The Dunbar Room places a special emphasis on its communal and social aspects, which include a jazz brunch every Sunday. The breakfast menu is served daily, and has a large selection of coffee and espresso, along with plates of fried potatoes, hash, bagels and lox, eggs, and some other breakfast staples. This casual stop may be more for slow mornings to enjoy a breakfast experience, rather than a before work meal for those who need to leave within an hour.
