Everybody combines meals at one time or another. Admit it, you’ve given in to Linner, Dupper, Linch, Dunch or Lupper at some point or another. But we all know the best TRUE meal combination is BRUNCH! (You know, the breakfast/lunch combo that Sundays are famous for?)
Invented by Englishman Guy Beringer in the 1890s, brunch was a stomach-easing, alcohol drinking, social-making combined meal so that nobody with a hangover had to get up too early. Genius. Too close to breakfast? You called it “brunch.” Too close to lunch? You called it “blunch.” Brunch became popular in the United States in the 1930s and Americans realized that it didn’t matter what it was called so long as there was a Bloody Mary or Mimosa included. So when you’re partaking in this famous combo, do us a favor will you? Raise a toast to Guy Beringer, the Hangover Healer!
Parkside District serves up delish dishes for brunch! Straight from their menu, try the Crab Cake Benedict or the Avocado Toast. Don’t forget your tribute to Guy Beringer with a house-made Red Sangria infused with cinnamon and brandy.
THE BRUNCH APOTHECARY
Guy would be so proud of this nod to his hangover cure (remedies galore at ye ole fashioned drug store)! Be sure to try the Southern Monte Cristo or the Biscuit Casserole, which is filled with the chef’s choice of ingredients each day. Quench your thirst with a non-alcoholic Agave Vanilla Cream Soda.
THREE BLIND MICE
Not just for Sundays anymore, TBM has brunch on Saturdays, too! Let’s get to the most important thing…jazz and $12 bottomless mimosas. Woo hoo! Perfect for drinks and socializing, the food is awesome, too. Order the Low-Country Shrimp and Grits or French Toast to go with your mimosas.
SUGAR HILL BAKERY
CAFÉ SUGAR HILL
A place that serves brunch all day = absolute heaven! Be sure to order The Josh AND the Chocolate French Toast. Grab a Sugarhillville mimosa or two, too—a collaboration of peach juice and champagne that will quench your thirst and just make you feel better.
With delicious fare and creative cocktails, brunch is on the top of the list at Marlow’s. Don’t go without having a Marlow’s “BLT” Bloody Mary (it’s definitely the bacon vodka that provides a cure-all), and the best hangover remedy by far is good ole’ southern, house-made Chicken and Waffles.
VERSAILLES AT CHATEAU ELAN
Versailles’ spectacular brunch menu is not to be taken lightly. Served in the newly renovated, incredibly gorgeous Chateau Elan atrium, it’s a must for all dedicated brunch buffs. A large selection of buffet items await guests in the ultimate lap of luxury. Keep in mind that kids 6-11 years old are half price, so everyone can enjoy the joy and health of a good brunch.
