Breakfast get together

Good food, low price for the selection would recommend friends to eat at this little family friendly diner. Breakfast was great!

We have tried to go here several times but each time the servers are so rude. We have a group of 4 to 10 each time we come and they have never been nice. Things happen. They do not like if you have a child either. The looks you get are cruel. Our 3 year old is very well behaved... More

This restaurant is a comfortable place to enjoy with friends if you are into comfort food at a reasonable price.It's a large restaurant with friendly greeters and equally friendly staff. They always try to tailor the dishes to your desires and never have a problem with doing that. The servers try to clue you into what's good and what they... More

The place can use some face-lifting, but they serve pretty decent meal with a very reasonable price. You are not going to have a mind-blowing dining experience, but this is a good place to come.

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
