My family and I recently had the privilege of traveling to Butler County and trying out some of the best that they have to offer. We were able to try out three different food places and thoroughly enjoyed our time and experience at each one!
The first place that we went was NorthStar Cafe, located at the heart of the Liberty Center in Liberty Township, Ohio. Northstar Cafe is extremely conscious of the impact that our food choices make on our bodies and our environment. They use only locally grown, organic, and artisan-produced foods at each of their restaurants. Not only is the inside of the restaurant beautiful, but the food that comes out from the kitchen is delicious and healthy! My entire family enjoyed our lunch at Northstar! I actually ordered a vegan veggie burger even though I’m not vegan. It was delicious! And that’s saying a lot coming from someone who isn’t vegan!
How cute is this little corner? Doesn’t it make you want to cozy up with a warm cup of tea and just people watch or read a good book?

For dinner, we headed to Bagger Dave’s. Bagger Dave’s is a casual burger joint that is the perfect family atmosphere (with a bar for the adults!). The menu features salads, burgers, soups and more burgers! But my three-year-old would argue that the absolute best part of Bagger Dave’s is the TRAIN! There is a train that runs around the top of the restaurant and my kids LOVED it!
The last and final food stop that we did was actually a series of several stops! Have you ever heard of the Butler County Donut Trail? I had never heard of it, either, but my family got to experience it and we LOVED it. The Donut Trail is a set of 10 “Mom and Pop” donut shops in Butler County. Each one features a unique #donuttrail sign and a stamp in the passport! Once all 10 donut shops have been found and visited, you can send your passport to the Butler County Visitors Bureau and receive a free t-shirt! Honestly, it is quite a bit of driving, and I recommend doing it over 2+ days. Each donut shop is unique and has their own specialty donuts. And…who doesn’t love donuts?!?
We felt like we found three of the best family-friendly food stops in Butler County! And yet, there so much more that we could have discovered and eaten!
