dishes of food on table: fried chicken, green beans, smashed potatoes, biscuits


Cafés, coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants with menus inspired from around the globe can be found in Paris and Bourbon County.

Where busy travelers once lined up with suitcases in hand, hungry diners now gather at Trackside at the Depot, housed in a renovated 1800s Paris train depot and serving up southern specialties like fried green tomatoes, Kentucky Hot Brown, biscuits, country green beans and other flavorful seasonal sides.

Paradise Cafe brings a taste of Asia to the world’s tallest three-story building, and Italian food enthusiasts will enjoy our array of pizza and pasta restaurants. Craving comfort? Craig’s Downtown Eatery has homestyle American fare like burgers, catfish, salads and sides.

Visit Happy People Coffee Company, Lil’s Coffee House or Churn & Brews for coffee-based drinks and yummy baked goods, and Frank’s Donuts serves up dozens of delectably sweet donuts and pastries daily.

When you think about excellent Mexican food, Texas and California might first spring to mind. But in Kentucky, Paris is swiftly becoming known for “numerosos restaurantes Mexicanos,” a “Margarita Trail” of sorts! With a flourishing Mexican/Latino population, Paris’ culinary scene is following suit, with restaurants like Riviera Maya, Pericos, La Esperanza, Cilantro, Burnaco’s and more, serving up fare with south of the border flair. Browse their menus, choose your favorite, and shout, “¡Vamos a comer!” (Let’s go eat!)
