If you’re not at brunch ordering chicken and waffles with a fruit salad on the side while downing bottomless mimosas and taking Instagram photos on Sunday, then what are you actually doing? Step your Millenial game up and get in those reclaimed wood tables and booths before it’s dinner time.
For everyone who knows this essential truth deep in their soul, then this is the fire brunch content for you. These tweets and memes perfectly sum up how brunch makes a good morning and a hungover evening. Just get an espresso on the way out and you’ll be fine.
She’s Fine. She’s Just Tired.
Brunch friends have a code — don’t get kicked out no matter what, especially if the waffles haven’t arrived yet. It can be hard though when you’ve been there through multiple bottomless rounds and multiple orders of those side hashbrowns to get you through the morning. When you feel yourself slipping just don’t make eye contact with the server.
This is a situation that calls for sunglasses. Thankfully, you might be brunching on a patio so your friend can wear these no problem. But if you’re indoors you just have to play it cool and order another coffee.
Just Stay Until Someone Kicks You Out
The thing that makes brunch so special is that you wish it would never end. The minute you get there and get your first sip of coffee you realize you want to plan your whole day around this event. You can too, we believe in you.
This power move is treating the restaurant like your own home, and why not? We all need to decompress after a big meal and get ourselves ready to eat again. Just tip well and the world is your oyster, baby.
The Move When They Think You Brunch Too Much
Focus on your real goals — quality brunch time. People are going to walk into your life and try and distract you from what’s really important and you can’t let them do that. That means breaking into that photo edit tool on Snapchat to pretend you’re at the gym because that’s how dedicated you are to your brunch time.
Whoever asked them where they were needs to reevaluate their own lives. They should be asking themselves why they’re not picking up a sweet dollar meal breakfast deal. That $3 McGriddle is the only goal we have for the morning.
Me @ Me When My Friends Can’t Make It
Brunch like no one’s watching, brunch like no one’s paying, and brunch like your friends didn’t show up. Is it sad they didn’t come? Absolutely not. If you can brunch by yourself then that’s a sign of a true adult.
This is a really adorable photo of the sweetest old man and we can all relate to this move. Next time your girl Susan is running an hour late just prop your phone up and watch her Instagram story from the night before and it’ll be like she’s there.
When Brunch Just Turns Into Day Drinking
Who’s really got anywhere to be on Sunday? Literally everything’s closed and you’d probably be going back to bed after the brunch date anyway, so just turn it into a day. Besides, bosses are always telling us we need to be able to pivot into different roles at work, so practice that pivoting by turning your Sunday brunch into a pregame.
We’re all thinking this in the back of our heads the minute we sit down. Nobody wants to be the first one to say it… but it’s going to happen.
You Didn’t Miss Sunday Brunch But Your Bank Account Wishes You Did
We all make sacrifices to follow our dreams. It’s buying that cheap apartment above a bar to save money and it’s brunching on Sunday despite knowing your wallet is empty. Strive for what you want.
This is my bank account to me, my waistline to me, my sleep schedule to me, and my unanswered texts from my mom to me. This look burns and reminds of all the things we’re letting go by getting that $23 huevos rancheros. You better believe we’re just not going to think about it.
Me @ My Besties Pitching A Brunch Date
Listen, brunch is where it all goes down. It’s where you learn who’s seeing who, who’s not seeing you, and who’s best friend cut them out of the wedding party last minute. The brunch table is the sacred cone of silence where you all get educated on each other’s lives while getting fed.
Snooki is right on the money here. None of us want to see people and talk if we can’t also do that while eating eggs benny. Extra hollandaise please, I think Cheryl’s going to bring up her divorce.
“It’s Just A Heachache Mom”
Doug the Pug is our favorite internet dog who’s always serving hot n’ ready moods for us to relate to. This brunch mood just hits different though and has us shaking our heads at our own memories. Douglas tweets, “when ur hungover at brunch with the fam.”
Nothing against brunch with the fam — it’s delicious, it’s usually free, and you get to see them. The major downside is that they’re concerned about you and ask you why you “seem sick” today. Just keep the sunglasses on and blame the common cold.
When There’s No Palm Fronds Or Neon Sign In The Background Ughhh
Okay, so, brunch places are supposed to be nice. It’s become basically a requirement if you want your business to do well by this point. If there’s not vinyl booths, some sort of cute diner theme, or a reclaimed modern art sculpture of a pig standing in the corner, then we’re just going to walk right out.
Nobody’s ever taken an Instagram worthy brunch photo at iHop and that’s a fact. You have to do your research to find those places with vibes.
The Haunting Of HillAllYouCanEatBrunchBuffet
Sometimes brunch can be a ghostly experience. Whether it’s seeing your friend Steve resurrected from the dead after he was dancing on the tables last night, or seeing your grad-student friend finally come out from their research cave for an event, brunch can be spooky. Just don’t let yourself get haunted.
We’ve all been haunted by this ghost. They follow you around and basically put words in your mouth and make you talk about your ex. Just get a quick sage done and pass out in bed and they’ll pass on.
Know Your Limits, Play Within It
Every bottomless brunch mimosa should come with a caution sign attached and a waiver. We get so into our chats and how good those mimosas taste that we forget that there’s literal champagne in them.
When you stand up you definitely feel it. What started as a nice beginning to your day has quickly turned into your entire day because now you’re way too out of it to do anything else. Honestly, we should just start pre-booking Uber to arrive after the mimosa jug is empty.
Baby Gap Is Ruthlessly Flexing On All Of Us
Part of city living is realizing that people actually buy those $200 outfits from Baby Gap and OshKosh for their infants. You see these adorable little babies around and you’re equal parts impressed and self-conscious. How did they afford the Gucci sneakers you wanted?
These hipster babies don’t even know what IPA stands for. How dare they rock the millenial-plant mom-sailor tattoo-plaid shirt look without knowing anything about the culture. We’re offended but we’re also going home to change.
Should We Get An Extra Plate To Split? Let’s Get An Extra Plate To Split.
The menus at your favorite spot make everything sound so amazing, but the downside is that you can’t order it all. That’s fine right? Everything’s fine. Just dab your tears with your rye toast while you stare longingly at your friend’s steak n’ eggs.
Mr. Affleck, there is no bigger regret. Once you’ve chosen sweet or savory you’re locked in for the rest of the meal and your tastebuds are permanently used to one or the other for the rest of the day.
*Sips Water Quietly And Pretends Not To Be Listening*
We all brunch, folks. When you walk into the spot, you’re going to see families, students, senior citizens, best friends, and couples galore. A perk of dating is that you have a brunch partner always. But a downside is that they can make or break your brunch experience.
Couples, either sort it out before you go or make it so juicy to give us some entertainment at the meal. We want Real Housewives level tears, drama, and even drink throwing. Bacon just tastes better when it’s been marinated in theatrics.
Learn ‘Em Young About The Splendors Of Brunch
The first time you learned about brunch it was a life-changing experience. It was equally as exciting as learning that people actually could eat breakfast for dinner. Pancakes acceptable after 9am? Sign all of us starry-eyed children up for that.
We’re witnessing a moment seconds before a child gets their mind absolutely blown. Get ready little one because this is the first day of the rest of your life. Every day just gets a little brighter knowing that chocolate chip waffles could be your 1pm friend.
Someone Look At Me The Way I Look At The Mimosa Pitcher
She is a thing of beauty. We all hear Frank Sinatra crooning in our heads when we see that mimosa jug making its way down the aisle to our table. Somebody pinch me because I’m wondering if she’s real.
Making eye contact with the waiter at this point is like seeing an old friend. They give us that weary grin as they place the jug down and pat our shoulder because they truly know what’s about to happen. Our hearts are so full at this moment.
If You Didn’t Brunch All The Time Were You Even A Student?
Listen, Sunday morning brunch is glorious — we all know that. But you’re truly living the student life with your schedule full of gaps and night classes if you brunch any day of the week. Pretty much any text you get around 10 am is from your friend who just left Statistics class asking if you want to eat.
Literally any occasion is perfect for brunch. It can be a celebration, a wake-up, or even a come down from the wild night before. All you need to do is whisper the magic word and every student comes running.
Brunch Logic But All The Time
The best part of brunch is right in its name — it’s the happy medium between two great things. It’s perfect for those of us who can’t make decisions. Here’s a genius who’s taking what they learned at the buffet to the rest of their life.
This is innovative and we love it. The only thing that’s not so great is the name. “Fummer” sounds like a medical condition or the part of your car you ripped off last weekend because it was making a sound. You know what’s always in season? Avocado toast.
It’s A Special Occasion, Treat It As Such
If you’re not in your finery at the brunch date then what exactly are you doing? Brunch is for people looking to dress to impress with their high-waisted culottes and cork wedges. They’re out here ready to take photos and slay those Instagram likes.
This meme is everything. This man came ready and willing to strike a pose and get that perfect angle at every opportunity. The hat turned sideways communicates that he’s the brunch icon we’ve all been waiting for.
Home Means Bringing The Brunch Energy To Last Night’s Leftovers
Sometimes you can’t go to brunch. Maybe you woke up too late, maybe it’s a holiday and everything’s closed, or maybe you’ve got some leftover Italian food in the fridge that’s speaking your name. Don’t worry, brunch is more of a state of mind than a destination.
She’s got her eyes rolled back in happy anticipation about how that leftover carbonara is going to taste. That day-old, cold, goopy cheese is the stuff dreams are made of and we support her following hers.
