We heard about this restaurant from everyone we asked when staying in an adjacent town. I had been to Stanford many times in the past but not recently. It was a sleepy little farm Town like most in the region. Not now. Downtown is revitalized...More

I ate here for breakfast awhile ago, but forgot to review. I had the breakfast platter of eggs, sausage, and toast. The sausage, though tasty, was overcooked to the point of dryness. The eggs, on the other hand were order sunny side up, and they...More

Fabulous Gem tucked away in the quaint town of Stanford, KY. Never expected such delicious food! Although they were out of the pie of the day, peach cobbler & cookie ice cream. We were probably better off not eating dessert!
