Lucky's Cafe

New Lucky's Logo
Looking for somewhere to have Brunch in Cleveland.  We went to an amazing cafe in Tremont.  Lucky's Cafe is located at 777 Starkweather Ave. CLE, OH.   I could rave for hours on this place.  Let me share some highlights with you on why this will become a regular spot for our family. For starters my husband and daughter are in love with Diner's, Drive ins and Dives with Guy Fieri and he stopped by here.  That's a small subnote to the fact that we live on the westside of Cleveland, so dining in Tremont is very familiar to our family.  We knew that Lucky's Cafe was in Tremont on Starkweather, but weren't exactly sure where.  As we were driving down Starkweather Avenue my husband said, "I think it's up on the right."  The line out the door and down the street was definitely an obvious sign of Lucky's popularity.  We parked and walked up to the entrance where we were welcomed by the hostess and put on the waiting list.  She told us it would be about 25 minutes and we could sit on the bench inside, bench outside, or hang out at the picnic tables.  There were menus and ice water with cucumbers available while we waited.  The menu is double sided with a small single sided sheet for specials.  The menu was very easy to review with enough choices for everyone.  We waited about 17 minutes and were called to be seated.   Our waiter, Patrick, was excellent.  He welcomed us to Lucky's and gave us a quick synopsis of where the food on the menu originates.  Now I'm not talking about dish number 4 is Italian and dish number 11 is Polish.  He said,"can you see out that back window, that's one of our cooks picking produce for the meals.  If it doesn't come from the onsite garden it comes from within a 100 mile radius of the restaurant, to be as fresh to plate as possible." When he was done he took our drink and brunch order and about 12 minutes later we had:

Biscuits: Cheddar scallion biscuits topped with soft scrambled eggs and sausage gravy. Served with hash brown potatoes and grapes. (Food Network's Guy Fieri ate this)
Shipwreck: A blissful blend of hash browns, eggs, seasonal veggies, bacon, and cheddar cheese, served with house-baked como toast & fresh fruit.
Baked Mac-N-Cheese: Cheddar, brie, parmesan, and mozzarella cheeses, baked with pasta and cream topped with brioche bread crumbs and served with house-made apple sauce. (Food Network's Guy Fieri ate this)

We also added a plate of the Pecan Bacon

We passed plates around the table to get a chance to sample eveything and we were not disappointed.  The food was delicious.  The staff and food were so impressive, I believe we may be joining them next Sunday.  Everyone looked to love being at work and everyone on staff spoke to us and checked our table for refills, and to clear plates, not only our waiter, Patrick. We are happy to support a local business that buys from local farmers and creates local jobs helping our local economy.  Thank you, Lucky's Cafe.  We will be back!
