Best Brunch Restaurants Near Daytona Beach
The History of Brunch
The term "brunch" dates back to the late 1800s in Great Britain and is the meal combining and substituting breakfast and lunch. Brunch was referred to for the first time in a local Britain newspaper, Hunter's Weekly, as making "life brighter for Saturday-night carousers...Brunch is cheerful, sociable, and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week."
Today, brunch is served around the world. In many cities, residents even create brunch clubs where groups of people, sometimes total strangers, from all over the city come together to well...brunch!
Brunch foods include mostly breakfast foods like crepes, waffles, eggs served in a variety of ways, but also lunch items like seafood, salads, and desserts. Mimosas of all flavors, Bellini's and Bloody Mary's are popular brunch cocktails, but orange juice, coffee, and milk are also served.
