Ordered a salad. Ordering a salad in Cincinnatti appears to be some sort of communist plot against folks in Ohio or Kentucky. If it's fried it's good, if it contains chlorophyll it's subversive... LOL. Mokka made a great salad, had great wine for a reasonable...More

This is one of my favorite places for brunch in the greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. Fresh food and good portions. Large menu with great variety. Server was attentive and friendly. They take reservations too.

Their breakfast was excellent! Service was pretty darn good! Great flavored coffee as well. There's a bar and I noticed they have live entertainment here as well!

My son & I enjoyed dinner, tender chicken salad, on Wednesday. The salad was fresh, the chicken was tender and more than enough food. The service is fast, the waitress is so kind and friendly.

Four of us stopped in for lunch. Everything was great. The ice tea was outstanding. Even though the waitress was slammed with tables, the service was not terribly slow. All-in-all, a good place to eat.
