I wonder if it really is that simple?

That just sounds like lunch then.

I'm not familiar with this.

To my mind, "brunch" is just a late, lingering, expansive breakfast. The menu items are typically what one would exclusively associate with breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausage, muffins and pastries, waffles, pancakes, french toast, etc.

You did it wrong.

Yeah okay, but you could have linked to any menu at Ruby Tuesday and induced equal disgust.

Do a google image search for "girls brunch" and you'll see why this phenomenon is so disquieting.

Sarabeth's is the type of place that has really solid food and could be an enjoyable brunch experience if it weren't for the novelty of brunch among a certain demographic.

Anyways, this is my favorite brunch, and the crowd is only slightly annoying and always absent of children: http://www.canele-la.com/brunch/

Say what you will, but the pork and apricot sausage is fantastic. Very porky.

Also, as I'm sure you're aware, dim sum is just Chinese brunch.

what about waking up at 7am-9am and eating so much breakfast food that you're queasy and lethargic that you just sleep into the afternoon? from there you just go into an early dinner. isn't that brunch because there's overlap... and lack of an actual lunch....

edit: the AzNs will often have huge SLR lensed cameras and take pictures of their food in the morning.... there's nothing more irritating than listening to the caucasian hipsters calling their friends/family and bragging about the brunch they're eating and SLR camera shutters clicking in the background while trying to eat.
