Roebling Point Books & Coffee is a great place all around. You can go grab a coffee and buy a book to read in the shop or at the table outside. The woman who was running the register the day I was there was super nice, and the coffee was good.

I stumbled across Roebling Point Book&Coffee on a Sunday when going down to the George Rogers Clark Park. This unusually warm February was soon sweetened with an Iced Vanilla Coffee which was carefully crafted by the nice woman who I instantly picked up a conversation with (sorry I forgot your name, we talked about Germany and German club at Northern...

Coffee is consistently good, but service has been variable. Not a biggie if you are just picking up coffee for the morning commute. On the weekend also nice to take time and read some of the books they have for sale.

Came in here with a small group of friends to grab a quick to go coffee. The place is very cute, but it was awkward to speak above a whisper since the place is so quite. Overall a nice place, but not if you're with a group and want to chat.

This is a great little cafe. It has a couple of tables outside and more inside among the books, as it is also a bookstore. Coffee is very good. I only wish they had more chairs outside, the two tables/4 chairs are always taken.

The atmosphere here is great. The coffee shop is in front and you can walk into two other rooms filled with books and seating. Super cozy, great place to sit back and relax with friends. Definitely a hidden gem.

This place offers coffee and books. The books are a mix of classics and books on local tourism. Given the lack of bookstores these days, they have a lot to choose from and including older books. The place is comfortable and cozy. They have tables where people meet, have coffee and look at the books.

The Good: location, decor, design, service, coffee The Bad: small?, limited selection This is a fantastic Little place near the river in Covington. It's a series of very small rooms with comfy furniture and books displayed like works of art. For a certain type of person this is Nirvana. The coffee is good but not strong. The food selection is...

Liked the peace and quiet to enjoy the paper - and a relatively inexpensive coffee and donut! Have a meeting room avail too...

It's like walking into your own living room but better! Friendly staff and delicious coffee! I'm reading a hard to find book that I purchased there - excellent atmosphere :)
