Breakfasts are about to get bigger at the intersection of of 95th Street and Nall Avenue.
The Big Biscuit owner David Offerdahl says his company is moving toward completion of the chain’s fourth restaurant, to be located in south Prairie Village, and hopes to be open before Memorial Day.
“Initially, we’d hoped to be up and running by the first of this month, but we had some delays — which happens in this business,” he said.
The group has undertaken some relatively substantial work to remodel the interior of the space, which was a Le Peep restaurant until the first of the year. Offerdahl said they’ve moved three walls, built a breakfast counter and have replaced most of the equipment in the kitchen.
“It’s going to be a brighter space than was in there before, which we think will make it more welcoming,” he said.
Like The Big Biscuit, Le Peep offered just breakfast and lunch. It was only open at the location for a little over a year. But Offerdahl said he thinks his company’s fare — which focuses on large portions of straightforward breakfast and lunch classics — combined with a freshened-up space will help it gain a loyal following quickly.
“I drive around that area and I think, ‘Wow, this just feels like home,’” Offerdahl said. “You think, ‘Boy, it would be nice if there was a place for mom and pop to just sit down and have a cup of black coffee.’ That’s what we are. And there’s nothing like this for a couple of miles in any direction.”
