The lunch menu isn’t available, but for breakfast, there are simple dishes like Greek yogurt served with pomegranate molasses, omelettes, sweet potato hash with burrata, and bacon/egg/cheese biscuit sandwiches (her homage to McDonald’s version). Breakfast is available from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. every day, with lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and then from 2 to 5 p.m. (the latter only at the bar).
