Brunch — it’s a social phenomenon. The Sunday staple of the Millennial generation. Brunch is the place where 20-somethings gather on Sunday before the workweek begins again. It is a socially serendipitous adventure, in which every Millennial must attend.
As if going out on Friday and Saturday wasn’t enough, Sunday Brunch is the final hurrah of the weekend, the place where dressing up is not only essential, but also crucial. Where wearing your clothes from the night before and a light shade of mildly rubbed-off mascara isn’t really that bad because hey, you looked pretty good last night.
The hardest decision you may have to make for the day is Mimosas or Bloodys, Bloodys or Mimosas?

Jacksonville is a very brunch-friendly community, so there are tons of options for Sunday Funday.
