Hanna's on Lime is my new go to place for breakfast in Lexington. They open at 7am, I show up just after the door is unlocked. Freshly made coffee comes right away. The bread is homemade. The potatoes are freshly grated. Biscuits, eggs, sausage patties, it's all excellent, affordable and delivered with a smile. Highly recommended.

Stopped by for lunch at a Friends suggestion. Really small store front, wasn't real impressed however, We decided to go on in and try it. Tried the Veggie Plate. WoW! Point On. This was a huge surprise! Pretzel Salad was like a dessert. Greens unlike any others! Can't wait to go back again!

My coworker and I ordered the Transy sandwich for lunch and it was terrible. The Transy is a cheesesteak sandwich, but our cheesesteak was burned and very hard to chew and I would not recommend this sandwich to anyone.

I have no idea why it's been such a long time since I've had lunch here - I remedied that today and lunch was great! I got a veggie plate which was terrific, possibly the best corn pudding I've ever had and the 7 layer salad was equally yummy. I've never had it with cauliflower and tomatoes before but I'm... More

We waited 25 minutes for breakfast to go even though the place was empty. Biscuit was OK but ham was tough, dry and fatty, a near impossible feat. Not worth the money or the wait. A real disappointment.

There's something about going to a place that makes you feel like you're at home. I eat at Hanna's just about every week. The service is always friendly, the food great, and the desserts are the best kept secret. Elizabeth's banana pudding is the best dessert I ever had, hands down!

Got Hannah's on Lime for lunch. Those of you who read my reviews know I like trying places that I have never been. The way it works is that they have a different meat each day and your choice of sides. I got the baked chicken, which is moist and packed with flavor, the brocoli casserole and corn pudding. Loved...

We order lunch from Hannah's often at work. They have great food. Love the pimento cheese sandwich and seven layer salad. Great pies.

My family has been going here for about forty years or more (through several prior owners!) and still make it a point to have lunch here at least once a week. Service is super friendly, the owner is always in and out. The specials are great; my favorite is the pot roast but they only have it every two weeks.... More
