The Brunchery has become a staple for those in the Valrico and Lithia area, and the team genuinely enjoys serving the community.

If you are looking to sleep a few extra hours in the morning, then thank Guy Beringer, the man who coined the term ‘brunch’ back in 1885. Beringer wanted to enjoy a delicious breakfast-based meal after waking up but wanted to sleep in too; this caused him to often miss breakfast time. Instead, he decided to merge breakfast and lunch and call it brunch. If you are looking to get a tasty brunch close to home, thank these five spots for bringing all the options to the community.
