Many people may see brunch as somewhat of a modern phenomenon but the term, which combines the words ‘breakfast’ and ‘lunch’ was actually coined as far back as the 1930s. Not only that, but many countries around the world celebrate brunch in their unique cultural style. China, for example, serves dim sum brunch, consisting of freshly prepared small sweet and savoury dishes and in Canada, brunch can last for several hours. In the UK, brunch has been made popular by late-rising millennials looking to enjoy a plethora of food in a relaxed environment. At Esquires Coffee, we think brunch is excellent, which is why we are proud to serve a variety of options throughout the day for you to pick and choose at your leisure! Here is why we think brunch is the best.
You Can Eat Whatever You Want
As brunch is a combination of two meals, you can choose between both the breakfast and lunch menus, which is great for those who just never quite know what they want. Ham and cheese toastie with a side of granola? No one is going to judge! You can also take advantage of its perfect timing to eat twice as much because technically, it’s two meals.
Sweet and Savoury
Because of the variety of options available, brunch is the best time to combine that ‘oh so naughty’ but delicious flavour combination of sweet and savoury. It seems socially unacceptable to have a dessert after breakfast, but after brunch? Of course!
You Can Eat Brunch at Any Time
Brunch is the perfect opportunity to have a lazy day, but still make plans. Any time of the morning is an acceptable time to eat, meaning you can make the most of your lazy Sunday lie-in, without worrying that you will be too late to eat. This leaves your morning open for a relaxing stroll, extra sleep, or perhaps ticking one or two jobs off your to-do list. Esquires Coffee serves food all day, so you don’t need to worry or rush.
It is the Perfect Social Event
Whether you’re entertaining family, taking the little ones out or catching up with friends, brunch is the perfect opportunity. The relaxed attitude to this meal means that you can take as long as you want to eat, drink and chat. It is the ideal opportunity to discuss the excitement of the night before, connect with loved ones, catch up with an old friend or colleague or get the kids ready for a big day.
It’s Perfect for Vegetarians and Vegans
Veggies and vegans can revel in the variety of brunch options available to them. With so much variety, there will be no struggle in satisfying your plant-loving cravings, from vegan sausages to honey and berry porridge. At Esquires Coffee, we serve a fantastic range of vegan and vegetarian food to enjoy – from the full vegan breakfast or vegan sausage roll to cakes and, of course, alternative milk options.
The Drinks are as Varied as the Food
Because brunch has this relaxed attitude, you can easily follow the same rules as food when it comes to your drinks order. If you want to stick to your usual, delicious coconut cappuccino, of course, we’ve got you covered. But if you want a vanilla hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and a side order of smoothie at 10 am? The more the merrier, we say!
You Can Wear Whatever You Want
We love the laissez-faire approach to choosing a brunch outfit. Whether you prefer hoodies or heels (or both) it is perfectly socially acceptable to wear anything that takes your fancy to brunch. The best part is meeting with a group of friends to find that you all have taken a different approach to your outfits!
