I’m running into issues with Step 16 of Basta Fazoolin’. When I indent the return line on the available_menus function, it only returns the Brunch Menu, and when I unindent the return line to get it out of the for loop, it gives me the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 75, in
File “”, line 13, in available_menus
if time >= menu.start_time and time <= menu.end_time:
AttributeError: ‘dict’ object has no attribute ‘start_time’

I have the attribute ‘start_time’ defined in the class Menu, so I have no idea what the issue is. Can someone please help? Thank you!

class Franchise: def __init__(self, address, menus): self.address = address self.menus = menus def __repr__(self): return self.address def available_menus(self, time): self.time = time available_menus = [] for menu in self.menus: if time >= menu.start_time and time <= menu.end_time: available_menus.append(menu) return available_menus class Menu: def __init__(self, name, items, start_time, end_time): = name self.items = items self.start_time = start_time self.end_time = end_time def __repr__(self): return + ' menu available from ' + str(self.start_time) + ' - ' + str(self.end_time) def calculate_bill(self, purchased_items): bill = 0 for purchased_item in purchased_items: if purchased_item in self.items: bill += self.items[purchased_item] return bill #Brunch Menu brunch = { 'pancakes': 7.50, 'waffles': 9.00, 'burger':11.00, 'home fries': 4.50, 'coffee': 1.50, 'espresso': 3.00, 'tea': 1.00, 'mimosa': 10.50, 'orange juice': 3.50 } brunch_menu = Menu('Brunch', brunch, 1100, 1600) #print(brunch_menu.calculate_bill(['pancakes', 'home fries', 'coffee'])) #Early Bird Menu early_bird = { 'salumeria plate': 8.00, 'salad and breadsticks (serves 2, no refills)': 14.00, 'pizza with quattro formaggi': 9.00, 'duck ragu': 17.50, 'mushroom ravioli (vegan)': 13.50, 'coffee': 1.50, 'espresso': 3.00 } early_bird_menu = Menu('Early Bird', early_bird, 1500, 1800) #print(early_bird_menu.calculate_bill(['salumeria plate', 'mushroom ravioli (vegan)'])) #Dinner Menu #Early Bird Menu dinner = { 'crostini with eggplant caponata': 13.00, 'caesar salad': 16.00, 'pizza with quattro formaggi': 11.00, 'duck ragu': 19.50, 'mushroom ravioli (vegan)': 13.50, 'coffee': 2.00, 'espresso': 3.00, } dinner_menu = Menu('Dinner', dinner, 1700, 2300) #Kids Menu kids = { 'chicken nuggets': 6.50, 'fusilli with wild mushrooms': 12.00, 'apple juice': 3.00 } kids_menu = Menu('Kids', kids, 1100, 2100) menus = [brunch_menu, early_bird, dinner_menu, kids_menu] flagship_store = Franchise('1232 West End Road', menus) new_installment = Franchise('12 East Mulberry Street', menus) #print(flagship_store) print(flagship_store.available_menus(1200))

What happens if you comment out or remove:
self.time = time

(in that function logic for available_menus )

On line 68;
menus = […

One of these things is not like the others.

Hope that helps.
