After 40 years, Geaghan's Pub & Craft Brewery will end its breakfast service effective Oct. 1, the restaurant announced on Monday.

The restaurant's owner said the decision was made in response to a change in the time people have to eat their morning meal.

"Serving breakfast is something that we have done since the very beginning," said Larry Geaghan. "We have always striven to provide a homemade experience, with my brothers Peter, Pat and I rotating coming in at 3 a.m. every morning to prep for the day and make fresh breads and breakfast pastries. Unfortunately, the breakfast culture has changed; people want fast food on the go, and we are not getting any younger."

Starting Thursday, Oct. 1, Geaghan’s Pub & Craft Brewery will be open at 11 a.m. for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
