One of my coworkers has great taste in films, books, and restaurants. She doesn’t overly suggest so when she does, I move swiftly. This time her recommendation was The Baker’s Table, an almost brand new restaurant in Newport, KY. So how much do I trust Sherry’s taste? I went for breakfast the very next day after
The Baker’s Table is right for so many reasons. The restaurant is warm, welcoming, and beautifully decorated with cultivated antiques. It’s a bakery, restaurant, and coffee bar in one. This a place you can go by yourself and enjoy a warm cup of coffee, meet a friend for brunch and chat away, or gather around the large baker’s table with your people.
We began our meal with Ricotta Doughnuts. Yep, you heard that right. Doughnuts. Sugary on the outside. Warm and soft on the inside. Paired with a chilled pear-ginger butter = perfection. The child in me really wanted to order more, but the adult in me resisted. But, it’s these details that make The Baker’s Table extra special. The cornmeal pancakes are topped with baked apples, Chantilly cream, and maple syrup. It’s simple, yet special.
I love that The Baker’s Table focuses on locally sourced ingredients and that the menu changes with the seasons. My Egg Sandwich was served on a cheddar scallion biscuit (divine) with pickled red onion, spicy aioli, a fried egg, and bacon. My husband ordered the Fried Chicken Sammy (also served on a homemade biscuit). The fried chicken is topped with spicy slaw, hot sauce, and honey!
Next time I visit, which will be soon, I’m getting the Egg in-a-whole, the French Toast, and the Sourdough Grilled Cheese. OK. Maybe I can’t get all that at one time. Can I?
P.S.- I grabbed a Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie for the road. Again, The Baker’s Table bakes it up just right!
GO THERE (Baker’s Table)! TRY THAT (Ricotta doughnuts, Biscuit Sammys)!
