Food Hussy Explores Milford, OH!

This giveaway is a partnership with Nakturnal. All opinions are my own.

We moved to Milford about a year and a half ago and I have loved every minute of it! As a food blogger I get to explore and try new restaurants all the time - so this weekend I decided to check out some new and some favorites in my town... 

But next weekend I'm going to be heading to Dayton - so for those of you living in Dayton, OH - I need your help! Where should I go?!

 You can't have a food stop in Milford without talking about Holtman's Donuts! This location is "technically" Loveland but I consider it Milford - it's the Milford exit - so that's it in my head. It's tiny but mighty!

There's not a bad donut to be had but if you haven't had Holtman's (where have you been?!) - I would recommend going simple. Above is a Red Velvet Cake Donut - I've had yeast and cake - they're all amazing. Ask if they have anything warm. If they do - whatever it is - get that! If not - go for something simple and just enjoy. This donut was a little underdone but OMG it literally MELTED in my mouth. And I love that they get even their cake donuts super crispy so they're crunchy and sweet perfection.

Then I headed to the far end of downtown Milford and decided to work my way North. My first stop was One Main Gallery. They have a flea market on most Saturdays - where I found this guy! I wouldn't say it's like "flea market" prices - but they do have some interesting finds.

Next stop - May Cafe. It's a cute little place that has a couple of tables outside, a handful of tables inside and then a few tables outback on a patio area. It's a very cute cafe that serves breakfast and lunch with sandwiches, salads, coffee and gelato.

I got their daily special which was a Salmon salad with arugula, goat cheese, beets, avocado, nuts and grilled salmon - all with a balsamic vinaigrette ($11.95). This salad was DELICIOUS! The salmon was warm and the salad was full of goodies - I mean when you tell me it's got goat cheese - I'm pretty much in it to win it. I really liked May Cafe and will definitely be back.

Next up - a little more shopping - and a stop into Jackson Whitacre. They refer to themselves as a unique retail shop, bringing you homemade home furnishing and nursery pieces, along with trendy apparel and decor. 

They have some cute stuff - the apparel is all for skinnies - but their home decor and jewelry are very nice. Not a place I would shop every day - but I'd never been before. I think it would be nice if I was looking for a gift for someone.

My last stop for the day had to involve chocolate so I stopped at Tickled Sweet - which I've been to once before. They have chocolate dipped everything (oreos, rice krispy treats, twinkies), fudge of all kinds, candy from our youth and about a million other things. This is a candy shop for everyone!

I met Bambi - the owner- and she showed me some chocolates that she was making. The rectangles are caramel dipped in chocolate and then topped with sea salt. Noooooooo. I wasn't drooling at all! I went home with some white chocolate oreos for me and some milk chocolate rice krispies and marshmallows for hubby. 

I had a great time exploring Old Milford! I had some new stops and some old favorites - it's great to get out and explore and try some new things.

And now - I've got some fun for you! You can get a $25 gift certificate to Holtman's Donuts to try it for yourself! You won't have a hard time using that one up! Good luck!

We're going to have fun with this one - this is all about Cincinnati - but next weekend - I'm heading to Dayton?! What places like these would you recommend? What have you explored while living in Dayton?
