A Berkeley neighborhood favorite for breakfast has new ownership, and with it, a new name. Kyle Janes sold Kyle's Kitchen, which she had run since 2004, to Lisa Sanchez and her son Corry. Sanchez also owns the Berkeley Inn just down the street, so the cozy diner is keeping its neighborhood cred. While the new name, Nug Nugs Diner, may not flow off the tongue, rest assured that's just about the only change. Sanchez notes that the menu is staying as is, with the only change being the addition of corned beef hash, previously a weekend-only special, to the everyday slate.
