Sparta Restaurant & Coffee Shop
Description: Sparta is a restaurant and coffeeshop located in a historic diner in Downtown Newark, Ohio serving freshly prepared traditional American comfort food since 2012. Our breakfast and lunch menu are available throughout the day or for carry out. Our coffee is direct-trade from Central America farmers. Highlights of our menu include classic breakfast selections, fried chicken and waffles, burgers and sandwiches, grilled veggie salad, vegetarian and vegan, fruit smoothies and espresso bar. Three things make Sparta unique. 1)We focus on freshly prepared, locally-sourced produce, meats, dairy, and baked goods. 2)This historic downtown location with its preserved architectural features has become a magnet for social entrepreneurs and people with a passion for their community. 3) We are a business of Project Main Street providing employment and job training to community members in need. What that means is diners enjoy a rare experience in a welcoming, diverse environment surrounded by people making a difference in their community while enjoying a good meal or cup of coffee. But the real benefit is in knowing good food never did so much good in the community.

Nice menu selection, something for everyone. Large portions of great home cooked food, the atmosphere is wonderful too! Located in a wonderful old building, there is a sense of pride served with each entree. Definitely will be back!

A great local place that thrives on creating community through local entrepreneurship. Retro furnishings with an eclectic menu for breakfast and lunch. I highly recommend the Chicken & waffles, plus the beignets are the best thing north of Mason-Dixon. I'm also not a big coffee guy, but their Jamaica Blue Mountain goes down pretty well.
