Thursday Favorites: Cincinnati Edition

Hey everybody! Sorry for the lack of blogging. Work has been a bit crazy and I’ve been more busy outside of work as well. Can I slightly exaggerate and say that I was doing blog research this whole time? Well, let’s go with that! Today I will be talking about a few of my favorite things I’ve done while I wasn’t blogging. While I do realize I talk about Cincinnati a lot, this time I will be reflecting about food, beer and desserts I enjoy all around the Cincinnati area!

Hello Honey

Hello Honey is one of my favorite ice cream places that I’ve never talked about on this blog. It’s adorable, it’s local and they put toasted marshmallows on ice cream guys! They change their flavors from time to time but I really enjoy the seasonal additions. I personally enjoy the salted caramel ice cream. This beauty is located downtown on Vine.

MadTree Brewery

Those who know me, know that I love local breweries, especially MadTree. I’ve only been to this brewery once or twice before but when I headed out there last weekend I was reminded why this place rules. The brewery is massive and they’re always trying out new beers, I liked Suncrest because it reminded me of a smoother version of a Blue Moon. Since it’s getting warmer outside there is cornhole and the patio is the place to be! Not to mention it’s pet friendly and you can buy some cute t-shirts! This brewery is located on Kennedy Avenue, so it’s a bit of a drive for some, but it’s worth it (And yes the guys in that photo were completely photobombing us and it was hilarious to see it after the picture was taken).


Eli’s BBQ

So I had heard about Eli’s for awhile now, but now I’m officially obsessed. This place is fricken fantastic! Not only is your food cheap, it’s mouth wateringly delicious. The mash potatoes melt in your mouth, the pulled pork makes you take huge bites instead of small bites and it’s a bring your own beer location. BYOB! My boyfriend actually took me to this place on on one of our first dates. It was a bit cold then so we didn’t get a chance to eat outside, but since then I’ve gone back and enjoyed some pulled pork on a picnic bench with some MadTree actually. I wish that Eli’s was in a more convenient location (It’s on Riverside Drive), but other than that it’s amazing.

Honorable Mention:

Sprout Market & Eatery

I put Sprout Market & Eatery, which is located in the Mount Adams area,  as an honorable mention because while I really enjoyed my meal, I am a hungry girl. The portions, which I should know by now are going to be small for scallops, were too small for me. I left Sprout rather hungry because there wasn’t a whole lot of food there to eat. My friend and I really enjoyed our meals but it felt more like lunch options and less like dinner options. I would highly recommend this eatery for lunch though!

I’m always looking for some new places to review, so please, give me your suggestions! What do you like to do in Cincinnati?
