A space-themed diner took one small step for mankind Wednesday in Boston, launching at 7:30 a.m. Little Dipper (669 Centre St., Jamaica Plain) officially opened after renovations in the former Centre Street Cafe space, though it remains under the same ownership. Co-owner David Doyle, along with partner Mari Perez-Alers, chef Robin McGrath, and her wife Leila Asher, kicked off business with pastries, poached eggs, and more.
Centre Street Cafe closed down on June 17 to allow for renovations and the revamping of the space into Little Dipper. Now, the restaurant has rockets hanging from the ceiling and retro decorations suitable to the theme.
Menu items include a baked potato with bacon, poached eggs, and Welsh rarebit cheese sauce; acai bowls; and assorted pastries like muffins and doughnuts.
To start, Little Dipper is serving breakfast and lunch on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., plus weekend brunch from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The restaurant will add dinner service soon.
