Dunlevy Snackbar (UPDATED)

UPDATE (07/23/13): After receiving the aforementioned liquor licence, the owner has decided to focus on bevvies and snacks for evening service only. No more brunch.
Dunlevy Snackbar epitomizes the latest entrepreneurial movement towards everything handmade. It has the feel of an artists studio – a commercial space in an under-utilized area, filled with particle-board counters, assorted vintage dishware, hand-stamped paper art, and repurposed light fixtures. From what I understand, this 22-seater started with the owner building the space and running the show himself, yet continues to evolve over time (just got their liquor licence this month). Our server seemed so delighted that she could offer us Caesars or Mimosas.

Their 4-item breakfast menu changes randomly, I assume according to whimsey and/or supplies, and usually there is a special available. We had the Baked Eggs and the Euro Breakfast. Love the idea of the Euro breakfast, curious that it’s not offered at more places. The experience was low key, like a buddy was making us breakfast over at his place.

433 Dunlevy Avenue
Breakfast hours (according to menu):
Saturday/Sunday: 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
