To say I’m a major fan of Yelp would be an understatement. Despite the fact that I don’t eat meat and have a severe nut allergy, I still love food. My family and I have always considered ourselves foodies, and sadly for me they get to enjoy food a lot more than I do when we try new restaurants. I still love the excitement of discovering something “new”, even if for me it’s just admiring the atmosphere and decor.
When I stumbled upon Katharina’s Café Konditorei in Newport during my usual Yelp browsing session, I knew I had to go. I really don’t venture over to Kentucky like I used to when I was younger. I basically lived at Newport on the Levee as a tween, but as an adult I think the Cincinnati side of the river has been booming and kept me from exploring other areas. My mom and I stopped by Katharina’s for lunch last week, and I instantly felt like I was transported to another country.
The restaurant has a heavy German influence (Konditorei is the German word for a pâtisserie and confectionery shop), but I also got some French vibes when we were there. I loved the European feel, and I honestly didn’t want to leave. It wasn’t trying too hard to be something, it was just perfect. The decor was understated and elegant, and I wanted to move in.
I actually didn’t even eat anything that day because I had just eaten a late lunch, but my mom loved her chicken salad croissant. I was so into taking pictures of the restaurant that I didn’t even think to take a picture of her meal. Whoops!
Have you ever been to Katharina’s? If you’re ever in the Cincinnati/NKY area, I suggest you check it out! You won’t be disappointed.

definitely will be going here soon!
Yes! It’s adorable
I go to school at Miami, and last weekend checked out OTR and it was AMAZING! But I have been dying to head down to Kentucky, so this will be one of my stops whenever I do so!
Ah you’re so close to Cincinnati! We should get together some time and talk blogging! OTR is adorable, as I’m sure you saw. There are so many cute places to see! Yes, you definitely need to head to Northern Kentucky sometime. It’s really charming, and there are lots of hidden gems!
This place looks AWESOME! Totally my kind of place – one that I could spend hours in. I love that I found a fellow Yelper – though I have to admit I’m more of a TripAdvisor gal but I have to admit to checking both!
I’ve dabbled a little bit on TripAdvisor! It’s so exciting finding new places on those apps!
Omg, this place is so cute! Loving this, lady!
