Brunch is an everyday affair at Gralehaus, a cozy “bed & beverage” in Louisville, KY. The new-school B&B has three guest rooms outfitted with reading material from Carmichael’s Bookstore, art by Letitia Quesenberry, soap from Peace of the Earth, and furnishings from Scout on Market. Rooms start at $150, but you needn’t stay overnight to sample the food. Stop by any day between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to dig into black pepper biscuits ladled with duck sausage gravy, maple syrup, and duck jus; lamb and grits that sing with North African spices; or a satisfyingly simple sweet potato-and-peanut soup.
FYI, co-owners Lori Beck and Tyler Trotter also run the well-stocked Louisville Beer Store and Gralehaus’s yard-sharing sister bar, Holy Grale. They know their way around a drink list and even offer a rotating “coffee rocket”: a special draft line devoted to coffee-infused craft beer. (A recent pairing saw Dark Horse Brewing Company’s blueberry stout shot through with a fruit-forward Ethiopian from Good Folks Coffee. It was like ☕️🍻💥🙌.)
