Have you been to Caldo in Lexington Ky?

Nothing beats a hot bowl of soup after being out in the cold all day. There are some great places to get soup in town including Caldo in Lexington Ky. This new business that opened last year is part of a big nutrition craze that’s all about bone broth. People in LA and New York are drinking it for better health and there are even broth stands in Central Park. Regular consumption of broth is claimed to help your joints, strengthen your bones, improve your complexion, and build better immunity.

I think it’s cool that Lexington is in on this hot new trend! Caldo serves their broth in a cup so you can drink it as you would coffee or other hot beverage. Flavors include chicken, beef, miso, and ginger with the option to add extras such as chili oil, lemon, fish sauce or tomato paste. You can get your broth cold or even in a smoothie. You’ll also find salads, granola and coffee on the menu with everything centered around the intention of harnessing the healing powers of whole foods. Caldo is locally owned by a well-known chef and caterer who also owns Wild Thyme, a popular gourmet cooking shop.

The broth shop is located in the booming Warehouse Block shopping district just east of downtown. This recently renovated area is full of small locally owned businesses including National Provisions French bakery, market and beer hall (formally National Boulangerie), Designs Unlimited Jewelry, a trumpet maker, Breakout Games, Locals bar, and many more.

The Henry Clay Estate consists of an 18-room mansion built in 1857 on 20-acres of parkland.
