Now open: littleSpoon in Myers Park

The long-delayed Selwyn Avenue spot called littleSpoon opened Monday with what it calls a "locally driven" breakfast/brunch/lunch lineup.

Breakfast ranges from corn tortillas with egg white, kale, red quinoa and salsa to soft-boiled egg with toast sticks and flake salt to quinoa "porridge" with blueberries, pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon (prices about $5-$9.50).

For midday, look for heirloom tomato with anchovy-butter croutons, fennel and parsley; lamb pastrami on rye; shrimp and horseradish on a soft roll with lemon, celery and onion (prices about $8-$11).

Chef Miles Payne will make adjustments in the first month or so, said partner Alesha Sin Vinata.

2820 Selwyn Ave.; 704-496-9908; website's not up yet, but the Facebook page is (above photo's from the Twitter feed: @littlespoonCLT). Hours now are 7 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, 9 to 3 Sunday.

I'm sure the food is great, but went there yesterday and left after looking at the menu and talking to the server. The sandwiches looked great, but our server told us one would not fill us up and would need to get a side. The sandwiches are $11 and the sides are $5 I believe. She also told us that we could not add a protein to the salads, which were side salads that also would not fill us up. Again, I'm sure the food is great, but I didn't want to pay around $20 for lunch. Great little atmosphere inside and I hope they do well, but I'm just not sure how they'll be able to make it with those prices and small portions for just breakfast and lunch.
