Brunch-focused restaurant The Funkadelic is now open in Sunset Valley. It’s located at 4715 South Lamar Boulevard, in the same complex as Cow Tipping Creamery and Cane Rosso.
The restaurant was formerly known as The Funky Brunch before, according to Instagram, it underwent “an emotional and educational crash course in trademark law” (there’s a restaurant with the same name out in Savannah, Georgia). At the helm of The Funkadelic is chef Michael Wake, who previously worked at Whole Foods for 14 years.
Funkadelic’s menu is composed of shareable bites (like nachos and funnel cake bites), entrees, and salads. Larger plates include breakfast classics like pancakes and breakfast tacos (available on wheat, corn, or almond flour tortillas), as well as more inventive dishes like churro waffles and pupusas (thick tortillas stuffed with queso fresco).
The Funkadelic is still planning to offer cooking classes and other events at a later date. The restaurant is open from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. daily, though these hours may vary while staff is getting trained.
