The 2 Kates at Elkton, KY

Eating Out in Elkton



A few weeks ago, two of my lady friends took me out to eat in Elkton. We went to The 2 Kates on the square. It's located across the street from the Jefferson Davis Hotel in an old building that used to be a drugstore (as I recall.)

The room is filled with interesting things to see and buy. There are fine antiques, jewelry, little dresses and gowns for children that appear hand-sewn, gift items of all sorts, and works by local artists and artisans. These items are displayed at the front of the room and along the walls. The dining tables are in the back of the room, behind a large, antique cabinet that serves as a room divider.

I had a small bowl of the best tomato soup I've ever eaten. Then I had a great salad and a Kentucky Legend ham sandwich. The sandwich had thin slices of apple in it. Everything was delicious.

Plan ahead if you decide to visit The 2 Kates. The hours are limited.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
