Came with my vegan daughter and her husband and we each tried different dishes. I ordered the Hoppin' John which came in a generous portion. Good overall except for the tomato chunks, the flavor of which I didn't care for. Something in the way they...More

AWESOME vegan options for breakfast! We had the tofu scramble, alfalfa fries, red beans & rice and fresh fruit. One was better than the rest! Certainly a favorite for our next visit to Lexington!

Alfalfa's has been around since the 70's, now that's a long time. You don't stick around that long without being good. It's not a typical menu, but there is something for vegans, vegetarians and meat lovers. The food is fresh and unique.

Stopped in with friends who were in town and the wife prefers to eat vegan. The options were fantastic, everything was fresh and their affinity to stay local for goods is wonderful. I will return again and again just for that hummus plate!

I had graham cracker chocolate chip pancakes - the special of the day. Wow! And the bacon is great (a biggie for me). New owners have added some nice touches. We will be back often.

Another great visit to Lexington topped off by dinner at Alfalfa! Daughter had lemongrass curried chicken special; wife had Greek Salad; I had the turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich with tomato basil soup. The food and service were divine.
