Rising Star Coffee Roasters was a big hit when it moved into a corner space in the rehabbed firehouse in the Ohio City hipster neighborhood newy dubbed “Hingetown.” So of course, it found itself an east side outpost, this one in a more established neighborhood, Little Italy. Located at the nerve center of that neighborhood on the corner of Murray Hill and Mayfield, it opens at 6am Monday through Saturday (and stays open until 8pm) for that cup of coffee lovingly brewed one cup at a time from beans roasted on site. Unlike the Ohio City shop, the east side location has a sit-down bar where patrons can get counter services. Rising Star also sells their coffee beans so you can enjoy a cup at home later.
Since then, it’s opened in two more busy locations: downtown in the Arcade, and Lakewood’s Madison Avenue strip.
