Local Restaurants

Many of our out of town guests love visiting Yoga on High for the great workshops AND the neighborhood restaurants!

Within walking distance you can find world-famous ice cream, delicious vegetarian treats, organic fare, a farmers’ market and pretty much any ethnic delight you might be craving. And if you have a car, you’ll be able to venture to Bexley, Grandview and the Clintonville/ OSU area for even more great dining delights!
