Where to Brunch on Cape Cod

Brunch, the playful combination of breakfast and lunch, has become increasingly popular over the past few years. In fact, if you do a quick search on social media sites such as Twitter or Instagram for #Brunch, you’ll find millions of results. Brunch has become an art form.

A recent study by Oxford University found that it’s less about the food itself than the atmosphere and the company. Brunch tends to be done on the weekends when you have fewer responsibilities and you can take your time to enjoy your meal. People tend to linger over their meals having conversation with a larger group of people. The study found that the exact same food and drink will taste better depending on the environment and company.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up a few of our picks of where to brunch (yes, it’s a verb) on Cape Cod. We’ve left out some breakfast spots because to us, it’s just not brunch if there are no mimosas in hand.
