Dionna and Justine are great people that just happen to help make your day better by serving you breakfast at J Grahams. Order the Hot Brown for breakfast ask them to throw a couple eggs prepared to your liking on the top!

We ate breakfast everyday in Grahams Café, staff superior and food delicious. Be certain to try the "Hot Brown" made at the Brown Hotel first and it is to die for.

I had lunch here with my family while visiting Louisville. Our server was absolutely amazing. I had the Hot Brown Sandwich and it was delicious!!! Some of us also had the breakfast buffet and they thought it had a great variety of options and was also very tasty. Would definitely recommend to others.

Decided to take some out of town relatives to experience a Kentucky original for Brunch. We loved the brunch buffet with all the trimmings. It was all very good and there was plenty of choices for everyone to pick. The only drawback was that it is a little pricey for a brunch, so you are paying for the location. They... More

My husband and I provided our early morning wedding guests with a beautiful buffet breakfast that J Grahm Cafe tailored to our needs for a group of 30. At our request, the Hot Brown Casserole was included on the buffet, offering many of our guests the opportunity to try it for the first time. Not only was the food delicious... More

Before our trip I'd been reading up on traditional dishes and saw the 'hot brown' mentioned, and that this was the hotel that created it. Both restaurants in the hotel serve it - it's actually cheaper at this one than the other (slightly posher) restaurant and I figured they had the same kitchen so would book lunch for here! I...

5 stars place, we went for brunch before a game at the Yum center and we loved it. Kids enjoyed the omelet station and French toast, nice selection of cheeses and cold cuts. My wife loves smoked salmon so the chef at the omelet station prepared one to her. The hot brown casserole, their signature dish, is a good approach... More
