Love this place, favorite GF grilled cheese!

I absolutely would recommend Tommy's to ANYONE, especially if your vegan or gluten free. I often frequent Tommy's with friends, family and have order take out during workday lunches. I must say, my favorite choice is the Quigley (it's a grilled cheese with tomatoes and green peppers). I always... read more

Admittedly, I view Tommy's with nostalgic eyes. I've been going to this place with close friends and first dates since I was in high school, just like many who live in the Cleveland Heights area. However, it isn't just the location and familiarity that keep customers coming back. Tommy's has an extensive menu of classic entrees, original assemblages, and an... More

We were looking forward to going here because it is vegetarian friendly but came away a bit disappointed. The food was okay but pretty common place. Nothing bad but not somewhere I would go out of the way to eat at again.

In Coventry neighbourhood of Cleveland another great independent restaurant...we so enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, innovative menu items that we returned again during our visit...please consider the spinach pie, something different.. Not sure how they do it but the crispest bacon I have ever had !!

Great place but I don't believe in going where I'm not wanted. My foreparents were not Civil Rights nor Pro-Black warriors. They were Black Liberation Warriors. They taught us to respect other people's right to entertain who they wanted in their establishments. That's why I was alarmed when I ordered two of their delicious meat pies and found the word...

The best milkshake that I have ever had. Chocolate peanut butter is fabulous. Also had a meat pie with lamb, beef and grilled onions and provolone chees.

Tommy's is almost an institution, although they would resent being called that, in Cleveland Height's Coventry neighborhood. For those unfamiliar with Cleveland (actually, this is well within Cleveland Heights), Coventry is one of a small group of off-beat, free spirit (think Haight-Ashbury) neighborhoods in this midwestern city. Tommy's has been the heart of Coventry for something over three decades, and... More

I have been going to Tommy's for many years. Tommy's is actually the first place I got tofu. I had moved out of Cleveland about 14 years ago so when I visited this was a usual stop because I have been a vegetarian for almost all of that time and a vegan in the last year. There is plenty of... More

Very thankful to the other reviewers that recommended Tommy's! We stopped at Tommy's for lunch before continuing our trip out to Chicago. Everything was fabulous! There is something on the menu for everyone, whether a vegetarian or not. So many reviewers said to try their milkshakes so we all got one to go -- so surprised at the nice souvenir... More
