Fancy starting you day with an English Breakfast, but on a pizza? Okay, so that may not quite be what’s on offer at the Sodo Walthamstow weekend brunches. But it’s not far off. Instead, they’re offering up brunch pizzas that take inspiration from typical English Breakfast items.
And yes, we can hear the cries from here: “hipster nonsense!” “Pizza gone mad!” “What happened to the good old days of pepperoni?” But calm down. They’re not just throwing a Cumberland on some dough and calling it a day. They’re showing their brunch pies the same care and consideration they do the rest of their menu. Taking the place of breakfast delights such as sausage, bacon, mushroom and eggs are nduja (a caseless spicy Calabrian sausage), pancetta, and… well… mushroom and eggs. Meanwhile, the veggie version brings onion and sun-blushed tomatoes into the equation to replace the nduja and pancetta.
But there’s more than just brunch pizzas on offer at Sodo Walthamstow’s weekend brunches. For the sweet-toothed there are two French Toast options – including one salty and sweet delight that throws pancetta into the mix. And for the savoury-inclined there’s a Pulled Pork Brioche, baked egg delights, and plenty more. They’ll also be offering up some classic brunch drinks, with Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and Nitro Espresso Martinis available.
We’ve also got it on good authority (they told us) that brunch will soon be coming to Sodo Bethnal Green. And if you’re South of the river, it won’t be long until you’ve got your own Sodo location. They’re bringing their pies and wines to a Deptford location soon – and they’ll even bring their brunch menu with them!
Until then, however, we’re more than happy to keep going back to one of their handful of locations to stuff our faces with their delicious sourdough pizzas and sip on glasses of the gorgeous natural wines they offer.
Brunches at Sodo Walthamstow are available from 10am-2pm Saturday and Sunday. For brunch reservations, they recommend calling direct, during opening hours, at 020 8520 1244. Check out their website to find out more.
