I can't say enough good things about Barbara Lee's. It has become our favorite goto breakfast spot. The traditional home-style cooked to order food (in plain sight) is only surpassed by the family atmosphere of the servers and kitchen staff. It's just like going down home to grandma's house. It's not just breakfast, it's a visit with friendly, familiar smiling faces. A true best-kept-secret of Louisville's finest. Update: After this morning's breakfast at Barbara Lee's I felt Louisville and the world deserves to know, nay nay, must know exactly what I think of this one-of-a-kind priceless, mom & pop breakfast diner. It would be almost criminal to not share this gem with everyone who's ever desired a breakfast made with love and served up with wit and banter. My husband and I have been frequenting Barbara Lee's now for about three years. It's become a regular go to spot for breakfast on weekends and occasionally weekdays. It's truly breakfast like your grandma made and service like you're part of the family. They're people who are happy to see you come and love to make you smile. Lori, the waitress is a jokester full of wit and charm. Terry, the server, sous chef and sidekick fills orders and drinks. Mom & Pop are at the grill and bro is at the counter and till. They make a seamless team who work like a well oiled clock. Whether you're looking to get in, get out and be on your way or relax, take your time and have more coffee, they'll make your visit the way they make your breakfast... just how you want it. The mood here is always fast paced lighthearted and the faces are always the same. If you're looking for a regular spot with home-cooked goodness, family friendly charm where everyone knows your name, Barbara Lee's is it!!! Come as you are and leave full as a tick. Be sure to tell them Jamie & Leigh sent you and bring your cash. They don't have time for checks or cards but they do have an ATM just in case you're plastic rich and paper poor.
