Business Spotlight: Downtown Deli - Best Places to eat in Somerset, Kentucky - Kentucky Photographers
Taylor and I (Sami Jo) spent our morning with the wonderful girls at Downtown Deli. Not only did we eat some very delicious dishes, we were able to hear the history behind why they serve their food the way that they do. Most of you may not know but Jamie, the owner, along side her employees hand-make the bread and soups every morning. The food quality they serve is exquisite and unlike fast food restaurants and other large food chains in the area, they use unprocessed meats from locally owned family farms. Jamie’s grandmother also used to bake pies downtown in the early 70’s which makes it even more special owning her own restaurant downtown. They have a photograph of her grandma walking across downtown Somerset hanging in the deli. Along with other photos of the square in the past, these photographs really set the tone of the proud Somerset southern hospitality they serve. There is no other place like it. So if you’re feeling hungry today at lunch, swing by Downtown Deli and let their freshly made deliciousness treat your taste buds.
Taylor enjoyed a basket filled with homemade chips and the Classic Club. I LOVE the Chicken Salad Croissant and fries.
