Delicious breakfast! Hidden gem of Lexington. Not a huge menu, but there is something for everyone and they're able to work around allergies/dietary restrictions. Simple, fresh food. You must try!

This place is a wonderful Saturday morning breakfast spot, just off the Transy campus. I like going to sit outside on the patio and enjoy a fresh local breakfast before walking down to the Farmers Market. Highly recommend the beignets and bacon, also known as...More
