Restaurant Review: KY Native Cafe

I met a friend {introverted socialite on IG} in Lexington, KY to talk books, life, and her upcoming wedding. After running around town we decided to head to my FAVORITE spot in Lexington, the Kentucky Native Cafe.  This little spot is nestled in the heart of downtown and is a true oasis. It is set behind a florist shop and has so many nooks and quiet places set in a forest scene where you can eat and enjoy every ounce of the delicious food they serve. Processed with VSCO with f2 presetIMG_2670.JPG

On this trip I opted for the blueberries with lemon cream and the croissant with jam. Oh my they were delicious. The pastry was so buttery and flaky and finished with the perfect amount of salt so that when you smeared on the jam it tasted like heaven. I have been to this cafe several times and their rotating selection never disappoints. The pretzel with beer cheese is phenomenal, the peanut noodle salad is absolutely perfect, all of their pastries and fruit options are the best in town. The atmosphere at KY native is one of a kind, but their tapas style food is the thing that keeps you coming back.

We also had cocktails. The elderflower prosecco was so crisp and delicious. The blood orange bellini was outstanding with its distinct blood orange flavor. We swapped our new favorite books. I brought The Little Book Of Hygge while she brought The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up which will be reviewed soon. If you are looking for a non-alcoholic option the draft lemonade is a real winner.

After eating we rambled about the grounds, greenhouses, and swooned over the plants. The greenhouses are working and living stores where you can get the most gorgeous plants to take home. Their orchids are absolutely stunning, as well as some of their other exotic plants. Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

  1. […] I have had success with plants purchased everywhere from wal-mart to a boutique greenhouse. It really is all in how you care from them and not buying plants that are doomed from the start. My absolute favorite place in Lexington happens to be Micheler’s Florist and Greenhouse which is where most of these photos were taken. Their selection is fantastic,and they have a cafe that is to die for (read review here). […]
