O’Bryonville, that quaint strip of Madison Road wedged between Walnut Hills and Hyde Park, is BuyCincy’s kind of place: Independent, locally owned and operated businesses as far as the eye can see. Some of these businesses (The BonBonerie, Bob Roncker’s Running Spot and others) have been there for decades, and we look forward to working our way down the strip. But it’s one of O’Bryonville’s newest businesses that caught our eye recently, The Coffee Shop on Madison.

The last month has been a busy one here at BuyCincy HQ. On top of taking home 2 “Best of Cincinnati” award from CityBeat, we have added two new stellar writers to the fold: Jordan Neff
and Stepfanie Romine
. We’ve also been working on a couple parts of the site away from the main page that we though you might want to know about.
One, we have put another update into our local shop directory to add information about Duttenhofer’s , Linden Noll, OUTSIDE, Campus Cyclery and Avril Bleh among others, check out the full directory here
. And two, we would like to give a shout to Reser Bicycle, who a few weeks ago posted a blurb about themselves
on the BuyCincy wiki
. We are encouraging business owners to sign up for our wiki (its free!) and post a little information about their stores to help us spread the word about the plethora of great Cincinnati owned businesses. If you know a business owner that might be interested, send them over!
