West Wichita diners will soon have a new breakfast option.

Rebecca and Jim Darter are opening Shake N Egg, a restaurant that will focus on breakfast and brunch – and also serve protein shakes – at 9428 W. Central. Opening day will be Oct. 10.

The restaurant will serve items like stuffed French toast, chicken fried steak, steak and egg sandwiches, maple bacon shakes and various sweet frappes. Its already active Facebook page is offering a two-for-two deal: People who buy two breakfast meals once the restaurant opens can get two of equal or lesser value for free.

In May, the Darters opened Hot Diggity Dog Gourmet Hot Dogs in the space but have since closed it. Serving breakfast was Rebecca Darter’s original idea, she said, but her husband, Jim, wanted to try the hot dog restaurant. A string of poor managers took that concept down, she said.

The hours will be 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Shake N Egg will also be open on Sundays but the Darters are still trying to settle on Sunday hours.

Rebecca Darter also owns Rebekah’s Treasures, a clothing and accessories boutique at 4322 W. Central.
