Hey, y’all! If you’re a regular here on the blog, you know that Shelby County, Kentucky is one of my – if not my – favorite communities in the Commonwealth. It’s chock-full of southern charm and hospitality, boasts great shopping, and is perfectly situated between Louisville and Lexington. On my recent trip to Simpsonville, I discovered my new favorite spot in town and I’m tickled pink to share it with y’all today: Little Mount Lavender. I know y’all are going to love it!

Inside the store, you’ll find every lavender product that you could dream of: soaps, bath bombs, candles, oils, lotions, and more. I’ve loved everything that I’ve ever tried from Little Mount Lavender.

New Location

While they used to have a location in Downtown Shelbyville, they have expanded and now occupy the fabulous Old Stone Inn in Simpsonville (even closer for my Louisville readers). You can read more about the history of the Old Stone Inn, which is Kentucky Historical Marker #1889, here.

The new location is fabulous. While the shopping component is enough reason in and of itself to make a trip, there’s a secret kept in the back of the historic property that boasts antique wood floors, chandeliers, and gorgeous furniture. The secret? Their new cafe!

Dining at Little Mount Lavender

Before walking into the dining room, you’ll notice a case of the most delicious desserts that you have ever seen. While I hope to return to try them all, I did get to sample two of them: the fresh crème puff with Bavarian Crème & strawberries + the cheesecake, which boasts a tangy lavender blueberry balsamic drizzle.

The Menu

The crème puff was, quite honestly, the largest crème puff that I have ever seen. It’s even better than it looks in the photo, if that is even possible.

That said, my favorite was the cheesecake. The balsamic glaze was next-level delicious and the oat-based crust was fabulous.

Other menu highlights are the cheese boards / charcuterie boards.

The cheese board features fresh fruit, nuts, homemade bread, dates, high-quality cheeses, and dips/spreads that are finger-lickin’ good. The assortment of the day is chef’s choice.

The charcuterie board is similar to the cheese board, though includes meat pairings: salami, pepperoni, and proscuitto.

Both of the boards were beautifully curated and styled. Perfect for sharing!

While in the dining room, I also had the opportunity to try the lavender lemonade. A combination that was new to me, yet won’t become a stranger — it was divine (and beautiful, to boot)!
