We made a reservation for brunch at 10am, when they open, before we left town. There was actually a line when they opened the doors at 10am. Small place in a building from the 1800's. Our waiter said it use to be a printing office. Very interesting surroundings and different type of foods. Ours was very good. Lots of different... More

I had heard a lot about this place but never stopped in. It's located downtown and I'm hardly in the area. However there was a groupon so I decided to try it out. The decor rocks it's very country. My party was seated at a large round table with old chairs. Our menus were on burlap! I am not very... More

I was originally not thrilled that this was chosen as our dinner place on a recent work trip ("I don't want tea for dinner, guys"), but I was pleasantly surprised! The beef cheek dinner was probably one of my top 10 favorite meals of all time. The beef fell apart with a touch of my fork, and the charred broccoli... More

Food was very surprisingly good. Coffee was a great value. Daily iced tea hit the spot. I would recommend this place if you like a hipster feel.

Be open minded and try this place- we lived in Shanghai and LOVED their location (only 2 Shanghai and Louisville)....unfortunately the Shanghai location closed...so when we returned to our hometown of Louisville we tried that location. Food is good, take your time and enjoy the unique surroundings.

I had the rabbit and my husband had the smoked fish. Both were delicious. Good service was excellent. You have to try this restaurant.

Very much enjoyed our visit! Came for lunch and had the "tea plate" which was a little personal buffet of items from the menu. The décor is cool, mismatched furniture and mason jars. The food will please most people, with fresh local ingredients and Kentucky/southern food - think pulled pork, catfish, Benedictine. The iced teas were great. Only wish I'd... More

I stopped by this cute tea cafe during a weekend visit to Louisville, KY and I am so glad that I did. The decor alone makes me want to take some of my friends and mom the next time I visit. All of the staff from host, to waitstaff, to food runners were excellent. My wait person was Brittni P.... More
