Louisville, KY
Monday-Friday 11am-8pm
Saturday 11:30 am- 4pm

Crave Cafe is nearing 12 years of being in business, and rightfully so — its menu is absolutely mouth-watering. Located in the heart of Frankfort Avenue shops and restaurants, Crave offers a wide selection of wraps, salads, sandwiches, and a soup menu that changes daily. One of the favorite menu items is The Big Dirty — a grilled pretzel roll topped with au jus roast beef, smoked turkey, honey ham, havarti cheese, shredded cabbage, tomato, and “dirty rice.”
The cafe’s chicken salads are also a huge hit, with three variations to choose from — Cashew Chicken Salad, Granny Ruth’s Chicken Salad (with green olives, pecans, chopped egg, and celery), and Sweetie Pie Chicken Salad (with red grapes, candied pecans, and celery).

You won’t want to skip my personal favorite — The Nest‚ a delicious dill egg salad piled high on top of hearty bread. Grab a delicious lunch and enjoy it in the cozy dining area looking out onto Frankfort Avenue. The food is delightful, and so is the service.

After a tasty lunch at Crave, walk across Frankfort Avenue to 5-0-Lou Gift Shop. Here you will find stylish Kentucky-themed gifts.
The store is packed with one-of-a-kind souvenirs and jewelry pieces. I doubt you can leave without purchasing one of the many beautiful pieces of artwork that adorn the walls. I’m speaking from experience. I bought an adorable St. Matthews poster crafted by Madpixel Art & Design, and it’s easily one of the most tasteful pieces hanging in my house now.
5-0-Lou has a selection of cute baby gear, a wide variety of T-shirts for adults, handmade candles, and food and drinks — all made right here in Kentucky.
