Walk into Rising Star on the corner of 29th and Church at The Ohio City Firehouse and you'll be greeted by a friendly and educated staff. These people really know coffee (they're the ones who introduced me to the Aeropress!) Local art is displayed on the walls and available for sale. Pick up a coffee, local sweet treats, or beans to go.
Major bonus:: My boyfriend did the build out for the space, stop in to have a coffee; and of course to check out his work.
