Right around the corner, this brand new and simple place is absolutely beautiful. All seating is outside, though, so if it’s raining or too cold, don’t bother.

Our favorite bakery in town, Sunrise mostly sells to local restaurants. But Thursday - Saturday from around 8am - 2pm, they open to individuals -- pick up a great baguette, a cup of joe, or a pastry!

A Lexington institution, this restaurant / diner is small and informal but always great. Sandwiches are their forte during lunch, but you also can’t miss the tomato and artichoke bisque. Great Brunch!

The best Mexican restaurant in town. We used to go there almost every Monday night (Sun - Tues is 2 for 1 margarita night!), and it never disappoints. Local tip: ask for the extra salsas (free!)
