This is one of my absolute favorite places for brunch in Cleveland! It's just a small place--I'm told the lines are out the door to get in on weekends. I've only ever gone during weekdays and it's not very crowded at all then. But, even if I had to wait in line, it would be worth it. The food is... More

Went here for brunch for the first time. The menu is pretty limited and it's not cheap eats by any means. We spent $40 with tip I think (for 2 ppl) and I can tell you I left disappointed. My meal was just okay. I also was irritated because I asked them to leave something out of my order and... More

Every bit of their reuben is home made deliciousness. It lives up to the hype. Their waffles are second to none with flavors that change out and toppings that are beyond delicious. My husband had a gingerbread waffle with baked apples, whip cream and carmel on it. The treats in their bakery are beautiful, delicious and unique. A true neighborhood... More

If you like farm to table fare, this is the place to go. They feature coffees, tea, a unique blend of morning beverages and a menu featuring familiar foods with a twist. The waitress was prompt and pleasant. Just keep in mind they don't start serving food until 9 a.m. But there is a display of pastries and baked goods... More

Pricey, but good food costs more. Uses locally sourced foods. Local hot spot. Great foodie find. Enjoy!

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.

Thank CLNR
