Mansfield + Richland County
Mansfield and Richland County are full of great discoveries, from small towns to historic sites to outdoor activities. We've spent time on the Mansfield Wine & Ale Trail, which takes you to local breweries and wineries.
Food & Coffee
Brumby's Coffee: spacious coffee shop in Bellville that transitions to a pizza shop later in the day
Hudson & Essex: excellent fine dining in the old Hudson & Essex car dealership in Mansfield. Serves lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, and is home to Cypress Hill Winery downstairs.
Relax, It's Just Coffee: solid and spacious coffee shop in downtown Mansfield
Wishmaker House Bed & Breakfast: see it under wineries, too. This Bellville B&B has a full-service restaurant, too, with some of the best cheesecake we've tasted.
Wine & Beer
Wine & Ale Trail: regional trail that takes you to 10 wineries and breweries throughout Richland County
1285 Winery: winery in The Blueberry Patch, serving a wide variety of wines, plus wood-fired pizzas and other snacks on their spacious patio
Cypress Hill Winery: house winery for Hudson & Essex restaurant in Mansfield, located in a cozy downstairs space
The Happy Grape and Laxton Hollow Brewing Works: wine bar and bistro in Lexington with a solid bourbon selection, too. Laxton Hollow is decorated like a cozy English pub, and is Ohio's only real cask ale brewery, where beers are made in small batches and served uncarbonated from casks.
