Wichita’s latest family-style restaurant is Auntie Mae’s Attic & Cafe at 9125 W. Central.
It opened a little over a week and offers offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cafe’s owners recently relocated their Auntie Mae’s Attic s antique store from Delano to the bigger building and decided to open a café, too. Menu items includes traditional breakfast fare, sandwiches and diner specialties such as meatloaf, fried pork chops and country fried steak. They also served hot cinnamon rolls daily. Hours are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 316-263-1800.
A string of these types of homespun cafes have opened this year, including Kinfolk Cafe, which opened in late March in the former Nifty Kitchen spot at 1815 S. Broadway. It’s open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays and specializes in breakfast and diner-style dinners, including chicken fried steak, burgers and more. For more information, call 316-263-1468.
There’s also On the Fly Family Restaurant, which opened at 1215 W. Pawnee back in February. Owned by Chris & Sheila Hare, it also specializes in breakfast and dishes such as chicken fried steak. An interesting fact about that restaurant: Servers will bring food over to an attached smoke shop, meaning diners can get around the no-smoking rule in that section. Hours are 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays; 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 316-977-9277.
