The chef and owner of the Schellville Grill, Matthew Nagan, is back cooking and serving breakfast, lunch and some dinners at full speed at his spiffed-up Schellville Grill.

For some, breakfast is a favorite meal to eat out, or even favorite meal, period.

And Sonoma has lost several breakfast places over the last couple of months, including the Fremont Diner, Pearl’s Diner, the Breakaway Café and, as it appeared for a while, the Schellville Grill.

Having stopped serving breakfast in anticipation of selling his restaurant and property, several customers suggested to Nagan that he re-fill that breakfast void until he finds a buyer.

Schellville Grill’s new breakfast menu is simplified to some basics such as bacon and eggs with herbed hash browns and toast ($14), vegetarian frittata ($14), a “Hub Cap pancake” ($5), French toast with egg and bacon ($12), pancake, eggs and bacon ($12), tri-tip beef brisket with eggs and toast ($20), and daily specials such as a vegetable flour waffle or even a Bananas Foster inch-thick French toast on panettone. Now open for breakfast and lunch daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday dinner from 5 to 8 p.m. 22900 Broadway, Schellville. 996-5151.
