We stopped in while checking out shops in Jefferson. Service was decent. Sandwiches were good but small. Broccoli salad was very good, my wife loved it. Good selection of pies. Both the chocolate pecan and coconut buttermilk were very good. Lunch for 2 ran us over $30 with tip.

Excellent sandwiches made with several choices of cornbread instead of sliced bread. You won't be disappointed !

Typical tourist town. Kitt's is a small sandwich shop making sandwiches with cornbread as buns. Served with a bag of chips. Was disappointed with the sandwich quality and size for the price. On the other hand the pie was VERY good but again pricy. OK for a one time - try something type of place.

I'm glad you came by to try our sandwich and pie. : ) I literally used a slice of bread to come up with the size so it would be the size of a typical sandwich or hamburger. You may have been expecting more of a deli sandwich with lots of meat. It would surely fall apart if we did... More

I had seen this restaurant promoted on the Jefferson city website, and since I love cornbread, and the idea of cornbread sandwiches, I put it on my to-do list while in Jefferson. I was there for the quilt show, and every restaurant in the historic part of town was overflowing with quilt show visitors, so I waited patiently for nearly... More

Unfortunately we walked out of this place and later found out we weren't the only ones. The service was terrible- slow, rude, and unattentive to customers needs.

I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. It really is not the norm. I will be asking my waitress about this and see if she remembers this incident. We welcome your feedback so we can correct a problem as soon as possible. She is really a sweet girl and I can't imagine her being intentionally rude. It's not her... More

We had lunch one day at the recommendation of a store clerk. It's just what the name indicates, sandwiches using a dense cornbread instead of bread. The flavor was really good and paired with the chicken & dumplings made a scrumptious and very filling lunch. Worth checking out.

The strawberry walnut salad with poppy seed dressing is ... amazing. You can buy the dressing to take home :-)

The soup and sandwiches were excellent. They also have good looking pies but we were too full to have any. They are not open for dinner. Wish we could get the cornbread recipe. It was sooooo good! Unfortunately the bathroom was not as clean as it could have been and the toilet did not flush. The service could have been... More

This is a sandwich like no other! Most cornbread crumbles and falls apart, right? Not this! These sandwiches are served on jalapeno, cheese, or regular cornbread and there's a variety of different sandwiches to choose from - they even have a hamburger served on their cornbread! The soups are great and let's not forget dessert! They have several to choose... More
