Restaurant of the Week

By Audrey Stratton | Local Happenings

Sitting on Market Street, is a little cafe named the “Market Street Cafe”. They are most definitely a local favorite. Owned by Mary Rase and Susan and Paul O’Neill, they have created a casual dining place where you can always meet friends for lunch!


They started the business after another coffee shop had closed. Wanting to continue to offer some of Jesse’s Java’s favorites, they kept that tradition alive, while also developing a few of their own favorites!


Mary’s favorite menu item is the Cafe Grilled Cheese! Susan’s favorite is The Cobb Salad or the Turkey Crunch wrap, while Paul enjoys the Raspberry Romaine Salad and the California Turkey Panini.

At Market Street Cafe, they love hiring students from Shawnee State University! They are very proud of all the graduates that they have been able to help with a job during college.


During COVID, they have been affected, just like many other restaurants in Scioto County during this time. When asked what the local support meant to them they said, “We are blessed to have the community support during this trying time! Our regulars are coming for take out and are concerned about our safety! We are honored to serve lots of food to the frontline workers and are happy to provide them with healthy foods!! We want to thank all the support and concern that the community has given us! We can’t wait to have the dining room full and we are running around taking care of everybody! We will be patient and keep everybody safe until then!”
