Coldwater Cafe, located in downtown Tipp City, Ohio
The Coldwater Cafe is a restaurant housed in a former bank building in the heart of downtown Tipp City. The restaurant 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 things 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.
The name “Coldwater Cafe” came from the nickname of owner Betty Peachey’s late father “Coldwater Joe” Peachey, who came from a small valley in Pennsylvania. In the front of the home where he was reared ran a creek and this area became known as Coldwater.
When the Cafe opened in February of 1994, it was a risk that offered success or failure. Family and close friends helped to make the dream a reality.
Although we are now at our new location, the ambience remains. Many things from our old location made the move, including the egg in the wall. Other favorites are the hostess stand, which Betty purchased in Provence, France and had shipped here. Original oil paintings by friends Ann Luken and Richard Mantia add to the ambiance. And, the resident pig continues to proudly display our daily delectable desserts.
