Regional breakfast chain Big Bad Breakfast opened a second location in Derby City and it’s just as big and bad as the first one on Barrett Avenue.

The southern-style eatery specializes in scratch-made dishes created by James Beard award-winning chef, author, and owner John Currence — think biscuits and gravy, po boys, creole-style omelets + more.

The building of the second location was built in 1919 and was originally the Von Allmen Dairy Farmhouse.

The first Big Bad Breakfast opened in February in the iconic Lynn’s Paradise Cafe at 984 Barrett Ave. The second iteration is also located in a former restaurant legend, Corbett’s: An American Place at 5050 Norton Healthcare Blvd.

The same menu items will be available alongside a new specialty dish that pays homage to Corbett’s owner Dean Corbett called “Deano’s Scramble” — which is made with mushroom scrambled eggs, bourbon glazed onions, deep fried oysters, truffle aioli, sherry vinaigrette dressed arugula + goat cheese crumbles.

Both Big Bad Breakfast locations are open 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. daily.
