Cincinnati & NKY guide to Local Coffee Houses

This post is part of a sponsored relationship with Kala Coffeehouse. We are grateful to them for their support in helping us provide this resource and love the chance to support local small businesses!

Cincinnati is well-known for its unique local flavors. Who can think of the Queen City without conjuring up images of cheese coneys, barbecued ribs, or mouthwatering ice cream cones? But Cincy is not just for foodies — it’s a mecca for coffee lovers as well!

There are more than 70 local Cincinnati coffee shops across the area (yes, you read that right — more than 70!!), and each one has something unique to offer. From locally roasted beans to incredible gelato, allergy-friendly menus to call-ahead ordering, you’re sure to find your new favorite coffee shop somewhere on this list.

To make it easier to locate a great cup of joe in your area, the list has been divided by region: North, Central/Downtown, East, West, and South/NKY.

Did we miss one of your favorite Cincinnati coffee shops? Let us know in the comments and we’ll be sure to add it.

Now go forth and caffeinate!

Kala Coffeehouse

We have two words for you. Avocado. Toast.

We actually have a lot of words for you about the brand new Kala Coffeehouse, that opened earlier this year in Mason, Ohio, but those two above give you one specific delicious reason (out of many) to stop by and try them out. Roger and Jackie, the owners, are the epitome of what it means to own a small business in Cincinnati. They work hard, pour their heart into all of the operations, source and support other local businesses whenever possible, and give back. Plus, they pour a DIVINE cup of coffee.

If you are looking for a fun, family-friendly environment to take a break from your regular daily stressors, Kala is the place to go. The interior is cozy and it’s easy to see all the personal touches that went into every aspect of the decor. The food is HEALTHY and delicious. Remember that Avocado Toast we mentioned above. It’s only one of a variety of equally delicious options on the menu. Several of the CMB mamas have declared their Sausage Muffin a personal favorite, but there is no shortage of vegetarian options available here. All of this combined with that freshly made coffee makes this a great place to catch up with friends, have brunch with family, or even claim a few quiet minutes all to yourself (sounds heavenly, right?)

“At Kala, it’s about more than a cup of coffee. It’s about the community. A portion of profits always goes to support local causes. One of the causes closest to our heart is the kids of Warren County and beyond. We seek to use resources to help children who are neglected, forgotten or overlooked. By choosing Kala, you are choosing to join in the fight for better futures for Warren County kids.”
