Eat at Historic, Famous Twig and Leaf This October
Twig and Leaf was built in the well-loved Highlands community in 1962. It was designated a local landmark when the neighborhood came together to save the diner from a CVS pharmacy that was planned to be built.
Enjoy Twig and Leaf
In order to get the designation as a historic landmark, Twig and Leaf needed 200 signatures from within the county, 101 from residents who lived within a one-mile radius of the property. Twig and Leaf got 679 signatures, 245 from the nearby one-mile area. That’s a pretty ringing endorsement and it was enough to make Twig and Leaf a historic part of the Highlands.
The Twig and Leaf menu is packed with favorites. Come in for breakfast to get a country ham platter, biscuits and gravy platter or country fried steak platter, to name just a few options. And oh yes, they mean platter. You can build your own omelet or order an a la carte breakfast, too. There's a full lunch and dinner menu that includes a ton of specialty sandwiches and deli sandwiches, including the famous Kentucky hot brown. Twig and Leaf is at 2122 Bardstown Road, right in the heart of the Highlands.
