Stopped after visiting the Ark Encounter for an ice cream snack. I had the best coconut almond ice cream I have ever had! Also we decided to have a cream filled donut which was amazingly fresh and yummy. Definitely worth the stop.

Stop here for a refreshing change of pace from the fast food. Donuts and pastries made daily, and oh so yummy . For lunch or dinner have a made to order sandwich on the homemade bread. The soup of the day it's delicious. They even serve The legendary Kentucky drink called Ale 8. 😊

We ate here for lunch and the food was amazing. It was very fresh and delicious. The staff was kind, and the decor was modern and clean inn the dining room. The mens restroom definitely needed cleaning.. a bit grimy.. overall i would definitely go back.

Well, this restaurant had come highly recommended at the hotel where we stayed. It was OK, but my wife's turkey and cheese sandwich was supposed to be warm, yet the cheese was not melted. My potato and bacon soup, on the other hand, was very tasty. The establishment was clean, and the atmosphere was good, though we were carry-out customers.... More

Hi, thank you for coming by. I'm very sorry to hear about the turkey and cheese sandwich. You're right that all of our paninis are to be served hot, including the cheese in them. It sounds like we may not have kept it pressed in the panini grill long enough. I apologize for our mistake. It is not the norm.... More
