We walked in grumpy and left Lucky! The staff was delightful and the food scrumptious! We had the Biscuits. Who knew that cheddar scallion biscuits with eggs and gravy would play? BRILLIANT! We even took some pastries for the trip home! Thanks Luckys!

Dined here in July with a group of friends. Service was friendly and attentive. I ordered the Mac & Cheese. It is the best I've had; had it here a couple of years ago on a previous trip and I've been thinking of it ever since. I also had the soup special, delicious & fresh. Everyone in my group enjoyed...

We stopped at Lucky's because it was a DDD restaurant and we needed a good breakfast on the way to Toledo. It was extremely busy and I initially had some difficulty finding someone to take my name for seating- it was a little frustrating. That being said, once my name got on the list we were able to wait in... More

Third visit to Lucky's and satisfied every time! The biscuits and gravy are by far my favorite! The biscuits are made with cheddar and chives, topped with a soft egg and smothered with a delicious sausage gravy! You are are served with potatoes and grapes. Yummy for the tummy! All food is made in house from scratch. I also enjoy... More

I usually like to try different places when I visit cities, but this is one place I keep coming back to every time I visit Cleveland. I first discovered it via DDD and still consider the mac and cheese to be the Holy Grail of mac and cheeses. Beyond the creaminess of the cheese and the perfectly cooked bacon the... More

I am a breakfast person, so a place like Lucky's is a special experience. There are usually long lines and a wait on a Saturday morning, however on this visit arriving at around 10 am we were seated immediately in the outside garden area. It had been awhile since our last visit and wanting to try something new, I ordered... More

My favorite breakfast spot in Cleveland. I have tried most of the menu items and they are all delicious. My favorite is the brûléed oatmeal- so unique, I've never had anything like it anywhere else.

I took my wife and daughter to Lucky's Cafe today for my daughter's birthday. When we arrived I told one of the clerks at the pastry counter that it was my daughter's birthday, could she please bring a carrot cupcake with a candle after our breakfast and she said no problem, we can make it happen. Never happened. I had... More
