One of the Best Burgers in town

There are a lot of places in town that rate higher on the best burger in town voting. I have had most of them and still regard this as MY favorite burger in town for the following reasons: 1) The size of the burger is just right. It isn't a huge hunk of meat it is somewhere around 1/3 lb... read more

Great breakfast place, normal size portions, reasonable prices, good service and good made to order food. Upscale diner food. Convenient parking just behind the building is available.

This restaurant was recommended to us for their goetta. So we were there for breakfast. A quaint neighborhood restaurant. I felt like I was among family.

We were a very large group and had the whole upstairs on Mothers Day. The buffet had most of the normal items like scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes etc. The small chicken pot pies were very good plus lots of sweets and wonderful choc. Strawberries. Overall a good value and service.

Located two blocks from Newport on the Levee. This is a family owned business. They have an awesome breakfast lunch and dinner menu. They also have a stage where local musicians play.

Mokka's food is good. Their menu is eclectic with a nice variety for all tastes. I really enjoy the menu items that include goetta. They have a Goetta Grinder and a Goetta Grilled Cheese and others. I had the Goetta Grilled Cheese recently...mmmm mmmm good. One nit pick, my sandwich needed just one more slice of cheese. Great atmosphere and... More

I can't believe I'm just now getting around to reviewing this place. I have to have brunch here every time I am in KY visiting the family. The servers are always sweet and sometimes a little sassy (but nicely so). They've got good southern/midwestern breakfast options. I've had the breakfast pizza on many occasions, if you like goetta and sausage... More

My husband and I were there Saturday Nov.29, 2014 and love it. Food was great, reasonably priced. We had a great waitress named Kathy, who has us laughing. We will be back.

My husband and I went for a Sunday brunch. Place was PACKED, and we had to wait a while for a table, but the waitress was friendly and food was warm when it arrived. Tried goetta for the first time, and it was pretty tasty! I've had better biscuits, but the french toast was quite good. Just judging from the... More
