Tim got a coupon for The Dixie Cafe when he played in a golf scramble a few weeks ago. It's located in Keene which is part of Jessamine County and not too far from Wilmore. So we decided to give it a whirl.
Keene is even smaller than Wilmore and off the beaten path, but it wasn't hard to find the cafe. First impressions were good. Clean and attractive on the outside, but what about the inside?
We walked inside and were greeted right away by the three people running the cafe. The place also has a small grocery store and gift shop, but we were there to eat. The day's special was pancakes, and they looked amazing.
I ordered scrambled eggs, sausage, and fried potatoes. The food was delicious and filling, the staff was friendly, and the cafe was one of the cleanest restaurants I've been to.
We opted to eat inside due to the humid Kentucky weather. We met two men and struck up a conversation with them. The older of the two men used what I thought was a cane at first. As the drew closer to us, I noticed it was a golf club he turned into a cane. His nine iron with a cane tip on the end. Very creative, and it served him well.
If you take a drive through the Bluegrass and have a chance stop bye The Dixie Cafe. It's a beautiful drive through horse country and will be worth the effort to get there.
