This is my kind of place...

I've been to this restaurant multiple times with multiple different guests. Always a good comment about the food. Desserts here are great. The tiramasu is homemade and the best I ever had. Soups are great.

lots of healthy options, I was sick of fried foods after a few days, so we ordered a salad and a wrap and shared them (and our waiter brought us extra plates). We also asked for directions, and the friendly employee took more time than expected going over the details. He even got paper and drew us a map, it... More

Great selection of well prepared food whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Good coffee and the desserts are always a hit. Service is quite good. A great alternative to the chains. I make it a point to stop by every time I'm in Cleveland - especially for a client breakfast.

This is a great place. I wish more "non-chain" diners like this existed across this country. The selection of pies and cakes as you walk in the door is amazing...if you can imagine it they have it. Great service. Reasonable prices. A "must do" the next time you are in Cleveland!

My hubby and I stopped in around 10:30pm Thursday night for coffee and dessert and I was surprised at how busy they were, good for them. Our server was friendly and kept our coffees filled. Our desserts were good but not nearly as good as they looked. I expect something better than I can make when I go out and... More

What a great find. After a long night waiting for Amtrak to pull into Cleveland, we needed breakfast. My Friends was the perfect place. Eggs Benedict was good and very reasonably priced. We were greeted at the door and our waitress was really nice and attentive with the coffee! When you walk in the first thing you notice is the... More

Stopped by this neighborhood place recently and loved the food! The service was fantastic and everyone was very friendly. Soup, salads sandwiches and entrees too. You simply cannot go wrong! Great portions and great value!

This Hungry Detective and friends had just finished up a tour watching the "The Menus" at Brothers Lounge located across the street. So being the Hungry Detective that I am I wondered away from the group in search of clues and late night food. There were the most incredible assortment of pies behind the glass...so many choices. I went with... More

It was going on 2am on our way back from Severance Hall the Cleveland Pops and the Mambo Kings. My cousin suggested My Friends where they have gone over the years and have always had good food. Well let me say that the service is good the portions are big and the flavors are spot on. You can't go wrong.... More

My wife and I came to My Friends Deli on the recommendation of a cab driver. We drove out of our way and it was so worth it. The service was amazing, quick and friendly. The coffee is excellent. I ate the corn beef hash and eggs. Wow! It was great. The wife had the egg and bacon sandwich which... More
