 Luxe Kitchen & Lounge
6605 Detroit Ave., Cleveland
“When it reopened after a brief closure in late 2021 (if I recall) Luxe brought on a new chef. We have been a few times since the reopening, and each time has been great. Most of the core brunch dishes and cocktails are still there, some of them enhanced and perhaps with a little more refinement. The burger now has an incredibly good aioli sauce - I had this plus a small side salad in lieu of fries. My wife had a very good shakshuka. Service has been outstanding each visit - Justin at the bar is awesome and serves a great cocktail,” Mark R. on Yelp

SOHO Chicken + Whiskey/Chicken Run
1889 W. 25th St., Cleveland 
“Came here for brunch and I had the hush puppies and gravy and I will say that it tasted great. My gf got that chicken and waffles and she loved them as well. They give you homemade biscuits and jam for a starter, on the house and our server was fantastic. He was very attentive and kind, greeted us with a smile and wished us a great rest of the day. So if anyone of you decide to hit this place up for brunch make sure you ask for Nicholas K. for your server you won't be according to his service and you won't be disappointed in the food,” Bradley H. on Yelp

Juneberry
3900 Lorain Ave., Cleveland
“My new favorite breakfast joint! Everything was A+, even the fresh toast. I got the Juneberry breakfast with sunny side up eggs and potatoes with cheese and bacon. The hubby got the amazing waffles and chicken that was out of this world crispy and savory. The kiddo got some buckwheat pancakes that also looked delicious. So cute and trendy. Will be back again!” Allison J. on Yelp

 Southern Cafe
11817 Detroit Ave., Lakewood 
“Delicious from start to finish. We came for brunch on a Saturday morning, there was no wait. We were served reasonably quickly as well. We had the soul rolls due to the rave reviews. You must try them, it's like an entire southern meal hidden in an egg roll wrapper. We also had the soulful breakfast - catfish, grits (cheese added), fried green tomatoes, and toast. My eating partner had the chicken and waffles. As I said, everything was great. The soul rolls were a definite winner though. Can't wait to try their dinner offerings,” Alyssa S. on Yelp

 Borderline Cafe
18508 Detroit Ave., Lakewood
“Nothing has changed, except some of the menu items, and I haven't been here in 7 years. Still the same AMAZING food and great hospitable service. The Chorizo Breakfast Tacos paired perfectly with homefries con queso. This is one of Lakewood's best breakfast places and it's definitely worth a try if you're in the area. Hours are only 8am-12pm during the week, but it's well worth the drive, even if you're not nearby!” Daniel O. on Yelp

 Fat Cats
2061 West 10th St., Cleveland 
“Quite a unique restaurant that's right at home here in trendy Tremont. Fat Cats occupies the ground floor of a house where multiple rooms have been converted into cozy, vintage dining areas. But the menu is anything but vintage, as you'll find plenty of global influences…A bowl of fried rice, with added poached egg, for brunch was modestly sized - sufficient if you don't happen to be roaringly hungry - and reasonably familiar, given that I'm of Chinese descent and have had my fair share of home-cooked fried rice. Especially enjoyable first thing in the morning were tea- and coffee-infused cocktails.Service was pleasant, and while the setting invites you to ease into the day slowly, the menu allows many to take chances with items they might not have tried before. Another interesting local recommendation thanks to a Yelp search!” VIncent L. on Yelp

 Le Petit Triangle
1881 Fulton Ave., Cleveland
“Had a wonderful brunch at Le Petit Triangle . We didn't have a reservation and they were busy but we got seated pretty quickly . The Chocolat is delicious ; the dark chocolate prevents it from being overly sweet and espresso was perfectly prepared . The mushroom crepe was fantastic ( get it )! Our servers checked on us frequently, to top of drinks  and check if we enjoyed the food . There were so many options on the menu I wanted to try , will definitely go again,” Mediha S. on Yelp

 The Rowley Inn

“First off the staff here is amazing! Super friendly and attentive even when they are slammed. Food is the best hands down!! We have tried multiple breakfast brunch places and this is our favorite- I do suggest going on a weekday so that you can be sure to get a seat. Today I got the specia,  a chicken fajita omelette and the hubby got the bacon wrapped tots which are 5 huge homemade tots wrapped in bacon - delicious!  One dish I highly recommend is the everything but the bagel breakfast. Make sure to come with an appetite here because you will want to finish your plate. And you will get FULL!!!” Rebecca H. on Yelp

 Edwins Too
13220 Shaker Square, Cleveland 
“Came for Saturday brunch with some friends and had a wonderful time! The food was delicious and the portions were very generous, the pictures don't do them justice! The service was great too, and they made sure we all got our drinks (the guardian cold brew was hidden away, but they provided us with regular updates and the wait was well worth it!). The drip coffee was a bit bitter for my taste, and tasted slightly burnt. But overall, no complaints from me! Will be coming again,” Elaine L. on Yelp

 Toast

“Visited Toast in the Gordon Square district for brunch. The restaurant is unassuming from the exterior but very cozy once you step inside. We ordered the breakfast sandwich with bacon and the spiced apple French toast, which was smothered in apples. The portion sizes were fantastic, and the flavor did not disappoint. We will definitely be back for dinner!” Rachel C. on Yelp
