If you’ve ever been seriously hungover on a Sunday morning, and craved for breakfast in bed, you have Guy Beringer to thank – an English writer who invented the “brunch” in 1895. While his invention took more than 30 years to catch up with the rest of the world, about 117 years later, I can’t help but marvel at the brilliance of the idea. Of course, I want to wake up late on Sunday and of course I want my first meal to gradually progress from a pancake to eggs to grilled meat. And of course I want to meet other hungover people and discuss my tales of debauchery from the night before and of course, I want to finish the delicious spread with a beer or two!

There are a lot of places in our panoptic city that dole out wonderful spreads over weekends and hence it is with great love and care that I present my list of some of the best brunching places in Mumbai that you can try this weekend –
