Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day. But does it have to be consumed so early? For many families, morning schedules and commutes make it more convenient to indulge in veggie omelets, fluffy pancakes and crispy waffles later on in the day. In response to this desire, several restaurants at Whitestone REIT Properties have extended breakfast hours so diners can find breakfast offerings at a time that fits into their schedule.
“There is no right or wrong time for breakfast,” said Bo Reed, General Manager of The Henhouse Café in Gilbert Tuscany Village. “We find that our customers enjoy our breakfast dishes with family and friends regardless of the time of day. It’s a delightful way to spend time together.”
A national poll confirms Reed’s observation. Nine out of ten (90 percent) of Americans say they eat breakfast for dinner, with nearly a quarter eating breakfast for dinner once a week.* Here are a few Whitestone REIT locations that have made breakfast the star of their menu enabling diners across the valley to indulge past 10 a.m.:
