Sunday diners chow down on omelettes, breakfast wraps and pancakes while listening to the music (from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.) of local musicians, including regulars Steve Perlswig and Vincent James. John Paciotti, founder and owner for 23 years, said that during a trip to New Orleans he enjoyed street musicians performing in outdoor cafes and decided to bring the idea to Morton.
