We have been coming here for years! During the middle of lunch, the wait can be quite long so make sure you come in quickly and get your name on the list. The sandwiches are always fresh and yummy! Their desserts are delicious and their iced tea with a slice of orange is so refreshing. They recently did a much... More

Do not leave this place without trying the tomato artichoke soup. Seriously. This is an excellent place for lunch and everyone knows it..so be prepared to wait. Or get there before noon. If you get in a pinch and can't stay, not a problem, they have a cafe on the other side for takeout. The actual restaurant closes around 3pm... More

My sister took me, an out-of-state guest, to this very busy and popular restaurant. I am still thinking about the delicious chicken salad with pecans sandwich! Soooooo good! If it wasn't 2000 miles away, I'd come again!

Our first visit to The Cheddar Box Cafe. They have a deli/ takeout counter and a seating area. The Honey Pecan Chicken Salad was delicious. I'll return on my next trip to Louisville.

This is a very busy lunch spot! Go early so you can get a table as there is always a crowd. I love the chicken salad. They have a full menu with lot of choices. This is a lovely place to take friends.
