WILLIAMSBURG — Downtown Williamsburg’s Culture Café will open its doors on July 19 at 8 a.m. with quite a few changes.
Owner Scott Hoyland said the changes will open up opportunities for both customers and the business.
“A place like Culture is a gathering point in the community,” said Hoyland. “We are just going with the trends we see by changing the meal period and presenting food that is fast, delicious and well-prepared. I think we can provide that niche for ‘fast service’ that is really good food here in Williamsburg.”
The restaurant will now serve breakfast and lunch, along with an all-day brunch menu. Customers can also enjoy fresh, homemade breads and pastries.
“Breakfast and brunch are just great meal periods. People have fun and are talking, maybe they have a cocktail, it’s a nice way to get your day started,” Hoyland continued, “It also allows me to share my new passion for making bread!”
Culture Bakery, which operates out of the café, will provide its artisan breads, croissants, meat pies and other pastries from the counter for pickup and quick serve.
“You’ll be able grab a coffee and a pastry to go or sit and enjoy them in our space,” Hoyland explains, “We are doing some rearranging inside the space and creating a comfy coffee shop feel on one side.”
Hoyland stated that Culture Café will also be available for private events and parties. The business is also exploring themed dinners and cooking demonstrations.
The new hours of operation, which Hoyland said will adjust if needed, will be 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
Excited for the changes, Hoyland stated, “Restaurateurs in this day and age have to morph with what our culture is bringing. As things change, we have a responsibility to our community to change as well. Let’s do what the people want.”
