Last weekend, the family and I made two trips down to a place in the west side of Cleveland called Ohio City. It’s a lovely part of the city filled with unique eateries, knick-knack shops, and the popular West Side Market.
West 25th and Market Street
The street itself is pleasing to the eye. One of the first things I noticed was how clean the streets were. There’s potted foliage outside almost every business that’s spotted with the occasional colorful flower. In the main square across from the West Side Market, there was a band having a casual jam session and plenty of people sitting on the steps enjoying the local food. A building’s mural depicts a fresh harvest. And as a bonus, there’s a sign promising free Wi-Fi in the square!
West Side Market
The architecture and sheer size of the West Side Market is reminiscent of a train station. Built in the early 1900s, the market is home to a whopping 104 vendors! The highlight of our visit here was our stop at Crêpes de Luxe, a vendor that specializes in both sweet and savory crêpes. We also couldn’t resist trying some all-natural smoothies.
Brunch at SOHO
We drove back down the next day for Sunday brunch at a laid-back restaurant called SOHO. It was a good thing we arrived early because there was a line forming before the place even opened! The weather was perfect for us to sit outside.
All around a very pleasant weekend. Until next time,
