Luna is a food truck in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, with delicious brunch + dinner menus. Find them at The Grove (spring and summer) or in Al's Bar (fall and winter).
Last summer, I was walking in downtown Lexington when I saw something that stopped me in my tracks.
I saw a wooden gate, a decorative wrought iron gate, and an open door — and through that door was lots and lots of greenery. It looked like a secret garden!
What was this place?
It was The Grove, an absolutely gorgeous outdoor patio area and mini food and drink hub in downtown Lexington, Kentucky.
And parked inside was the cutest food truck ever.

Luna was actually closed the first time I found it, but we came back a few weeks later to check out this self-proclaimed "cutie food truck".
We arrived on a Saturday around lunchtime during Luna's "brunch" hours. There was plenty of (only outdoor) seating.
Luna's Brunch Menu
Luna's menu wasn't long, but it all sounded amazing, so it took us a few minutes to decide what to get.
If you're on a plant-based diet, Luna is a great choice! While the menu isn't exclusively vegan, there were lots of vegan options.
And if you're not on a plant-based diet (we aren't), both the vegan and non-vegan options are tempting.
We opted for a breakfast Impossible burger and a coconut rice bowl with crispy tofu.
Luna Food Truck at The Grove
While we waited on our food, I wandered The Grove.
Some of the shaded seating was already taken (and it was an extra sunny day), but I found a seat in partial shade next to a citrus tree.
There was more seating past a "secret garden" arch sign, and there were gorgeous plants in every direction.
When our food arrived, we dug right in!
The double-stacked Impossible burger was served with chips and was delicious.
The coconut rice bowl was also delicious, and I was happy with the little bites of kimchi and the gorgeous watermelon radish slices.
If we'd been in the mood for some coffee to go with brunch, there's a Nate's coffee shop location that also shares space in The Grove and is a fantastic choice.
We love Nate's nitro cold brew.
Or we could have gotten cocktails from Harvey's Bar, also located in The Grove. We saw several groups enjoying mimosas.
Luna Food Truck at Al's Bar
As gorgeous and serene as Luna's location at The Grove is, it's clearly not a spot that works year round. Because this is Kentucky, not southern California, outdoor-only seating is definitely a problem in winter.
Where can you find Luna when it's cold outside?
