A 38 seat restaurant hidden away in a quaint Ohio village surrounded by fertile land and family farms, The Old Arcana serves freshly prepared food from scratch in a charming, historic environment.

At The Old Arcana, we believe in food that nourishes the body and the soul. Our food is real. From scratch. Our recipes have Midwestern roots and are infused with New American passion.

We care about the quality of our food and we pay particular attention to its preparation. Everything is made in house. We make time to find the right ingredients from the fields and farms that surround us, using local partners whenever possible. As a result, our menus and the fresh produce we offer change regularly to suit the seasons. Daily specials utilize seasonal ingredients and are sometimes only available for a short period of time. To us, the most important thing is that the ingredients we use to prepare our food are real, whole, and minimally processed.

We serve our guests in the dining room Wednesday – Saturday from 9AM-2PM and Sunday from 10AM-2PM. Join us Friday & Saturday evenings from 5PM-8PM for a unique, bistro style dinner. We also offer full catering services for private and business events at our location or yours, as well as catering trays, boxed lunches, and special order baked goods daily.
