Eat All Breakfast All Day at Market Street’s Newest Hub for Eggs and Mimosas

Wooden Spoon is open for business

Brunch at Wooden Spoon

Wooden Spoon, a breakfast and lunch restaurant from the brothers behind Woodhouse Fish Co. and West of Pecos, is now open and serving breakfast, brunch, and lunch on Market Street.

Brothers Dylan and Rowan MacNiven, and partner/chef August Shuchman are behind the new restaurant, as well as the operations at downstairs Cafe du Nord. Now, after a brief remodel to lighten up the space, they’ve transformed what was formerly Spanish restaurant Aatxe into a sunny daytime destination, as a foil to Cafe du Nord’s dark, nighttime offerings.

The menu runs from lighter options like pastries and granola to full-on hash and eggs benedict for breakfast. At lunch, sandwiches and salads join the mix. At all times, cocktails are available, since Wooden Spoon shares a liquor license with Cafe du Nord. Bloody marys, spritzs, and all the daytime drinking classics will be on offer, plus Sightglass coffee for those with “things to do” that aren’t imbibing in sunlight.

In a nod to the Swedish American Hall, which houses both restaurants, Swedish pancakes with huckleberries, and open-faced sandwiches with toppings like gravlax and creme fraiche are also featured.

At opening, Wooden Spoon will serve breakfast and lunch on Wednesday-Sunday from 8 a.m.- 3 p.m.; MacNiven expects to open seven days a week within a few weeks.
