Upon arriving in my friend Carin’s neighborhood near the University of Cincinnati I had intentions of stopping at the Highland Coffee House only to find it didn’t open till 5. Fortunately across the corner at University & Highland I found Mecklenburg Gardens. It’s a German pub/restaurant with many classic German beers on tap with fun, but professional service. They even take care in pouring a perfect beer. Presentation counts in my book. Carin’s on her way so I have to go.
