Brunch is a North American innovation. It is a lavish breakfast served at or even after midday, invariably as part of an entertainment.

A brunch (the term is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch) can be served after a morning event or prior to an afternoon one, such as a wedding or sporting event. It usually involves vast quantities of standard breakfast foods such as eggs, pancakes, sausages, bacon, ham, fruit salad, pastries, waffles, and the like.

Some restaurants and hotels serve brunch, especially on Sunday.
