Whether you’re a foodie, a hungry traveler or simply looking for a snack, Boyle County is rich and diverse with Southern comfort food and multinational flavors.

Coffee and Treats

Part coffee parlor and part café, The Hub Coffee House and Café serves favorites, from homemade bagels and muffins to fresh salads, sandwiches and soups. Signature espresso drinks, coffees and teas are guaranteed 100% organic and fair-trade, making this one splurge you can feel good about. The Hub also partners with local organizations, such as The Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning, United Way and the Salvation Army. 

Free Wi-Fi accompanied by cozy indoor and outdoor seating welcomes visitors to stay for a while or simply refuel for the journey ahead.

The Twisted Sifter bakery offers hundreds of combinations of cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes and pies to make your wedding, birthday party or any other special occasion unforgettable. Every ingredient is made from scratch and to-order by shop owner Pam Birt, and if you’d rather dine in with her than make a custom order, she offers additional “create-a-cake” parties that are perfect for sweets-lovers of all ages.

Savor Classic Comfort Food
LuLu’s Tavern, located in downtown Danville, serves a lunch and dinner menu focused on farm to table items that showcase Kentucky’s agricultural scene. Get Kentucky Proud ribeye steaks, farm fresh dinner salads or a fried chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. The restaurant also offers Atlantic salmon, a full bar and daily happy hours.

Barbecue Lovers

For some classic and notable barbecue, stop by Old 27 BBQ, or visit the new Brother's BBQ & Brewing Co. The Kentucky State BBQ Festival celebrates the pit-masters of the Bluegrass State. It was named a Top 20 event in the U.S. by the Southeast Tourism Society. It brought in celebrity pit-masters, barbecue and bean-eating competitions, biker races and even special inflatables and activities for the kids. With plenty to eat and prizes to win, stay tuned for Kentucky’s next barbecue festival.
