About Us

Our Story

To say that V’s Café on 7th was opened on a whim would certainly not be accurate. In fact, it was a project over 2 years in the making. When we were approached by the representatives of The Aronoff Center to open a restaurant in what was formerly the Center Stage Room, it was more of a passing thought than a definite certainty. As we discussed the possibilities though, it became pretty evident that many goals could be accomplished. The representatives of the Aronoff were looking for a way to attract additional patrons to the center and to the Weston Art Gallery. Additionally they were looking to provide a unique dining alternative to their guests and staff. We, at Vonderhaar’s, were looking for a way to increase our presence in the ever growing downtown market and better serve our downtown clientele. Once the decision was made to do this, in essence it was a win/win possibility that then took 18 months to make happen.

As we approached the operational model for V’s Café on 7th,  one thing we knew for certain is that we wanted to be unique to the downtown marketplace; not just another sandwich shop.

At V’s Café on 7th we feature all natural meats, Ohio Amish cheeses, locally baked breads and as many locally sourced products as possible. We also use eco-friendly disposables and try to be as environmentally aware as possible.

Our menu is a bit eclectic by design. We have created some items that feature unique flavors and pairings. Feel free to try the way have recommended it, or customize it to your liking.
