Awesome breakfast place ! It's worth finding it. The potato pancakes were amazing and the corned beef hash was also really good!

I have no clue what took me so long to try this place. It came highly recommended from many coworkers. It's super cute and located inside of the Holiday Inn. They offer a nice breakfast and lunch menu. Do yourself a favor and try the corned beef hash. You can tell they make it in house. Everyone I've encountered is friendly and the food is consistent.

It's a very small diner inside the Holiday Inn Express in Cleveland. There's not much to say about the food because it's average diner food, nothing crazy. I wanted to order bacon but noticed they had a pan with already cooked bacon on a shelf above the griddle nowhere near the heat, so I opted out of that. It's cheap and convenient if you're staying in the hotel.

Great breakfast. Great service. Great breakfast. Great service. Why did I say it twice? Because we enjoyed our meal so much the first time that we went again!

Went here for breakfast with my son and husband. Food is great. Large portions. I'm was nervous about cleanliness after reading several reviews, but it all looked clean and neat.

Five star joint!! It's your quintessential diner with everything you need and nothing that you don't! I stopped in with a colleague and got the Muffin breakfast which was an egg McMuffin with bacon and cheese and it was just so damn good! Side of was alright. My colleagues as an inlet which was large and in charge with some killer hash browns in the side. Fast forward to the next morning and I'm back! Same order except I added a side of their homemade corned beef hash, which was really good and plentiful.

Food tastes great, but watching the prep of the eggs at the front grill? OMG! I asked for sunny side up after watching the guy pick up spills from the already crusted stove surface and toss them back into the pan!!!! THEN he doesn't have enough scramble, so he throws in more RAW EGG to the cooked, instead of tossing it into a new pan and finishing that, or finishing, wiping out the burned bits, and continuing. He's a health inspector's code book dream. Meanwhile, the owner chef goes by. No comment, or correction. I brought it to their attention. They didn't seem moved, or surprised. If this is what happens out front, I really don't want to know what goes on where you can't see the prep. The coffee was pretty weak. I went with the hash and sunnys and watched the other line cook prep it. If they had done anything that I saw happen with the burrito and sandwiches that the tall guy prepared, I'd have paid and left. I teach people to cook, and listeriosis in eggs, even pasteurized commercial egg product that's around shelled eggs all over the prep surface (remember that he's picking up cooked bits off the dirty rangetop and board, where eggs and their shells are being cracked, and making contact with their gloves, AND throwing them back in!) can easily be reintroduced with that kind of sloppiness. Their attitude was as scary as his food handling. You don't let someone do that in your kitchen. Period. End of story.
