What is Brunch in Colorado?

Brunch is a fun combination of breakfast and lunch. Most people enjoy Sunday brunches after a Saturday evening on the town since you'll probably be sleeping in late.

Often times brunch is served with a fun alcoholic beverage, like a mimosa. Brunch beverages are the perfect pairing to your meal if you're looking to keep the good times rolling.

When is Brunch in Colorado?

Brunch can be enjoyed later than the average breakfast time and gives you the chance to combine your favorite sweet breakfast treat with something savory that you would typically enjoy for lunch.

My cousin claims that breakfast is whenever you wake up, whether it be 6 AM or 2 PM, but I think most people would agree breakfast ends before 11 AM.

That's where brunch steps in. Brunch is usually served between 11 AM to 2 PM, but if you look hard enough you can definitely find some places with longer brunch hours.

Those between the ages of 18-24 reported that their ultimate brunch time is from 11 AM to noon, while those 65 and over reported that 10 AM to 11 AM is the perfect brunch time.

How Do You Brunch in Colorado?

Surprisingly, data says that most brunchers (39%) order coffee as their beverage. The next most popular brunch beverage is plain ol' orange juice at 28%. Coming in third place is what is most often assumed as a brunch staple, the mimosa at 17.6%.

Now for the big question, do you go sweet or savory at brunch or try for a combination of both?

The data reveals that we're pretty indecisive when it comes to picking sweet, savory, or a combination of the two.

Personally, I go with the combo and stick to my favorite brunch meal, chicken and waffles.
