Coffee House | Jazz Lounge
Caffè Vivace is a coffee house by day and a jazz lounge by night. It provides a space for Cincinnatians to gather, work, socialize and herald the musical art form of Jazz. Founded by Brent Gallaher and Vanessa Keeton with the goal of bringing a full-time jazz listening venue back to the Queen City, they paired it with a second passion for artisan coffee giving the residents of and visitors to Walnut Hills and the surrounding Cincinnati neighborhoods a place to grab their morning brew, hang out and work on their computers, or gather with friends over craftsman-quality coffee, espresso beverages, or even an alcoholic libation. As the workday draws to a close, patrons can stay and listen to our area's finest local jazz musicians, young and old, as well as the occasional regionally or nationally known artists.
Caffè Vivace offers a full coffee and espresso menu Monday-Saturday until 6 PM. We source only the finest artisan coffee from Carabello Coffee. They roast only the very best in quality coffee which is acquired through Fair Trade, farm-direct and direct-relationship. We add to this fine coffee offering, loose-leaf teas supplied by La Terza.
To go with these delicious beverages, we have a selection of premium pastries, in-house baked cookies, and an assortment of grab-and-go snacks. Hungry for more? Caffè Vivace also offers light food including our famous African Peanut Stew, premium flatbreads, hand-pies from O Pie O, Vegan Burrito, pastries from Baudry French Pastries, and all-day breakfast sandwiches.
