We got to this place at the perfect time Sunday morning as it got packed when we were leaving. The service was good and food was amazing. I had baked sweet potato and it was so good. The yogurt chicken sandwich was amazing. Great choice!

No change to the menu. Pies are still great as well. As far as atmosphere I would visit the one down on Old Harrodsburgs Road. There are some nice trees to find shade in if you happen to take the short stroll to the banks... More
