Great for a proper Americana diner experience! Waffles were great, and a good supply of decent coffee. Really friendly and attentive staff, and under new management. Highly recommended.

We have stopped many times to have breakfast. Service is friendly and orders come out really quick. Home cooking with a home town feel.

As you might expect, Kleifeld was perfectly full on the day after thanksgiving. We were able to get a table for our party of six, had an eggsalent breakfast with plenty of customizations and all for a very reasonable price. It was very tasty, a pleasant place to be, and a wonderful meal shared with family. I'll keep it in... More

Ordered potato pancakes and bacon. Pancakes were dry and seemed pre-made. Bacon was limp. Asked for sour cream with the potato pancakes and got about 1/3 of a ketchup container which is not enough. Requested another, same amount came. Asked for a third and waitress says you know those are 50 cents a piece! No, I did not know. If... More

Although it's a small diner it's worth the wait for a table or you can sit and eat @ the counter. Great coffee, good food and service in a quaint ambiance mixed with reasonable prices makes Kleifeld's a favorite. The restaurant has changed hands a few times over the years but it is consistently good. Downtown wouldn't be the same... More

We saw the reviews for this Diner on Trip Advisor and thought we'd stop for lunch on our next trip to Willoughby and I have to say it was pretty good. I had breakfast for lunch and my country fried steak was perfectly prepared, the home fries were fresh and tasty and my wife's omelet was also good. The service... More

Kleifeld's restaurant is a classic old-time diner. We stopped for breakfast while checking out downtown Willoughby (which is worth visiting). The service was friendly and quick. We enjoyed our meals and the price was low. They advertise "good coffee, always.". The coffee was pretty good, and the mug kept full. Do stop in, especially if you like good diners.

Just like the restaurants I had lunch in back in the 50's. Nothing has changed. Atmosphere and service was a trip down memory lane. Good for breakfast (eggs are delicious) or lunch for a burger. And all for a bargain price. A don't miss in Downtown Willoighby.

Thank John K
