Best Substitute for Community Newsletters: Roebling Point Books & Coffee

While the selection of inspirational reads, fair-trade coffee and reliable WiFi (not to mention the cushy couches) are hard to beat at Roebling Point Books & Coffee in Covington, you can rest assured that each visit comes with lingering conversations about someone’s education initiative, creative frustrations or even pregnancy news. Of course, there are quiet nooks to drown out the neighborhood happenings and focus, but in an age of relentlessly plugging into our headphones and Instagram feeds, isn’t it refreshing to order our espressos with a side of local hopes, dreams and gossip?
