It looks like Crozet is going to have a breakfast place!

They will open at 5:30 am Monday through Saturday, and this is a sample of their breakfast menu:

The Good Ole Boy Breakfast- 2 eggs cooked to order and served with your choice of 2, bacon, sausage, fried Bologna corned beef hash or Country ham. Plus a choice of sausage gravy or home fries. And a choice of Biscuits, white or wheat toast.

The Sunrise Breakfast- 2 eggs cooked to order with your choice of 1, bacon, sausage, fried Bologna corned beef hash or Country ham. Plus a choice of sausage gravy or home fries. And a choice of Biscuits, white or wheat toast.

  1. Southern–style breakfast (way too heavy of calories!) is not my idea of delicious, but that explains the high obesity and diabetes rate here. It works for people who do physically intense work during the rest of the day, but for others? Waiting for the Green Coffee House to open for breakfast alternatives…

  2. We are open to any suggestions for other alternatives for breakfast. We want to appeal to EVERYONE. Lat us know what else you’d like to see on our menu and we’ll try to make it happen.
    Allie, Thanks for pointing them in the direction of our menu….that was the 1st menu (it’s been tweaked), it’s pretty much the same just a few additions.

  3. Had dinner there recently and would love to see this place do well, but I think they’re going to need to make some changes in order to do so. First and foremost: hire waitstaff. Family members are nice in a crunch and they were extremely friendly, but good waitstaff know how to work efficiently, and they are your front lines as a restaurant owner. A customer is not likely to make a return visit, especially not with their family, if it takes 15 minutes to even take their drink order and another 5 to get the drinks (two sodas and a water) when there were only two other tables there. To be fair, they may have been unexpectedly short-staffed that night. Also, they may spend less time refilling drinks if they used bigger glasses for tea/water/soda. I’m guessing this may have been an asset purchase from Teresa’s, but a new restaurant should have new child seats – the first one we had was totally split at a joint in the wood that could have caused a pretty good pinch on little fingers.
    Other suggestions involve creating a better atmosphere: less harsh lighting in the dining room at night, background music at low volume (it was silent except for the TV in the bar area), umbrellas on the patio. I’d comment on the food but we only ordered basic sandwiches fearing that an entree would take too long, though I liked the menu options for a casual dinner.
    Succeeding in the restaurant business is hard enough when you’re firing on all cylinders, and I think this has the potential to be a great restaurant (Breakfast! in Crozet!), but the details make a difference. Just my 0.02.

Something to say?
