&Drink page of Pinterest, to Brunch @ Bobby’s that airs on the Food Network, to Yelp-ing the best brunch places everywhere you go (that last one might just be me… BUT ANYWAYS), this mystical meeting of breakfast food and day drinking has rightfully won a prominent place in our hearts. Some do it for the social aspects, some from the food (or the booze), but for whatever reason you brunch, it’s clear that we can’t just like brunch, but rather we’ve become obsessed with it.
You know something is “IN” when Buzzfeed creates a quiz or post about it, and right now there is no shortage of brunch posts on their site. FOR INSTANCE:
- You think you are the brunch queen/king?? See if you are a BRUNCH SUPER STAR by taking this quiz.
- OR try some of these classy brunch recipes that are anything but basic.
Whether you have a go to brunch spot or prefer to do your brunching at home, good food and good company are what count!

Of course, I myself have fallen under the luster of brunch. As I usually participate in a Saturday 11 am brunch that lasts until 2 pm or longer, because lets face it, us brunch-ers take our brunching VERY seriously. It has a way of making waking up mid afternoon and stuffing your face with food and drinks for hours so elegant. Essentially, brunch can be made into anything one desires from healthy and light pickings to a calorie-dense sweet and savory buffet of goodness. With nothing but positive vibes, there is NO DENYING that brunch is here to stay.
