St. Patty's Day is a great excuse to give your local pubs and bars some business. Here are the places in Beavercreek to stop by.

You don't have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick's Day near Beavercreek homes for sale.

    Strictly speaking, Elé Cake Co. is a wine bar and bistro, but it also has a fine selection of baked goods to tempt you after you've had your meal. Go for Tequila Lime Chicken Sliders for an appetizer, then Bibb Lettuce and Pear Salad with an entree like Brown Butter Sea Scallops. Don't forget to order a nice wine or cocktail.

Not saying consumption of the Coffee Hub's conscientiously crafted vegan and gluten-free baked goods will necessarily lead to weight loss, but you can be sure of getting some great-tasting treats without the guilt and some of the ingredients that might not agree with you when you sample Coffee Hub's cookies, brownies, donuts, cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, and coffee cake. Homemade quiche and bagels are also on the menu.
