Tacked onto the side of Cleveland’s massive West Side Market — a monolithic marketplace full of farm stands, butchers, and bakers — this chill, blue-collar joint’s simple aesthetic belies some seriously great, seriously cheap comfort food, the ingredients for which come from next door. The simple fried egg sandwich is taken up a notch with spicy bacon and a soft, fresh roll, while the normally caution-giving creamed chipped beef is a standout, with shaved sirloin doused in gravy and served over toast. The cafe isn’t just a breakfast joint. It’s Cleveland on a plate.If you've never stopped in to dine at the cafe after completing your weekly shopping, we recommend you do. Give it a try this weekend.
