First thing we were told NO adjustments to the menu-everything as is! (Ok, we can pick out the tomatoes-ha!) We spent nearly $200 as most items were over $15.....biscuits and gravy, Ruben and mac and cheese were superb! I'm thinking the kids were not really "welcome" hence the attitude issue.....

Walked in on a Saturday late morning and somehow there was a vacant table! Enjoyed the asparagus omelet and a smoothie. The omelet was large (could've split it) and delicious with hints of lemon, and although the smoothie's consistency was thicker than I am used to the flavor was very good. The mac'n'cheese with the applesauce is awesome! Don't be... More

We were in Cleveland for the weekend and ended up in the Tremont area. Had never heard of Lucky's but it was a cute little place so we decided to try. The staff was fabulous. The food was really good. They have gardens that you can see out the window and are all about fresh farm to table ideas. I... More

Wow...This is the best breakfast I have had in Ohio by far. Everything is local and grown. Everything here from the food to the atmosphere is excellent. I highly recommend Lucky's Café to anyone who visits Cleveland. The outdoor seating you cannot beat-next to their gardens and under a trellis with a slew of picnic tables. Their specials change on...

Went here recently for lunch. It's a cute place. The food is quality stuff. They grow their own and but local as much as possible. With farm to table places you have to be understanding of a smaller menu. Quality over quantity. I had the mac and cheese which was quite possibly better than any I've had including my own... More

This is probably one of the better breakfast locations in the greater Cleveland area. I love coming to this nice little cafe when we come into Cleveland to take our little guy to the zoo. As far as I know they make almost everything from scratch here. So much so, I wouldn't be surprised to see the chef building the... More

This isn't your usual neighborhood greasy spoon with cheap breakfast options. Lucky's offers a great weekend brunch with high quality, locally sourced ingredients. We ordered the Biscuits and Canoewreck, and both were awesome. They also offer plenty of delicious coffee and espresso drinks, as well as the scrumptious baked goods to go with them. As an added plus, the staff... More

I wanted to love this sweet little neighborhood eatery, which struck me as the kind of laid-back place we all want to have near us, with a nice sunny patio and a not-too-complicated menu. We stopped in for a late Saturday brunch and were seated promptly. Lucky's has delicious homemade fruit sodas, which they call "fizzies", which often have cream... More

I wish I could get here more often, but it's a little out of the way for me. I love that they source so many local ingredients. Depending on the season, that may mean that it's not super veggie friendly, but the local meat and bread are so good, that I still like to go and splurge. The bakery items... More

This was my second trip to Lucky's on a Cleveland visit. I try to hit the local owned and operated restaurants that have great ratings or have made it on a TV show. This is both. The food is excellent, home made, local grown. I took a family member who lives in Cleveland and had never visited Lucky's. They were... More
