This is really a wonderful store to find the books you wouldn't normally find at main stream books stores. I did enjoy looking around but when it came down to customer service the older woman in there was a snobby and impatient.

This is a fine bookstore. But please don't get coffee at the nearby corporate chain Starbucks, when there two perfectly good LOCAL INDEPENDENT coffee houses within 2 blocks and much better tasting too at Rohs Cafe (at Rohs and McMillan) and Baba Budan's (239 W. McMillan). Shopping at chains like $tarbuck$ has the same effect as shopping at Borders or Barnes&Noble or Amazon for books. Any money you give to chains will slowly destroy small businesses like this that need your patronage. Look at all the stores UC is undermining with their new re-development--how many are local and independent? There used to be so many more. Please shop LOCAL and INDEPENDENT. Duttenhofer's is a-okay.

Duttenhofer's Books is a treasure trove
This place is so much fun to poke around in! A real used book store that has old books, classics, and even recent fiction, this makes Half-Price books look like McDonalds. Quality character, fabulous staff (have a chat with the owner if he's in) and great location.

Tempted to buy Google reviews? Why it's a bad idea.

Best Bookstore – This bookstore is better than any other in Cincinnati. If you are inerested in finding books that you never new existed or, if you are searching for rare and out of print copies, than this is the right bookstore. Also, they are a knowledgeble and friendly staff!

The ambiance is rarified, with WGUC as background music and displays of antique maps and books for decor. – In Short
This store, which carries 40,000 titles, including rare out of print books and first and limited editions, is where the cognoscenti go for works by obscure poets and minor literary lions. Unusual in this day and age, you can't get a cup of coffee in the bookstore. But coffee is bad for you, so stroll over to the nearby Clifton Natural Foods for a fruit smoothie. Actually, if you must have that cup o' joe, a Starbucks is right nearby.

A shop for the serious booklover – For the casual coffee/book shoppers that want to browse the latest bored-house-wife thrillers and pick up Harry Potter for their kids on the way out; don't come here. This is for devout book lovers who, um, love books. It is cozy, warm, slightly musty, and completely another world. A world of books.
