Nice unique and fresh items. Pancakes are a special treat and some menu items change with the season. No alcohol and they are not opened for dinner. Not happy that they are moving to Prospect. This St Matthews resident likes staying within the Watterson.

The food was good. The atmosphere was very nice. Loved that it used to be a home. The staff was friendly. Only complaint was that they toasted the tortillas which made them hard.

I love funky little spots like this. Friendly staff, eclectic decor, funky vibe. Food was fresh, delicious, and prepared quickly. Good coffee, and was refilled often and without delay (and offered me one to go!). Breakfast and lunch items available on the menu. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd be a regular. Highly recommended!

This cafe has a nice homey atmosphere and good food. I loved the egg tacos (get them with avocado, green onions & extra salsa)! My kids enjoyed the Nibble Plate, a selection of pita bread, sliced cheese, apples, and chicken breast. Simple, healthy, better than most kids' meals. Lots of choices for salads, sandwiches, and more. Reasonably priced. Be sure... More

Meridian has the best grilled cheese as well as soups and salads. Excellent service. They also have outdoor seating!

You'll love that you can order from the breakfast menu all day, but you might not like that starting next week, they will be closing @2PM M-F. I'm glad I saw the posting on their door today about that because I tend to eat lunch either super early or later in the afternoon. The food & service is GREAT! Always... More

Definitely go! I have been here three times now and I can't wait for my next trip back. The food is well thought out, flavorful, and carefully prepared. There are great vegetarian options on the menu too. The service has always been prompt and the prices are fair. You won't regret it.

My husband who loves all things spicy loved their hash. He had them add sausage to the mix. I had my usual boring two eggs and bacon but the panini style toast and the added potatoes and fruit were great. This is an old house turned cafe with an "A" rating. There is outdoor patio seating for nice days and... More

It's easy to forget Meridian: it's on a side street, it's only open for breakfast & lunch, and (of course) Louisville is full of amazing restaurants. We came here on New Year's Day, and I was thrilled that they serve breakfast all day. Portions are reasonable. Service is unobtrusive. The menu has enough to make most people happy. The atmosphere...
