Now open: Josephine’s Pantry

Josephine’s Pantry, a new restaurant that’s an ode to the owner’s late grandmother, opened a little more than a week ago at 818 N. Mosley.

Melvin Watson, who also owns My Dad’s BBQ at 1332 N. Cleveland, is serving breakfast and lunch from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sauturdays and Sundays. (New weekend breakfast spot alert! New weekend breakfast spot alert!)

He’s serving items such as cinnamon rolls and pancakes at breakfast, and catfish, burgers and salads at lunch. An attached bakery, complete with its own pastry chef, sells cookies, cakes and more.
