Another great visit to Lexington topped off by dinner at Alfalfa! Daughter had lemongrass curried chicken special; wife had Greek Salad; I had the turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich with tomato basil soup. The food and service were divine.

Wonderfully eclectic spot in downtown Lexington. All sorts of dishes from burgers to breakfasts. The cinnamon coffee is a signature cup. Friendly servers are top-notch. Jess is a star!

Great place to sit and talk. The menu combines old favorites, like Vegetarian Hoppin' John and updated items, marked Gluten Free, Vegatarian, etc. Moderate pricing, attentive service, quiet for lunch.
