We live nearby and eat here at least once a week. Everything is homemade, just like diners up in the northeast. Great staff and atmosphere. Our favorite restart unit in Lexington and we eat put several times a week.

I am always on the look out for locally owned restaurants, and was glad we stopped here. They have a great play space, with lots of toys for the kids. And everyone's food was very good. Love the veggie omelet.

We went for breakfast. The food was great: biscuits from scratch, in-house cured ham and bacon, house-smoked turkey, etc. The pancakes were great, too. Prices were reasonable, including the kiddie menu. The decor is fun--retro lunch boxes and other items you haven't seen in a...More

The Lunch Box is a small local restaurant with big ideas. I ordered their three cheese grilled cheese because the description was over the top, and I was not disappointed. The macaroni salad was too mayonnaisey, but the sandwich was really enough! My sister got...More

I went to lunch with two friends. It was my first visit. I am a vegan and the chef catered to my dietary needs. I had the veggie sandwich. I loved it so much that I ordered one later in the day as a carry-out...More
