News just came in that the Eat Salem Restaurant of the Year, Word of Mouth Neighborhood Bistro(they also won the SJ Best Breakfast and Best Undiscovered[undiscovered only to SJ readers]) will be serving customers on Mondays. Word of Mouth will also be discontinuing their dinner service, allowing the owners, Becky and Steve Mucha, to focus on their breakfast and lunch menus. The change begins today. Here's a copy and paste from an email sent from the restaurant.
The good news is -- we're now open on Mondays!
The bad news is -- we're no longer open for dinner.
The good news is -- we can concentrate on stellar breakfasts and lunches!
The bad news is -- we found a recipe for Spam waffles.
The good news is-- we don't have room for a waffle maker!
The bad news.... ends here.
We're excited to be just a breakfast and lunch bistro. We have the best employees in town, but there is no comparison for the quality of food and service that you, our customers, get when we, the owners are here, on premise, building your omelet or pouring your coffee or wishing you a good day as you leave. That is part of what sets us apart from other places and we are very proud and even protective of that. The time and energy it takes to make our from-scratch items makes it impossible for us to work all three meals, so sadly...bye bye dinner. But the good news is--- we really didn't find a recipe for Spam waffles.
