This place roasts their own beans each week... Freshly roasted coffee. The wife and I enjoyed excellent coffees here in ceramic mugs.

We have been patronizing this location for five years- our preference is for strong bold coffee, and they always have some brewed any time of the day. We also like to buy a few pounds when we stop in-- French Roast Ethiopian is our favorite. Buy 10, get a free pound with card!! Worth stopping in for sure!

I am not by any means a coffee person, but I love the atmosphere of coffee shops. This little place blows panera and starbucks out of the water. The service is always great, the workers know customers by name, are fast and efficient but still give quality customer service. They have a small, but delicious lunch menu for a great... More

I love the fact that they roast it right there in the store so it's really very fresh, fragrant and absolutely wonderful coffee! They also have a limited menu of nice food items, mostly sandwich and such but I'd say it's really worth going to and checking out your selection. On a good cool evening, sit outside in the small...

Searching around Cincinnati for either Kona or Jamaican Blue Mountain, coffee house after coffee house directed me to Lookout Joe. Their staff was friendly, and it looked like a nice place. However, the employee who was trying to help me swore he didn't know anything about either kind of coffee I was searching for. We left empty-handed.

I have been going to Lookout Joe for years. I wouldn't go anywhere else. It is an unassuming coffee house, and there are certainly fancier places in nearby Hyde Park. But there is something genuine about this place that makes me love it. The staff are wonderful and personable. They treat you like family. There have been many a time... More

I am writing this review as a local. I go there with friends every week. It is a cozy mom & pop coffee shop in Mt. Lookout Square. In the early morning when they roast coffee it fills the square and the houses along it with aroma of fresh coffee roast. There is a large patio in front and is... More
