Three new downtown breakfast options

B&C Barbecue in downtown Wichita recently introduced a breakfast buffet.

Wichita loves breakfast, and more and more, Wichita restaurants love to serve it.

Downtown Wichita is a breakfast eater’s paradise these days, what with The Beacon, Egg Cetera and Old Mill Tasty Shop and Rain’s weekend offerings.

Now, three more are joining the bacon-and-eggs fray.

Several weeks ago, Holy land Mediterranean Grill at 217 E. Douglas began offering a daily breakfast that offers traditional items such as omelets, bacon and eggs Benedict along with Mediterranean touches such as falafel and hummus. (I don’t know about you, but falafel and eggs sounds fabulous to me.) The breakfast is served a la carte and is available from 6 to 9 a.m. seven days a week.

Meanwhile, Carey Maurer has added a breakfast buffet at his  B&C Barbecue at 355 N. Washington. It’s served from 6 to 9 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays and includes dishes such as hashbrowns, pancakes, French toast sticks, scrambled eggs and more and is $8.25 a person.

Within the next week or two, Hamburger Hero at 221 S. Broadway, which I reviewed today, also will begin serving breakfast. It’ll offer bacon and eggs, pancakes and biscuits and gravy and will be offered from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

I’m still thinking about falafel and eggs.

Two more restaurants in the breakfast biz

Rain Cafe & Lounge recently started a Friday through Sunday brunch.

The more places cooking breakfast, the better. That’s how I see it.

Two more restaurants in the downtown vicinity share that outlook.

One is Rain Cafe & Lounge at 518 E. Douglas, which recently added brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Rain is serving a variety of breakfast combos, such as a two-egg breakfast with choice of meat and potato or a three-egg omelet with gyro meat and sides. Each combo is $5. Since Rain is a bar in its real life, it also is able to offer Bloody Marys, mimosas, red beers, etc.  For more information, call 316-261-9000.

Sometime before the end of the year, B&C Barbecue at 355 N. Washington will begin offering a breakfast buffet. Owner Carey Maurer says he’s close to getting it launched but isn’t sure when exactly it’ll all happen. When it does, he’ll have a buffet filled with eggs, bacon, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, sausage and more. It’ll cost around $7 a person, no tip required, and will be offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. I’ll update you when he gets things cooking.
