I had high hopes for my late lunch at Cravings Cafe at 19701 Lake Road in Rocky River earlier this week. When I arrived, I found a quiet, comfortable cafe that would be a perfect setting for the piles of work I brought with me.
I looked at the menu hanging over the counter and was disappointed to discover that it was an old menu and they don't serve from anymore. The options were limited to a cold case that had several different kinds of sandwiches and wraps. I settled on a Greek yogurt and granola bar— not much of a lunch, but would be a great weekend breakfast.
For my drink, I decided on a decaf iced white mocha— usually a favorite. Unfortunately, this was made with a powder flavor, which does not translate to iced coffee. The espresso was, however, smooth and tasty— and the decaf was well labeled, so I knew my coffee wouldn’t cause me to lie awake as I watched her make it.
The environment, however, was enough to win me over. For a day when work has to get done and I need to get away from the office or home, Cravings Cafe will be a new place to stop on my agenda. They also had pumpkin spice lattes, which I will probably give a try next time I need coffee shop time.
Cravings is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the week and 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends and have a drive-thru which is convient for a quick coffee run before heading to the office. Call Cravings at 440-895-0098 for more information about open mic nights, musical acts and hosting your next event.
