Civil War Museum & Coffee Shop
If you ask the Parnell's, they will say that it is a constant work in progress. It doesn't take one long to ask the question, "What more can be done to the Homefront Cafe?" Something unique to Maysville, it has a life all its own. With a coffee house theme and Civil War Museum to boot, this place is sure to draw the interest of the local or the out-of-towner.
After owning a traveling Civil War Museum and touring across the country, the Parnell's decided it was finally time to locate a place to call home. Something permanent was needed. That is how, last July, they ended up in Maysville, KY. Their museum, no longer viewed out of the back of their diesel truck, now sits in the back of the Cafe. Don't let the site fool you; the entire place is full of historical artifacts, books, and information that will make the average history buff salivate. (We haven't even talked about the food, yet.)
Although the menu isn't huge, it caters to the common appetite. Steaming home-made soups are offered everyday. Who knows what will be in the pot when you stroll in.... The Homefront Cafe has served about every kind of soup imaginable, from Chicken Noodle to Portabella Mushroom. It even comes with a fresh-baked homemade serving of their very own flat bread. You can smell the aroma when you walk in the door. Mmmmm!
Not hungry? Feel free to sit down with your computer in their Internet Friendly wireless Cafe. Enjoy a Latte, Coffee, or Sweet Tea. If you forget your computer, then read a book, or pursue the extensive collection of books adorning the shelves both up and downstairs.
