I agree with you. This sounds like true breakfast rather than brunch. A carved ham and rolls, etc to make little sandwiches would be a nice addition. A nice salad would probably also be good to add. I feel like I usually see more “main dish” type things at fancy brunch buffets, like crepes or omelettes, and a lot of times those things have meat incorporated in them as well. (Or even smoked salmon or some other seafood)

I agree with you on the meat! I would see if they can provide an add on of ham, bacon or something!

Could you add a small carving station? Ham or roast beef maybe?

Do you have the option of adding anything else?  If it’s brunch I would also add a salad and a slider or two (chickcken salad, or crab cake or something)

I agree another meat would probably be good. Bacon or a carved ham for sure. You could probably even remove the french toast option, which i think is more breakfasty, and replace it with ham. the two probably aren’t interchangable price-wise, but if you’re trying to keep number of items more managable etc. Being able to make little sandwiches with croissants and ham would definitley pull it more into brunch rather than breakfast – especially if you had sliced tomato and lettuce or something along those lines.

aerin :  What about serving some bacon (will go well with everything else you have) and maybe have a coldcut section? People can then put a slice of whatever they choose on their croissant or just eat it with a fork and knife?

Honestly it screams hotel breakfast buffet to me. I would at least add a carving station for meat, and a salad or sandwhich section.

The menu definitely sounds more breakfast than brunch. You need some more “lunch” options I think for the people who aren’t big on eggs and yogurts etc. A carved meat station sounds great as well as maybe some sliders or pasta salads. Maybe some chicken and waffles?

aerin :  I agree it doesn’t feel like enough. I would try to add in something more substantial, like a lunchtime option. I’d definitely try to swap the sasuage with bacon, because who doesn’t love bacon?? haha but seriously people can be picky about their sasuage (like I hate a patty, but will eat a link). Maybe a Chicken & Waffles station or even Parm Chicken (white sauce, not red)?

A lot depends on the time of day too. If this is a 9am ceremony with a 10am reception I think you can get away with more breakfast items. If you’re going to be closer to 11-12 you need more lunch choices.

I don’t think the issue is whether or not there is enough food, but the fact it reads more like ‘breakfast’ than ‘brunch’. Perhaps ask the venue if they could add in some finger sandwiches, salads, stuff like that?

It doesn’t look like a brunch menu really, it looks like a breakfast menu! Honestly, if I were going to a brunch wedding I’d probably be disappointed in the food selection.

Personally I would love this menu- I adore bagels and yogurt with berries and granola. And I love breakfast, we even have ‘breakfast for dinner’ about 3-4 times a month. But if I was hosting a brunch, I would be concerned, as other Bees have mentioned, that it seems more actual breakfast than brunch. Plus bacon would be a nice option.
