I work in a small restaurant/bar. We are trying to open for breakfast business and was supposed to have a breakfast menu, as well as serve breakfast by Jan. 1, 2021. This has been in the works since Oct. 2020. We were supposed to have the kitchen expanded before Jan. and it still is not done. We only have three cooks whom work against each other instead of as a team. Because of the pandemic, we don’t have much business either. On a good note, the food we serve for lunch and dinner is good and mostly homemade. The owner is really good to work for as well, and our prices are reasonable.
