New Philadelphia, Ohio

As I've mentioned before, I spend a fair amount of time in New Philadelphia, Ohio. New Philadelphia is located 100 miles from my home in Pittsburgh along I-77 along the Tuscarawas River. It was founded in 1804 by John Knisely (who's he -- the man who founded New Philadelphia of course!). It was where John Glenn learned to fly at Harry Clever field and where Ohio State footbal coaching legend Woody Hayes coached the Quakers, the local high school.

My HQ in in New Philadelphia is The Daily Grind, a comfortable, upscale, urban feeling coffee shop in the quaint downtown across from the Quaker discount movie theater. Located is a former bakery and adjacent building, the atmosphere inside includes an old fashioned lunch counter, an antique deli-display, and comfortable seating from couch to kitchen table to cafe table await. With a friendly staff, an extensive menu of fresh and healthy sandwiches, (for example, the Old Man -- Roast Beef, Provolone, Onion, Lettuce and Tomato on Focacia Bread), great caramel pecan cookies, and a tremendous variety of coffees there is plenty to satisfy the stomach. To top it all off there's free wi-fi internet -- making it my mid-day refuge to catch up on work and relax.

The Daily Grind Cafe is located at 153 West High Avenue, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.
