Red Mug, Lumberjack Latte - Mt Hope OH




I love the look and style of this place.  The staff is super friendly here too.  What I love most about this place is that the owners want to glorify God in all they do.  It doesn't get any better than that to me!!!

They have lots of fun drink options, but I have to say I get the same thing every time.  The Lumberjack.

The Lumberjack is a roasted chestnut tea with maple syrup and frothed milk.  It is rich and comforting. 


Note the sign above, it says CHIA Pudding...not CHAI Pudding....see below.....lol!


I thought it said CHAI PUDDING....no, it was Chia pudding.  Still good, but was hoping for Chai.  It was really actually delicious, especially with the fresh fruit on it!!





Gorgeous day in Holmes County.

Rebecca's Bistro, Iced Chai Raspberry Latte, Walnut Creek OH




My Wednesday Wanderings took me to Walnut Creek, Oh.  It's just about 45 minutes from my house.  I decided to go to Rebecca's Bistro....and last time I was there it was called Rebecca's Tea Room.  I think it has been at least 10 years since I was there. 

Funny thing is I told my parents I was going there for lunch and my mom said that they were there for breakfast!!!  What are the odds???

It was a nice day and many folks were enjoying the outdoors.


I love the inside.  There are lots of places to sit and the tables are spread out nicely for distancing purposes.  It is so quaint and has such a wonderful warm and cozy charm about it.

This bistro was a log cabin that was built in the 1800's!  Rebecca started this business in 2002.


I actually ran into a friend while I was there.  I am amazed, but not surprised how many people I know who love this place.  My parents go when they are in the area, I have a co-worker who was just there.  I have a cousin who goes a often too.  When I posted on Facebook I was here, I had a friend in Mansfield who said she loves this place.  People from all over know and love Rebecca's.  It is a gem of a place!!

The staff is fun and super friendly.  You really need to check this place out if you have never been.


I went for the grilled cheese with Provolone and Swiss.  It was delicious!!  It had this cherry butter spread on it the elevated it from a regular grilled cheese to gourmet.  The cranberry and walnut bread was scrumptious as well.  With the sandwich I get a free side, so I went with the cheesy potatoes.  It was a very good and filling meal.


I also ordered an iced Raspberry Chai Latte.  It was very good. The chai itself may have been a mix, because I did need to keep stirring it because there were granules.  But that did not detract from the taste.  I would get it again.  I liked the addition of the raspberry to the iced chai. 
They have lots of fun drinks to try, see below.


I sat inside, but I did sneak outside to snap a photo.  I had several people look at me strangely...but I figured I would never see them again, lol.



It's such a adorable little place.  Ahhh, maybe someday I will have a place like this....


I also went to Heini's Cheese while I was in the area.  Really about the only time I go there is when I have friends visiting, but I was close so I picked up some cheese.  Normally, they have samples out of their cheese and you can try them all.  But, since COVID there were no samples out.  

I like their Swiss & Rye, Smoked horseradish, smoked Mozzarella, and their Onion Cheeses.  I love to do cheese on crackers for my super in the evening.  I will have cheese for weeks now!  They also have these great bagged cheese crisps!!  Look for Bunker Hill Cheese Crisp- https://bunkerhillcheese.com/crunchycheesecrisps/

Beacon Cafe, Iced White Peach Tea, Winesburg, OH





This is my second time at the Beacon Cafe.  I was out and about on my day off and decided to have an iced tea for the ride home. #WednesdayWanderings

I did their Iced White Peach Tea.  The tea base is Lipton, but then they add a flavored syrup to it.  It was very tasty. 


They have lots of seating at the Beacon.


Quaint cafe with super friendly staff.  I recommend it for bite to eat or a drink on the go.


The parking is in the back of the cafe.  It is a really nice, clear cafe.


The cafe backs up to a cute park that you could go to with your kids too.


Just watch for buggies when you are driving around town.
