A cute corner cafe with outdoor seating. We enjoyed a delicious chicken salad sandwich. Order at the counter, but served to your table. Easy lunch while walking the downtown area.

Excellent menu choices and reasonable prices. The turkey club and clam chowder were great and the black bean salad made a nice light side.

This is a Lexington institution. The line is long at lunch time but worth the wait. We enjoyed the tuna melt and pimento cheese sandwiches at a comfortable outside picnic table. Don't miss the Blue Sky.

Walked in accidentally, when we were looking for another restaurant. This is walk-in, order, be seated. The lady at the front desk was extremely nice and did her best to accommodate a gluten free request. They did not have any gluten free sandwiches, but she...More

I didn't see any when we were there but I'm pretty sure I saw a dog water bowl. Lots of dogs around town so I am pretty sure it would be a yes.
