A classic utility motorcycle with "larger than life" personality was designed to fit the smallest streets of Italy and now finds in Cincinnati a new home and a new purpose.
L'Ape, invented by Corradino D'Ascanio and produced by Piaggio in 1946; Ape is the Italian word for bee. This classic Italian finds in Cincinnati a new purpose as a mobile espresso bar. Cool and unique, this little gal is not shy about working days or nights, hot and cold, rain or shine.
Urbana Cafe main focus is on Italian style coffee extraction using quality ingredients and using a very tradition Neapolitan approach for espresso making. This timeless coffee extortion system not only produces a rich and full-bodied coffee, but also brings to the live a relationship between barista and customer that goes beyond coffee to creating a memorable experience.
Our Vespas, Julia and Lucia can be found most weekends at Findlay Market and also around the city in festivals and private events.
Located in the heart of Broadway Square in Pendleton, Urbana Cafe serves fine espresso drinks and delicious snacks with an Italian-American twist.

Vespa and espresso culture collides at this Urbana Cafe location, from the walls to the espresso machine, from its relaxed environment to the energizing espresso offerings. The multi-level cafe offers the choice to observe passers-by from the balcony-style bar on the 2nd floor, or watch the art of cooking and espresso making as it occurs in the open-floor design.
