LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville entrepreneurs are full of creative ideas resulting in new businesses.
The owner of the several businesses in the Highlands, including the Holy Grale, offered WDRB News an inside look into his newest venture.
"Our latest idea is based on our travels in Italy," said Tyler Trotter, talking about his new breakfast and lunch eatery on Baxter Avenue in the Highlands.
Gralehaus opened just in the past couple of weeks.
"It is more of a stand-up restaurant, there are not a lot of seats, although we have a few, it is kind of a grab and go place," he said.
"We are a cafe, a coffee place," said chef Andy Meyers. "You can come in and get crepes, breakfast sandwiches and we have a lot of lunch items as well."
Gralehaus is located just across the courtyard from Trotter's other Highlands operation.
For four years, the Holy Grale has been a popular beer bar and eatery housed in an old Unitarian church on Bardstown Road.
Trotter started his first business in 2009 in NuLu with the opening of the Louisville Beer Store, which is still going strong.
"From the get go all of our businesses have done even better than we expected, it has been great to see them all grow," said Trotter.
Now he says the next step is to combine the newly-opened breakfast venture with three bedrooms upstairs, and create a bed and breakfast that should be ready in a couple of months.
And there is even more to come.
"We eventually hope to open a small brewery behind the beer store," Trotter added.
He, his partner and his employees all contributing to the vitality and diversity of Louisville's restaurant and entertainment scene.
