Graham bar, tres leche cake, slutty brownie - and yes, Blue Bell. Sweets too numerous to mention, made in house by the kidders behind the counter. Comfortable booths, few tables. Bryan has all the answers and recipes.

I had a range of little dessert like cakes. Tiramisu was my favorite then thin mint, brownies were ok. Great for a little treat and $2 a cake I thought was very reasonable compared to some cupcake places and these little treats were delicious.

Not everything downtown needs to be pricey. The food here is fresh and reasonable. The owners are so friendly. You know this is a good spot as it is usually packed with Lexington locals.
