  • Urbana Cafe
    A Vespa Ape might be a common sight on the streets of Cinque Terre, but less so on the streets of Cincinnati. So when you spot the bright blue utility vehicle, it?s a safe guess you?ve discovered Lucia, the Vespa Ape-turned-mobile espresso bar also known as Urbana Cafe. Daniel Noguera, Urbana Cafe's owner, takes Lucia for a spin around the city and parks at Findlay Market most weekends, sharing his hand-roasted coffees with the Cincinnati masses. The Italian-style coffee is also available by the pound, and gelato?not to mention espresso and gelato combined in the Affogato drink?can also be experienced. One other thing that makes Lucia so special? The phrase ?coffee with a purpose? is written across the vehicle, hinting at Urbana Cafe?s commitment to sustainability, as well as its mission to aid the efforts of local dog-rescue organizations.

  • Churchills Fine Teas
    As a British expat, tea is something Kathleen Kern takes very seriously.

It's Churchill's eclectic stock that led to it being honored for the Best Tea Selection by CityBeat's Best of Cincinnati's voters in 2014. With more than 250 teas to choose from, the possibilities are seemingly endless, and tea aficionados and newbies alike can both explore, learn, and, of course, drink tea.

  • Roxx Electrocafe
    Roxx Electrocafe, located near the UC campus, boasts three 42-inch televisions and a massive 73-inch-wide screen that display heated bouts of digital competition across the café's spacious interior. Fourteen powerful gaming computers ($4/hour) enable activities such as cooperative robotic testing in the depths of Portal 2 or competitive right-clicking contests on the battlefields of League of Legends or Heroes of Newerth. Late-night hours yield to marathon console-gaming sessions of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Halo 3, and Rock Band ($4/hour)—all fueled by iced coffees ($2.50) and smoothies ($4), which ensure proper hydration and appropriate glottal lubrication. As the café's four Xbox 360s, four Wiis, and PlayStation 3 enchant eyes and coordinate drill teams of button-pressing thumbs, comfortable chairs and modern décor invite board games or study sessions.

  • Lavo Matic Cafe
    Setting up shop in a formerly run-down launderette, Lavomatic Cafe provides an opportunity to dine on hearty fare without attracting uncomfortable leers from surrounding shirt-folders.

The menu offers a modest yet satisfying selection of comforting classics with a twist, like when grandma gets tipsy and mixes acids with bases. Start with small bites such as chicken lollipops with honey mustard, bourbon barbecue sauce, and spicy garlic sauce ($8.95) or tater tots with truffle, chive, bacon, and cheddar ($7.49). Warm up with tomato bisque and grilled cheese ($7.49) or a fish sandwich with fennel apple straw on rye ($11.49). Refresh the palate with a fusion of flavors thanks to the meatloaf cupcake with country green beans and mashed potatoes ($12.95) or a pork chop with mushroom hash and red-wine caramel ($18.95).
