The Truth About What Your Brunch Order Says About You

A Beautiful Mess

Brunch is often, if not always, the most indulgent meal of the week. You lounge around the table for hours on end, you may consume one or more alcoholic beverages despite it being the middle of the day, and you usually aren't trying to be healthy about it. For all these reasons, we will always love brunch. We may not leave feeling our best, but every weekend, when Sunday morning rolls around, we know where we want to be come brunch o'clock: sitting at a table with our closest friends, rehashing last night's activities and stuffing ourselves silly.

Whether brunch is a weekly affair or just for special occasions, we usually order the same thing every time -- or at least the same dish or two. While we appreciate all brunch foods -- from pancakes to poached eggs -- and while we're typically all in favor of trying out new dishes, we're not overly adventurous at the brunch table. We have a handful of standbys we always gravitate toward, and while we may waffle in the moment, we never stray from our favorite orders. (Yes, we just used waffle as a verb and we're talking about brunch -- deal with it.)

What's your favorite brunch dish? The one you order Sunday after Sunday? Whatever your trusty brunch choice is, it probably says a lot about your personality. Find out what your brunch says about you:

  • Eggs Benedict
    Simply Recipes
    You're indulgent. "Living life to the fullest" means stuffing yourself at every meal. You're a cocktail at breakfast kind of person, so you'll definitely be washing down that eggs Benedict with a Bloody Mary.
  • Scrambled Eggs
    Brown Eyed Baker
    You're traditional -- sometimes to a fault. You're strong willed, which serves you well, but you need to push yourself to think outside the box more often.
  • Avocado Toast

    You're cool, intelligent and understated. You're not overly outgoing, so you don't have as many friends as you should, but you're a loyal, reliable friend to the ones you do have.
  • Pancakes
    Simply Recipes
    You always looks great, even if you're not always in the best mood or feeling so hot. You're also really approachable; people always seem to gravitate toward you, even if they don't know you well.
  • Breakfast Burrito
    Meals & Moves
    "Go big or go home" is your motto. You're a party animal and you're not ashamed to show it. Work comes second to your social life, even if that means showing up to the office still drunk the next morning.

    You're a New Yorker -- or you should be.
  • French Toast
    Passionate Penny Pincher
    You're a loving friend and family member. You're everyone's shoulder to cry on and you'll do anything for your friends. Sometimes you need to remember to put yourself first.
  • Bacon Egg and Cheese
    Just Putzing Around The Kitchen
    You're busy and productive but also know the value of unplugging and relaxing. You thrive on pressure but have no problem spending a weekend on the couch in front of the TV.
  • Croque Monsieur
