Located in the heart of Ohio City, TownHall is truly a unique dining experience. Using fresh, local ingredients, TownHall strives to offer healthy and delicious options, including gluten free and vegetarian items. Part bar, part café, the diverse options at TownHall will keep everyone happy. Try the sweet potato pancakes, and if you’re in the mood pair it with a spiked milkshake.

Around the Corner Café has coconut cakes, which is certainly one of the most unique pancake dishes in Cleveland. They mix traditional pancake batter with coconut flakes, cook it up and serve it with warm berry sauce, home fries, fruit, bacon and sausage.

The Inn on Coventry will have you missing mom’s breakfast in no time. The family oriented restaurant offers delicious, home-style meals. The lemon ricotta and orange whole-wheat pancakes are both one of a kind options that will put some zest in your morning.

Lucky’s Café is devoted to the craft of preparing fine food. Using fresh ingredients from Ohio farms, the menu is inspired by the cultures represented within the Tremont community. The Food Network’s Guy Fieri stopped by in 2009 to get some footage for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, so Lucky’s is pretty famous. Try the refreshing lemon pancakes with summer berry compote.

Sweet Melissa’s has an incredible assortment of pastries, all of which are divine. The restaurant also has extensive brunch, lunch and dinner menus. All of the pastry is made in-house, and there are now many vegan and gluten-free options to suit every dietary need. We recommend the apple cinnamon pancakes, served with pure maple syrup.

Come for the food, stay for the art. The artwork on the walls in Grumpy’s Café is constantly changing, so you probably won’t see the same pieces twice. The brunch menu has lots of pancake options, but we recommend the buckwheat and walnut.

A Cleveland landmark, Joe’s Deli is known for their (very) generous portions and for their Lebanese cuisine. Joe’s moved to a bigger building in 2012, so the wait time for a table in the wildly popular restaurant has significantly decreased. The classic blueberry pancakes are so good that you’ll want to eat the whole thing, but you probably won’t be able to finish it!

Owned and operated by two Lakewood sisters, Borderline Café has an extensive, Southwest inspired breakfast menu. While items like the Avocado eggs Benedict have a dedicated fan base, the pancakes are absolutely delicious. We are partial to the chocolate chip.

No matter what you want for breakfast, the Original Pancake House has it, and in plenty of varieties. Try the bacon pancakes, with the bacon in them rather than on the side. Genius!

Michael Symon is a fan of the corned beef hash at Big Al’s Diner, but the menu is packed with every kind of comfort food imaginable. Try the massive blueberry pancakes. We dare you to finish the whole thing.

First Watch opens at 7:00 a.m. and serves up some of the freshest meals imaginable. The restaurant is one of the pioneers of the “daytime café” concept. The carrot cake pancakes are a healthy, fresh breakfast-dessert combination that’s sure to start your day off right.
