After going offline for about a month to retool its menu offerings, Lulabelle’s Sweet Shop reopens in Petworth on Tuesday, February 5, with a new lineup of grab-and-go sandwiches alongside its core candy selections.

Owner and longtime neighborhood resident Julie Wineinger drew from family recipes to build out the expanded menu for Lulabelle’s (847 Upshur Street NW), which will now open at 8 a.m. — three hours earlier than before — until 7 p.m.

For breakfast there’s a sausage or veggie Shipwreck Sandwich (an egg frittata between ciabatta bread and grilled on a waffle iron), and at lunch, sandwiches ($6-$8) include hot ham and brie or grilled cheese. A vegan option is coming later this month. Pastries and drip coffee are also now the mix. Here’s a look at the menu:

The back of the compact eight-seat shop will still sling ice cream scoops by Taharka Brothers and espresso drinks with locally roasted Lost Sock Coffee beans.

Wineinger, who also runs clothing shop Willow, says Lulabelle is the term of endearment her grandfather called her grandmother.
