We were in town visiting my son in Cincinnati. Stopped in on a Saturday morning about 11am for a late breakfast. We had to wait about 15 minutes for a table which i understand but it was painful watching the young man bussing the tables in slow motion (the hostess finally went over and helped him) and also watched as...

I've always enjoyed eating at Mokka; however, after my last visit, I doubt I'll go back. Our server, Logan, seemed as if he'd rather be elsewhere. He was polite, but completely unenthusiastic ... just going through the motions. I ordered a Crispy Chicken wrap, which has always been my favorite, and waffle fries. Our server returned to ask if I'd... More

I have been here often for breakfast and for the occasional lunch. Their Goetta is wonderful as is their signature french toast dish. lunch are options are varied and provide a good mix for meat and non- meat eaters alike. Not even here for dinner but they have a full bar and special dinner nights.

The owner, Kim, unlocked the doors a little early as we arrived before nine. Made a pot of coffee and chatted with us until our server, Emily, arrived and took our order. The French toast is out of this world. Personalized service and wonderful food. It will be our breakfast stop very time we return to Cincinnati.

They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is a great place to eat for a sandwich or a dinner, or even breakfast. Food prices are reasonable. Mokka Sunset Bar and Grill is clean and well lit and has a terrific view of the city streets from the large windows. Nice friendly staff. They have a good bar with a number... More

I run on Saturday mornings with a group. We go out for breakfast after. We came to Mokka, when I asked the hostess for a table for 6-she said 'I have to check with the manager to see if I can put a table together'. She did. We sat down and waited and waited. In the meantime, another friend who... More

We were looking for a place to get breakfast after heading out from staying in Newport for the weekend. Based on tripadvisor reviews we headed to this place and weren't disappointed. With it being a Monday morning, it wasn't crowded at all and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. My husband ordered french toast and I ordered an... More

Busy place on weekends, but go anyway. Their creme-brulee french toast is fantastic. Their service is always good, even with a crowd. We have never been here for dinner or evening entertainment, but we will try that next. You can't go wrong with Mokka!

I started going to Mokka when there was one in Hebron. The breakfast was always excellent but they were only open for breakfast, and thus the Hebron Mokka's closed. The Mokka's in Newport was never as good as Hebron but lately it has slid off into unreccomendabiltity. The last, and perhaps final, time I had breakfast there was last week... More

It's not easy to get a quality made delicious breakfast for $7. The pancakes, French Toast and waffles are awesome. Saturday night steak night is worth checking out too. $12 for a decent steak, side salad, veggie and potato. Got the black and blue done medium. It was cooked prefect lay and tasted great. This isn't a Ruby steak but... More
