What is Kafe Kerouac?

Coffee House and Bar

What is Kafe Kerouac? Located at 2250 North High St., Columbus OH, Kafe Kerouac is many things to many people. For some it’s the place they study for finals, have drinks with friends, see a poetry slam, comedy show, view artwork, buy books and records, meet for a first date, play board games - you name it. In truth, Kafe Kerouac is an alternative space to hang out with friends and enjoy great coffee, baked goods, beer, wine, and more… A place that loves art in all its forms.

Our house coffee is locally roasted with fair trade beans. We carry a full line of local and imported beers, rotating in new beers all the time. We sell wonderful wines by the glass and bottle. Our House red and white wines are only $4 a glass and $12 a bottle.

Check out our monthly wine, whiskey & beer tastings. See our schedule for more information.

The only Bar that recycles all Bottles and Cans. Small businesses should do their part.
