Dunbar's re-opening, new location
I'm a first year at Loyola Law School and we got an email on Thursday informing us that Dunbar's would be re-opening this Monday August 28th in the Broadway Activities Center on the Loyola Broadway campus...corner of Pine and Dominican (a block off St. Charles, a block off Broadway).
Wow--this is wonderful news! I will have to stroll on over and check it out, if Ernesto permits...
basically they took over a very small kitchen used for pretty terrible buffet service cafeteria food. so the variety they can prepare on a daily basis is limited.
Had both breakfast and lunch Monday.
plate of eggs, grits, sausage or bacon, toast or biscuit was $2
for lunch...fried chicken with a side of red beans.
Think they have a different lunch special everyday. And that's pretty much how it works. If there's a menu I can grab I'll copy it to this board.
I just saw the news. This makes my day! Tell me, is it open for both dinner and lunch? Do they do the fried chicken daily?
Also, I used to buy my cakes there. It was one of the greatest secrets. Dunbars used to bake an entire cake-huge by the way-for less then 25 dollars. I bought them all the time. They're better than the standard bakery cake but not extravagant. Just a good, moist Duncan Hines strawberry cake with cream cheese icing.
Can't wait to get back there.
sorry, meant to post earlier....
