Arrived ~9 am on a Sunday to get the last open 4-person table. By 10:00, the line was well out the door - Get there early. Food and service all very good. I would have preferred the coffee a tad hotter, but it arrived in a timely manner and the refills kept coming. Excellent place for a leisurely weekend breakfast.... More

I came here a few weeks ago with a friend and we were blown away. It was really busy being a Sunday afternoon but it was well worth the wait. The restaurant is farm to table and everything you need to know about the food is laid and can be explained by the staff. The food itself is amazing and... More

Stopped for the first time on Sunday for brunch. We had a 45 minute wait, but were able to sit in the outdoor waiting area complete with picnic tables and free coffee. The herb garden was still in full growing stage as the weather in Cleveland has been great. I got a roasted turkey omelet, which was on the specials... More

Holy sh** the Mac N Cheese is incredible. Seriously. The rest of our order was okay. The service was friendly, but slow. The cafe has a little neo-hippie-hipster pretentiousness, but cute. It's worth the trip.

After talking about trying Lucky's Cafe for ages, we finally had the time to eat an amazing lunch here. Two of us had the reuben sandwich and the other two had the mac and cheese. All of us left stuffed and completely satisfied.Homemade goodness at its best! Can't wait to come back for the biscuits and gravy.

We had the Shipwreck and Canoewreck---both very tasty, hot, fresh. Our waitress was nice but inexperienced and overwhelmed.

My wife and I decided to eat here because it seemed like a nice place that got great reviews. The atmosphere was wonderful, small, intimate, and old school. Very hip and modern. The menu was very small and specialized. All of their ingredients are local, or from farmers and gardens within 100 miles. The food is OUT OF CONTROL GOOD!!!... More

I was close after going to the Christmas story house. I went and was blown away with lamb burger. It's lamb/ pork with spinach and cheese. It was simply amazing!!

Everything is locally sourced and homemade. This place is doing an awesome job at providing fresh and local food that tastes awesome. The sausage gravy and biscuits were delicious. I had the corn griddle cakes with peach compote and lemon verbena sauce. Oh my! Delish! The plum ginger fizzy drink was just right. The server Shonda was super friendly and... More
