Southern through and through
|Mammy's Kitchen Front Entrance|
It feels much older than its 2007 beginnings with its quirky interior and diner inspired menu. Mammy's Kitchen is part barnyard, rainforest, inn, and garden rolled into a café that started as a home accessories, antique and sewing shop. How did that happen? That's another whole story that you can check out at bardstownmammys.com.
|Mammy's on the Backside|
We were looking for a light lunch and found it in the wildly-colored back dining area. The menu is classic Kentuckian comfort food with some interesting takes that we were fortunate enough to spot. Lori and I had the Baby Brown, their version of the traditional Kentucky Hot Brown in a lunch-sized portion - a very nice choice.
|The Baby Brown|
John had the Slaw Burger, evidently more widely-known to others than to me. I had not heard of this local classic. Theirs met with a thumbs up.
|Jalapeño Cheddar Burger|
Kaylee and Bryce shared the Jalapeño Cheddar Burger sparked with deep fried jalapeños. They were wowed!
|Fried Green Tomato Sandwich|
Eric had the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich that didn't seem quite as special as everyone else's was. He was hoping the Butterscotch Pie that we ogled on the way in would change his opinion. We shared it, as Lori and John did with the Chocolate Cream Pie, which was the clear winner. Both fillings were nice and creamy, but the crusts were a bit hard and pasty. Service was young and attentive, a combination that patrons at other tables didn't seem appreciate as much as we did. They may have been looking for Flo.
