Austin and I took a much needed weekend getaway and went to Granville, Ohio. We had a wonderful time and were able to relax and enjoy some quality time together away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Being the foodies that we are, no getaway weekend would be complete without some great food. Food is a must when on a road trip! Always! We wanted to share with you some of the Granville restaurants that we visited.
We both were in a pizza mood so we decided to have dinner at Donato’s Pizza. For me it was the beloved, can-never-go-wrong-with pepperoni pizza. Pepperoni pizza is by far my very favorite. Donato’s Pizza is known for their edge to edge ingredients and this pepperoni pizza had the pepperonis piled edge to edge. Way to go Donato’s! It was excellent and pure perfection!
Austin decided on Donato’s Bourbon BBQ Bacon Pizza. The Bourbon BBQ Bacon Pizza is only available at a few select locations in central Ohio. The Granville Donato’s Pizza is one place where you can order this menu item. Austin was in love with this pizza and said that it is in the top five pizza places for him. If you know Austin you know what an honor this is. He is a pizza fiend and will go to the ends of the earth, or at least other states, for awesome pizza.
No meal is complete without dessert. Donato’s Pizza did not disappoint here either. We had the Cinnamon Bread and Cheryl’s Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies. The Cinnamon Bread came loaded with cinnamon (a personal favorite of mine) and icing. So yummy! The Chocolate Chunk Cookies were loaded with big chunks of melted chocolate and were absolute heaven! If you are looking for some great Granville restaurants definitely add Donato’s Pizza to your list.
This particular Donato’s Pizza location was really cool. It was a two-story building that housed a full bar and had that old factory feel to it. The address of this Donato’s Pizza is 116 E Broadway, Granville, Ohio 43023. You really do need to check this place out!
Bailey’s Drive Inn Donuts
Another don’t miss place on our Granville restaurants list was Bailey’s Drive Inn Donuts. Bailey’s Drive Inn Donuts are home to the extra large donut hole. By extra large we mean really big. 🙂
Bailey’s Drive Inn Donuts does not have a brick and mortar location, but delivers their goodness to different locations in the area. At any given time you may find Cinnamon Sugar, Sugar, Chocolate Cake, Glazed, Mocha, Blueberry, Apple Cider or Pumpkin flavors being delivered.
Cinnamon Sugar donut holes were on the menu for the day. Being a donut connoisseur that I am, I was beyond excited to give these donut holes a try. I had been hearing so much about them and couldn’t wait to see if they held up to all the hype. I am pleased to announce that they were exceptional! They are a cake donut and are super moist. They were bursting with the most amazing cinnamon and sugar flavor. Definitely a will-get-again donut hole!
They come in this really cute bag and you can just drop in a grab a bag or, in the case of the location we got ours at, eat them on site.
River Road Coffeehouse
We got our donut holes at River Road Coffeehouse. How perfect is this? Donuts and amazing coffee! Doesn’t get much better than this. Austin is a coffee addict, so he was thrilled to visit this coffee house. As Mom always says, no road trip is complete without a daily stop at a new coffee house. 🙂
Coffee shops are definitely (in our mind) considered a restaurant in today’s day and age, so this just had to be included on our Granville restaurants list! Austin ordered the River Road Mocha and said it delivered on taste and creaminess. He said he would definitely order it again!
The atmosphere at River Road Coffeehouse is awesome. It is super cozy and there is plenty of seating. Another nice thing is that there are several different rooms and not just one big one. This is nice for meetings or group settings.
We had a really nice time relaxing here enjoying coffee (for Austin) and donut holes. River Road Coffeehouse is located at 935 River Road, Granville, Ohio 43023.
Although this was a very short trip and we did not get a chance to visit several Granville restaurants, we still wanted to share with you the ones we visited. Also, make sure to check out the charming B&B we stayed at during our getaway: Orchard House Bed & Breakfast.
These are a few of our top picks for our weekend getaway food stops. We hope you get the chance to visit Granville, Ohio sometime soon.
Have a great day!
