Today my sister took me to try a new restaurant – The Mammoth Railway Cafe in Park City.  It’s part of a bed and breakfast – the Grand Victorian Inn.  I have never written a review of a restaurant before, or food, but as I know the owner of the cafe (He was one of my older brother’s best friends in high school and therefore treated me as an annoying little sister), I thought I should share its amazingness with the world!

The building itself is beautiful. It was built in the late 1800s and has been everything from an inn to a stagecoach to a house/residence to a boys school to a old folks home. It has a great history, and one I would like to learn more about. It had fallen into disrepair when it was bought and restored.  My friend owns the restaurant half, and then there…

Berea: Historic Boone Tavern Restaurant

A great review on eating at Boone Tavern in Berea, Kentucky where the food is fantastic and affordable and the service is great. Always an enjoyable experience.

Kentucky Day Trips

Since it was still pretty early in the morning, we decided to go to the Historic Boone Tavern Restaurant for coffee and breakfast.  Good choice!

boone's tavern restaurant table setingI’d heard of Boone Tavern Hotel & Restaurant and had admired the beautiful 1909 building whenever I’ve been down to Berea, but had never stopped in.  It was built by Berea College as a guesthouse after the wife of the president of the college had entertained 300 guests of the college in just one summer.  Can’t say I blame her for saying “enough”!  Well played, Mrs…

A Meal With the Horses

Featured Image -- 215

Fashioned after an old country store, Windy Corner Market and Restaurant north of Lexington is right in the middle of some of America’s legendary horse farms. The restaurant uses Kentucky ingredients in their recipes and offers Kentucky foodstuffs for sale.

Eating a meal with horses may not sound very appetizing, but let me explain. Windy Corner Market is a one-of-a-kind restaurant that is surrounded by horse farms on each side. Going there to eat almost feels like your own personal escape from the hectic life (for me, college life) you lead on a daily basis. I guess if you are not a huge horse fan, you may not find the surroundings to be so oasis-like, but you get the point.

Windy Corner Market is a restaurant I am thrilled to have stumbled upon during my search for brunch spots in/near Lexington. Although my friends and I did not make it there in time for brunch, the brunch menu sounds nothing less of amazing. I will definitely be back to try it out.
