Mother’s Day at “The SOUK”

Sunday, May 14 (9:30 – 3:00)

Stop by “The SOUK” on Mother’s Day for a unique and unforgettable brunch experience. Spend the afternoon in conversation browsing the gallery and gardens or lingering in the warm greenhouse enjoying ready-to-eat items such as a avocado toast with an edible orchid, breakfast burritos, Middle Eastern “bagels”, croissants (with fresh brewed coffee and tea),  chicken & avocado waffles (with chipotle maple syrup), candied pork tacos, chicken tikka nan, falafel sandwich and healthy salads (Sabich or Kale Lacinato).

Pick up something decadent from Luxx Chocolat’s exquisitely designed award winning chocolates, a local handmade artisan item or an unusual tropical plant.
