You might be surprised at what's popped up at Mother Hubbard’s since Kelzi Bartholomaei bought the place.
"It's still a breakfast-and-lunch joint, but I've taken some of the greasiness out of the spoon," said Bartholomaei, who bought the restaurant at 14 W. Grant Road last April. "My tastes are pretty eclectic."
Take the breakfast hamburger topped with hash browns and a fried egg, or the "Traveler," a burger topped with pineapple and orange-ginger-Thai-pepper sauce. There are also four kinds of homemade sausage, and reuben sandwiches are made from corned beef brined in-house.
“The last thing I wanted to do was two eggs hash browns and toast, but you can still get that,” says Bartholomaei, adding that the restaurant's signature $1.99 breakfast special is still available from 6 to 8 a.m.
There are also fresh homemade biscuits and pecan-cinnamon rolls on most days and a number of unique versions of eggs Benedict on weekends.
Hours are 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Saturday; and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday.
