Catch Of The Month (April) - Indulgence Cafe

by Sherrie Toth

As  a young girl, Patricia George was taught to bake. Although she spent many years as a server, she would bake for friends and family on the side.  But owning her own business was always a strong desire.


With some faith and prayer, she and her husband Daniel found an empty spot-- the perfect place to put their dreams into action.  “We knew this was the place,” Patricia said. And what the community knows as Indulgence Cafe was born.


“Indulgence Cafe is a place for people to be happy, to be together, and to enjoy all the good things we have to offer. Whatever I feel like baking for the day, that’s what I do,” Said Patricia.  “I don’t have the same routine; it’s always changing.”


We have stopped in several times and let me tell you, they certainly do have a lot to offer. I personally tried the peach muffin. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It had the look of a muffin but it had the texture of the best and most moist cake you have ever had! The outside was crystallized sweet goodness! Whatever your desire is, you’ll likely be more than fulfilled. Indulgence serves anything from a simple cupcake to gorgeous cinnamon rolls.  You can also enjoy a scoop or two of the amazing and local Velvet Ice Cream, a cold beverage like a frappe or a traditional cup of fresh coffee. My favorite is the Mocha Latte with just a touch of mocha. Yes, they serve it up your way!

Currently, Indulgence is looking to get local artists to display their artwork and greeting cards.  Comfy seating is also on the list! If you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday, the cafe also hosts open mic nights where customers can listen to the sounds of the locals while sipping on coffee or enjoying whatever Patricia has baked for the day. For more details about events and pictures of their stunningly beautiful offerings, visit their Facebook page here

One of the George’s favorite things about owning their own bakery is seeing the smiles of customers who enjoy their baked goods.  The couple is personable to each guest who comes in. “We love Apple Valley,” they said.  “We couldn’t be happier.” The George’s put their heart into everything. Joe, myself and many others can attest to that!! Stop in and give it a try! You wont be sorry one bit!

You can find Indulgence Cafe in the same plaza we are located in. They are just outside of Apple Valley lake in the white plaza.

Catch of the Month (Feb) - Howard Hilton

by Sherrie Toth


Howard Hilton


If you’re looking for a fun place to relax and enjoy the best burger around on a  pretzel bun, some delicious fries, or a beer, look no further than Joe and Sherrie's February local Catch Of The Month, the Howard Hilton. " The Hilton" is located at 23379 Coshocton Rd. I'm telling you, this little hidden gem will surely exceed your expectations. Its only a mile or so just east of Apple Valley Lake.

Back in 2010, Larry and Chris Wolford received an offer to lease “Hut’s Place” -- an offer they could not pass up.  Up until that point, Larry had always wanted to own a bar/restaurant, so when this opportunity came, he jumped on it. Life took a few twists and turns and what started as a leasing opportunity with partners ended up as a chance to purchase the place outright and with that came the new name the “Howard Hilton.”  As of August 2017, Larry has been the sole owner and he and his wife are enjoying serving up food and drinks to the regulars and those who are just passing through.


People can easily find the Howard Hilton, but they find it hard to leave.  And one contributing factor to that is the fact customers find it a comfortable place with a great atmosphere.  The bar is “nothing fancy,” according to the owners but people just love the place, the warm friendly people and the amazing food.  When asked what their secret is, Chris said, “Respect,”  Oh, and awesome burgers!  Speaking of “awesome burgers,” they are always fresh and never frozen.  Pair that with some of their fresh-cut fries and you would have to force us to leave too!  Other popular items on the menu include the Cod, fried bologna served on the famous Pretzel Bun and the “Fish Bowl” drinks.  The owners truly do take pride in their food and drinks.  But food and drinks is not the only thing that sets the Howard Hilton apart.  Customers also have the opportunity to participate in the ever popular “Queen of Hearts” drawing (which reached $173,000 last August) and an annual Spring Golf outing the third Sunday in July.


Apart from the amazing menu, Chris and Larry added a T-Bar, High Top Tables, two concrete patios and seven flat screen TVs-- all to ensure the customers “enjoy their time at the Howard Hilton.”  Admittedly, the couple says their favorite service to provide their customers is simply “making sure they are happy.”  


Joe and I just personally can’t say enough about this place. The service is always on point and the food always exceeds our expectations. We love to belly up to the bar and enjoy Taco Tuesdays and other evenings that we slip in for some great conversation, perfect service and the BEST burgers in town. Larry and Chris will go out of their way to say hello and check on us as well as their other guests. The staff is talented at what they do, fun and take good care of their patrons.

** Don't forget to seek out Marie and ask her what her tap of the month is or what it's going to be next!

Catch Of The Month - Lakeside Barber and Shave Parlor

by Sherrie Toth

  Lakeside Barber and Shave Parlor


 In 2014, Apple Valley residents Jason and Jamie Huffman had a vision-- a vision that they wanted to make a reality.  This vision became Lakeside Barber and Shave Parlor-- something the couple said seemed like a need for Apple Valley.  “We wanted to be Apple Valley’s best kept secret, a destination shop for Knox County, and a hometown shop for Howard and Apple Valley.”  

    When asked what makes their shop stand out from other shops that specialize in some of the same services, Jason said, “We throw time out the window.  We step BACK in time.” He goes on to say that, “we are about creating the experience, not just the cut.


 The Huffman’s have quite the resume, too. They may be new to the barbershop field, but they are no strangers to managing, owning, and coaching. Between the two of them, they have owned restaurants, a commercial cleaning company, they’ve  managed businesses and Jason currently coaches third and fourth grade girls’ basketball for East Knox.


When asked how easy it was running a business with his wife, Jason laughed and said, “easier than running our home!”  Combined, the couple has 10 kids: three each and four adopted-- nine being girls. “But Jamie is great,” said Jason. “ I met her at school. Her passion to be a full service barber is amazing.  People always say we make a great team.”

Their vision isn’t done yet.  The couple has hopes and goals for 2018 and beyond.  “We are hiring in 2018.  We want a second location somewhere in Knox County.  A small spot with several barbers. We would also like to one day see the entire Pier Plaza be really cool with all kinds of great service type  businesses. We are also anxiously awaiting more space in our unit to add more services to our business.”



We HIGHLY recommend stopping in! Grab a soda, beer or water from the fridge and relax. Prepare to be pampered and get to know the Huffman's and their loyal clients. You are definitely made to feel special here! You wont regret the service or experience! 




Lakeside Barber and Shave Parlor is located at 21735 Plank Rd. in Howard! Behind the new Town Center.

As we mentioned in our recent Holiday Blog post, this time of year is synonymous with family and food.  It’s a nice time of conversation and getting back to our roots and enjoying the simple things.  Yes, it’s a season for hustle and bustle, but it’s a different kind of hustle and bustle-- it’s just the holidays!

Spring is around the corner and that means we can watch that beautiful Apple Valley Lake fill up and dream of the beauty of Summer.  


One of the perks of cruising Apple Valley lake during the warmer months is looking at all the gorgeous homes that outline its perimeter.  Knowing that folks are scanning your backyard gives you all the more reason to spruce it up and give it that “curb appeal” so-to-speak.  Besides Pinterest and all those other fantastic information- spewing websites, one of the best places to visit is one of Ohio’s Home and Garden shows.  Here, at these shows, you will find ways to make your home look its best. You might also be interested in innovative things such as green technology to enhance the efficiency of your Lake Home.
