Best Bite Grill closed on Wednesday, July 31, no reason was given. The food, the service and the staff were wonderful. Folks from many different towns came to dine at the restaurant. I can only say the loss of this restaurant will be felt.
In no way am I diminishing the many fine food establishments we have in Versailles. By naming them I may inadvertently miss a few. We have Alice’s Dairy Bar, Brown’s Sweet Shop & Bakery, Creekside Drive-N-Go, Gus’s Coffee, Creamery & Cafe, Inn of Versailles, Johns Family Market, Little Johns (Subway & Mama DeLuca’s Pizza), McBo’s Lanes, Sideliners Sports Bar & Grill, and Third Base Bar in Frenchtown. Then there is Endless Pint Brewing, Marathon Pizza, Pick Six Drive Thru & Pizza, and the Winery at Versailles.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I only know it is my favorite. A popular breakfast spot has always been the Sweet Shop and it’s the only Versailles restaurant open Sunday mornings. However once a month the Eagles Auxiliary has an awesome breakfast buffet and a couple times of year the Lions and K of C organizations hold breakfast fundraisers on a Sunday. Recently the Sweet Shop posted that they will be closed on Wednesday until further notice. But they remain open from Thursday-Sunday. A couple other breakfast/ coffee hot spots are; Sideliners Sports Bar and Grill is open Monday-Saturday at 5:30 a.m. and Gus’s Coffee, Creamery & Café open Monday-Saturday; 7 a.m. on weekdays and 8:00am on Saturday. And if you’re in a hurry you can grab a breakfast pizza or sandwich at the Marathon station or Little Johns.
