Stop here for breakfast!

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out of town after spending a long weekend in Cleveland. The meals are interesting and original takes on standard breakfast fare, and diners can complement their meals with hand-crafted coffee drinks.

Came on a Monday morning with 15-16 people. This would be impossible on a weekend, when there is a line out the door. The staff did a great job of accommodating everyone and handling our several separate payments from the one large check. Food is sourced locally and/or made in house, including everything in the Reuben, which was excellent. My... More

Went to Lucky's on the advice of a local - was really happy about it because it's in a really out of the way neighborhood - not something you'd just stumble across as a tourist. The waitress was really helpful and friendly and my large cappuccino was both wonderful and the size of Texas! We enjoyed the farm to table... More

We came here for breakfast and there was a line out the door onto the sidewalk. We were told the wait was 15 minutes, so we walked around the block and when we returned, we were seated fairly quickly. There is a water dispenser outside filled with cucumber water, very refreshing. The outside tables are beautifully painted and you can... More

We dined here in 2012 and had a great meal. Still looks the same today and another great breakfast. We recommend the waffles, anything from the dessert case and still the best biscuits and gravy. Bravo Lucky's Cafe consistently good food over the years. We will be back when near Cleveland.

Fun hip place with food like I'd fix at home. We had a salad which consisted of beets, small grapes, bacon, candied walnuts, cherry tomatoes, red onions, mixed greens with buttermilk blue cheese dressing piled high on a platter. We also had the Reuben with sauerkraut and Swiss and a chicken and mole sauce enchilada. Everything had bold flavors and... More

Had a chance to introduce our neighbors to Lucky's and boy were they impressed. The coffee is the best in Cleveland and the menu items are all freshly prepared and incredible. We went for breakfast, but my neighbor had to try a cup of the corn chowder and her comment was that it was the best she ever had. We... More

I am continuously impressed with the service and food at Lucky's in Tremont. The service is fast and friendly and their food is consistent and always fresh!

Five stars for the food (90% of it), and from one to three stars for service. When we travel through Cleveland on a road trip, we like to time it to stop in at Lucky's Cafe for a meal, or a bakery treat. We watch the clock, as they close at 3:00pm (restaurant, which is small); at 5:00pm for bakery... More

If you are going for breakfast/brunch on a weekend plan to wait 20-30 minutes for a table. Great food and menu that is farm/garden to table. Many vegetables used are grown right outside. Menu had unique combinations, but not inexpensive. Homemade breads, desserts, jam, hot sauce, etc. Great coffee too. Service however was a little lacking, although extremely busy but... More
