Buckabee Brownies is Cincinnati’s First — and Only — Brownie Shop


Buckabee Brownies opened in February 2019 as the first — and only — bakery in the city that specializes in brownies (and blondies, a brownie that substitutes vanilla for chocolate in the base batter). The shop offers 16 permanent and seasonal flavors ranging from more the traditional, like fudgy chocolate or chocolate and walnut, to more unique takes including red velvet cream cheese, lemon poppyseed and pumpkin.

In addition to brownies and blondies, the bakery also offers a "square of the day" with flavors like coffee and white chocolate on Mondays, salted caramel on Tuesdays, and raspberry and white chocolate on Fridays. Single brownies and blondies cost $1.95, a box of nine brownies/blondies cost $15.60 and box of 16 cost $27.30.

The mom-and-pop shop is owned by husband and wife Miriam Spitz and Tom Kahan, both from Cincinnati. “We’re passionate about sharing the joy that comes from biting into fresh, artisanal brownies handcrafted with the perfect balance of nostalgic and new flavors, and bringing square-a-licious happiness everywhere, from our own shop to your next gathering,” Spitz says.

Open Monday through Saturday, the bakery also offers coffee and brownie edges for those who fancy a crunchier texture. Buckabee Brownies provides catering for weddings, corporate events, receptions and meetings.
