One of my favorite things about Indiana is that the seasons change. Â Leaves turn bright shades of orange, red and yellow in the fall; white snow covers the ground in the winter; and the grass turns a vibrant shade of green in the spring. Â While I love the changing seasons, I do miss the fun outdoor concerts, farmers markets, park visits of spring, summer and fall. Â So, when it gets too cold to do those fun outdoor activities- I eat! Â Every week this winter I will highlight one of my favoriteÂ Hamilton County, Indiana restaurants. Â As a foodie (my definition of foodie is simply someone who loves to eat), I will happily talk about the small diners, the â€œhole in the wallâ€? eateries, the fancy French bistros, the big restaurants and more. Â NOW, onto the good stuff â€“ enjoy, and feel free to share your own favorite Hamilton County, Indiana dining spots!

The atmosphere is fun, yet relaxing, and they have an impeccable wait staff.Â Their menu is not extensive, but they do offer a delicious array of scones, soups, salads, small sandwiches, cookies and tea.Â Sweet tea, hot tea, decaf tea, green tea â€“ you name the tea â€“ I bet they serve it (and in a cute little tea cup too).

Before heading home, take some time to stroll through their gift shop â€“ the shop is filled with vintage jewelry, clothing, antique glassware, tea sets, and unique paintings. The Ruby Pear is open for lunch and tea - Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.Â Private Tea Parties (perfect for baby or bridal showers) can be scheduled for other times as well.
