The idea for Leestown Coffee House was born out of years of commuting to and from Lexington and noticing a lack of convenient local options for coffee. Owners (design/quality engineer) Thomas Ward and (photographer) Bre Taulbee started renovations in March 2020, with plans of being open in May. Covid-19 delayed those plans significantly but the Grand Opening finally took place on Oct 2-4, 2020.
