Had the pleasure of spending five days in Lexington and enjoyed my morning breakfast stop at Magee's. The breakfast buiscuits are to die for. Fluffy scrambled eggs, thinly sliced country ham topped with cheese of your choice between outstanding "southern" style biscuits! The cinnamon rolls are top shelf as well. Highly recommend!

My family goes here 1-2 times a month. The donuts are awesome. The richest buttercream icing ever! The caramel and bacon donut is perfect. But the real gem is the fried chicken biscuit (with gravy)! Highly recommended local place.

Staff at the register this morning was quite unfriendly, unfortunately, on this beautiful morning. Cinnamon roll was very tasty. At $3.25, it was also quite pricey (not one of those double sized rolls....just regular size). Seeing fresh donuts being dipped in chocolate was a temptation. Though there was a bit of a line, wait was brief. Others were enjoying wide... More

Super friendly accommodating staff with a fantastic selection of bakery items and our breakfast choice was out this world. We live in Ohio and are delighted to have had the opportunity to visit here. Get to Magee's for an experience you will not regret. I WILL BE BACK !!

The chocolate iced doughnuts here are delicious. The only disappointment was that one of my children ordered the pancakes as well as an orange juice from the menu, only to be informed that they did not have either item.

Magee's was a bakery in Maysville, KY. They now have a site in Lexington that serves breakfast and lunch and still offering tempting bakery items. We were there for breakfast and it was worth the trip. You order at a counter with flat screen displays of the menu. I ordered an veggie omelet that filled half the plate. It can... More
