On Mondays, Christian Corner Cafe serves pulled pork and cole slaw. Thursdays, it's meatloaf with mashed potatoes. And on Sundays, the Christian-oriented eatery closes up shop. But any other day of the week, customers can pop into the cozy café for sandwiches, coffee, a full breakfast menu, and baked goods including cakes and muffins. Though all are welcome, this food and drink is served in a Christian-oriented environment, with Bibles and scripture on every table. Christian Corner Cafe is also available to cater.
The personable baristas at 5 Bean Coffee handcraft a caffeine-laden menu of hot, iced, and frozen beverages, crafted using locally roasted Crimson Cup coffee. Gradually stoke sleepwalking brains with a cup of freshly brewed joe ($1.60–$1.95) or restart frozen-flavor sensors by upgrading to a 5 Bean mocha ($3.10–$4.05), or vanilla latte ($2.90–$3.85). A chilly frozen-chai latte puts the freeze on sass-talking tongues ($3.60–$4) and a fruit smoothie helps fulfill the day’s un-meat requirements with a creamy sippable concoction ($3.80–$4.30).
After working at several of central Ohio's premier bakeries, Bryan Tyler decided that if he had his own, he would always prize high-quality ingredients over speed or corner-cutting for the sake of expansion. So, he did just that. At Tyler's Pizzeria & Bakery, he curates ingredients grown without the use of GMOs, herbicides, or pesticides from local purveyors such as Millersburg's Stutzman Farms and Wooster's Hartzler Family Dairy. In fact, come summer and fall, he even grows his own veggies and herbs in raised gardens outside the bakery without the help of the Jolly Green Giant.
These ingredients form the building blocks for a diverse menu of baked goods. In the morning, customers line up for cheese danishes and pumpkin turnovers; by afternoon, they're clamoring for pepperoni rolls and cornish pastys.
Bryan's kitchen is also home to a wood-burning oven, in which he prepares specialty pizzas. These, too, boast quality ingredients?hand-grated cheese, housemade tomato sauce, and organic-flour dough. Like the rest of his menu, the pies are both savory and sweet?the Oktoberfeast is topped with ham and sauerkraut and Grannie's cranapple dessert pizza is built upon cinnamon-roll filling.
It'd be perfectly possible to visit Rule 3 every day for a week and never repeat the same activity. A 14-lane bowling alley sits at the core of this entertainment emporium, right next to a scaled-down bowling area with smaller balls and shorter lanes for kids. But bowling is just the beginning at Rule 3. The arcade here is an 8-bit dream come true, hosting no fewer than seven Pac-Man machines.
A half-acre backyard area extends the good times outdoors, with sand-volleyball courts, picnic tables, corn hole, and live music throughout the summer. Of course, all these activities require energy, which is why Rule 3 dishes out all-natural burgers and homemade pizzas..

Recently featured on the Food Network, Das KaffeeHaüs von Frau Burkhart's pastry chef bakes German confections to complement italian coffee. Pressed from air-roasted beans that have never touched metal, daily blends of Danesi drip coffee thrill the senses with a tonic as dark and heady as a Sherlock Holmes tale. The glass case showcases trays of cream puffs spilling clouds of filling, crisp strudel wrapping gooey jam, and ranks of bavarian donuts distinguishing themselves with caps of powdered sugar and chocolate. Baristas promote a lively, social atmosphere by hosting events, such as quarterly techno dance parties and nights when folks from Sunny Side Childcare entertain kids so parents may relive their adolescence by babysitting someone else's offspring.
