Breakfast at Windy Corner Market and Restaurant

Windy Corner Market and Restaurant is located in rural Fayette County, Kentucky amid beautiful horse farms.
A friend, Linda B., told me about Windy Corner this summer, and this was my first opportunity to go.
Mary and I drove down the two lane Bryan Station Road through beautiful horse country on the out-skirts of Lexington,
 the "Horse Capital of the World", to enjoy a late breakfast of country ham, eggs, home fried potatoes, cheese grits, and a biscuit with butter and honey. Yum — a great Kentucky breakfast!

Decorated horse statues are located around Lexington.
I don't know the title of the one below, but it has historic scenes of the Lexington area painted on it.

 A partial menu is on the chalk board behind the counter where you place your order.
 The interior is decorated with local horse farm jockey silks around the casual dining room.
There are ladders in the photo below because the screened porch is being made into an all-weather dining room.
They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and have a variety of bakery items, ice cream and Kentucky products available.
What a fun place!

When I was young I lived on the C. V. Whitney farm just down Bryan Station from Windy Corners. I remember when the little store (that's all it was) had a coal stove in the back for all the old men to sit around (at least, they looked old to me then) and the best old-fashioned cheese that I've ever had. What wonderful memories!!

My Grandparent's homestead was in Ohio on river. We often took drives to Kentucky to see the rolling country side, horse barns and endless white fences. I have always said if I wonder off some day just look for me in Kentucky is was always so pretty and green there. Thanks for sharing this Market place I bet the food was good too :)

This does look like a fun place! Also, I'm especially intrigued because my town is going to have some of those life-size horse statues painted by next April. I'm looking forward to seeing the results! (We have a lot of horse farms here -- don't know if I've ever mentioned that.)
