About Cynthia Beischel: Cynthia Kuhn Beischel grew up in Cincinnati and enjoyed the special trips downtown to shop and enjoy afternoon luncheons in the tearooms, first with her mother, sister and grandmother, and later with high school and college friends.  Recalling those occasions, in conjunction with taste-testing all the retro recipes, made this writing endeavor a very enjoyable experience.

Her educational background includes a bachelor of science in design at the University of Cincinnati and a master’s degree in Montessori education from Xavier University.

Lost Tea Rooms of Downtown Cincinnati


LOST TEA ROOMS OF DOWNTOWN CINCINNATI (2017): It was a different time... Ladies wore gloves, hats and nice attire to luncheons in tea rooms. Some of the establishments provided a cosmopolitan environment for its patrons, while others were the perfect place to sip and socialize, or a perfect spot to celebrate birthdays, as well as wedding and baby showers, over dainty tea sandwiches. One Cincinnati tea room even became the location for broadcasting a popular Good Morning Show radio program hosted by charming Bob Braun, and later Nick Clooney. Author Cynthia Kuhn Beischel brings the Queen City's bygone downtown tea rooms back to life and shares more than one hundred beloved recipes in "Lost Tea Rooms of Downtown Cincinnati."
