Guide Review - Red Chimney Restaurant

The Red Chimney is the geographic and philosophical heart of Cleveland’s Slavic Village neighborhood. Home of the $2.25 breakfast, the friendly, family-run restaurant is bustling all day long. In addition to breakfast, which increases slightly in price after 11am, but is available all day long, the Red Chimney offers a comprehensive menu and a dozen daily lunch and dinner specials. Highlights include Polish favorites, such as stuffed cabbage, Weiner schnitzel, and potato and cheese pierogis. Pies are homemade and worth all the calories. No meal is over $10.

The Red Chimney has roomy booths, tables, and a lunch counter for diners in a hurry. Sit and read the paper and catch snippets of conversations about what’s going on in the neighborhood. You’ll find there’s the parish priest at one table, the councilman at the next, and the districts cops at a third. In fact, the news stations drop by every so often to get the pulse of the neighborhood. It’s a great place to start your walking tour of Slavic Village and Warsawza.

I am from Cleveland originally but I live in Virginia Beach now. I visit a couple of times a year and it never fails that when I am almost home I call my sister ( who still lives there) and tell her to meet me. I can't get past the Fleet exit without stopping for Chicken soup, Perogi and salad, everything is great but those are my favorites. The waitresses are all great and the owner is very friendly. You won't be disappointed...
