Ontario Street Cafe

Restaurant Details

Tucked into a small space just south of Public Square, Ontario Street Café is hidden in plain sight. This classic Cleveland bar has been around for longer than most regulars can recall — but then again, most have been drinking since noon. Despite the well-worn interior — and less-than-welcoming exterior — this is no dive bar. Bartenders wear white shirts and neckties. Service is prompt and professional. And the fresh-sliced deli sandwiches are out of this world. Drinks are dirt cheap but you need cash to enjoy them.
