Who doesn’t love a good brunch? By definition it is a meal usually taken late in the morning that combines a late breakfast and an early lunch. It is also a great excuse to meet up with family or friends, eat tasty food, and engage in conversation. Brunch was actually the inspiration of an English author named Guy Beringer. It originally came about in an essay he wrote back in 1895 as a way to nurse a hangover after a night of drinking. Whatever the reason be that you might love brunch, we have a list of local spots that you’ve got to check out!
