According to one theory, "brunch" was a term coined in Britain in 1895 by writer Guy Beringer to describe a Sunday meal for "Saturday-night carousers." Whether fact or fiction fortunately for us, people on this side of the "pond" seem to have run with it and have discovered that brunch affords a pleasant social gathering - as a group affair with friends and family, or simply as a quiet breakfast.
St Petersburg/Clearwater offers a host of options where you can "do" brunch. Iconic resorts such as the Don DeSar and Vinoy® Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club are logical places for combining elegance and class with bountiful brunch buffets in their signature restaurants, while cozy bistros like Frog Pond, Clear Sky Café and Sweet Sage Café (which even features a special menu for the dogs in your family) offer a blend of more home-style breakfast options.
The choices along these sunny shores are many. Whether you feel like dressing up - or down - you're sure to be satisfied with what you'll find. Fortunately, many of these eateries come with memorable ocean views!
