A brunch is a late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast and lunch. Weekend brunch have their important place as we dont have enough time to have our breakfast or lunch together during the week days.

However most of our brunch will definitely have either muffins or cookies loaded with both fruits and chocolates, as we are ardent fan of chocolates.
