Stopped in for a coffee before the football game. What a nice surprise. Excellent coffee, cozy atmosphere, friendly staff. Glad we drove off the main road.

We always make sure that whenever we're in or driving through Richmond, KY, we always stop at our favorite coffee shop. My wife goes nuts for their Vietnamese coffee! It's heavenly! I love their hot chocolate and their great baked goods. The best staff, and a special thanks to the great hostess with the mostest; you guys are awesome! Kevin... More

Yeah, I've been to the usuals and they are ah, ok for a fix of caffeine. But Purdy's is the Java Mecca! Recently back from a trip to Sarasota FL, we visited the infamous Pastry Art downtown. Mmmm... So, Purdy's is to Richmond like Pastry Art is to Sarasota!

The refurbished Main St. building, is the first indication of the quality of the hospitality and refreshments inside. Excellent, friendly service and coffee selection along with homemade food! I am proud to say this fine establishment is in my hometown.

We stopped here while traveling through Kentucky based on good reviews. We typically hit Starbucks, but love trying local coffee shops whenever we come across one. Purdys did not disappoint! The coffee was wonderful! I had the chicken salad sandwich as well and it was a little small on the portion size, but definitely homemade and very tasty.

Purdy's is a must stop. Yes, it is an EKU student hang out, but in a cool building, with friendly staff, and great coffee. They have yummy pastries and a menu of wraps and salads.

My husband and I traded our six kids to coffee and sandwiches and desserts. They got everyone's order perfect and serve this all with a smile. Very professional, clean, and well done. The staff was excellent. The best coffee we've been to in Kentucky, and we've been to a lot!

Discovered this charming gem while visiting newly relocated family in Richmond this weekend. It will be a highly anticipated stop on future future visits. We tried a smoothie, lemonade and scone on this trip... but what we saw on on other tables made us vow to return hungrier and ready to sink into one of their easy chairs.

Thank InspiredByNature
