For the first time in its history, The Lion House Pantry is serving breakfast. Specialties include sourdough pancakes made from a starter that dates back to early pioneers and creme brulee French toast made from the popular Lion House dinner rolls.

Breakfast is available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Regular lunch and dinner service continues as usual from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

"The pancakes are the same recipe that my family has used," said Executive Chef David Bench, whose great-great-great-great grandmother, Martha Robinson Blackam, came across the plains with the Martin Handcart Co.

The Pantry also is offering a unique creme brulee French toast using its famous Lion House rolls baked with eggs and a gooey caramel sauce.

All breakfast items on the a la carte menu cost $1.59 each. Other menu items include sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, potatoes and oatmeal.
