Coffee Emporium & Tea Room (3 reviews)
At Coffee Emporium I experienced an eclectic selection of tea, artfully served by a staff that is both knowledgeable and uncommonly friendly. Was there anything not to like? The drive from Florida was a bit far but Id say it was worth it
Ambiance is great--very quaint and cute. Friendly staff too, and a great place for coffee! But tea? Served in a paper cup, not-so-fresh leaves, and no instruction as to what to do with them leaves the true tea drinker somewhat cold & blue.
The Coffee Emporium is almost misnamed. It should be called the coffee and TEA Emporium. They have more selections of tea than anybody else in the area. And as Cincinnati's oldest coffee house (since 1973) they are very knowledgeable about the supreme bean as well as the sublime leaf. The food was very well presented and extremely tasty!! I notice that their website actually shows their downtown location (where they roast all of their own coffee) But, the Hyde Park is an adorable painted lady victorian house. Another advantage to not going to a chain. All independent coffee or tea houses look different!! A rousing round of applause for the Coffee Emporium!!
I agree whole-heartedly!! It's adorable without being stuffy and friendly without being forced. I love the place. I actually go there everyday. Either for the best coffee in Cincinnati or for a relaxing afternoon respite with tea or iced drink. The owners Tony and Eileen Tausch are fabulous and all of the employees are knowledgeable and oh so nice. heaven.
