2572 Scranton Road
Cleveland, OH 44113
Tucked on the corner of Scranton and Starkweather, the Tremont Taphouse offers an amazing brunch every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. While it may not be the lightest on your wallet, the incredible tastes your palate will be exposed to are worth the indulgence. Known for its phenomenal beer selection, you may need to enlist the assistance of the bartender in choosing a tasty brew to accompany your meal. Or go for the unique mimosa, made with hard cider instead of champagne. But be aware, if you’re craving a tasty bloody mary to knock out the cobwebs from the night before, make sure you arrive after 11 a.m. Otherwise, Ohio’s antiquated liquor laws will prevent you from indulging your desires.
Buckeye Beer Engine

Amongst them is the popular Buckeye Beer Engine, known best for great burgers and an incredibly diverse offering of beer. Fittingly, its Sunday menu from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. is known as Burgers and Brunch. Although it should probably add the third “B” for beer. Buckeye offers some of the most popular burgers along with a variety of tasty breakfast specialties. And starting at 11 a.m., you can treat yourself to some fun at the build-your-own bloody mary bar if you are looking for some respite from the brews the weekend already delivered.
