I moved back to Ky (where I am from) nine months ago, I am getting use to new places to hang out and to go and I must say that Newport, Ky has a lot of good places to do just that 🙂
plus one of our Grocery Stores is in Newport 🙂
As I am friends with the Mayor of the City of Newport, he recently told me about a few more places that would be opening and I am looking forward to trying those places.
But in the mean time, the main strip down the center of town has a “Wide” variety of places, from diners (that have good diner food to home style cooking), burger places, pizza places that are so GOOD, a bakery to coffee shops.
That’s just to name a few, there are all kinds of small shops along the way too, and lots of stuff off the side streets too like Sweet Tooth Candy Shop…not only do they have all kinds of candy and they make all kinds of candy and fudge, but they have Ice Cream with freshly made waffle cones and ice balls…that post will be coming on up 🙂
There is a lot to choose from!!!
But today I want to feature the Mommoth Cafe, I stumbled upon this place one day and loved it. They are open only till 3pm, but don’t let that stop you, get your butt up and get in there 🙂
I am now known to girl that works their as “It’s my Saturday”, when I first went in to the shop I was talking to them and they commented about the weekend and I told them that today was my weekend “It’s my Saturday” I said (see my off day’s are on Tues & Weds)…so now when I walk in she always says “Hey it’s my saturday” it’s like I’m Norm from “Cheers” when he would walk into the Bar everyone would say his name 🙂
This is what you can expect when you come to Newport, good friendly people that make you feel welcome
On my last trip there a friend of mine and I went for lunch and again this place has plenty to choose from 😛
Check out the menu
As I started off with a Coke Zero (my fav)
Roasted Turkey, bacon, gouda cheese, with jalapeno jam on a grilled ciabatta roll
It also came with a side, I got the homemade chips & salsa
My friend got “The Elliot Ness”
Roasted Turkey, smoked gouda, Mammoth red onion-cranberry marmalade, lettuce on whole grain bread with a side of horseradish mayo
Theses sandwiches were to die for, we shared a little with each other
I just loved adding the horseradish mayo to my sandwich
Then I added it to my chip with both salsas 🙂
It was a 3 napkin meal 🙂
Not only is this such a cute place to visit or hang out, they have plenty of seating inside
and they have a few table outside too. My friend and I love to hang out there on a nice day, sit watch the people and traffic go by, I give this place “two thumbs up” for sure.
So if you ever make to Newport, Ky this place is a great stop for breakfast or lunch and they have great coffee too!! 🙂
And tell them that “It’s My Saturday” sent you 🙂
