Formed by combining the words ‘breakfast’ and ‘lunch’, the word brunch was first recorded in use in 1895.
Unlike its name, however, the origins of the meal itself aren’t particularly clear and, as is the case with many traditions, there are a number of competing explanations for its origins. 
Brunch’s rise in popularity during the 1930s was likely due to a combination of popularity among movie stars and falling church attendance. 
Hotels saw a gap in the market on a day when many restaurants were closed and were quick to exploit it. 
Nowadays, brunch is popular particularly in bigger cities, where it’s usually eaten at some point between 11am and mid-afternoon, sometimes with alcoholic drinks like the mimosa, and almost always at a leisurely pace.
