You need a guide for your first visit: 1. Go early, if possible. They run out of some items daily. Breakfast is fabulous, but lunch sandwiches are also available at 11:00. 2. Parking spaces are in the back or in front along the street. 3. You will probably wait in line for your to-go order and/or a seat, if you... More

Being that it was the holidays and the fact that I would probably be overindulging in the following days, I wanted to order something light. My salad of choice was the red grapefruit/avocado salad. After I ordered, I noticed that all the other diners around us had ordered the sandwiches. My husband ordered the Turkey, Swiss, Apple, Bacon, Mayo sandwich,... More

We were there about 10 a.m. We told the serving staff at the counter that we had never been there and asked if they had a menu. None was ever offered. No one offered to seat us in the dining room so we assumed we ordered at the counter and carried it to a table ourselves. The place was quite... More

Whenever we're in Louisville we come here for brunch or lunch. The bakery breads and sweets are excellent as well.

Service is excellent, food is great. Only problem is that it's really noisy at its busy lunch time -- but the food is very good and the prices very reasonable. We return as often as we can.

Went here with a friend for breakfast last Saturday morning, and thought they were giving away $100 bills. WOW - didn't know so many people were up so early on a weekend. Having said that, the majority of people who were there carried out their purchases. We didn't know whether to stand in line or to give our names at... More

This restaurant is so popular, you have to pick your best times to visit. We always come after the breakfast rush and before the lunch rush. I always order their latte - it's spectacular with Illy beans. Yes, the dining area can be a bit noisy, so we try to sit outside when we can. Service depends on the kind... More

We had breakfast here on Friday morning. The tables are a bit close together and it was almost full with patrons, this made for a noisy atmosphere. The food is excellent, the pastries are mouth watering, and the prices are reasonable. Service was a little slow, but the wait was worth it.

With good memories of a previous lunch at the popular Blue Dog we went there again on our annual visit to Louisville from Toronto. The 20 minute wait time was actually only about 10 minutes before we were seated. But after that we waited, and waited. Finally I flagged down a waitress ambling by -- without a glance in our...
