  Duck-Rabbit Coffee in Ohio City


The other day I stopped into the newest coffee shop in Ohio City called Duck Rabbit coffee.  This artisanal coffee roaster and shop  is not only gorgeous inside but the coffee itself is delicious.  You’ve got to swing by and grab a cup next time you are in the area.



I had the Penderisco pour-over  from Columbia. It seriously was smooth and rich but very drinkable, not bitter. Next time I visit I want to try a cappuccino…fancy!

DR-6The baristas at Duck Rabbit were helpful in selecting my coffee as they bantered back and forth about the tunes on the radio. It is a bright and friendly space that I hope you are able to stop by and take in soon. My favorite part? Besides the coffee…as a designer you gotta love their charming duck-rabbit pseudo taxidermy logo, nice work guys!

Happy December everybody! Can you even believe we are doing the end of the year countdown? Where in the heck did this year go?

This year the holidays have such a different feeling. I am guessing it’s having a baby in the house that going back to the holiday basics is so sweet. While we aren’t quite there yet with the infamous “Elf on a Shelf” we are looking forward to a trip to see Santa, a few small gifts under the tree and the giggles that accompany Mom’s holiday caroling. It’s gonna be a fun holiday season, for sure!
