Bakery
“If you love Bourbon and want to experience something special, this spot just across the river in Newport, Kentucky, is where every local Bourbon lover goes to try a variety of bourbons. This is home to the largest bourbon collection in the USA. Peter Newberry, the owner and connoisseur is incredibly knowledgable. It's a great experience to do a sampling with him. Be sure to check the hours before you go, they do have limited hours and close the entire month of January. I also highly recommend his Old Fashioned, it's amazing!”

“This is in one neighborhood over and is fantastic! A very nice atmosphere with husband and wife owners who are very personable! They struggled to open it financially and are now ranked on the top of the best restaurants! A nice story! You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner on the weekends too! Prices are reasonable and the food is outstanding!”
