There will be more options for dining in downtown Macon on Sundays starting Feb. 7.
Jeneane’s Cafe, 524 Mulberry St., will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Owner Debra Jeneane Barber said those hours could increase based on how much business she does.
Barber said she’s extending her hours largely because business is not what it used to be.
“It’s tight for everybody,” she said, adding January is particularly tight in the restaurant business because that’s when “everybody goes on diets.”
Barber said she told her staff about the new hours and it didn’t go over too well.
“I hate giving up my Sundays,” she said, but “we can make some extra money,” she told her crew.
“We can expose ourself with the church crowd who don’t come downtown during the week,” Barber said.
Jeneane’s Cafe is open Mondays through Fridays, 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The company’s second restaurant, Jeneane’s at Pinebrook, 4436 Forsyth Road, is open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Barber said the Pinebrook location does a really brisk business on Sundays.
“I probably should’ve already done this,” she said about opening Sundays downtown.
