One of my absolute favorite things to do on weekends (or anytime really, weekends are just most cooperative) is to meet friends for a lazy brunch. Brunch groups and geographic locations change, but my affinity for brunch is a constant.
1.) Servers are most aware of the level of coffee in my cup at brunch. Admittedly, it could be that I am least aware of my coffee to exposed cup ratio at brunch, but I’m generally pretty aware of that situation.
2.) Regardless of their dietary constraints – e.g., Atkins, Celiac, vegetarian, food allergies, weight watchers – my buddies are always able to find something they not only can eat, but also want to eat, at brunch.
3.) While there are sometimes surprises, brunch is a pretty honest and consistent meal. Sure there are fancy pancakes, but when one orders scrambled eggs, one tends to get just that: scrambled eggs.
4.) Exceptions exist, but there is no need to get all fancy for a standard diner brunch. Brunch is honest, straight-forward, and mascara free.
5.) Post-brunch naps are particularly satisfying.
