Breakfast is back — everyday — at Brent’s.

The 70 year-old diner has announced their spring and summer schedule to include a 7 a.m. start Monday — Friday (and 8 a.m. on Saturdays).

“We want to be a gathering place for anyone and everyone and there’s truly nothing like starting your day among friends,” says Amanda Wells, one of the owners of Brent’s.”

Wells says a classic breakfast is what diners have asked for. “My personal favorites are the Breakfast Melt, which is a steal at $5. It’s bacon, fried egg, American cheese, and Texas toast. I also love our Breakfast Tacos ($6) – three soft flour tortillas filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheddar, and house-made salsa verde.”

Other options include omelets any way; classics like eggs, bacon, breakfast potatoes, and fruit; and pancakes.

Sundays are a bit different with a brunch menu served from 10 a.m. — 3 p.m.. Wells calls it a “melding of our breakfast and lunch menus.”

Standouts include the chicken and waffles ($12), French Toast ($7) and the Brunch Patty Melt, topped with grilled onions, fried egg, pimento cheese, and mustard ($10).

Like many small mom-and-pop operations, Wells says, at Brent’s, it’s been a roller coaster. “Grit and determination are key, but even more than that, surrounding ourselves with people that are just as committed has been the game changer.”

Wells cites the hard work of General Manager Sarah Friedler and her staff. “The majority of them love Brent’s as much as we do and it shows in the way they serve the community with a smile on their face,” she adds.

As for the updated schedule and return of an early morning start, Wells says, “We hope to see breakfast really take off and become a regular spot for our customers and we can hopefully keep it going through the Fall and Winter, depending on the demand.”

The breakfast menu is available Monday — Friday — 7 a.m.- 10 a.m.; Saturday — 8 a.m. — 5 p.m.; and Sunday Brunch — 10 a.m. — 3 p.m..

Brent’s hours are Monday — Thursday — 7 a.m. — 5 p.m.; Friday — 7 a.m. — 8 p.m. ; Saturday — 8 a.m. — 5 p.m.; Sunday Brunch — 10 a.m. — 3 p.m.
