Beginning Friday, May 22nd The Burley Market & Café will begin offering outdoor seating in addition to curbside and delivery service. We will continue offering online ordering and phone orders.

For several key reasons, we have decided to keep our dining room closed. The most exciting reason is because we have been making several improvements and finishing our kitchen remodel! So if you happen to walk by and see a rather messy dining room, it’s because we currently have half of our kitchen items temporarily stored there!

We remain extremely cautious as we operate and stay healthy at work.  We have members of our staff who have children with special needs and fall in the high-risk category for COVD-19. Others have elderly family in their home. We are taking every precaution, adhering to CDC guidelines, and diligently sanitize. We are attempting to offer the safest work environment for our staff as well and planning the safest dining experience for our customers when the time comes.


At 33% occupancy, we will be permitted to have 16 customers in our café at one time. This means we will likely only have four or five tables. It’s a downside of having a small space. However, we are offering eight tables outside on Pike and Walnut Street and can possibly expand this seating area if needed.


We are all excited to see our customers again. We want life back in our dining room again, but this will take time and there will be changes that we don’t really care for, but it is to keep us all safe as we now learn to live in a world with COVID-19. We hope that everyone is patient with Cynthiana food establishments and retailers. Be kind, stay healthy, stay local, and when your shopping and errands are complete, stay home. We are thrilled to press on and continue to be a part of Cynthiana’s come back.

The Burley Market & Cafe is located in a beautifully restored building in downtown Cynthiana. It's a unique blend of a coffee shop, breakfast & lunch café & gift shop with a  bar.


The Burley Market is a Kentucky Proud café and utilizes many locally-sourced ingredients for a freshly prepared menu . We offer a variety of paninis, sandwiches, salads, soups, and desserts. The Burley Market is famous for our homemade Cyn City Cinnamon Rolls, an old family recipe, which is a terrific treat that pairs well with our delicious, locally-roasted coffee.


Our market features local/Kentucky Proud products, an assortment of gifts, mugs, handcrafted wood cheeseboards and cutting boards, local pottery, coffee & tea items, hemp products, and more! 

The Burley Market & Cafe is a reflection of our motto-

eat well, drink well, play well, live well.

We proudly host The Cynthiana Bourbon Society on the third Thursday of each month.
