Hi EC,

>do people have brunch only on sundays?

That's the only time we have brunch in our household.

>what about in Madrid?

If we were to visit Madrid, Sunday would be the only day that we would have brunch.

I'm guessing that Sunday is the only day brunch is offered by restaurants or hotels, most likely to draw people in on a slower 'eat out' day. Weekdays are busy with workers and business travelers, no need to glorify breakfast those days..

New York seems to be the only place I've recently noted places advertising brunch on Saturday as well as Sunday. But I never see brunch for Monday through Friday anywhere.

Meanwhile in Spain, I don't recall brunch being much of a thing at all. Huge Sunday dinner in the very early afternoon after the family goes to church seems much more usual.

Brunch is not really a european thing at all. You will usually find only at hotels that cater to Americans - and definitely not all week.

Recently back from Madrid I agrre with nytraveler and wish to add that breakfasts in all of the Spanish hotels we stayed in were absolutely fantastic. Not only they had all of the usual, but smoked salmon, potato tortilla, all kinds of cold cuts, all kinds of cheeses, of course eggs, bacon, etc etc. frutis, several kind of juices,al kinds of breads, cakes,compotes,local products .....no champagne though, but great breakfast all the time.

Actually, Europeans do like brunches but they are something special. The Waldstätterhof in Brunnen has a great brunch on Sundays with a gorgeous view to boot. Reservations are needed because they are usually sold out. And not an American in sight.

"And not an American in sight."

I suppose that aspect alone thrills a lot of people doesn't it?

Replace the word "an" with "another" and the ones that will be most thrilled will be Americans. I think Americans tend to make a bigger deal out of not seeing other Americans than most locals do -- who couldn't often care less.
