Its origin is from old Britain where the term was first spoken by students as a
fashionable slang term for a later morning meal after a long night. The written
word "brunch" was first documented in the late 19th century by
British writer, Guy Beringer, in an essay titled "Brunch: A Plea".
This plea was encouraging a later brunch eating time for those that attended
church on Sunday mornings and were tardy for breakfast. It also was a plea for
those that were up late reveling on Saturday night and needed a delayed start
time to Sunday morning.
This plea was heard and whether you fit into one of those extremes or somewhere
in between, brunch has grown into a popular dining event. It is a time for
groups to gather over a special meal, or for individuals to create time to
appreciate different flavors.
Our menu addresses all points on the spectrum, as well as the sweet and savory
cravings, with classic New Mexican dishes that have added elements of whimsy. We
have also created some original plates to catch your eye and tempt your tongue.
We enjoy brunch at Slate Street and serve on Saturdays and Sundays.
