Iris BookCafé (Over-the-Rhine), a coffeehouse, brunch spot, used bookstore, and art gallery rolled into one eclectic storefront and perfect for a crisp autumn day. Lola’s (downtown), an urban oasis with an atmosphere to fit your mood, whether you’re looking for a welcoming space to meet friends or a hip after-work cocktail spot.


Redtree Art+Coffee (Oakley), a cavernous art gallery and coffeehouse offering plenty of private tables and rentable gathering space.

The Coffee Peddlar (Harrison), a cozy main street brunch spot with live music on Friday nights and an enclosed courtyard for outside get-togethers.


Mom ‘n ‘Em (Camp Washington), the light-filled brainchild of the Ferrari Bros, stocked with all the coffee (and wine) you could possibly need to fuel a remote workday. College Hill Coffee Co. (College Hill), a neighborhood gem with a wide variety of workspace setups for your next brainstorming session or solo professional pursuits. White Oak Coffee House (Cheviot), a cozy house-turned-coffee-shop with an unpretentious menu and cushy surroundings that give “work from home” a whole new meaning.


Mile 42 Coffee (Loveland), a walk-up window cafe just steps from the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail that serves up Loveland-inspired classics like the “Frogman Mocha.” Trailhead Coffee (Newport), a specialty coffee bar (also with a walk-up window) tucked inside Reser Bicycle Outfitters.
