9 Farm-to-Table Restaurants You've Got to Try Around Northeast Ohio

Farm-to-Table Restaurants - Northeast Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Did you know that food and agriculture is the largest industry in Ohio? With more than 77,000 farms comprising nearly 14 million acres, the Buckeye State is a national leader in more than 35 product sectors.

The highest concentration of farms is in Northeast Ohio, so it's no surprise that the region is rich in farm-to-table dining. Enjoy food the way it was meant to be eaten at these innovative restaurants around Cleveland, Akron, and Canton.

Wolf Creek Tavern

3044 Wadsworth Rd., Norton, OH 44203

While farm-to-table may be a modern concept, Wolf Creek Tavern keeps one foot in the past. The bar, housed in a historic 1830s building, honors their speakeasy legacy with Prohibition-era cocktails made from the original recipes. Wolf Creek's food menu features upscale tavern favorites such as burgers, pasta, and fish and chips made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Follow them on Facebook for news on the weekly burger-and-beer pairings. The kitchen is open 4 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 4 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Forage Public House

14600 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, OH 44107

Farm-to-table meets gastropub at Forage Public House, a hip neighborhood restaurant focused on sustainable ingredients. Taco filling options include grilled Amish chicken, crispy walleye, and vegan cauliflower. Breakfast dishes, such as the popular Hash N Cure with beef brisket, are served all day long. And what would a gastropub be without creative cocktails like Blood Sangria and Black Walnut Manhattan? Forage Public House is open daily from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. with extended hours until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Hide-A-Way Buffalo Grill

4021 Mahoning Rd., NE, Canton, OH 44705

Hide-A-Way Buffalo Grill was actually ahead of the farm-to-table curve. Back in 1983, the family-owned restaurant used buffalo burgers as a novelty to build interest in their newly opened business. The high-protein, low-fat meat proved so popular that it's now the restaurant's signature item. Today, buffalo has found its way into menu items such as stew, meatloaf, and even chef's salad. With these dishes accounting for 40 percent of sales, the restaurant goes through one entire buffalo per month. Carryout is easy with the dedicated to-go window. Hours are 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The Blue Door Cafe & Bakery

1970 State Rd., Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44223

When you're recognized by the New York Times, you must be doing something right. In 2020, The Blue Door Cafe & Bakery made the Times' list of "Best Brunch in Every State." This charming, European-style cafe features a half-ton Alsatian bread oven and an antique pine pastry case. Fans drive from all around Northeast Ohio to enjoy dishes such as chicken and waffles as well as their croissants, Danishes, sticky buns, and other delectable baked goods. Order ahead for pickup at their convenient drive-thru window. The Blue Door is open until 2 p.m. daily, with baked goods and coffee available starting at 6 a.m. while brunch begins at 8 a.m.

Nosh Curbside

5929 Darrow Rd., Hudson, OH 44236

What's better than a hot, home-cooked meal? How about a hot, home-cooked meal prepared by a professional? Whether you want to try something new or you just need a break, Nosh Curbside offers fresh, made-to-order meals delivered right to your car. Mix and match entrées and sides such as vegan meatballs, gouda mac & cheese, cast iron beets, and their signature chicken parmesan. Feeding the family? Check out the dinners for four. Dishes are available Thursday through Saturday, with ordering from 4:30 p.m. - 8 p.m. for pickup from 5 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Flying Fig

2523 Market Ave., Cleveland, OH 44113

Karen Small, owner and executive chef of Flying Fig, is truly committed to supporting Northeast Ohio. In 1999, Karen opened the eatery and its companion market next door as a way of contributing to downtown's rebirth. Build your own cheese and charcuterie board or enjoy some variety with several of the sharable small plates. Their signature sandwiches, including the popular grilled eggplant, make a perfect grab-and-go lunch for carryout. Lunch and dinner hours are 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, with brunch served on weekends from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. 

Aurelia 

16 N. Main St, Chagrin Falls, OH 44022

James Balchak, the classically-trained chef at Aurelia, explains the restaurant's culinary attitude in five words: "I believe in Northeast Ohio." Aurelia's menu changes daily to make use of the freshest meat, seafood, and produce available from local suppliers. A typical dish might include fried brown basmati rice with organic carrots and broccolini along with Lake Erie perch or walleye. Chef Balchak sums up Aurelia's offerings as, "honest food and drink." Order online for curbside pickup or local delivery. Dinner is served 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with brunch served 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on weekends. 

Butcher & Sprout

1846 Front St., Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221

In case the name doesn't give it away, signs both inside and outside Butcher & Sprout proclaim their farm-to-table philosophy. The family-friendly bar and restaurant is known for its gourmet burgers, made with all-Ohio, grass-fed, non-GMO beef. If you prefer, substitute a chicken, turkey, or plant-based patty. Start with an order of pickle fries, which many customers find irresistible. Efficient diners go for the Colossal Bloody Mary, topped with bacon, pickle fries, celery, and a four-ounce cheeseburger. Butcher & Sprout is open 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. - 11 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. Sunday.

Osso Farm Restaurant

9145 Old State Rd., Hambden, OH 44024 

At Osso Farm Restaurant, owners Scott and Tara Webster take the concept of farm-to-table one step further. Their pasture-to-plate menu includes scratch-made dishes using ingredients from the family's own Flying W Farm, where the restaurant is located. As one satisfied diner recently put it, the food is so fresh "you'll be daydreaming about your meal weeks after you've eaten it." With Angus and Wagyu steaks, gourmet burgers, and authentic BBQ, there's something on the menu for all tastes. Reservations are highly recommended. Hours are 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

A post shared by Scratch Restaurant (@eatfrom_scratch) on

Nick and Brad, owners of Scratch, set out to create a menu revolving around the traditional breakfast staple of bacon. After experimenting with ways to cure and smoke pork from scratch, the pair recognized the value of applying their creative approach to the rest of their offerings, which is how the restaurant's name was born. Hence, pancakes were transformed into tiramisu pancakes with coffee liqueur reduction, maple whipped cream, and chocolate ganache, while French toast is made from bread pudding and offered in flavors of blueberry or banana and bourbon caramel. Scratch is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

If you prefer a savory breakfast, Waffle O Waffle has that covered too. The whimsical and unexpected options include "pizzas" with pepperoni, bacon pickle, or BBQ chicken.

14 Essential Cleveland Area Brunch Spots

In our opinion, brunch is the most important meal of the day. This half-breakfast, half-lunch chow down allows you to reap the benefits of both meals at the lazy hour of 11 a.m. (or later) on a weekend.  Thankfully, we're surrounded by a number of top-notch restaurants in the Cleveland area, so when the weekend comes around, there's no shortage of options. Check out this list of our favorites and get to brunching!   

Astoria Café and Market

5417 Detroit Avenue Brunch in Cleveland While Astoria Café is a great place to dine in the evening, we also love their weekend brunch. Full of unique dishes like a gyro omelet with seasoned lamb or a brunch board that comes full of quail eggs, rosemary ham, double-smoked bacon and Ohio maple syrup pearls, the menu never disappoints. Plus, their Greek Iced Frappé is spiked with Bailey's Irish Cream. Can you think of a better way to start your morning?  

Barroco Grill

12718 Larchmere Boulevard | 12906 Madison Avenue, Lakewood | 287 Crocker Park Boulevard, Westlake  This popular eatery started off as a Latin-themed café serving corny arepas. Today, they have locations on both sides of town and have broadened their culinary horizons. During the weekend, you can also enjoy cachapas, Venezuelan-style sweet corn pancakes stuffed with cheese and other fixings along with build-your-own egg plates and Colombian-inspired sides.   

Big Al's Diner

12600 Larchmere Boulevard Big Al's serves the best breakfast in town all day long. This hometown diner doesn't bother with aesthetics or #InstaWorthy dishes. Instead, they serve satellite dish-sized pancakes, mouthwatering biscuits and gravy and mountains of hashbrowns.   

Brewnuts

Brewnuts is a collaboration between two Cleveland locals, Shelley and John Pippin, who gave up their full-time jobs to pursue their passion for beer, donuts and their hometown. The shop is a combination of a charming corner bakery and your favorite happy hour spot, offering local craft brews alongside craft-beer-based, small-batch donuts. The beer pairs perfectly with any one of their unique donuts, from maple bacon to those topped with Captain Crunch cereal.  

Cleveland Vegan

17112 Detroit Avenue, Lakewood Vegans love brunch too which is why we're so glad to have Cleveland Vegan. Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, they create incredible dishes without the use of animal products. Committed to being both environmentally friendly and health-conscious, they'll work with you on any and all dietary needs — both in the cafe and through their catering service. They offer some truly life-changing vegan brunch options such as delicious avocado toast, cheesy mashed potato cakes, homemade biscuits with pepper gravy and a shiitake Benedict.   

Crop Bistro

2537 Lorain Avenue Crop Bistro recently landed on a list of the best restaurants in Ohio by Thrillist— and with its fresh take on American cuisine, there's no mystery as to why! Their decadent, high-end brunch spread includes a buffet complete with a carving station for house-roasted prime rib and ham as well as a chilled seafood section bursting with shrimp cocktail, snow crab, lobster salad and more. There's even a dessert station for those of us with a sweet tooth. This all-you-can-eat experience is offered every Saturday and Sunday and costs $39 for adults or $20 for children ages five to 12.   

Dante Next Door

2247 Professor Avenue Cleveland Brunch

This casual Tremont restaurant only serves brunch and lunch, offering menus that feature fantastic morning-to-mid-afternoon dishes. We recommend the bananas foster French toast, which is covered in a banana compote and vanilla cream. You also don't want to miss their famous shrimp and grits or the pasta carbonara frittata.   

Flour

34205 Chagrin Boulevard, Moreland Hills  Flour is a must-visit Cleveland brunch destination for their eggs Benedict alone. They put a perfectly poached egg on top of a crispy English muffin and cover it in creamy hollandaise. And if that hasn't got you salivating already, what about that sweet Nutella French toast smothered in maple syrup, peanut butter powder and strawberries?   

Lucky's Café

777 Starkweather Avenue This coffee shop turned restaurant in Tremont has truly redefined the meaning of cooking from scratch. Here, you'll find the epitome of comfort food, including fluffy cheddar scallion biscuits topped with sausage gravy and a classic Reuben with house-brined corned beef. The beloved cafe sources as much as it can from local farmers and vendors, grows its veggies in the garden out back, and makes all of the bread and pastries in house. Does breakfast get any better? We think not.

Luna Bakery Café puts out delectable baked goods all week long, making it the perfect spot to run in for a quick, buttery croissant and a cup of coffee before work. One of our favorite weekend activities is spending the mid-morning relaxing in their cozy café with a foamy latté and a light bite. No matter when you stop by Luna's, you should definitely try their homemade granola which will ruin the store-bought stuff forever.   

The South Side

2207 West 11th Street  For a legendary Bloody Mary, you have to visit The South Side in Tremont. They start pouring their liquid gold at 10:30 a.m. along with a side of perfectly greasy chicken and waffles. If you're looking for something slightly lighter, try the jalapeno cheddar toast or their brunch cobb which features earthy greens, bacon, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, shredded provolone and grilled chicken.   

Tommy's

1824 Coventry Road, Cleveland Heights  Soon after opening as a soda fountain in 1972, Rolling Stone voted Tommy's the "Best Milkshake East of the Mississippi" and the menu has stayed the same ever since. Their breakfast menu has something for everyone, no matter your preference, including a few wacky dishes you can't find anywhere else. The Elsie, for example, features a triple-decker sandwich saddled with two fried eggs, bacon, cheese, peanut butter (yes, peanut butter) and mayo.   

Urban Farmer

1325 East 6th Street Brunch in Cleveland Urban Farmer is one of the most famous restaurants in the greater Cleveland area, so it should be no surprise to anyone that it's on this list. This popular eatery combines a farm-to-table menu with a cosmopolitan setting to create an unforgettable eating experience. On the weekend you can enjoy their brunch menu, full of decadent choices like brioche French toast and beef bourguignon hash.   

West Side Market Café

1979 West 25th Street Cleveland's beloved West Side Market is the oldest indoor and outdoor market space in the area — and a must-see destination for out-of-town guests. The market itself is housed in a historic, architecturally stunning building, and features local farmers, chefs, cheesemakers, butchers, artisans and, unsurprisingly, one of the best brunch spots in town! Not only are there Bloody Marys, but there's also an affordable breakfast full of brunch favorites (eggs, home fries and toast) for just $5.  

Bon Appétit!

The Best Columbus Area Brunch Spots That Should Be On Your List

Nothing soothes the soul quite like brunch. This half-breakfast, half-lunch feast allows you to enjoy perfectly poached eggs, avocado toast, savory hashes, mimosas and more — all at the lazy hour of 11 a.m. (or later). Plus, it's the perfect excuse to catch up with friends and loved ones! We are surrounded by a number of top-notch restaurants in the Columbus area, so when the weekend comes around, there is no shortage of options! We rounded up 11 brunch destinations that should be on your Columbus bucket list. So dig in, because in our opinion, brunch is the most important meal of the week.  

Copious

Facebook | 520 South High Street, Columbus Brunch hours: Weekends | 10 a.m.-2 p.m. In case the name didn't give it away already, you can expect large portions at this Brewery District staple! Copious serves up dishes to feed the soul as well as the body — with options like hearty chicken and waffles with Fresno chili maple syrup, steak and eggs with béarnaise sauce, and hash with short rib, peppers and veggies. Get your dish with a side of white cheddar grits — you won't regret it.  

The Guild House

With wooden beams, colorful chandeliers, high ceilings and white leather booths, the space is nothing short of breathtaking. Of course, the food is the real star of the show. Come dig into flavorful brunch classics crafted with seasonal ingredients and served up with an inventive twist. If you're looking to indulge a bit, the lobster and eggs is spot on!  

Katalina's

Situated in Columbus' Short North neighborhood, Katalina's serves up inventive comfort food in colorful digs. The menu is "Latin-leaning and Southern-slanted," and each dish comes packed with flavor! Everything is fantastic, but make sure to grab an order of pancake balls to share with the table — they're worth the hype.  

Lindey's

Facebook | Instagram | 169 East Beck Street, Columbus Brunch hours: Weekends | 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Lindey's isn't just a favorite among Columbus residents, it's an institution. The iconic restaurant has served the German Village neighborhood for decades and features an idyllic patio alongside an epic menu. For brunch, you can taste dishes like crab cakes and hash browns topped with a fried egg and hollandaise, or the lemon ricotta pancakes with Ohio maple syrup.  

Milestone 229

Facebook | 229 Civic Center Drive, Columbus Brunch hours: Sunday | 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Enjoy a flavorful brunch (and maybe a mimosa or two) while overlooking the fountain on the Scioto Mile. There's a reason that Milestone 229 snagged a spot on our list of Columbus' best restaurant patios, but there isn't a bad seat in the house. The brunch menu features mouthwatering options like breakfast nachos, beef brisket hash, bacon and egg pizza, and blueberry pound cake French toast.  

Nada

Tacos for breakfast? Why not? Nada serves up authentic Mexican street food in a bright, colorful and vibrant space. Stepping into the restaurant for brunch on the weekend is a wonderful way to start the day. Once you're settled at a table, you can order a sparkling breakfast cocktail and peruse the menu — featuring Mexican poutine, chorizo and egg enchiladas, scrumptious eggs Benedict and an impressive selection of street tacos!  

Standard Hall

Facebook | Instagram | 1100 North High Street, Columbus Brunch hours: Weekends | 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

Bloody Mary aficionados shouldn't miss the build-your-own Bloody Mary bar at Standard Hall — the offerings are nothing short of epic! Pick your alcohol of choice and spice it up with your desired mix of traditional, spicy or signature tomatillo, a selection of house-blended rims, and a delicious spread of toppings. If you try hard enough, you might be able to make a meal of it! Of course, if your brunch bevvy doesn't fill you up, there are plenty of delicious menu offerings to satisfy a wide range of taste buds.  

Skillet

Facebook | 410 Whittier Street, Columbus Brunch hours: Wednesday-Sunday | 8 a.m.-2 p.m. This brunch-centric eatery serves up seasonal, farm-to-table comfort food with inventive twists. The menu is ingredient-driven, which means that it changes from time to time to incorporate the best in-season flavors, but you'll always find a varied selection of pastries, egg dishes, grits, biscuits and hashes that will satisfy the soul.  

The Table

Facebook | Instagram | 21 East Fifth Avenue, Columbus Brunch hours: Weekends | 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

A post shared by The Table (@thetablecmh) on

Step into this cozy yet modern space to enjoy some of the best, locally sourced fare in the 614! The Table offers a wide variety of globally inspired dishes, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. We are particularly fond of the shakshuka, a North African-style dish with poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce with charred veggies, feta, black olives and pita. And the Dutch Baby — a gigantic, fluffy, egg-based pancake dish — shouldn't be overlooked either!  

The Whitney House

Facebook | Instagram | 666 High Street, Worthington Brunch hours: Weekends | 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The boozy breakfast cereals at The Whitney House are reason enough to make the short trek to Worthington for brunch. Fruit Loops, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cookie Crisp and Cocoa Puffs are all served alongside milk and a careful selection of complementary liqueurs that take your meal to the next level. Order one of these as an appetizer and explore the rest of the menu offerings, which include rustic and soul-warming dishes crafted from fresh and local ingredients.  

Wolf's Ridge Brewing

Facebook | Instagram | 215 North 4th Street, Columbus Brunch hours: Weekends | 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Wolf's Ridge Brewing made our list of the best breweries in Columbus, but flavorful craft beer isn't the only thing this place does right. The brunch menu, featuring items like confetti doughnuts, beef tartare, poutine, tartines and Benedicts, is on point as well. We are fans of the Toad in the Hole, which boasts eggs from Copia Farm, Applewood smoked bacon, fingerling potatoes, stout cheese sauce and brioche. It's perfection — and it pairs very well with a beermosa!  

Enjoy your meal!
