Lucky’s cafe is a small diner tucked way in the heart of Tremont, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Cleveland. It’s a spot locals frequent in addition to “outta-towners,” privy to insider information. Named Cleveland’s best brunch in 2010, I liken the experience to gaining ” foodie street cred.”
It’s hard to believe head chef and owner, Heather Haviland, began by renting space at Lucky’s (originally a coffee house) for her pastry company and started baking out of a storage closet. In 2006, she bought into the business and expanded the menu.
I ordered the Shipwreck and suggest you do the same. A glorious hodge podge of hash browns, vegetables, eggs, and cheddar cheese with a side of pecan-covered bacon. Yes, pecan-covered. Indulge and enjoy!
The menu offers a tasty, health conscious variety with many vegan, vegetarian, and meat-lovers options.
Heads up: Consider splitting a meal and saving room for one of their renowned shakes.
