Rainy day brunch with C at Cafe Maude. We split the huevos rancheros and spinach/egg/feta/basmati dish, both quite satisfying. Love when friends have similar food tastes and want to splitsy. (Ames!!)
As Steph and I once concluded during a random conversation: brunch is the foundation of love. You don’t network or meet strangers over brunch, and I would certainly never make brunch for a casual acquaintance.
Brunch is to be enjoyed with your nearest and dearest on lazy weekend afternoons - discussing both frivolous and profound topics, rehashing weekend shenanigans & just generally basking in your friendship/love/warmth. Brunch is intimate and comfortable. Brunch is for besties.
