When you return from your expedition, Julep Kitchen awaits. Bainbridge likes to call this place down-home-gourmet, serving brunch, lunch, and dinner, along with an all-important kids’ menu. The restaurant is also open to guests and visitors. If you’re looking to wet your whistle, the Julep Bar has your drink order. Locally crafted beer, wine, and champagne are waiting for you, along with creative cocktails with the classic Mint Julep taking the front seat.
Julep farms is a mountain retreat unlike anything else. It’s a family operation that makes you feel like family—ponies, Pyrenees, and all. There’s an Ingles just up the road in Franklin where you can stock up and fuel up for the ride home, though you may find it hard to leave after spending some time here.
