I had graham cracker chocolate chip pancakes - the special of the day. Wow! And the bacon is great (a biggie for me). New owners have added some nice touches. We will be back often.

Another great visit to Lexington topped off by dinner at Alfalfa! Daughter had lemongrass curried chicken special; wife had Greek Salad; I had the turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich with tomato basil soup. The food and service were divine.

Wonderfully eclectic spot in downtown Lexington. All sorts of dishes from burgers to breakfasts. The cinnamon coffee is a signature cup. Friendly servers are top-notch. Jess is a star!
