Charming Midway, Kentucky






Midway, in the middle of Kentucky’s Bluegrass horse country, has a charming main street that is well-worth the visit. It was the first town in Kentucky established by a railroad, along an east-west railroad line in the 1830s. It has a number of stores, cafes and local businesses. With three, restaurants in town, chef Ouita Michel has helped put Midway on the map.

Holly Hill Inn: Located in Midway KY this historic inn turned restaurant and featuring locally sourced food, is the perfect spot for Sunday brunch. They feature a three course menu with several options. I loved the asparagus soup, the eggs benedict with country ham and a lemon hollandaise plus the best bourbon chocolate pecan pie.  

Just south of downtown is The Midway Bakery. Stop in for a snack or a coffee while you explore. They create cookies, pies, scones and more from scratch using locally sourced ingredients and traditional recipes. 510 S. Winter St.

A little further south, at 3854 Old Frankfort Pike, is the charming Wallace Station that is open for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It has both indoor and outdoor patio seating. Located in a former grocery store that was built in the early 1900s, it features breakfast items until 11:30 am, salads and soups, sandwiches, burgers plus Monday and Friday dinner specials. It features a large selection of pies, cookies and other desserts. The strawberry pie was well-worth the drive!
