More Time for Pier Time

A wise man once said, “if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense,” and with that advice in mind, we’ve made the decision to discontinue daily Breakfast and Weekend Brunch service at the Pier location. Looks like no more #SundayFunday breakfast shifts from me on the Pier. Unfortunately, the response to offering a morning menu at the Pier hasn’t been what we’d hoped. After more than 3 years serving breakfast and brunch, we’ll shift our hours back to better serve the Island demographics of both locals and visitors. Who’da thunk that people enjoying watching our gorgeous sunsets while eating
