Cincinnati

Take the Cake

Take the Cake has been called the most amazing breakfast place ever by Zhenya, who has eaten at a lot of breakfast places.  The have a different menu each day depending on the ingredients and seasons, but they typically have the same type of dishes with rotating ingredients.  Fritatta with mushrooms, potatoes, and bacon with a fresh side salad. Or you could try two different kinds of heart-shaped waffles with granola, yogurt, and berries.  Or you could go all out with the banana walnut french toast bread pudding covered in caramel sauce. {see above}  Do we need to say more?

A Tavola

For the best pizza in the city, come visit A Tavola on Vine Street. They make incredible wood-fired pizzas with a great wine and beer list. They also have veggie appetizers that are so good they almost make you forget to save room for pizza.  Unfortunately, there can be a long wait on the weekends since they don’t take reservations, but you can just hop on over across the street to Lackman to get a drink while you wait.

1215 Wine Bar & Coffee Shop

There are so many reasons to visit our new favorite spot in Cincinnati that it is impossible to list them all. But the highlights include incredibly friendly and beautiful atmosphere, a bloody mary bar on the weekends, and delicious coffee and wine in the same spot!

Nada

A modern Mexican restaurant in Downtown, they have delicious tacos and pork sopes.  And their chips and salsa are addicting! In addition to the great food and beautiful outdoor patio, they also have some custom laser-cut check boards designed and made by…us!

Melt

This great little sandwich place in Northside focuses on vegetarian and vegan items! Try the artichoke pizza or half a sandwich and half a salad!  And their brunch menu looks great, too!

Findlay Market

Located in Over-the-Rhine, Findlay Market is has indoor, daily vendors that sell meat, cheese, spices, and bread.  But they also have weekly vendors outdoors that sell local produce, flowers, and food goodies!  They also have vendors that sell produce that is not local, but they have very good prices and unique selections! Saturdays are typically the busiest, when people come from all over Cincinnati and Kentucky go shopping, grab a bite to eat, or just people watch!

Graeter’s

Cincinnati prides itself on the deliciousness that is Graeter’s ice cream.  With multiple locations around Cincinnati, they are famous for bigger than bite-sized chips in all of their chip flavors.  We’ve never met a flavor we didn’t like, but Coconut Chip and Buckeye Blitz top the list.

ForkHeartKnife

Unfortunately, FHK closed in May of 2011.  It will be truly missed, but we wish them great adventures in the future.

Chelsea Hey, I would add FORK HEART KNIFE to this list. Sierra Laumer who runs the tiny spot on Main St downtown is really cool/sweet and buys Findlay Market produce and bases her menu off whatever’s freshest there. The place and the food are very gourmet, but in a laid-back kinda way. The sad part is that, since they just recently opened (originally as a catering-ONLY business), they’re restricting hours to Thursday nights and Sunday brunch. But that makes it that much better when you can wander down around 11am on a lazy Sunday and score a huge bowl of delicious yogurt w granola and fresh berries, or grab some of their unique, full of everything good muffins. I’d highly recommend that you stop by and see if you like it as much as I do!
