Girard on Girard Moving to Breakfast and Brunch Only

avocado-toast-girardJust in time for its first anniversary, Girard on Girard is shifting its concept to focus on daily breakfast and brunch only. The change goes into effect on Tuesday, December 1st and will feature a new menu as well as new hours.

The BYOB will open daily at 7 a.m., serving coffee, breakfast sandwiches, house-made pastries and morning specials.

Chef and owner Brian Oliveira says he’s “listened to what the neighborhood told us they wanted, which was a more casual place where they could relax, grab a coffee, and enjoy our popular brunch menu all week long.”

Looks like workout/brunch hybrids are officially a thing, and we are not mad about it all. A few weeks ago, we told you about a new monthly yoga-and-breakfast club at Hydro+Pose, and weeks before that, Animo hosted a yoga-and-brunch class at their Center City location. Now, Animo has a few more fitness-and-brunch shindigs coming up, and Lisa Ransing from Full Moon Fare (Remember her? She was behind this Namaste for Dinner yoga series.) is teaming up with South Kensington’s new Paperbox Yoga Studio for a yoga class followed by brunch in December. See? I told you workout/brunch hybrids are officially a thing.

Below, all the info on the upcoming sweaty brunch gatherings at Animo and Paperbox. Go, sign up to get your sweat (and mimosa) on. Read more »
