“Once we got in here and saw how operational it was... the idea (shifted) to open up as a restaurant first,” Clay said.
The Ugly Duckling is now open 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The restaurant offers pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage patties, vegan sausage, tater tots and grilled cheese within nine different menu items.
The World Famous Breakfast, which is the most popular item, features two of Uncle Boof’s World Famous Pancakes, two eggs, choice of meat and tater tots. Other unique menu items include the Bill’s Breakfast Sammy featuring a Bill’s Donut bun, Cheesy Bacon Tots, Tater Hash and a Breakfast Burrito.
The Ugly Duckling has been in a soft opening phase since September.
