One of the fun things about driving around the state (I still drive around even if I’m not posting) is finding all of the new little places that serve really amazing food. There may not be a place that says that better than 34:Ate in Williamson, a coal-mining town on the Kentucky line that I had never associated with good food.
34:Ate is a little lunch place in downtown Williamson (210 Pike Street) that does soups, sandwiches, desserts, and the occasional pop-up dinner (I think that means they just open up for dinner because they feel like it). The name is a reference to Psalm 34:8. Everything is super-fresh and the staff couldn’t be any friendlier. Honestly, most places could take customer service lessons from these guys.
On my stop in, I had a peach iced tea and a Mesquite BLT (mesquite turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and a peppery mayo):
High quality sandwich that was very satisfying. However, I was not so rude as to pass on dessert (a cherry pistachio trifle)
Dessert was amazing and the options rotate and are listed on a chalkboard. They have core lunch menu listed on the website (http://34atewilliamson.wix.com/34ate) and facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/34ate/) but don’t be afraid to check out the specials. But if you are anywhere nearby, you should go.
