I had been wanting to try this restaurant for a quite a while and finally got the chance to with my boyfriend. We made reservations and we were warmly greeted and walked to our table. We were asked if it was our first time and they made sure to make it memorable. We got the lobster crab cakes to start... More

We have been to the Coldwater Cafe several times as it is not far from our home. NEVER have we been disappointed. The food is excellent--perfectly prepared to your wants and pleasantly presented; the wait staff is friendly, timely, knowledgeable and eager to please. Never have we felt rushed so the table could be turned. Always a pleasant experience. Lunch... More

My husband and I love to visit this quaint little gem when passing through Tipp City. The salmon salad, dessert, wine, and bread make for a wonderful lunch!

My wife and I were looking for a quaint little Ohio town to stay in on our way west and found Tipp City. The top recommended restaurant was Coldwater Cafe. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is very French Country Chic; very romantic. We had a quaint little tavern-like booth up front that was very warm, comfortable and private. The... More

My cousin made reservations here for the 10 of us visiting Piqua, Ohio for a family reunion and it was a GRAND dinner on our last night. LOVED the building, ambiance, servers, and food. We may have been a little raucous but we had a GREAT time and all was enhanced by the Coldwater Cafe. IT was the perfect ending... More

The scallops also great sear, nice size plate. The endive salad was one of the best ever. Lastly the bread pudding was outstanding, light, fantastic sauce and perfectly prepared. Don,... More

We drove to Tipp City to have a late lunch there. The restaurant is in an old bank which features the vault and all. Has been restored to a lovely replica of a bygone era. The food was awesome. I had quiche and fruit which was much in demand that day. Another in our party had a ciabatta sandwich which... More

We had a wedding in the area so needed a place for our family to have a nice meal. This restaurant was able to handle our large group and did a nice job handling us. The food was excellent and the service was even better. Everyone enjoyed the evening and had a wonderful meal.

We had a reservation, but had to wait quite awhile for a table. The Hostess was not particularly happy to see us, and now that I think about it, neither was the woman who took the reservation on the phone. Maybe it was the same person. We were seated in an awkward space that was very busy with staff; not... More
