Great place for coffee and gathering with friends – The Spot on Main – in downtown Jackson, Ohio. The Spot on Main serves coffee and espresso-based drinks with beans sourced from Silverbridge Coffee Company, a local roaster and milk products from Snowville Creamery, a local dairy. Fresh pastries and desserts are available all day. You can also grab a fresh salad, soup, or sandwich all day long. Enjoy outdoor seating with a view of the historic Jackson Apple Tower. Check out our Facebook page for daily specials.
Want a meal like grandma used to make? Check out Katy's Kitchen & Corner Cafe. Owner Sela Fannin, makes most everything from scratch from the daily specials to the delectable pies. Try a milkshake with hand-dipped ice cream and a Jackson County Veal (pork tenderloin for you non-locals) which are among the best in the county.
We set out to create a casual joint where someone in a suit can sit beside someone in shorts and both will feel at home.
For our highly regarded BBQ, we borrow from all the traditional areas in The South; Memphis, St. Louis, Texas, and the Carolinas to create our own style, a style that has locals stopping back in each weekend and several repeat customers that drive 40 miles just to eat our 'que.
Come hang out on our casual patio and try out the porch swing. And don't forget to check out our Thursday night LIVE music porch sessions.
Quaint is the only way to describe this local favorite. Stop in for a lunch of cucumber sandwiches, the soup of the day and a raspberry iced tea or if you prefer your tea hot you can choose from the large variety of teas available and pair it with a homemade scone topped with clotted cream. Then shop for the perfect gift in our gift boutique. Have a little girl? Schedule a private tea party for her birthday celebration.
