About

Iris BookCafe, located at 1331 Main Street in Cincinnati’s historic Over-the-Rhine, is part of an urban neighborhood that prides itself  on its array of art studios and galleries. Come shop our selection of used, rare and collectible  books with a coffee, a cup of specially blended Essencha tea, or a custom-made sandwich in our contemporary cafe setting (including complimentary wireless internet). Or enjoy a pleasant evening in our courtyard, where a driftwood arbor created by Chris Daniel of Thin Air Studios provides an oasis for relaxing conversation or introspection in an urban atmosphere. The New York Times desribed Iris BookCafe as "a serene rare book shop," and it's easy to see why. 

We incorporate art into nearly everything we do–from the rotating exhibits of photography on the walls to the handmade pottery from which you drink your beverages, to the artisan furniture to the homemade, locally sourced foods.

We are open until 10pm Sunday through Thursday, providing a place to gather or enjoy your own company in the later hours. Friday hours are 8am-6pm and Saturday hours are 11am-6pm.
