Oh, and my favorite is further proof that hours in this town, especially for food, seem unencumbered with society's expectations. See also Red Sushi
On Friday I called Memorial's general number, (608) 265-3000, to check summer weekend breakfast hours. Staff told me that the Rathskeller opens at 7 a.m. on Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday. This seemed odd, since the building's summer 2013 schedule (PDF) states that it doesn't even open until an hour later on both days.
I was then relayed to the Rathskeller, where a worker told me instead that the kitchen opens at 7 a.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. on Sunday; another oddity.
The online schedule says the Rathskeller opens at 8 a.m. on Saturday, and that on Sunday there is no breakfast at all; that it opens at 11 a.m. (The printed schedule posted outside the building agrees.)
On the other hand, the posted schedules state that Lakefront is open for breakfast at 8 a.m. on Sunday. A phone call on Saturday confirmed it. I hurried down the next morning.
It was closed. It didn't open until 11 a.m., for lunch. "I'll have to do some digging to find out why the discrepancy," promises Korz.
