“Charming spot with a lot to offer”
Review of Civilization

Civilization
Ranked #7 of 38 Coffee & Tea in Cleveland
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 April 2016 via mobile

This place has some really good coffee and really great pastries. I went one Saturday morning with my girlfriend on her recommendation and then went back with my husband the next day because it was so inviting.

Had the weather been warming I would have sat outside, but alas in January in Ohio, it's anyone's guess what the weather will look like.

Very quaint and cozy environment. I would recommend to all of Cleveland.

This is not another same-old Starbucks. This place is UNIQUE, a place with lots of atmosphere, great coffee selection, and delicious pastries. It is a MUST in the Tremont neighborhood.

I have gone here a number of times since moving to Tremont. Civilization has great coffee, and a variety of other foods and selections on their menu. The staff is polite, professional, and helpful. The prices are reasonable, cheaper than a lot of coffee shops. They also offer free wifi. I'd go here over Starbucks any day.

As a man who likes a good book and a cozy coffee shop I put a lot of emphasis on atmosphere, but good coffee is important as well. Civilization has five stars for atmosphere. It's an old building with old wood work, classic. Coffee is good not great and few, if any, options. I'll give the product 4 stars, but of course I'll round up for the local shop.

I have been here a couple times, just for coffee, but decided on lunch for a Sunday afternoon. The baristas were friendly and polite as always and served a fresh cup of phenomenal coffee. They then made the sandwich (tuna salad) fresh with crisp lettuce ripe tomato and really good bread.

Aside from the food and coffee being excellent, the atmosphere of this place is very enjoyable. It feels like an old community coffee shop, a good lunch time gathering place with a long wood bar and dark but cozy lighting. This is a great place to drop in for lunch or just to drink coffee and read the paper.
