    has anyone been to the new EUCLID TAVERN yet?

    i heard they cleaned out the well loved (by me anyway!) but long closed old music dive bar, yupped it up and have a food menu. is that so?

      around the corner from tommy's at the intersection of coventry and euclid heights blvd is the inn on coventry, which is another solid breakfast choice.

          People don't do a lot of weekday breakfasts so you'd be fine either place but I prefer the food at Inn on Coventry.

            big al's gets pretty busy, but i've never had too long of a wait there (and it's worth it).

              Hi Is Big Als easy to spot (storefront)? Meaning is it a big place (diner-ish with booths and lots of tables) or is it a small place?

                it's a smallish place. the address is 12600 larchmere.

          I like Tommy's on Coventry for breakfast but that is not a traditional diner style breakfast. They offer many healthy and vegetarian options. It is about 5 minutes from CWRU, up Mayfield road to Coventry.

            Hi Kelli2006. What do you mean can I ask that it is not traditional? Do you have like eggs and stuff? Thanks

              Tommys offers many vegetarian options, but they do offer eggs bacon and sausage. Rachel Ray visited Tommy's during $40.00 a day in Cleveland, but please don't hold it against them.

                HAHA I wont. Thanks again.

            will you be driving or walking? the excellent big al's diner on larchmere is an 8-10 minute drive (if that) from cwru.

              While the original poster might need only one or the other (drive or walk), if you have suggestions for both, I'd appreciate it. I'm going to be at Case in October.

                i'm not a full-time resident, so my suggestions are limited. i'm not sure about good stuff currently within walking distance, for instance. hopefully some of the other cleveland regulars can chime in.
