(Editor’s note: If you haven’t read Part 1 of this two-part post, know that it’s about the explosion of great food and drink options in downtown Lexington. This second part touches on restaurants just a couple of blocks away, to some several miles away, that should be added to your “must visit” list.)
Doodles: This fast-casual breakfast and lunch operation is located about two blocks from downtown and less than a block from Transylvania University. If Lynn Winter hadn’t shuttered Lynn’s Paradise Café and considered doing a fast-casual version of that restaurant, this might be what it would have looked like.
Open just four days a week, the menu changes from Thursday toSunday. You can find everything from omelets to huevos rancheros to corned beef hash to a Kentucky hot Brown quesadilla, and that’s just for starters.
Prices are modest, you fetch your own food and coffee refills, seat yourself, and leave when you’re ready. It’s that casual.
