Open the door to Iris BookCafé and Gallery and discover a locavore’s delight. We take pride in serving only the best of what Cincinnati has to offer. Our menu selections are made with all-natural ingredients provided by local suppliers and coffee roasters.

While food is local, our vintage book collection is global. We carry books on architecture, art, fashion, philosophy, literature, poetry, drama, film, photography, cooking, famous gardens, Americana, and children’s book, many in foreign languages (including the largest collection of Polish books in Cincinnati).

Look up at the walls and you’ll see professionally curated exhibitions of fine photography, well lit and carefully presented, changing several times a year.

Iris BookCafe and Gallery is a culinary and cultural oasis in historic Over-the-Rhine.
