A ribbon-cutting and grand opening was held in May. Straight will operate the restaurant with the help of her family and between two and five employees, the restaurant owner said.
Canal House Eatery’s menu will include Specialty Wraps, Paninis, Sandwiches, Soups, Salads, Side Dishes, Desserts and fresh bakery items, Straight said.

The leased space previously housed Palmitas Taco Shop, which shut its doors in December 2017 and is working on transitioning to a food truck, according to its Facebook page.
Straight, who has lived in Miamisburg for 12 years and has three children in the Miamisburg school district, operated The Red Wagon Cafe for six years before selling it last year to pursue other interests.

“The opportunity to open The Canal House unexpectedly presented itself” via family members who told her about the former Palmitas space, Straight said. “ The option seemed too good to pass up, so my family and I decided to give it a shot.”
Plans call for Canal House Eatery to be open Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.. and for Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
