This Restaurant was excellent! Very clean,exceptional food,friendly service. We travel to Cleveland every August and can't believe we have not found this gem before. The early bird breakfast for $4.99 was a great deal and my husband's omelette was fantastic too. 10/10 restaurant!!

Hotspot is a great restaurant for breakfast. Nothing fancy but good food. We had a large party and they handled our orders and separate checks with ease. Everyone's dishes looked good. My American burrito was delicious.
