Review of Civilization

Civilization
Ranked #7 of 38 Coffee & Tea in Cleveland
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Civilization could give a crap about this review. Does not do twitter, FB, Instagram, tinder, Etc. Just started taking credit cards in June of gosh darn 2014. I love them. They have a million dollar location on the corner of Lincoln Park and treat you like your $1.95 cup of coffee is the difference between them staying in business or not. The owner is there every morning smiling and hand washing the counters. There is the same lovable man sweeping the patio the same way at 7am every day 365 days a year. If Norman Rockwell showed up to paint a picture he would ask them to "tone it down" with the Americana. This might be the best coffee shop in Ohio.

I really enjoyed stopping here on a frigid day of touring Cleveland. Mexican Hot Chocolate is amazing. Great decor too!

The coffee here isn't bad, and there's a nice assortment of pastries/bagels. The atmosphere is really cozy, but no matter what time of day I go there, the tables are all occupied by people on their laptops, taking up one whole table to a single person. The owner is a dear, but the rest of the staff is rude, rude, rude! Take your business a block north to Loop coffeeshop instead.

Coffee, Food, and Staff are the best! Opens at 7am, darn good bagels! Extra meaty chili at lunch is my favorite
