Food ideas and recipes for brunch are available from websites such as CountryLiving.com and RachaelRayMag.com, while already prepared brunch foods are available from some local restaurants, catering companies and retailers with a bakery and/or deli. In-store bakeries often have bagels, donuts, danishes and coffee cakes. Meat and cheese trays, dips, vegetable platters and fruit trays are often sold in the deli and produce departments.
