What’s a Rich Text element?



The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

776 N Main St, Springboro, OH 45066 | | +1 937-514-7755

Some of the favorites are the fish sandwich, the grilled chicken, and the french onion soup. For those of you who are on a diet and are tired of eating plain chicken salad, the lean bowls are under 750 calories and are prepared with fresh vegetables and proteins. The Grecian Lean Bowl (which is gluten-free) is a blend of quinoa and brown rice with shredded cabbage, Romaine lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, Kalamata olives, pepperoncini peppers, cucumbers, and red onion with Greek vinaigrette. 

What a great place to dine with a small group of friends. The service was amazing of course. The ambiance was "good" as well. We ordered the chicken quesadilla and it was prepared to perfection. Yelp Review.

China Cottage

Voted as the Best Chinese Restaurant in Dayton

Marketplace at Settlers Walk 784 N Main St, Springboro, OH 45066 | +1 937-748-8866 |

This Chinese restaurant established in 1987 is a great option for dining in a warm and festive atmosphere. This place is particularly well known for its award-winning Cottage Chicken, Sizzling Steak, and Rock Salt Prawn. The variety of Chinese dishes are prepared with fresh and high-quality ingredients in a live exhibition kitchen. It's quite a spectacle! The Chinese New Year celebrations have been very festive and memorable, so that is a really good time to visit China Cottage and try its special menu for the occasion. The seafood chowder soup, the beef stew with bok choy, and the Stir-fried rice noodle with chicken, pork, or beef are some of the favorites. 

Catering and banquets are available upon request, as well as large party carry-out.

Best Chinese food in town. The decor is upscale, service is always attentive. Probably done more take out than dining in, portions are generous, always packaged well, and they send plenty of condiments. Yelp Review.

Donatos Pizza

Monster pizzas and a glass of wine

764 Gardner Rd, Springboro, OH 45066 | +1 937-748-8686 |

The legendary monster pizzas are a great option for your cheat day or for catering if you are having a small reunion with friends or family. There are also salads and appetizers available to complement your pizza and to balance out the carbs. The staff is very friendly, and it is very easy to order online to take out. Make sure to try some of the red or white wines, they have a wide variety of them, and they are worth trying. 

It's good pizza, and the pepperoni they use is some of the best. My favorite is the Founders Favorite, although they have lots of specialty pizza options. Also had some breadsticks, which were pretty good. Yelp Review 

Dickey's Barbecue Pit

The Legacy of a Veteran who Loved Barbeque

752 Gardner Rd, Springboro, OH 45066 +1 937-550-4826

In 1941, a World War II veteran opened the first Dickey's restaurant in Dallas, Texas. Inspired by the good quality, low-smoked authentic barbeque, the family-operated business expanded to several cities in the United States to tell Dickey's story. 

The diverse menu of this place will encourage you to visit over and over. Sandwiches, pasta, barbeque, and chicken tenders are some of the many dining options at Dickey's. Some of the vegetarian options include mac & cheese, potato salad, and creamed spinach. Catering for any type of event is available for you, even for office meetings. You can get a quote before you decide what you want to order. A great option is the box lunch that can come with a sandwich or a salad, a cookie, and chips. 

All the meat was super tender and my 2-year-old niece loved the turkey and she's a picky eater. I really loved the pulled pork. Next time I can't wait to try the baked potato casserole. Yelp Review.

Waffle House

Waffles you can have any day, at any time.

885 W Central Ave, Springboro, OH 45066 | +1 937-746-3972 |

The feeling of waking up on a Sunday morning without the sound of an alarm is very satisfying. You've had enough sleep, you have some time to catch up on grocery shopping, errands, and social media gossip. But before that, you need to wake up. Empower yourself with a warm coffee and some freshly made crunchy waffles from the Waffle House. The chocolate chip or peanut butter flavored waffles are some of the best waffles you will ever try. 

If you are a waffle lover, check out the Waffle House shop where you can find accessories, apparel, face masks, cups, and mugs, all related to the Waffle House experience. Eggs, omelets, hashbrowns, and sandwiches are also an option if you are not a waffle fan or if you want to try something different. The restaurant is open 24 hours so you can have a waffle any day at any time. Give yourself a break from the kitchen and have a nice breakfast at this very well-known place in Springboro, Ohio! 

My recommendation is always the all star special. You get a little bit of everything with it. Whatever you do, make sure to get a side some crunchy hash browns and add all the fixens to them, too. I love Waffle House hash browns! This location filled me with hash brown joy. Yelp Review.

Heather's Coffee & Cafe

Where friends become family

505 S Main St, Springboro, OH 45066 | +1 937-550-9511 |

In Downtown Springboro, this cozy place with a patio offers a full bar and a variety of freshly made dishes. Sometimes we just need a break from our routine and visit a relaxing place with a bunch of kind strangers; the name of that place is Heather's Coffee. This place has different events every week, such as live music, trivia games, and artistic performances. The menu is very versatile and friendly for all kinds of tastes. The veggie wrap comes in a herb tortilla with cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, avocado, onion, and roasted red pepper. The Pedro fresh salad is a combination of black bean and corn relish with avocado, pico de gallo, tortilla strips, and Santa Fe Ranch Dressing. You can order online, request catering, or just show up in person and have a good time with the nice people around you. 

This place is adorable. It's an old farmhouse turned cafe so there is a ton of character. The outdoor area is unexpectedly huge. The patio is partially covered with tents and the landscaping is pretty. Yelp Review.


A favorite for residents and tourists

57 W Central Ave, Springboro, OH 45066-1103 |+1 937-748-3017 |

This is a great place to visit with your friends or family. Rooster's is particularly well known for its chicken wings. The wings are freshly cooked and never frozen. They are hand-breaded and cooked in 100% zero trans fat soy oil, and there are eleven different sauces from mild to very spicy that you can choose from. The salads are always fresh and are available to order as a half or full order, a perfect order with your crispy chicken wings. Some other delicious appetizers include mozzarella sticks, fried mushrooms, cheesy garlic bread, and potato skins, a combination of five different potato skins, cheddar, mozzarella, and bacon bits with sour cream. Another great thing about Rooster's is the Rooster's Foundation that gives over one million dollars a year to local organizations and charities. You can donate or request a donation at the Rooster's website. 

Great place to grab some wings. Their boneless are hand breaded and always fresh. Wife loved their chicken wrap grilled with hot sauce. Their medium is like mild and hot like medium. The Korean BBQ sauce is stunning! Yelp Review.

Dorothy Lane Market

An exciting grocery shopping trip.

740 N Main St, Springboro, OH 45066-8944 | +1 937-748-6800 |

Over the last few years, more people started to be concerned about the quality of the food they are eating. Is it vegan? Is it gluten-free? Is it locally and organically produced? As consumers had all these questions, food suppliers started to give some answers. This is why Dorothy Lane Market is a great place to have lunch. Most of the businesses here are local so they know exactly how the food was produced and what ingredients it has. From red meat and fish to gourmet cheeses and Naples-Style pizzas, you will find ingredients in this market to improve the quality and taste of the food you cook at home, or you can just pick up some dishes that are ready to go and eat them upstairs or at home. The variety of bread, sauces is worth checking out as you can prepare all kinds of dishes with them. You won't regret it!

Dorothy Lane Market is my go-to for desserts and sauces. They are a full grocery store offering some unique and organic foods. Their bakery is not to be ignored. Killer brownies. Just the name says it all. But everything they make is wonderful. And the staff is always ready to help you make decisions or give suggestions. Trip Advisor Review.

Main Street Deli

Keeping your sandwiches fresh since 1995

465 N Main St, Springboro, OH 45066-9556 | +1 937-748-3800 |

From Monday to Saturday, this is a great place to have a fresh sandwich for lunch at a cute little restaurant that offers so many options of sandwiches that you are going to want to try them all. The croissant chicken cheesesteak comes with grilled chicken strips, American and Swiss cheese, mayo, green peppers, and onion. You also have the option of making your own sandwich and choosing from a variety of meats like smoked turkey, corned beef, tuna salad, grilled chicken, bologna, and Italian sub. You can pick as many toppings as you want and add additional meat or cheese. You can also order box lunches for small gatherings or events. Visit this place for a fresh alternative, and support this local business!

Your imagination is all that is needed to order a sandwich made to your own specification. Ham, Beef, Swiss, Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Tomatoes, lettuce... and that's just the stuff I normally order. The choices go much deeper. Trip Advisor Review.

During these difficult times of economic uncertainty, remember that many families rely on their restaurants and local businesses to pay for their expenses and basic needs. Since all of us as humans need to eat at least a few times a day to survive, try to support these local restaurants as much as your budget allows you too. You will be satisfied with a special meal, and you will help a family sustain a better future.
