Chose Josie's because it was closest to where we were staying. Wow! So glad we strolled in. Josie's is a great neighborhood diner/restaurant. We liked it so much that we went back the next day before we left town. Their pancakes are AMAZING. Served with whipped butter and cream, these pancakes were a melody in the mouth. Light and fluffy.... More

Enjoy luncheon/brunch at Josie's. The Mango smoothie, chicken salad, and all day breakfast were family favorites.

I was visiting my son at UK and we were looking for something outside of the normal "chain" restaurants. We were not sure what to think when we walked into Josie's, it looks like a mom and pop place with eclectic decor. We were totally surprised at the menu!

The location is what drives this restaurant. It is the only place near that serves breakfast and is very crowded at breakfast. Lunch and dinner also served.

Awesome Eggs Benedict. I even tried the Cheesy Grits-wow. Service. Susan served us at the counter and was the model for southern warmth. After dropping my daughter off at Univ. of Kentucky, I plan to come back here each time I visit from Boston.
