Simply Breakfast opens in Westport
It’s the classic tale of boy meets girl meets breakfast.
Jermaine and Kellyn Hunt have shared a love of the morning meal since they met at the University of Arkansas. And after having family shuttle in and out for their Kansas City wedding in July 2009, they realized one thing was missing from their new life in the city of fountains.
“To put it lightly, we’re big lovers of breakfast. And since we couldn’t find a place that offers quick, casual breakfast, we decided to try it out for ourselves,” says Kellyn.
A honeymoon during hurricane season in Cancun gave them plenty of time to plan and when they got back, they immediately thought of Westport as a location for their restaurant: Simply Breakfast.
“We fell in love with Westport because of its culture and the morale about supporting and buying local,” says Hunt.
The breakfast spot opened at midnight on New Year’s Eve, and will be open from Tuesday to Friday (6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and
Saturday and Sunday (6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. until the temperature rises
1 a.m. to 1 p.m.) to appeal to
morning commuters and night owls.
“Breakfast is a really satisfying meal whether it’s after a night out or the next morning,” says Kellyn Hunt.
