“Excellent”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I am actually from the Willoughby area. I have visited many times and enjoy it every time. The coffee is roasted to perfection and the best in the area. Food is authentic and thoroughly enjoyable- goulash,wienerschnitzel,cabbage rolls,stuffed peppers- you name it, it doesn't get any better. Has a great selection of European wines and beer- not to be missed with any meal. John and Anna are always friendly and go out of there way everytime to make sure you are completely satisfied. 5 stars all the way around!

“Our Sunday afternoon Tradition”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

I can't rave about Cafe Europa Bistro. We live, literally, right across the street, and shortly after we moved in, we decided to go out for lunch on a Sunday. I was tempted in by the sign outside advertising the daily specials of wiener schnitzel and goulash and paprikash. The food was DELICIOUS, the deserts all to die and the owner was so friendly and helpful. We have been back many times since then, and he always remembers us. The prices are extremely reasonable, especially for the quality of the food. I don't think I've ever had a nicer cut of veal. Whenever we have friends stay with us, we make a point to take them there

“Authentic and wonderful!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Stopped for lunch while passing through Cleveland. After having been unable to find a good cup of coffee on our journey to the east coast and back we happened to find Cafe Europa. The owners create all the dishes themselves and the desserts (loved em!) all hand made and delicious. They even have a hand full of vegetarian selections which we also enjoyed. The coffee is outstanding as well, with a variety of blends to choose from. The authentic European cuisine and outstanding coffee are worth the trip. We had a wonderful experience, the highlight of our dining experiences on our long journey. Highly Recommended!

“Great European Food in a strip mall - WOW!”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We couldn't believe the meals we shared at this hidden European gem. We were visiting the area and our friends had been there for lunch, but not dinner. We thought we were back in Vienna!!! The food was all home made
the wine and beers were from Europe and is was just WONDERFUL. John the owner and his wife, the cook, couldn't have done it any better. We shared 5 meals between us and they were all great. You won't be disappointed at all. It's hard to believe that such a great place to dine is located in a stip-mall. The other thing is that is was very inexpensive. Two of us ate and had 2 drinks for $38.00.
