Breakfast

We appreciate you supporting our local endeavor. We’re not developers from the east, a chain from the west or a franchise from the south. Rather, we’re just a neighborhood family operating a neighborhood restaurant—about as Mom and Pop as it gets.

The menu at Half Day reflects the seasonal – and sometimes daily – availability of fresh and local ingredients. Our coffee is roasted in Blue Ash, our bread is baked on Red Bank Road, and the fresh flowers on your table come from the florist two blocks away. When it’s available, we make the effort to buy produce on Tuesdays from the Wyoming Farmer’s Market right up the street.

We trust you’ll recognize our efforts to provide you with something special. Fresh, interesting food served by warm, friendly people in a bright, clean atmosphere is what we strive for.

So, we’ll do our best to serve you delicious food and a good cup of coffee in a pleasant setting with the sincere hope that you’ll choose this place often to gather with your friends, your families and your neighbors.

Again, welcome - we're glad you're here
