Weekend again! And time to go out and relax with a huge brunch with relaxed shoulders. Brunching should be a meal that is combining breakfast and lunch, and should be enjoyed longer than any of those meals. Finding a place that let you sit for a longer period than 1-1.5hour can be a challenge, but cafes usually let you sit longer. Brunch can basically be anything you like, it can be classic breakfast food or lunch food, or a good mix! A classic is mixing eggs and pancakes, noodles and meat or a good meal followed by a dessert. And of course a good cup of coffee (or tea if you prefer). However, originally brunch is enjoyed with alcoholic drinks, as it is a weekend meal, so don't hold back on the alcohol if you enjoy a glass of champagne, rose or cocktail.
