Foodie Finds is an occasional column here at Wandering Educators, sharing our favorite places to eat around the world.

 

One of our very favorite small towns in the midwest is Yellow Springs, Ohio.
We always head there when we're in the area, visiting my mother-in-law.
Yellow Springs is a charming small college town (Antioch College), with lots
of cute stores and great people watching!

 

We were visiting there last week, and decided to ask our favorite store
owners what THEIR favorite foodie finds were. What fun! Here's the list..,

 

 

One of my dear friends lives in Yellow Springs and works at the library. While our daughter played with the jumbo bears in the children's area, I watched the library teem with happy people of all ages.

WHAT a great meeting place! and our friend, Carolion's, favorite place to eat? Ha Ha Pizza. We went there together, and I concur - delicious, fresh, yummy pizza (gourmet toppings!) and beautiful decor.

Our very favorite store in Yellow Springs, Asian Collection, sells all sorts
of really cool Asian goods. They are located at 309 Xenia Avenue.  Chris,
the store owner, suggested Williams Eatery and Gathering Place. The owners, Lawren and Diana Williams, feature both Peruvian and American food.

Our favorite coffeeshop is Dino's Cappuccino's. Decorated with all sorts of
Italian flags, etc., they serve great coffee and have free wifi. People
watching is a great idea, if you don't have your laptop with you. And yes, you may see Dave Chappelle, who is a local.

The good folks at Dino's recommended the Winds Cafe for a special meal. The Winds Cafe started out as a collective cafe, in 1977. 30+ years later, they have evolved into a great restaurant that respects both the seasons and the qualities of excellent food.

Lastly, while we perused the gorgeous pottery at Yellow Springs Pottery, we queried the owners as to their favorite places to eat.  They mentioned Peach's Grill, for great American bar food - including yummy hamburgers! - and lots of live music.
