Good Mothers Day Buffet

We were a very large group and had the whole upstairs on Mothers Day. The buffet had most of the normal items like scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes etc. The small chicken pot pies were very good plus lots of sweets and wonderful choc. Strawberries. Overall a good value and service.

Located two blocks from Newport on the Levee. This is a family owned business. They have an awesome breakfast lunch and dinner menu. They also have a stage where local musicians play.

Mokka's food is good. Their menu is eclectic with a nice variety for all tastes. I really enjoy the menu items that include goetta. They have a Goetta Grinder and a Goetta Grilled Cheese and others. I had the Goetta Grilled Cheese recently...mmmm mmmm good. One nit pick, my sandwich needed just one more slice of cheese. Great atmosphere and... More

I can't believe I'm just now getting around to reviewing this place. I have to have brunch here every time I am in KY visiting the family. The servers are always sweet and sometimes a little sassy (but nicely so). They've got good southern/midwestern breakfast options. I've had the breakfast pizza on many occasions, if you like goetta and sausage... More

My husband and I were there Saturday Nov.29, 2014 and love it. Food was great, reasonably priced. We had a great waitress named Kathy, who has us laughing. We will be back.

My husband and I went for a Sunday brunch. Place was PACKED, and we had to wait a while for a table, but the waitress was friendly and food was warm when it arrived. Tried goetta for the first time, and it was pretty tasty! I've had better biscuits, but the french toast was quite good. Just judging from the... More

We have come here several times and always enjoy the food. It's a bit quirky, but we like that too. Reasonable prices and good service keep us coming back.

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.
