Brunch is quickly becoming the new dinner! While a lot of us have come to believe it as a cool and hip dining trend, its origin began in the late nineties. A hybrid of breakfast and lunch, it’s the perfect meal for when you’re not feeling too hungry but craving some really good food. On top of that, everyone knows that food tastes even better when you’re downing some bubbles so here are some of our favorite boozy brunch spots you can find here in the 852!
