Always seem to make new friends and can't beat the price vs quality. Good specials and great greasy spoon.

Ordered potato pancakes and bacon. Pancakes were dry and seemed pre-made. Bacon was limp. Asked for sour cream with the potato pancakes and got about 1/3 of a ketchup container which is not enough. Requested another, same amount came. Asked for a third and waitress says you know those are 50 cents a piece! No, I did not know. If... More

Although it's a small diner it's worth the wait for a table or you can sit and eat @ the counter. Great coffee, good food and service in a quaint ambiance mixed with reasonable prices makes Kleifeld's a favorite. The restaurant has changed hands a few times over the years but it is consistently good. Downtown wouldn't be the same... More

We saw the reviews for this Diner on Trip Advisor and thought we'd stop for lunch on our next trip to Willoughby and I have to say it was pretty good. I had breakfast for lunch and my country fried steak was perfectly prepared, the home fries were fresh and tasty and my wife's omelet was also good. The service... More

Kleifeld's restaurant is a classic old-time diner. We stopped for breakfast while checking out downtown Willoughby (which is worth visiting). The service was friendly and quick. We enjoyed our meals and the price was low. They advertise "good coffee, always.". The coffee was pretty good, and the mug kept full. Do stop in, especially if you like good diners.

Just like the restaurants I had lunch in back in the 50's. Nothing has changed. Atmosphere and service was a trip down memory lane. Good for breakfast (eggs are delicious) or lunch for a burger. And all for a bargain price. A don't miss in Downtown Willoighby.

I not much of a egg person, but the eggs I hate this morning were the best! I ate all of them and I usually don't do that! The price of my meal is under $6 with coffee. The home fries are really good and chuck too.

My husband and I enjoy Sunday brunch. Good cup of Joe. I've had their Kleifeld Salad and it's great.

Kleifeld's Restaurant is an old school diner in the heart of downtown Willoughby that serves great food. The customer service is fantastic with a pleasant smile to start your day. Food is served hot and is always delicious. Coffee is refilled often. Come early to get a seat. Come hungry because they have generous size meals.

Thank Sparky651
