Take the words "breakfast" and "lunch" and put them together to form the word "brunch." When Americans go out for brunch, they eat a combination of breakfast and lunch food. The time for a brunch (10:30 to 11 a.m.) is in the middle of the morning between when you’d normally eat breakfast (8 a.m.) and lunch (12 noon).
A croissant and orange juice go well together when eating brunch.
