Brunch is separated from "late breakfast" by class signifiers and open drinking. Evangelicals, particularly observant Catholics, etc eat breakfast late on Sundays. But it is well-to-do yuppies who brunch.

It's the perfect meal for people like me who like breakfast only slightly less than they like sleeping through breakfast!

I meet my folks for brunch every Sunday, and it absolutely kills my father that we eat breakfast food at 11AM. He's legit embarrassed about it, and thinks that other people are judging us. Crazy fucker gets up at 5AM every morning, which is about when mom and are falling asleep most Saturday nights.

What really gets me are the folks that like to eat breakfast food at 3AM. There's a 24-hour restaurant here in town that I used to eat at with friends often, and the majority of my friends would order breakfast when we went there in the middle of the night, and I'm always like "what are you fuckers doing?"

dude I'm honestly not trying to give you a hard time, but given how much you've told us about your weirdo ketchup rituals why are you questioning the dietary quirks of others

If they all order homefries, that's less ketchup for me.

Anyway brunch is bad. It's overpriced breakfast, it's just stuff that yuppies appropriated, like chicken and waffles, gussied up with flowery language and slapped with an inflated price tag.

Does eating leftover pizza for, well, breakfast count as brunch?

Are mimosas available? If yes, then it's brunch.

God bless the multitude of "breakfast served anytime" restaurants in this lovely city, though sadly too many of them are not 24-hour establishments.

Quick someone make a spreadsheet about breakfast foods and when people eat them so I know how to classify myself.


I will eat breakfast foods for any meal. But then I eat supper food for any meal too.

Don't talk to me about class warfare until I've had at least two mimosas.

If brunch actually is the meal that broke the social stigma of women eating out alone that's another point for it!

Everyone in the thread that spawned this one is crazy and Eggs Benedict is fucking delicious.

Meanwhile, although breakfast food at 1-3am is not brunch, it is a pretty decent way to take the edge off a little too much drinking before going home to get some sleep.

I can't imagine having mimosas any earlier than brunch. Aren't people still hung over at 8am?

Alcohol is the best hangover cure.

Second best is maple cured pork belly eggs benedict with rosemary smashed potatoes.

Breakfast food that is terrible for your body tastes great, no matter what you call it or when you eat it.

Contra Ample Vigor, speaking from experience rural Catholics from a wide variety of economic backgrounds also "brunch" (either privately or as an entire congregation in the church basement/church dining hall) after Sunday mass, and this obviously includes non-yuppies. My family is all entirely from a Catholic and non-Evangelical protestant background so I don't know from experience, but "baptist brunch" brings up a bajillion google hits for Sunday Brunch. So, presumably either Evangelicals have Sunday "brunch" too, or else someone out there is staging false-flag Evangelical Brunch events.

Brunch in itself is not a sign of yuppie degeneracy or whatever. That being said, if you are lining up for two hours to pay $25 for some blueberry pancakes Portlandia style, it's a possibility that U Brunchin' BAD.

"Brunch" as a ritual of conspicuous consumption is a separate entity from "brunch," a custom that is practiced across a wide spectrum of economic and religious groups in the US.

If would be fine if it didn't have the abomination known as Hollandaise sauce atop it.

Amusingly, here in New York, the "brunch" scene doesn't start until 1pm (since people have been up until 3am partying or whatever) so if you go to brunch at normal people brunch time (11am) you don't wait in long lines and still get your artisanal locally-sourced blueberry buckwheat pancakes with organic crème fraîche.

potatoes and eggs are delicious any time of day, but especially when you're tired, which is true both in the morning and very very late at night

i've more than once stayed up all night to eat breakfast (sometimes even with coffee...) and then go to bed
