  • Breakfast
There’s a lot to like about the Lynn on Bryant, a sweet little eatery with a classic yet casual French menu in the Lynnhurst neighborhood. Whether you're in the mood for breakfast, brunch, lunch, a casual dinner, or an elegant meal, the Lynn has you covered. All those options can get a bit confusing, though, because the Lynn has a first-come, first-served cafe in the front of the restaurant and more formal dining in a separate room at the back, each with different menus. Breakfast is served daily during the week and starts early (7 a.m.). Grab it and go from display cases or stay and enjoy great coffee, superb caramel rolls, and dishes like heavenly fruit-stuffed brioche French toast or potted steamed eggs Florentine. The cafe menu includes a gorgeously light and pungent goat cheese souffle, croque monsieur, and duck confit at brunch and dinner. The more elegant dining room serves homey French dinner dishes, such as grilled hanger steak, baby pumpkin with chestnut custard, and moist bone-in chicken breast. Desserts are delicious and almost shockingly cheap.
