March 11, 2012 Ideas for What to Serve for Brunch

Nutmeg is not really a brunch person.  Here is why:

  • Marginal coffee, as you may have gathered coffee is very important to Nutmeg, and generally speaking buffet style eating does not lend itself to good espresso and skinny lattes.
  • In addition to the coffee issue, the question is what to serve?  It is not breakfast, it is not lunch – hence the dilemma.
  • If you go out to a restaurant with a buffet it is typically a complex spread that runs the gambit of breakfast food to roast beef.
  • Ask any parent with young kids brunch is a disaster. They need to eat earlier and there is no way to keep them in their “Sunday best” until mid-morning.
  • Then there is the issue of timing, not too early, not too late…around 11am is typical, which compromises both morning and afternoon activities.
