Flury’s Cafe: Northeast Ohio’s best weekend brunches, breakfasts

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio – Our brunch and breakfast series continues as we check out Flury’s Cafe. Here’s a look at what to expect:

Location: It’s at Portage Trail and Front Street: 2202 Front St., Cuyahoga Falls, 330-929-1315. There’s meter parking on the street (Monday-Saturday) and a parking deck on Front Street. There’s two five-seat counters, one facing in and one facing Portage Trail. It’s a tiny place, with six tables. The original Flury’s was started in 1968 on Sackett Avenue in Cuyahoga Falls. The restaurant relocated just a couple of years ago.

Hours: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Note: It’s closed on Sunday.

Menu or buffet? Menu.

The eats: It’s mostly a traditional menu but there are some unique items; pumpkin-flavored pancakes were delicious. (Signature pancakes also include pecan, blueberry, oatmeal, banana, chocolate chip or coconut.) For the sweet-tooth crowd, old-fashioned hand-dipped shakes come in vanilla, chocolate, banana, cherry, peanut butter, blueberry and raspberry. A breakfast quesadilla tempted. There’s about 15 breakfast entrees on the menu in this quaint little place. All are under $10.

Eclectic decor: It’s a hodgepodge of kitsch: Art on the wall is for sale; a variety of prints hang throughout the space. Clocks include the Garfield tail-swinger. Six large vertical mirrors show the New York skyline. And an old-fashioned blender sits on a counter.

Don’t miss: Croissant French Toast. As good as it sounds, with a thick but very light, airy texture.

Bags o’ Java: The coffee is very good, and bags of it are sold from Pearl Coffee Co. in Akron.
