Not sure if you know but the menu at Magpies' is not very big and to spice it up a little I've been running some specials. However...the specials have not been doing too well and getting the specials prepped adds more work to an already busy day but...a little bit of a trend has been developing. Tuesday to Friday we have very few breakfast customers but get slammed at lunch and on Saturday and Sunday breakfast is the definite favorite.
So...the plan going forward is to run lunch specials during the week and breakfast specials on Saturday and Sunday.
Today's special was grilled ham, cheese and tomato on rye and tomorrow's special will be a patty melt and Friday I will run a shrimp sandwich. I have Saturday's special figured out..it will be a Mexi-Can omelet with chirizo, diced tomato, green onion and black beans..Sunday???
I'm also trying to figure out how to get folks in for breakfast during the week...ideas???
