Once Voted The Best Diner In Kentucky, Spare-Time Is Back As The Scrumptious Lou Lou’s Cafe
Many locals throughout Kentucky have their favorite diner or restaurant that feels like home. These special eateries serve up homemade meals in an atmosphere that is friendly and welcoming. And while many of these establishments would call themselves the best diner in Kentucky, only a few have won that actual title by a local publication or ranking list. Spare-Time in Alexandria was a popular diner that was once named the best and has had its ups and downs over the years. Things are looking up for this diner now as it has a new life as Lou Lou’s Cafe at Spare-Time, and it’s now as scrumptious as it’s ever been.
