3128 Colerain Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45225

Mom 'n Em coffee & wine shop is truly one of my favorite places to grab some wine  and tinned fish either inside the gorgeously renovated old home, or outside on the spacious patio. 


Mom n Em's inspiration comes from owners Tony and Austin Ferrari's mother. Their goal to give something back to her became successful when they bought a house in Camp Washington and turned it into a quaint coffee shop.

Best For: Breakfast, Coffee, Co-working, Lunch with Wine
