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... read 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

This is the third time we've been to Lucky's and it's always excellent. They have their own garden right outside the door and grow as much as they can for their recipes right there. If you want more breakfast options go on a weekend for their larger brunch menu. This was our first weekday visit so the wait was much... More

I stopped in for a coffee and a snack and while the place looked good I made my order and the young server didn't understand my order to I repeated it twice and then I had to explain my beverage, which I shouldn't have to do if you're a barista, but he was polite about it and then he didn't...
