This Gas Station Cafe Is The Most Scrumptious Secret In Kentucky

The best eateries in Kentucky can often be found in the most unexpected places, such as attached to a rather ordinary gas station. Most people do not relate gas stations to fine dining, but that just depends on what your definition of fine dining happens to be. If it means amazing food, sweet treats, and a longstanding record of positively impacting the community, then Amon’s Sugar Shack in Somerset is as fine as it gets. This gas station cafe is indeed located adjacent to a Shell station, but it is one of the most scrumptious secrets in Kentucky.
