On Weekends We BRUNCH!

Brunch has become one of our favourite weekend eats. Whether at home or at a local restaurant, it's a lovely way to share a great meal with friends and family. See below for some of our favourite brunch spots, where local food's part of the menu!
What does seem certain is that the word "brunch"--that playful blend of "breakfast" and "lunch"-- first appeared in print in an 1895 Hunter's Weekly article. In "Brunch: A Plea," British author Guy Beringer suggested an alternative to the heavy, post-church Sunday meals in favour of lighter fare served late in the morning. ''Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting,'' Beringer says. ''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.''
