Brunch in Bastrop

September 16, 2022 6:59 pm Published by

Back in the 1890s, upper-class English men were known to spend Saturdays at grand parties and endure the celebrations into the wee hours of Sunday morning. These guys basically invented “brunch” so they could sleep late on Sunday morning and still enjoy the best parts of both breakfast and lunch. So according to history, men who enjoyed lively, lengthy parties in the 1890s made brunch an informal Sunday tradition in England that became popular in US cities in the 1920s.

Today, brunch is bigger than ever. It’s not quite breakfast, and it’s not quite lunch, but it’s 100% a perfect fit for Sunday mornings, especially in Bastrop. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as enjoying a delicious meal with a brunch beverage on Sunday as the day unfolds slowly in front of you. 

Here are a few places you can try and see for yourself just how special Brunch in Bastrop is:
