Getting to Kirchhoffs can be a bit of challenge. With minimal parking out front, it might be better to park in a large lot just a half block to the north. They have excellent baked goods and artisan sandwiches made with fresh baked breads. So many wonderful things to eat, making a choice is the hard part. Next door is... More

Love the atmosphere at Kirchoff's. It has the feel of an old time deli/bakery. Their sandwiches are delicious and they have a large variety to choose from. My favorite is the Fried Green Tomato and Bacon. We always enjoy taking home some fresh, yummy, homemade cookies. I love the Snicker Doodle. The staff is also top notch. Never disappointed!

We enjoyed amazing deli sandwiches without a long wait. The Kirchhoff's Club was HUGE and delicious. The fried green tomato sandwich was very interesting as well but didn't seem to have as much flavor.

One of the finest bakeries I've been to in a very long time. And I spent six years in Germany. The prices are fantastic. Half of what we thought it would be.

We were in Paducah for half a day as one of the ports on our Ohio River cruise. While we were out riding our bikes around the town it came time for lunch so we pulled up trip advisor and found this local #1 rated spot. I had passed by the bakery earlier in the morning on a run so... More

The American Queen changed routes so Paducah wasn't expecting us but they still had a small selection. We eat so much through on the boat that a small selection was fine. They had one Asiago bagel left. That's my fave at Panera. I don't think it was as cheezy as Panera's but was still $1.50 for a huge bagel and... More

My family and I spent half a day walking the river front district, and figures from the other reviews that we needed to stop here for a treat. So glad we did. The danish my wife and I shared was excellent and the loaf of cranberry walnut bread we took home was delicious. The store, adjoined to Etcetera Coffee Shop,... More

We walked in right at closing time( had forgotten they close at 2). We were going to just buy bread and sweets from the bakery and be on our way but the nice men in the deli insisted they did not want us to go away hungry. Our sandwiches were huge and equally delicious! The sweets (millionaire bar ) were... More
