The Track Kitchen is an Aiken icon. Located off Mead Avenue in the horse district it is known for a long leisurely breakfast, serve yourself coffee, and lots of local characters. It is not Waffle House. It's a place to sit, chat with your friends and family, meet Aiken residents and get away from your cell phone. The service may be slow and will get even slower if you hassle Carol. Regulars will get served first, so don't get excited if you're sitting for awhile. Ponder the track history on the walls, sit down and enjoy non-Starbucks coffee, and commune with the slow, quiet pace that makes the Track Kitchen so special. It's not new and shiny. It's wonderful and irreplaceable.
