A Slice of Happiness: 4 Cleveland pizza spots we love

Whether you like it covered in meats or vegetables, smothered in red sauce, topped with gooey cheese, dripping with garlic, sprinkled with parmesan, deep dish, or thin-crusted; most of us can agree that pizza is a gift bestowed upon us by the food gods. But not all pizza is created equal, and it’s our mission to provide you with the information you need to satisfy your deepest darkest pizza cravings. There are hundreds of quality pizza joints in The Land, but here are a few of our favorite places you have to try.

  1. Il Rione: We are listing this place first because it is run by two of the friendliest dudes we’ve ever met, and that isn’t even the best thing about this place. Their pizza is truly incredible  — the sauce is so good that the cheese is just an added bonus to the ensemble, and the crust is crisped perfection. We love their location in Gordon Square that was renovated from a literal crack house into a chic yet cozy hang with an awesome patio. Il Rione means “the neighborhood” and we just love the way they make you feel like family whenever you stop by.
  2. Citizen Pie: Self-professed “Pizza for the people”, Citizen Pie offers brick oven-bakedcitizen pie Neopolitan pizza at their two locations in Ohio City and Waterloo. In true Italian style, the crust is thin and soft but durable enough to support the weight of mozzarella cheese and heart toppings. Order your pizza (and perhaps a bottle of wine) at the counter, then relax and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and pop art selection.
  3. Edison’s: Everyone loves pizza by the slice! Edison’s may not have a reputation for being the best pizza to eat at 2 AM, but I can tell you first-hand that this pizza is good at all times of the day. Sober or not, this pizza is delicious. One amazing thing about Edison’s is that they go ALL out with the toppings, I’m pretty sure they’re on their way to setting a record for how many pepperonis can fit on one slice of pizza. This pizza is gooey and greasy and best drizzled with the honey packets that they provide. Enjoy it at the bar, playing a game of pool, or on their laid-back patio in the warmer months!
  4. Harlow’s: I didn’t know how beautiful pizza could be until I visited Harlow’s. Known for their extremely aesthetic space (and Instagram) and quality ingredients, Harlow’s is sure to make you a believer. They have a small menu with five pizzas to choose from and no substitutions allowed, but only because they have perfected the art of pizza making and you just can’t mess with art. Harlow’s also happens to tout one of the most aesthetic patios in Lakewood. You may go to Harlow’s for the gram but you’ll stay for the pizza and refreshing cocktails.

That’s all for now but we are already planning our next ‘za post! What pizza joint should we check out next?

6 Reasons You Should Move to Cleveland

So you’re considering moving to Cleveland? I’m not surprised. Cleveland has a lot to offer, despite what you may have heard. It is being reborn as a vibrant city buzzing with possibility, alive with hope. Here are a few reasons why Cleveland is an awesome place to live right now.

  1. The cost of living is extremely low, about 12% lower than the national average. If you are looking to live an urban lifestyle and have access to all the fun amenities that come with it but don’t want to shell out 3,000 dollars a month for a studio apartment, Cleveland may be right for you.  Right now as I browse through apartments.com I am looking at a beautiful one bedroom, one bath, 1200 sq/ft loft in one of our more expensive neighborhoods for $1250. Wouldn’t it be nice to actually be able to afford to enjoy living in the city instead of living paycheck to paycheck for an apartment the size of a closet?
  2. THE FOOD. Listen, I know everyone claims this about their city. But seriously, Cleveland has some truly incredible restaurants. Maybe it’s because we’re smack dab in the middle of farm country so produce and meats never have to travel very far, or because we’re located on a lake giving us access to plenty of fresh seafood… err lake-food? You may not have 50 options for each category like you would in New York or Chicago, but we guarantee you will never run out of delicious restaurants to try if you move to Cleveland.
  3. Speaking of the lake, did we mention that we aren’t landlocked? Maybe it’s just us, but nothing soothes the soul like looking out over a huge body of water. Lake Erie might not be a swimmer or surfer’s dream, (although we have seen some pretty dedicated surfers shredding at Edgewater) but it sure is nice to get out on a boat or a jet-ski or just sit and have dinner on one of our many waterfront patios. There are a ton of beaches that you can take the kids or your dog to, or maybe just sit and enjoy the sunset over the lake. It’s a little piece of paradise on a warm summer day.
  4. Have a bit of wanderlust? Another great thing about Cleveland is its location in relation to other US cities. Living in Cleveland we are able to do weekend trips in so many other fun places. We are a short drive from Pittsburgh, Chicago, Indianapolis, Columbus, Buffalo, Detroit, and Cincinnati. If you’re willing to go a bit farther, we are just about an eight-hour drive from New York City, Nashville, St. Louis, and Ashville, NC. Living in a post-Covid world, having so many cities you can visit without hopping on a plane is a huge benefit.
  5. The people are SO nice here. Maybe it’s the midwest mindset, or they’ve been underdogs their entire life, from previously humbling sports teams to being dubbed “mistake on the lake”, Clevelanders have not been fed with a silver spoon. But what has come from that is a sense of brotherhood and kinsmanship that I’ve never experienced elsewhere. They are cheering for Cleveland, and in order to do that, they have to cheer for each other. There is a mindset of collaboration over competition here because when Cleveland succeeds, we all win. If you’re coming from LA or NYC — the level of politeness will blow your mind.
  6. Afraid to live in the city because you don’t want to feel trapped in a concrete jungle? You MUST experience the Cleveland Metroparks. There are 18 reservations with over 100 hiking trails and nearly 23,000 acres of unadulterated nature await you. The Emerald Necklace is the perfect place to unwind and lose yourself in the great outdoors.

There are so many other perks of living in CLE that are coming to mind as I close out this list.  The beautiful architecture, the shops, the Indians games, the fact that there is almost ZERO traffic here, as well so many other amazing things. If I’m being honest, though, reading this list is only but a step in the right direction. To experience the grit and the glory that is the Sixth City and to truly understand the quality of life that awaits you here, you have to come to see for yourself. We may just surprise you.

Healthy Restaurants in Cleveland with @bethandfood

If you follow along with Beth Opfer you know that she is a local MS, RDN, LDN, and a certified QT (get it?) But seriously, what I love most about Beth (apart from her sweet personality) is her laid-back philosophy that encourages everyone to find the balance between eating healthy and giving yourself the grace to indulge in the foods you love! Her goal is to inspire others to feel their best – not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well.  You can find Beth on Instagram at @bethandfood or follow along with her blog, www.bethandfood.com! I hope you get as much value from this list of her favorite healthy eats in Cleveland as I did. 

Salt : There’s a reason Chef Jill Vedaa was named a semi-finalist for the 2018 James Beard Foundation Best Chef: Great Lakes. The small plates. The crafted cocktails. The attention to detail and every flavor. It’s what sets this restaurant apart from others. I’d recommend ordering a few small plates and share with your loved ones. Their menu also changes seasonally to reflect the best local ingredients and flavor of foods. Order a cocktail you’ve never had and you’ll love it. You can’t go wrong here. And chances are, you’ll likely see Chef Jill socializing with her customers so be sure to say hi! My favorite dishes to date: White Bean Puree (Vegetables), Polenta Fries (Vegetables), Caramelized Baby Carrots (Vegetables), and Halibut (Fish).

Spice Kitchen & Bar: Truly a farm to fork eatery. So true that they even provide the map of their farm to show where their food is grown. I mean, how cool. Also meaning their menu changes seasonally to provide the most nutrient-dense, local ingredients full of flavor. Their patio is also a place to be in the summer. Not only is Spice a kitchen and bar in Cleveland, they also offer events at their farm in Brecksville. I had the opportunity to attend a Spice Acres event in 2017 where my husband and I toured the farm, walked over to the beautiful barn (definitely would have had my wedding here had I known about this place!) and enjoyed a multi-course meal of plant-based foods with wine pairings. My favorite dishes to date: Killbuck Valley Mushroom Flatbread (Shareables), Polenta Chickpea Fries (Shareables), Pan Roasted Atlantic Sea Scallops (Substantials), Local Greens Salad (Bar Menu) and Fried Lake Erie Creamery Cheese Curds (Bar Menu).

Toast: One of my favorite happy hour/bar spots in Cleveland. Toast has one of the best vibes, in my opinion. Very relaxing. Great service. In the Gordon Square Arts District, Toast is a great place to grab an always house-made bite to eat. My hands down favorite place to eat buffalo cauliflower bites! They also have a trio of toast daily (hence the name!) that is always a good choice. Always. The menu also changes seasonally so you can never get bored. In the summertime, grab a spot on the patio because it is definitely a crowd favorite. My favorite dishes here to date: Buffalo Cauliflower (Small Plates), Trio of Toast (Snacks), and Chef’s Whim Greens (Small Plates).

The Plum: This place is definitely bar and restaurant goals. The coolest ambiance. If there is one restaurant in Cleveland that I could dream of picking it up and making it fit into my house, it would be The Plum. The all-white backsplash bar and the exposed brick walls – so dreamy. The food and the service are even better. I love this place because you can tell that each dish is well thought out. It serves a purpose on their menu. They offer a variety of plates from small to large on all their menus, giving customers a chance to order a few dishes to share. The menu changes so it doesn’t stay stagnant. There is a reason The Plum was voted best new restaurant in 2017 by Cleveland Magazine. They offer a bar only menu with small bites, dinner menu with a variety of sized plates and brunch on Saturdays. Also, The Plum has one of my favorite patios with live music and conveniently located next to the Platform Brewery (my favorite brewery in Cleveland!). My favorite dishes here to date: Beet Taco (Small Plate, Dinner Menu), House Salad (Medium Plate, Dinner Menu), Brussels Sprouts (Medium Plate, Dinner Menu) and the Spicy Grain Bowl (Brunch Menu; with a mimosa of course!).

Le Petit Triangle Café: This place gives me all the Paris vibes and I love it! Le Petit is a Parisian café offering the best coffee and pastries, as well as midday and evening meals. But let’s talk about what they are really known for: brunch. Seriously, best.brunch.ever. Located in Ohio City, this restaurant’s goal for the past 10 years has been to make sure customers feel right at home with their friends and family, eating good food and drinking a beverage of choice, whether that be a coffee, cocktail, wine or beer (or all the above). They have it all. Expect a wait on a Saturday morning but believe me when I say it is worth the wait. My favorite dishes to date: French Toast (Brunch Menu; it’s a must try!), Ratatouille (Brunch; Savory Crepes), and their Pumpkin Latte.

Flying Fig: The Flying Fig is a small eatery and bar that is one of my favorite places to grab brunch or a small bite to eat. It is also one of my favorite places to grab a spot at the bar and enjoy happy hour. One of the many reasons I love this place so much is their effort to offer locally sourced foods with a true farm to fork environment. The Flying Fig prides itself on supporting local, small family farms. Karen Small, owner and head chef, is also a semi-finalist for the 2018 James Beard Foundation Best Chef: Great Lakes. Definitely well deserved. If you go when it isn’t too busy (which is rare) and the weather is nice, grab one of the few tables outside on their patio. My favorite dishes to date: Taleggio Polenta (Brunch Menu), Grilled Eggplant (Brunch Menu), Avocado Toast (Brunch Menu), Tofu Banh Mi Bowl (Lunch + Dinner Menu) and the Trio of Toast (Of the Day).

Townhall: I can’t name my favorite places to eat and not mention this place. Townhall is a non-GMO restaurant located in the heart of Ohio City on W. 25th Street. They offer a wide selection of healthy, feel-good meals, from sustainably sourced meats to high-quality vegan options. They understand that nutrition is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach so they go above and beyond to cater to all dietary preferences, from Paleo/Keto to Vegan options. To make it even better, their beverage choices are just like the food: top notch, offering zero-toxin, 100% organic coffee, organic cold-pressed juices and a great selection of beers showcasing local whenever possible. Definitely one of my favorites to go for a date night, vegan night, to watch a Cleveland sports game or for a holiday. They always do it right. My favorite dishes here to date: Acai+Grainless Granola Bowl (Brunch Menu), Caramelized Brussel Sprouts/Harissa Roasted Cauliflower (Organic Earth Bites), Townhall Veggie Burger (Pickups), Root Organic and Cold Pressed Juice and Pureed Acai (Smoothies).

The Grocery: Every time I walk into The Grocery, I smile. That’s how happy this place makes me. They probably know my name by now because I am a regular. No shame whatsoever. They also know Kip (my fur baby) because he comes along for the ride, and the peanut butter. The Grocery is a grab-and-go café from hot breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches and wraps, cold pressed juices, bowls and salads and smoothies. They also sell local edibles such as locally sourced produce, pasta and pasta sauces as well as dairy products. They proudly display the local farms where they are sourcing their ingredients from on the walls which is super cool. My favorite dishes to date: Vegan Fare wrap (all the local/seasonal vegetables with a house cashew dressing wrapped in a tortilla shell; sandwiches) and the PB&J smoothie (almond milk, peanut butter, banana, strawberry and I add hemp protein; smoothies). Not sure who loves this place more: me or Kip.
Beet Jar: If I had to vote for a place that has hands down the coolest vibes, it would probably be Beet Jar. A small storefront with so much character. Beet Jar is a juice bar and grab-and-go vegan takeaway. Outstanding services and even better food. All their choices are made in-house, from their cold-pressed juices to the vegan sandwiches and chia pudding (so good!). My all-time favorite sandwich is from here: the Bravocado, which contains smoked coconut flakes, avocado, greens, red onion, house-made cashew mayo on whole grain bread (other options also available). Get it and thank me later. They definitely do it right here. I actually want to take one of their walls (yes an entire wall) and place it in my home. Some of my other favorites to date: Flavored Raw Cashew Mylk (Drinks in the Cooler), Strawberry Alarm Clock (Raw Smoothies), and Mr. Presley (Raw Smoothies).

There you have it! Nine amazing places to add to your list of places to try in Cleveland. Where do you go for a healthy bite?

Cleveland’s Best Ice Cream Shops with eatswithclaire

One of my favorite Cleveland foodies to follow along with is Claire from @cle_food – her colorful feed always leaves me feeling hungry. Anyone who has followed her on her foodie escapades knows that the girl loves her some ice cream! That’s why I’m so glad she has taken the time to share with us her favorite ice cream spots in The Land  

Ice cream is a good idea year round, but now that it’s summer I think it’s time that you get the scoop (pun intended) on what some of the best ice cream shops in The Land are.

Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream: You know it’s good when there is a line out the door in the dead of Cleveland winter.  Everyone in Cleveland knows and loves Mitchell’s Ice Cream.  With their huge variety of flavors (including some dairy free and vegan friendly options), quality ingredients, and generous portions, what is there not to love?   With over 30 flavors of ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt, there is truly something for everybody at Mitchell’s. I honestly don’t know if I could say what my favorite flavor here is because every single one (and trust me, I’ve tried all of them) is incredible.   Each batch of ice cream is hand crafted at their Ohio City kitchen, and you can go at any time to watch the process of how the ice cream is made.   Another thing I love about Mitchell’s is that they support other local companies.  A lot of the ingredients found in the ice cream at Mitchell’s Ice Cream are sourced from local farmers and friends such as their berries (Greenfield Farms), nuts (Hillson Nut Co.), milk and cream (Hartzler Family Dairy), and many more. So go to Mitchells and order a scoop (or two), a milkshake, or a sundae sundae, and trust me, you will leave a lot happier than when you walk in.

Mason’s Creamery:  If you’re on Instagram, you’ve probably seen Mason’s Creamery.  With aesthetic wall murals and cute lights, Mason’s is a very Insta-worthy ice cream shop.  Although you might go for the gram, you’ll definitely want to keep coming back after for the unique and always changing flavors of ice cream.  At Mason’s Creamery, they make small batches of handmade ice cream, so they are always testing out different flavors like taro, black sesame, French toast, and Dunkaroos just to name a few. I am constantly going back because if you go back on different weeks, you will have a completely new flavor selection to choose from!  On weekends they also offer soft serve, which I am seriously obsessed with because it is the perfect creamy texture.  If you’re not there on a weekend though, I recommend getting your scoops of ice cream on their egg waffle with a flavored whipped cream on top.  I promise you won’t regret it.

Piccadilly Artisan Creamery: When you order ice cream at Piccadilly Artisan Creamery, you’ll see that they take liquid ice cream and mix it with liquid nitrogen.  Although your order might take a little longer to put together because of this, it is so worth it.  This freezing process doesn’t just look really cool; it also results in an extra creamy ice cream (I had no clue ice cream could be so creamy until I tried this place) because the extremely fast freezing process minimizes the size of ice crystals in the ice cream.  Not only is the ice cream here super creamy, but also every one of their flavors is incredible.  Piccadilly Creamery takes pride in only using fresh quality ingredients (there’s only about 6 or ingredients in each ice cream), and the quality of their ingredients is evident when you take your first bite.  This is a great place to hang out with friends or go on a date to because the atmosphere is so cute, and they have board games available to play while you eat your ice cream.

Sweet Moses:  Two things that have a special place in my heart are ice cream and nostalgia, so when I first discovered Sweet Moses, I was in love.  Located in the heart of Cleveland’s Gordon Arts District, Sweet Moses will take you right back to the 1950’s.   This old-timey soda fountain, ice cream, and candy shop has truly mastered the classics and is the place to go to if you are looking for simple, classic, really good ice cream. Let me be honest, ifyou are looking for a small scoop of light ice cream or sorbet, you might be better off going to one of the previous ice cream shops talked about in this article.  Sweet Moses isthe place to go to if you want a scoop of ice cream that is more like 3 scoops that has somehow been formed into one ball (seriously, the portions are huge) or a sundae that is big enough to feed a family of four.  This classic neighborhood is a must try if you want to “treat yo’ self”.  If it weren’t for the sake of my health, you’d see me here every day.

Now get out there + eat some ice cream, it’s good for your soul and much cheaper than therapy.

The truth about Cleveland’s own Clean Remedies CBD products

by Kaitie Nickel

We recently had the pleasure of working with Clean Remedies to review their CBD oil tincture and roller ball to test its effects. In case you have been hiding under a rock, CBD is essentially a way of obtaining all the health benefits of marijuana without any of the psychoactive properties. Sound too good to be true? Well, don’t you worry – we tried it out and are here to tell you all about our experience.

I’m a pretty relaxed person, to be honest. I don’t get stressed out too easily. One of my many skills is that I can fall asleep on at the drop of a dime ANYWHERE. I am the queen of sleeping on airplanes. My husband Kyle, on the other hand will admit to stressing out over pretty inconsequential things… pretty much all the time. Sound like anyone you know? So when we started using CBD oil, honestly I didn’t feel the effects right away, but my husband displayed properties of “zen” almost immediately. I noticed it most in his lack of road rage, he notices it most in his ability to relax in situations where he’d normally feel anxiety.

Update: During my postpartum period I’ve experienced more anxiety than I’m used to, so I’ve tried Clean Remedies tincture again when it’s starting and found it to be very helpful in keeping me a bit more tranquil during this season of life.

Where I personally noticed the most significant difference while taking CBD oil tincture is the quality of my sleep. I fell slept heavier and woke up every morning feeling much more rested. Since I am SO good at sleeping, getting out of bed in the morning is a bit of a struggle but I generally feel more refreshed after an evening where I’ve used the tincture. I’ll be honest, I try to only use it when I’m feeling restless so that I don’t build a tolerance to it.

Kyle + I both took the oil by placing it under our tongues for 30 seconds – it’s practically tasteless but I still washed it down with a sip of water because….its oily. I’ve also heard of people adding into their smoothies!

CBD oil helps not only the anxious and sleep deprived but also helps with pain relief and inflammation and the Clean Remedies roller ball is incredible for this. You roll it onto anywhere you’re feeling achy and it immediately brings relief. It makes the area a little tingly, a bit like icy-hot which I absolutely love. If I could recommend trying one thing from the Clean Remedies line up, it would be this.

Clean Remedies’ mission is to enhance the quality of life through natural hemp products and promote more natural well-being. BEST OF ALL – it’s made right here in Cleveland. We love to support local + help make Cleveland even more chill. Check out their Instagram and get some CBD oil + be sure to comment slide into the @clevelandvibes DM’s to let us know what you think!
