This restaurant housed in a former bank building in the heart of downtown Tipp City offers quality dining in a small-town setting. The decor is warm and welcoming and is a delight for the senses. The fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere while the full bar allows patrons a relaxing stop while awaiting a fabulous meal. The inviting atmosphere encourages relaxed conversation. You may be surprised to find that a restaurant in such a small town has some rather sophisticated choices on the menu alongside your more normal fare, with entrees such as ostrich being offered. If you are looking for a decadent dessert, look no further than the butter-drenched English Tea Cake! An easy drive from all points in the Dayton area, words cannot do it justice. A visit is a must and will be the first of many.

I loved the lobster and crabcake spinach salad. The pumpkin soup was so yummy the consistency was very foamy and the taste was like pumpkin pie! The homemade bread was very moist and delicious too!

This was our first time at the Cafe and we loved it! The atmosphere is cozy, quaint, yet elegant. My husband enjoyed the turkey chili which was well balanced with lots of flavor. I enjoyed the lobster crab cake sandwich...delicious! Also, the homemade focaccia bread was one of the best we ever tasted. The cherry almond bread pudding for dessert was fantastic. We were so impressed that we made reservations to treat our friend’s for their 50th wedding anniversary dinner.

Great service with excellent choices in wine and food. Restaurant Beautifully decorated for the holidays. Food definitely worth the money and wines very fairly priced. The duck breast and the sea bass were cooked to perfection and nicely presented. The pumpkin soup was tasty and topped with pistachios. Loved the creme brûlée and chocolate mousy cake, too.

Thew service was friendly, efficient, and altogether wonderful. The menu is a little limited, and we would rather have fries instead of the homemade chips. The chicken salad was very good, the chicken sandwich was a little messy to eat. We plan to return for a dinner meal. Love the ambiance!

We were early for our reservation but were seated anyway. We had the crab cakes, the salmon and the ribeye. All were very good but the steak was a bit tough. English tea cakes were FANTASTIC!!

The person at the door was very warm and friendly. The server was very knowledgable and warm. The food was outstanding, especially the peanut butter pie. And then I got to go shopping at Hotel Gallery while my husband took a walk and looked at all the beautiful old houses. Unfortunately, there was no choo-choo going by. Tipp City is our favorite place to go out for a Saturday outing from southern Ohio.

The cuisine was exceptional! Every bite was delicious! Would highly recommend the crab Rangoon, crispy Brussel sprouts, pumpkin bisque, ostrich and Scottish salmon entrees… and the icing on the cake was the frozen peanut butter pie with hot fudge!!! Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. We cannot wait to go back!!
