This Cajun & Creole Cafe is the newest addition to the quickly growing food options on Lexington’s north side. Robbie Morgan, creator and former director of Crave Lexington Food + Music festival is excited to bring this tasty and friendly joint to town. J. Gumbo’s (www.jgumbos.com) started as a Louisville-based concept and is still owned by the family who opened the first establishment.

The menu features classic Cajun and Creole dishes like Étouffèe, Drunken Chicken and Jambalaya alongside Morgan’s own daily handcrafted and seasonal Kentucky Proud specials.  We are proud to support area small businesses throughout our menu.

For instance, just look at these local breweries that are regulars on our beer list:  Rock House Brewing, Mirror Twin, Ethereal Brewing, Blue Stallion and Pivot Brewing. Heck, we even put beers in our bread puddings!

Plus, we feature local favorites like Sav’s Piment Hot Sauce and Sorella Gelateria almost daily on our regular menu.

We are happy to accommodate your food preferences be they vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or low carb. Plus our menu items are affordable price and all in a super chill and cozy environment.
