When Jennifer and Tim Kazimer opened Kentucky Fudge Co. in Harrodsburg in 2006, they had a few goals: make good fudge, save a historic building, take customers back to days gone by. They seem to be succeeding.
The café is at 225 South Main Street in the former Dedman Drug Store building, which dates to the 1860s. In addition to gourmet fudge, it offers a light menu, gourmet coffee and tea, and hand-dipped ice cream.
On Saturdays it's a venue for musicians. Photographer Stephanie Lyell and husband, Dave happened upon the music when they were looking for a place to have breakfast one morning. "It just kind of said 'Kentucky' to me," said Stephanie Lyell, who's from Ohio.
Kentucky Fudge Co. is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Summer hours, which will extend closing time to 9 p.m., begin in a couple of weeks.
