Brunchies opens diner in Boone Village

Brunchies, a breakfast and lunch joint in Carmel, is opening a second location at 47 Boone Village.

Zionsville residents and Brunchies owners Larry and Jenny Hoover are hoping to open on Monday, Jan. 2. The restaurant will open in the former Patrick’s Kitchen and Drinks restaurant, which is moving to Main Street.

The Hoovers opened Brunchies at 13732 N. Meridian St. more than five years ago.

Larry said they are looking forward to expanding the family-run business.

“We live in Zionsville and have always felt Zionsville needed a good breakfast restaurant,” Larry said.

Larry said he looked into opening another location a few years ago, when Sunday’s Cafe went out of business in Boone Village.

“Patrick Mullen just beat me to it,” he said.

The Hoover’s have investigated several other locations in Zionsville, including the former Burger King on Oak Street and a few locations on Main Street.

“Those other spaces didn’t fit our needs,” he said. “We like Boone Village (shopping center) because it has good visibility and is in a high-traffic area.”

When Larry found out Patrick’s Kitchen and Drinks was relocating, he spoke with the landlord and seized the opportunity.

“Probably the biggest thing I am looking forward to is taking a restaurant to my local community,” Larry said.

Larry said they will do some minor remodeling to the existing space. He said they also plan to use the same menu and hours as their Carmel location. According to their website, www.brunchiesdiner.com, the Hoovers offer a signature French toast “that crunches” and “legendary” cofee. Other     signature items include big skillet breakfasts, eggs Benedict, granola parfait, and sandwiches such as a turkey Reuben, breaded tenderloin and chicken panini. Hours will be 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
