Souvla, one of my favorite lunch (and dinner) spots in Hayes Valley recently announced that they will start serving BRUNCH on weekends, how excited am I?! Launching this Saturday, November 15, the menu will feature four items, two savory and two sweet.

I was lucky enough to be invited to their media preview this past weekend and check out the menu. We started with the savory dishes, Sausage: Yianni's Loukaniko, Halloumi Cheese, Hard-Boiled Eggs, Bell Pepper, Onion, Harissa-Spiked Yogurt and Pita and Lamb & Eggs: Breakfast Sandwich, Scrambled Eggs & Lamb, Radish, Tomato, Onion, Avogolemono (an egg and lemon sauce), Garlic Yogurt and Feta Cheese. Both dishes were delicious and a perfect weekend hangover cure!

After savory we moved onto the sweet dishes. First, for the health conscious, Yogurt: Strauss Organic Greek Yogurt, Seasonal Market Fruits (Persimmons in this case), Fresh Mint Toasted Hazelnuts and Cretan Wildflower Honey and finally the more 'desserty' option, Toast: Greek Toast, Cinnamon & Sugar-Dusted Crispy Pita, Sour Cherry Syrup and Frozen Greek Yogurt. I've never been a huge fan of Persimmons but after Sunday I can honestly say I'm a believer. The Toast I believe speaks for itself.  

And of course, like any other healthy brunch, there will be alcohol! Souvla will offer two alcoholic beverages, Greek Brunch Punch with Vissino and Mint which will be served in a pitcher for four, it can also be ordered by the glass and a Greek Rose: Zoe Rose, Peloponnese 2013 which is in a 250mL carafe. There is also of course American Coffee and Greek Orange Soda.

Brunch will be available Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Fingers crossed they start serving breakfast during the week!) 

Tip: I urge you to run, not walk, this weekend to Soulva and check out it out!
