    Only rarely as there aren’t many places to go to here in England like I imagine there are in the US [jealous]. I was lucky to work in a restaurant in my late teens where the owner was American so did a brunch on Sunday, where I first saw Eggs Benedict etc, I still miss and crave that restaurant’s brunch now and wish there more places near to where I live that did it.

    I voted “other” because none of the options really applied to me.


    I’m in the U.S. and i used to do brunch all the time when I was single and living in a downtown neighborhood that was filled with trendy cafes and dining spots.

    I faithfully had brunch with my single pals and we discussed our adventures and misadventures in the dating jungle. 

    Now that I’m married and in the suburbs, DH and I prefer to have breakfast in. I guess we’re too lazy and happy at home. We enjoy sleeping in and then making breakfast/brunch together. I don’t miss going out for brunch at all!

    @Olympia:  We make our own breakfast but sometimes it is at the “brunch” hour. We tend to feel that going out for meals is a waste of money so it’s not something we routinely do.

    I consider brunch and breakfast to be different.

    We go to breakfast more often than brunch, but we regularly (a few times a year) go to brunch. 

    To me brunch is usually a nicer place, we order mimisosas and its later in the morning or early afternoon. The food choices are usually inspirational and its a social event to lounge and enjoy yourself. This costs more than a traditional breakfast.

    Breakfast is coffee and OK, first thing in the morning and generally you get a more simplistic breakfast of eggs or pancakes etc. Its less gourmet and a quicker in an out experience.

    I LOVE throwing Sunday brunch parties. Food is cheaper to buy, there are so many choices since it consists of both lunch and breakfast foods. Its fun to eat, drink with friends early in the day and then send them home and you can nap off the alchohol and still have some time to yourselves before work on Monday. Everyone seems to love brunch parties because they are a little less ordinary. I usually start them at 1130 or 12.

    We go to brunch most Sundays after church. Most of the time, it’s our one meal that we eat out every week. DH loves to get pancakes, probably half the time. I like omlets, cheese grits (we’re in the South!), french toast, and traditional breakfasts with eggs, bacon, and biscuits.

    Never been; it’s not really a thing where I’m from.

    DH and I brunch every weekend, there are a dozen brunch places within walking difference, a ton more if we drive or get on the bus.

    It is a weekend tradition for us, it stems back to being LDR for 3 years and only seeing each other on weekends

    I’m the US and I go to brunch almost every Sunday! I always go with my mom and little sister. Since we don’t live at home anymore, it’s a great way for my sister and I to spend time with our mom and just talk about girl stuff, and as of lately, my upcoming wedding 🙂 

    We have a few spots that we alternate between. But we always stick with places that have either free or unlimited mimosas. Our favorite things to order are chicken & waffles, eggs benadict, and bacon!

    I LOVE going out for breakfast, but FI likes to sleep in on weekends so it usually becomes brunch by default. Since we bought our house last year we have been going a lot less often because it is much less expensive to just eat at home. I’m not going to lie, I miss our Saturday brunches out – I’d like to bring the tradition back!

    @Olympia:  Err… brunch isn’t really a “thing” where I live, but if I do have one, it’s less of an actual planned thing and more coincidental or convenient depending on what’s going on, i.e. got up late/slept in after a hangover and just happened to have breakfast late/lunch early.

    If anything, I have “brunch” at home every weekend when I sleep in!

    I LOVE brunch! It’s my favourite meal! lol if my favourite options weren’t sooooo bad for me I would eat it 3 times a day lol we normally go to a small local place that does a little buffet. They have crepes, waffles, pancakes, french toast, fresh fruit, salad etc. its amazing!
