Some restaurants simply inspire a road trip. Friends and I had talked about making a Lexington visit for some time. When I shared a link about National Boulangerie, it clinched the deal. We set a date and got serious.
Taking its name from the street it's located on, National Boulangerie is located near downtown Lexington in an area filled with businesses devoted to interior design.
Inside, this gem makes you feel as though you've been transported to Paris. Cases upon cases of French pastries awaited us, holding breads, breakfast tarts, sandwiches, croissants, and more.
Behind another counter: desserts, coffees, and teas.
And behind the counters, a rustic communal table where we sipped and savored our selections and chatted with folks who snapped a photo of our group.
It was a most memorable breakfast.
I'd love to return later in the day to check out more provisions.
