Sunrise Bakery (Lexington, KY)
111 W. Main Street, Lexington, KY 40507, T: 859-255-0304
Sunrise Bakery is truly a little gem, tucked away in a small store in downtown Lexington, Kentucky. It is the type of place you hope to find in the major cities of the United States, but never expect to find in the Midwest. It serves breads, coffee, pastries, and sandwiches – all freshly made. The sandwiches are ‘old world’, i.e. covered with cheeses and meats imported from Italy.
I’m getting The Special ($8), which is a bit similar to the famous Mufaletta at The Central Grocery in New Orleans. The Special has ham, salami, and caracole (all imported from Italy and sliced fresh for the sandwich), olive oil, banana peppers, lettuce and oregano on fresh French bread. Absolutely amazing!
Hard to find a better sandwich shop in the US, let alone outside of the (coastal) big cities.
