WAUKESHA - Lunch is now served at Daylee Public House starting Thursday.

Daylee Public House and Simply Irresistible Catering owner Megan Day had wanted to begin serving a lunch menu for months, but a lack of quality and qualified staff prevented her from doing that. Up until Thursday, the Daylee Public House had only served bar snacks and drinks.

Now, there will be a small lunch menu available daily, which will include a “Daylee Sandwich and a Daylee Soup.” A seasonal salad and build-your-own grilled cheese, a tomato bisque will also be available daily. Some examples include Friday’s Daylee Sandwich of a Cajun Seafood Roll, which is a play on a lobster roll, Day said, as well as shrimp gumbo.

Each morning at 8 a.m. that day’s lunch specials will be posted on Facebook,

“I am always looking to continue to grow,” Day said, adding she’s looking forward to the warmer months when they can take advantage of their large deck in front of the business at 453 W. Main St.

But she felt the time to roll out the lunch menu was now with the good team they have.

Once summer arrives, Day said the restaurant will get the ingredients it needs for salads at the Waukesha Farmers Market.

“We will work with some of the beautiful vendors we have in Waukesha for a daily salad,” Day said.

Lunch will be served daily until 5 p.m. and bar snacks will be served all day.

The Daylee Public House is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and closed Sunday and Monday.
