Clifton had a grocery on Ludlow for something like 80 years. It closed a couple years ago, due to the owner owing back taxes. However, it is currently being renovated into a new store. Opening is TBA, but theoretically should be within a few months. I say theoretically because this has been promised almost since the old store closed. However, recent news suggests things really are on pace now for an opening at least by the end of 2013. It used to be a great store, and should be better (if and) when it reopens.

Over-the-Rhine has a Kroger store that is controversially decent or not. It seems more an issue of whether you are willing to deal with some perhaps unsavory folks in the parking lot (this decidedly poorly designed store breaks a historic streetwall up with a parking lot). OTR also has Findlay Market. Between the two of these, groceries are pretty well covered in this area. It's a short bus ride up Vine Street to a huge Kroger store at the top of the hill near UC campus for the odd item which Findlay/OTR Kroger can't provide.

Which brings us to: CUF has the Corryville Kroger (and Walgreens) within decent walking distance, depending where in the neighborhood you live.

If you want a grocery store which is walkable, you can find it. If the Clifton store opens soon, that is probably the best neighborhood grocery option. It's been quite a blow to the neighborhood having to go without such a major staple for two years.

Very much agree that the loss of the former Keller's IGA on Ludlow crippled the entire neighborhood--not only was it a decent urban neighborhood store, it was a magnet for all kinds of shoppers. Great vibes, decent service, always busy! (In the late '80s, my wife and I walked to Keller's from nearby Hosea Ave, while also shopping the Corryville Kroger, via the now defunct Metro #53.)

There's also the Northside option. I don't think it's as polished as the OP is looking for, but it should definitely get checked out by him/her. The Mitchell Kroger is not far and there's a Save-a-Lot in the neighborhood. Plus, there's the 24hr White Castle there for that 3am craving.

I still think OTR, CUF, Clifton, and Covington are better options though.
