Did you ever wonder how brunch was invented? Have you ever heard the name Guy Beringer? If you haven’t, then thank him right away, as he is the genius who invented brunch. The inspiration for his dear invention was his own hangover.
Beringer, an English author, proposed the concept of this combination meal in his essay “Brunch: A Plea” which he penned in 1895. The essay was written to assist those who nursed hangovers on Sunday morning from the night before. We’ve been drinking Bloody Marys and enjoying brunch ever since. Hope you enjoy brunch — right here in Columbus.
This classic breakfast item is served up with fresh brioche bread, a trio of berries and delicately sweet whipped cream. It’s the perfect way to start your day!
