Those were the best hot cakes I have had since I arrived. It was like being in 1950s diner with stools at bar and juke box selector on bar. The staff were superb the food delicious and wonderful friendly buzzing atmosphere will be going again. Thanks guys great job

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.

We come here at least monthly for breakfast or lunch. The food is exactly as you would hope and the service is friendly (if nothing but down-to-earth). The breakfasts are better than Bob Evans could ever produce and their sandwiches have never disappointed either.

Late last year my mom was in a local rehab after back surgery. Not pleased with the food, she asked me to bring her bacon and toast. Kleifeld's was right around the corner from her rehab, so I stopped in to hook her up with some good food. SMART MOVE!! When I told the counter lady about my mom, she... More

I have known Kleifeld's since before it opened. I am personal friends with the owner and what I say here has nothing to do with that. Everytime I get into the area (I live in SW Pennsylvania) I make it a tradition to have breakfast there. If you haven't tried it, I will highly recommend the Country Fried Steak. In... More
