We have finally decided on a brunch reception menu–what do you all think?
Brunch Buffet with Quiche Lorraine (bacon and swiss)
Green Salad with two choices of salad dressings
Grilled Chicken Ceasar Salad
Tomato Bisque soup
coffee, tea, juice and water
We will have a cash bar but will host a pomegranate champagne toast.
We are planning for a Catholic ceremony around 1100 (so will last an hour) with brunch served around 1230-100, do you think this is too late for a brunch?
Thanks for all the help.

I think it sounds delicious! I might skip the cash bar, though. The pomegranate champagne sounds great, and most people won’t miss the additional alcohol at 12:30 in the afternoon.

What you have sounds good although there is only one breakfast selection and the rest are lunch. Although some restaurants serve do quiche as lunch fare and your guests may be anticipating breakfast items such as waffles or sweet crepes if you mention you are serving brunch. Talk to your caterer and see what they have.
The time is fine. That is when most restaurants serve brunch. Not too late at all.
Skip the cash bar. The coffee, juice, etc is plenty for that time of day. You may ask your caterer if they could serve hot cocoa which is a common breakfast beverage. Also, alot of people do not drink alcohol that early in the day so it won’t be missed if you don’t have it.

The menu confused me just a little because like Ember78 pointed out, there is only the one breakfast food (and the fruit, I guess). I’d pep it up with more breakfast-like offerings to go alongside the quiche (e.g. waffles, bacon, french toast, etc…), or skip the quiche and add some type of sandwich.
Then again, I equate brunch with breakfast foods that aren’t cereals or nutrition bars . . . . You might not though. Have the food that you guys want to eat!

How about a Belgian waffle bar? I heart belgian waffles and they are soooo delicious with all the different toppings 🙂 I also agree that for a brunch, cash bar is not needed. champagne toast, coffee/tea/juice/soda is plenty!
Everything else sounds great!!

Like everybody has said, I’d like to see a few more breakfast foods if you are calling it brunch. Crepes, french toast, waffles, something like that. And definitely skip the cash bar. It’s unnecessary at that time of day and you can save yourself the whole cash bar debate.
