Finding a parking place was difficult, but once inside, we really liked this cafe. I had the Salmon Croquet lunch, and it was excellent. My wife chose to get a soup and an appetizer and liked both of them. We split an excellent dessert.

Really enjoyed this restaurant; visited for lunch and specifically tried it because they had a menu labeled with gluten free options. The chips and queso appetizer was the best I've ever had and I'll likely be back for that alone. Fish tacos were OK, seasoning...More

For the past 25 years I have tried to stop by Uptown Cafe when I am in Louisville. Nothing special about the place (except the windows to watch the passing scene on Bardstown Rd.) but the food is consistently very good, as is the service....More
