We were at the Lexington Convention Center for a conference, and happened upon this place while looking for lunch. The line was long, but the menu looked interesting and the prices looked reasonable, so we waited. Apparently the crowd was more than expected that day, because they were out of several items by the time we ordered, and closed the... More

My family and I stopped into Sweet Spot for ice cream after dinner downtown and had a nice experience. The ice cream servings were generous and the prices were very reasonable.

I eat here about once a week. Yesterday, I had the lunch special--a Cuban sandwich with black beans & rice and fried plantains on the side. Really tasty, always affordable. Their major lunch draw, every Thursday, are the pulled pork nachos. Smoked pulled pork on nachos with melted cheese, barbecue sauce, and jalapenos. The line is out the door every... More

I had a range of little dessert like cakes. Tiramisu was my favorite then thin mint, brownies were ok. Great for a little treat and $2 a cake I thought was very reasonable compared to some cupcake places and these little treats were delicious.

Not everything downtown needs to be pricey. The food here is fresh and reasonable. The owners are so friendly. You know this is a good spot as it is usually packed with Lexington locals.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch after hearing rave reviews about "Nacho Thursday". We both had the pulled pork nachos and a few truffles. The nachos were LOADED with cheese, pork, bbq sauce, jalapenos and bacon and were priced very well! So much food for so little! The truffles were exquisite. We will definitely be making this a...

Found this place highly recommended on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed! Many fun flavors and friendly staff. Took a short walk to see the fun wall of water at Triangle Park.

I stumbled upon this on my last day of my visit to Lexington and was so glad I did! I had this crab cake slider type of wonderful thing and it was magical. But the food takes a backseat to the customer service. I felt like I was the only soul in there (though the line was to the door)... More

The ice cream is bluebell. If you are familiar with it ( or not) you will love it. We had an opportunity to meet the owners during our visit wonderful people. They helped us celebrate our birthday. If you are downtown stop in. Wonderful experience!
