Initially, the restaurant’s walk-up window will serve a limited menu on weekends from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m., Dudley said. 

Items will likely include Butter’s famed potatoes as well as eggs, breakfast sandwiches and pancakes.

“It will be a scaled-down menu,” she said. 

The restaurant employees about 20 people. Dudley said schedules will be reorganized to fill the weekend breakfast needs.  

“I feel like it will be a lot busier when school is in (session),” she said.
