The painting portrays a table covered by a creased cloth, on which lie two pomegranates and a piece of bread. People attending the lunch include an aged man on the left and a young man on the right, while, in the background, an apparently carefree boy pours wine into a jug.
On the wall in the background hang a white neck-band, a leather bag and, on the right, a sword.
The Lunch is nearly identical to another painting by Velázquez, The Farmers' Lunch (1618).
