The Continuing Cully Brunch Saga

Yesterday PDX Eater published an update related to the Beeswing situation—turns out the owner, Kevin Dorney, shut the location down and opened it up again at Cafe TBD, which I plan on checking out (love supporting food biz in Cully). All the Beeswing staff is there at TBD… except for Marissa Lorette and Ian Watson, the two chefs who launched the Kickstarter (and were part of the original Beeswing).

The opening of Cafe TBD is great news for the tiny world of Cully brunching, and I wish them only the best. But I can’t help but think there’s a whole load of stuff we just don’t know… the rest of the story could be pretty interesting. We (Kickstarter backers) did get an email from Marissa and Ian yesterday clarifying Cafe TBD is a totally separate business from Beeswing, which is helpful, and that they are working hard to find a new space.

I wish everyone involved only the best and look forward to putting all their delicious brunch food in my belly… like this “savory black sesame scallion waffle with sweet fermented chili glazed fried chicken, topped with a sunny egg.”
