This place is great. It was recommended to us by very nice guy at the information center near the Riverfront. We decided to check out the menu for lunch to come back to later in the day. The fresh made bread looked so good I had to buy a loaf before it sold out. My friends and I came back... More

I travel to Paducah regularly and never miss an opportunity to have lunch at Kirchoffs. It is simply an a dinning experience you must have when you travel here. New York dellies are somewhat of a passion of mine and I have experienced them in a number of cities across this country. Kirchoffs does not take a back seat to... More

When I was growing up in Paducah in the mid 1900s I ate a lot of sandwich loaf bread from Kirchoff's Bakery. Now I enjoy tasty mufalattas, red beans and rice, jambalaya and other great sandwiches and dishes within original walls and the wood flooring. The folks who serve have fun with each other and with customers. If weather is... More

Kirchoffs is a regular for me. My husband and I usually come for lunch 1-2 times a month. Between the two of us, we have tried about everything on the menu. We have never been disappointed. The food is fresh, hot, and yummy. The offer sandwiches, soups, and salads. All of the bread is handmade there and it makes the... More

Not only is the food really good and plentiful but the atmosphere is just so great! This is were you go to lunch downtown and soak up a bit of Paducah's history. This bakery has been in the same family for generations. It is a Paducah institution! The lunch menu excels in deliciously messy sandwiches, rich and tasty soups and... More

The food was great as usual. I love their bread! The cookies were chewy and delicious. This is a great place to meet family or friends for lunch. The atmosphere is always warm and inviting. Everyone is nice and helpful when I dine there.

Food very good and, judging by the crowd, other people feel the same. Beer and Cheese soup was excellent, as was the sandwich.

Great food and great service even when they are busy! Be sure to visit the bakery side next door for a cookie afterward!

Kirchoff'is one of the neat places for lunch in downtown Paducah. Food is one of the foremost attractions to this establishment. The casual atmosphere adds to the experience . Kirchhoff was once one of the major bakeries in western Kentucky. I think the wonderful aromas of bread baking is sealed in the walls!
