If breakfast is your favorite meal of the day, you should soon have a new spot to add to your repertoire. Harbor Breakfast, the Little Italy morning eats joint we announced last summer is finally nearing completion after some delay.
The corner eatery has a new sign and a set of outdoor booths on the Beech Street sidewalk. Owner and architect Ted Smith, a neighborhood resident, is doing a hands-on renovation of the 1,100-square-foot space, which when complete, promises to have an old-fashioned diner feel and serve breakfast and lunch. Smith says Harbor Breakfast should be open by late April or early May, and operating hours will likely be from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Chef Eddie Hernandez is still attached to oversee the menu, which includes freshly-made breakfast pastries, steak and eggs, waffles and other down home dishes. Lunch will include corned beef and meatloaf sandwiches. Hernandez intends to source organic ingredients whenever possible; house made organic almond milk is among the breakfast beverages, along with mimosas made with fresh-squeezed juice and local beer. Also in the works, a vegetable garden on the roof of the 125-year-old building.
