Venice’s grab-n-go game is as strong as ever, with options like Gjelina Take Away and Gjusta making sure even folks on the move can stay fed. Now there’s Dudley Market, a beach-adjacent cafe space that combines restaurant and retail into one pretty little package.
The work of Conner Mitchell and chef Jesse Barber, Dudley Market leans heavily on the takeout segment, offering a fine collection of house made options from the well-known chef. There are also artisanal goods and ingredients on offer for anyone thinking of whipping something up at home, plus a full-bodied restaurant component that lets locals sit down to enjoy a bite.
The menu offers a causal blend of classics and more refined options, from eggs benedict in the morning to fried chicken sandwiches midday and a heftier pork loin or lamb belly main come nightfall. There will also beer and wine available on-site, though takeaway sales aren't possible just yet.
As for seating, Dudley Market offers spots for up 20 guests, with lots of bright light infiltrating through the front and an open kitchen at the other end. There’s a farmhouse table for communal seating, plus two- and four-tops set up with a fun mix of mismatched chairs. Bar seating seats six under gold pendant lights, while the room itself is wrapped in exposed brick and exposed wooden beams.
Dudley Market is currently soft-open, with plans to officially launch on Friday, August 7. Hours will run daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., before closing up in anticipation of dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Brunch kicks off immediately too, with weekend hours from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
