Great any day of the week! Amazing coffee and good atmosphere. In the summer they have an awesome patio. In the winter their upstairs is really cozy. On Sundays though they have this amazing event called Waffle Madness. In which you get a Belgian waffle and can put essentially what ever you want on it. Best Waffles Ever!

I loved how huge this space is. We had some coffee and delicious chocolate chip cookies late one Saturday afternoon and just took our time hanging out. I also bought some beans from their huge selection. The staff was extremely friendly. The place has a college hangout atmosphere.

I love it here !! When you first walk in your greeted so friendly. It's got a warm feel to the place . There is limited seating upstairs. I tried the Breakfast Burrito with bacon and salsa and it was really good . The Mackinac Island Fudge coffee was good too. They have a beautiful patio that has plenty of... More

We literally had to go back the next day for another visit. This is such an amazing quaint, hipster coffee shop. The place was filled with all ages, all ethnicities and a very diverse crowd! I felt so welcome in this rather large coffee space! There were many choices and the bakery items looked and tasted amazing (try the nutella... More

FULL DISCLOSURE: I've known the past several owners of the original Emporium for over two decades and it keeps getting better. Ohio's oldest coffee company, the current owners have really turned in up a notch. Over the past decade or so they've established locations downtown, at Xavier University and re-done the original Hyde Park facility. They roast their own beans... More

Consistently good coffee and food. Love the patio!! The upstairs is nice but it can get loud when it starts to fill up. If you like coffee this is a great place to visit.

Wow. Forget your Starbucks craving and get your fix here. Definitely the best coffee. Location downtown is bigger and comfortable.

I have been a fan of this place for about 15 years now. The owner/operators, Tony and Eileen are vivacious, personable, and truly passionate about coffee. The only other place I've had better coffee is in Costa Rica. If you are in the Cincinnati area, this is a MUST for you. If you aren't a coffee drinker, no worries, their... More

Fantastic garden area with outdoor seating. Upstairs seating area is small but nice great place to study! The snacks are made fresh by their kitchen and delivered to them. so it's pretty cool to get something that's made in house!
