Tazza Mia: Downtown Coffe Shop Hops

I found a new place to grab a bit e to eat on Sunday mornings. Here is a review I found about the place online.

"An inviting and laid-back combo of coffee shop and cafe, Tazza Mia's free WiFi draws lots of business folk with laptops, as well as casual lunchers and serious coffee drinkers too.

Paninis, artisan breads, coffees ground and roasted fresh for every cup - with free refills - tea lattes, desserts and chocolates tempt the hungry diner as well as those just giving themselves a well-earned treat."

For the most part I thought that this place was a great place. Centrally located in the Carew Tower, Tazza is a great meeting place for breakfast or lunch meetings for the business downtown worker, or even if you are just visiting the Queen City.

The sandwiches are a bit over priced for what you get, but if you are looking to support locally owned businesses, Tazza is your place.

Cincy Ave Making a Name For Itself

If you read this blog, most of you know that I have a few different business on the the side. A small publishing business, 15 West Publishing where I publish books by local authors in addition to providing editorial service.

I also have a pretty successful consulting business, ION Consultants (ionconsults.com) where I provide resume and cover letter writing service, in addition to business plan writing.

Last week I received a new client who wanted me to create a business plan for his website www.cincyave.com.

This young man has down a great job with not alot of resources. His brain child combines a web presence like CityBeat.com and fuses it with the social networking capability of MySpace.com or FaceBook.com.

The great thing about this website is that it all centers around things to do in Cincinnati.

I am going to enjoy this project!

All Is Right At Deli Seven 20

Formerly Poppies’ Deli located on Elm Street, Deli Seven 20 has emerged as one of the best kept lunch time secrets of Cincinnati’s business district.

Now located in what was formerly called Buck Town, at the corner of Pete Rose Way and Eggleston, Deli 720 has succeeded in carving out a niche in The Sawyer Point Building, pre-made with captive clientele comprised of several different companies including C.R.E. Corporation, and Northlich Incorporated.

Deli 720 uses its new home, built in 1905 and once the home to the American Tool Company and then White Consolidated Industries, to serve some of the most saliva inspiring lunch time delights in the city.

Michelle Lightfoot, the brains and beauty behind the popular Poppies’ struck gold again with her recent proprietary achievement. Her signature recipes of freshly chopped garden veggies and thinly sliced sandwich meats, in addition to tasty toppings have all made the transition across town from the widely popular Poppies’ to the insatiable Deli Seven 20.

Open weekdays 8am to 3pm, you can stop by on your way to work or at lunch time and settle your taste buds on their riki tiki turkey sandwich, comprised of roast turkey, Swiss cheese, olive tapenade and honey mustard all layered nicely atop a fucaccia.

Not only that, you can stay on the healthy side by choosing the equally delectable salad seven 20 infused with mixed greens chilled pasta, tomato, blue cheese, English cucumber, toasted pine nuts and chopped bacon.

Note: Your sandwich and salad option also include your choice of ingredient mix and matches, included daily made soups and home-made sweet potato chips.

Taking no more than five minutes from order to delivery, Deli seven 20 is a perfect lunch time place for you if you are looking for something new and fresh without paying an arm and a leg.
