Interesting Kentucky style breakfast

Well you do just have to try the local food at least once in each location! We were recommended that this place would fit the bill by the barista at the coffee shop - and it certainly did. I opted for the aptly named Triple Threat (see picture) whilst my wife dared to try the Biscuits & Gravy. Now... read more

Local charming small bakery and light meals. Nothing fancy here but the BEST pastry around. Self service and relaxed. Great place to have coffee and a pastry and read the paper.

Whether you like, bagels, donuts, pies, or pastries, this is the place to visit in Lexington. Best known for transparent pie (also known as chess pie), the staff here also whip up delicious overstuffed sandwiches, breakfast plates, and a variety of drinks. Hours after noon are a bit unusual, so check before going to be sure it's open. We arrived... More

Great baked goods, good sandwiches at lunch and friendly staff. I often stop by on my way to work to pick up treats for my staff.

We stopped in for a late lunch and still found fresh selections and friendly service. Magee's is a longtime Lexington bakery institution that continues to amaze.

Delicious hometown bakery! Get there early enough in the morning to get a cinnamon roll. I have tried many treats from here they have all been great! It has a nice hometown kinda feel.

I've had their croissants before so this time I thought I'd try the biscuits and gravy and a side of hashbrowns. It was going to take a few minutes for breakfast to arrive so I got a cherry/cheese Danish, which was the size a medium plate. I took half home. The breakfast arrived and I couldn't believe how much there... More

Magee's is a great breakfast spot with wonderful breads, donuts and sandwiches. Their croissants, though, are the best thing they have. I recently had a bacon and cheese breakfast sandwich with one of their buttery croissants and loved every decadent bite. I cannot wait to return!
