For those of us living in Kentucky, the struggle to find a late-night bakery is not always an easy one. Most bakeries in the Commonwealth seem to close around 5-6 pm, while some others (mainly in the four big cities of Lexington, Louisville, Paducah, and Bowling Green) stay open through the evenings and close at 8-10 pm. Other KY bakeries close even earlier than that, while others aren’t open at all on certain days, especially Saturday and/or Sunday.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Insomnia Cookies now has two locations in Lexington and Louisville. Both locations are close to the U of L and UK campuses and as you may already be aware, stay open all night long. Not only that, but they also have a delivery service that delivers cookies, ice cream and brownies throughout the wee hours of the morning! This definitely comes in handy for anyone craving a late-night cookie or a cup of ice cream. And for all the college students cramming for a final and getting a little burnt-out with the pizza and burgers, this is a welcome change!
Of course there are some other bakeries and donut shops that stay open at least a little late into the night. Doughdaddy’s Doughnuts in Lexington and Jolly Pirate Donuts in Ashland both stay (or stayed??) open well past 8 pm. But it’s nice to know there is now at least one bakery chain in Kentucky that stays open all through the night!
Know of any others here in KY that stay open this late?? As always, feel free to share them with us!
