The restaurant was open for breakfast late one morning. We had the pancakes which were delicious. The service is bohemian and friendly. Portions are plentiful. This should be on your agenda of great restaurants in Lexington.

First, I love Alfalfa. Perhaps this was just a bad weekend? They were out of potato bread and told us the baker didn't come in. (Really?? Is that what you want to tell me??) And then my poached eggs were hard-boiled. I'm used to GREAT food from Alfalfa. This won't stop me from coming back, but I do hope that... More

First visited two years ago and had a great time trying out the very tasty food. Second visit was just as good. It's not necessarily a place for those in a hurry. Alfalfa is also good for people watching - interesting clientele and staff.

This is a great local place. They have been around for years & care about serving local food. Hoppin' John is delicious & the lemonade is very tasty. My husband isn't crazy about the "Hippie Vibe" that the place has....waiters, etc. But that doesn't bother me. Parking can be difficult. May have to find a meter & walk a block... More

I rate Alfalfas as average because I was expecting a little more. The service, atmosphere, cleanliness and offerings were all good, but still, I was expecting more. The food,( I had the breakfast burritos with onions peppers and mushrooms and the alfafries) was good, and there was plenty of it, but it was just a little bland. The potatoes were... More

Have been twice now. The first visit had the blueberry buckwheat pancakes and they were very good. The second time took the family. The order of country ham biscuits were good, the cinnamon french toast were excellent, and the eggs benedict were fair at best due to the toast on bottom. We wanted to order a dessert to go but...

I love to go here for lunch. Their sandwiches are amazing! Get the salad with house dressing as a side, and choose from one of their many organic and healthy entrees.

I used to go here with guests from out of town because they had the best breakfast in Lexie. But the last few times I've gone, the food has been disappointing. Wouldn't risk it if I were passing through.

A group of us looked for a casual dining option that included vegetarian options. We.were very pleased with the variety of meat and meatless options - all prepared very well. Besides the great food, the server was able to handle our large group (10) extremely well - all while being welcoming and personable.
