The Midway Cafe Starts Sunday Brunch in Fort Thomas

Patti Groneck, Erika Kraus, Kelley Groneck and Shaun Groneck before the inaugural Sunday Funday at The Midway Cafe
in Fort Thomas on 6-19-16. 

There are a lot of reasons to celebrate Fort Thomas, but perhaps one of the best has been the revitalization of The Midway Cafe in Fort Thomas. 

They are adding Sunday brunch (menu included below) and kicking the festivities off with "Sunday Funday" - an event that starts at 10:00 a.m. in the dining room at 1017 S. Fort Thomas Avenue. 

The tables and chair are cleared out and $10 buys you a fitness class and then two cocktails after that class. Live entertainment follows the class. 

This could be a new Sunday tradition in Fort Thomas. 

Yesterday, Kelley Groneck of Barre3 Fort Thomas was the featured local fitness teacher. 

Fort Thomas Matters and Braxton Brewing Co. are the co-sponsors of the event. Choose from the Midway's signature Bloody Mary bar, two Braxton brews or bottomless mimosas. Then stay for brunch to get your day started off right. 

Co-owner, Erika Kraus gets the Bloody Mary bar ready. 

The dining room at The Midway Cafe will transform to your fitness studio for the morning.

  1. Is Smoking still permitted inside? That's the only reason I haven't been by in a long while - I can't stand the smoke.

    1. no smoking. new owners, new menu. it's completely different. check out this article we wrote in June 2015:

  2. The new owners have done a nice job with the Midway. Food and service both good. My only complaint is the noise level. Every time we've been there, the patrons at the bar don't just converse, they practically scream.

  3. The new Midway Café is great. The owners are fantastic and it has a great atmosphere. People who haven't been in for a while should check it out.
