DV8 Breakfast

First Stop - Breakfast

Dv8 Kitchen

Wilson's Grocery in Greyline Station

Next - Lunch

What's special about it: The Grocery had been established for more than 75 years before it was named Wilson's.

Wilson's Grocery

In 1995 Roger Wilson purchased the shop. Wilson and his Wife, Connie, lived above the grocery store for 23 years while they owned the shop. Wilson's Grocery carries many local products including: bread from Sunrise Bakery, Bagels from Great Bagel & Bakery, Coffee from Magic Beans Coffee Roasters and Eggs from Clark Family Farm, Ice Cream and Gelato from Sav's Chill and Sorella Galateria and Kombucha Tea from Thrive Kombucha. This hidden gem continues to emphasize it's meat selection. It has been noted that the shop still carries "The Same Country Ham Everybody Goes Nuts For".

  • Where I would Go:

    All of the "Pop Up" Vendors in the middle section! This is where Lexington has provided a chance for small businesses across the city to setup a small space to sell their creative Arts. From Popcorn to haircuts and homemade stuffed animals, there is something for everyone!

    Make sure that you visit Rayann's Popcorn for an after lunch light dessert. A coupon for her popcorn can be found on our coupon page!

    Although We've already had breakfast, North Lime Coffee and Donuts is a must. Grab some donuts for later, or a coffee for now! This is one of their many locations, but you can find unique donut flavors at each location (I love trying their donut of the day, but also love a good ole' chocolate donut!)

    Vintage Therapy, Poppy & Pomelo, and forage plant shop are just a few of my favorite staple stores found in the permanent shopping spaces.
