College Hill Coffee Co. a great anchor to a great NBD

The College Hill neighborhood business district (NBD) is one of my newest favorite NBDs in Cincinnati. It’s not often that I’m up that way, but I think I’ll be heading there more often after my past few experiences that have left me wanting more out of that neighborhood.

College Hill Coffee Co. is located at the northern end of the business district and is a third place and anchor for the neighborhood. I spent last Wednesday there and it didn’t seem like that long until I looked down at my watch and realized I had spent over three hours there.

They have some great coffee, good food offerings, table service, a small retail area and a comfortable environment to hang out that features free wi-fi. Here are a few pictures I grabbed of the interior while I was there.
