Brunch Buzz: Soco

Known for its elevated southern fare and perfect downtown locale, Soco recently announced that it would extend its very popular Sunday brunch to Saturday. Beginning Saturday, May 13, guests can enjoy everything from homemade pop tarts and strawberry stuffed French toast to lobster benny and southern fried quail and waffles. Bottomless mimosas for $10 are equally enticing.

A live DJ sets a chill, party vibe each week during Saturday brunch.

While the menus for brunch and brunch cocktails remain the same for both Saturday and Sunday, you’ll discover a live DJ outside on the patio on Saturdays. This creates a notably groovy vibe reminiscent of Hue’s bygone disco brunch (for those who recall Soco’s predecessor). The music, however, was never overpowering and simply made the space feel fun and relaxed. 

Executive Chef/Partner Greg Richie recently invited us to check out his new Saturday brunch and we happily obliged.

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.

The Everything “Bagel” Biscuit that accompanies the Sorghum Cured Salmon is a showstopper. Don’t miss it.

The Lobster Eggs Benedict, which is served atop a biscuit, was very hearty and didn’t skimp on the lobster one bit.

Florida Strawberry Stuffed Brioche French Toast. We loved this homage to Florida’s favorite fruit.
