UPDATED MARCH 2020
Known for its elevated southern fare and perfect downtown locale, Soco Thornton Park had us jumping for joy when it extended its very popular Sunday brunch to Saturday. Guests can enjoy everything from homemade pop tarts and strawberry stuffed French toast to lobster benny and southern fried chicken and waffles. Additionally, you can add
bottomless mimosas for only $15 (with the purchase of an entree). The menus for brunch and brunch cocktails remain the same for both Saturday and Sunday, giving you double the opportunity to partake in the deliciousness.
Executive Chef/Partner Greg Richie recently invited us to check out his new Saturday brunch and we happily obliged.
FOOD Begin with the house cold brew coffee, which comes with homemade almond cream (absolutely delicious). New flavors, including butter pecan, are on the horizon.
Homemade “Pop Tart” Pastries are a great starter for those with a sweet tooth. Flavors change weekly, making every visit a special treat!

The Lobster Eggs Benedict, which is served atop a biscuit, was very hearty and didn't skimp on the lobster one bit. Crispy Salmon-Potato Cakes are a lighter brunch option: Poached Eggs, Arugula, Caper Butter Sauce. Image credit: Arlene Laboy The sinfully indulgent Chicken -N- French Toast had us gobbling up every last bite: Maple Sorghum Butter, Almond Granola, Pink Peppercorn, Whipped Cream. Image credit: Arlene Laboy The incredible Soco Cauliflower “Steak” is a menu staple also available during brunch: Asparagus, Artichoke, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Vine Ripe Tomato Gravy.
