Very nice little cafe. Still has counter service as well as a few tables. I had a really good salad, not something I usually expect out of this style cafe.

Old style, small restaurant with metal stools by the bar and very interesting old signs on the wall. Breakfast was great, omelets, chocolate chip or banana pancakes made us very full and happy.On Saturday morning people were waiting for a table and I understand why.

Always drive by and sure smells good. Decided to go in and give it a try. For the money it was not bad but the food was not all that great. Small inside and always crowded. I would not eat there again.

Great greasy spoon diner. Nothing fancy in terms of food but service is good and food is hot and fresh. Low prices make this tiny joint a great value. Don't expect anything fancy. Quarters get tight fast during breakfast and lunch rush. Don't wait for dinner, they don't serve it! Only open for breakfast and lunch.

My wife and I, along with our son and 2 grandsons, stopped by Kleifeld's Restaurant for breakfast before a busy day visiting Cleveland's museums. Kleifeld's is just what one hopes for when looking for a local joint/diner for solid, quality food at a very reasonable price. Our little group ordered a variety of items from the menu... There was two... More

A wonderful greasy spoon diner that can seat just under 40 that serves both breakfast and lunch Monday through Sunday. Everything is cheap and comes out fast and hot! The bacon and sausage links were outstanding. I have driven past this place for over 30 years, I'm glad I finally stopped in.
