Red Onion Cafe, Monroe, OH

We've passed it many times, especially since our daughter bought a home in Monroe seven or eight years ago, but we had never dined at the Red Onion Cafe on Main Street in Monroe, Ohio...until last Friday.
The lovely Robin and I were on our way to an old haunt of ours east of there, and so we met at the Red Onion after we both finished our work day.
We ordered the Gorgonzola Crusted Kettle Chips appetizer, which was delicious and delightful, a unique blend of flavors and textures.  
Robin's main course was the crab cakes (above), a specialty of the house, which were nicely presented and satisfying. I went for one of the specials of the day, the crab-stuffed trout on a bed of rice, which was disappointingly bland.
If we return, it will definitely be for the Gorgonzola Crusted Kettle Chips--and the friendly and efficient service--but we would probably both try a different entree.

The Red Onion Cafe is located at 214 S. Main Street in Monroe, just a couple blocks south of Rt. 63.
