Hi, friends! Welcome back to Stylishly Good Vibes! I’m back on the blog to share 5 of my favorite places in Cleveland. I think there are so many great places to explore here, and I want to share some of my top picks with you!
To keep it relevant, I’m only sharing the places I’ve been loving so far this year. I don’t think I need to preface this blog post any more than that, so let’s get started!
Also, this list isn’t in any specific order. I love them all equally! 🙂
Astoria Cafe & Market
Alright, Astoria is on my top restaurant list, for sure. I’ve been to delicious restaurants in Paris, Rome, and Florence, and Astoria stands up to all of them. Plus, lucky for us, it’s in Cleveland!
I LOVE going here. I’ve taken so many friends here, and I probably recommend it to people at least once a week. I love Mediterranean-inspired food, so Astoria is my jam. Their Pizza d’Oliva is one of the best I’ve ever had. I couldn’t believe it was gluten free—that’s how good it is.
If you need a good restaurant recommendation for someone who is visiting Cleveland, take them to Astoria. You will NOT regret it.
Western Reserve Historical Society + Cleveland Museum of Art
I’m lumping these two together because you could easily walk from one to the other. I’ve always been a big museum junkie, so I go to both of these places more than the average person. But, even if you’re not really into museums, they’re still fun places to spend an afternoon exploring!
The Western Reserve Historical Society is a beautiful museum that includes the Crawford Auto & Aviation Museum, as well as other smaller exhibits. There is a French Fashion exhibit right now that I absolutely love. The whole place is within the Hay-McKinney Mansion and the Bingham-Hanna Mansion. I really enjoy walking through each of them on a self-guided tour.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is always a favorite. I go every month or so just to roam around. I seem to always stumble upon new artwork that I didn’t see the previous time I was there. I’m a member at the art museum as well, so I love going to the MIX and Solstice every year. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out their Instagram!
Sanctuary on the Chagrin
I love doing yoga, and I wish I had more time to do it at this studio everyday. I’ve gone to a lot of yoga studios in Cleveland, and I never really felt like I belonged at any of them until I found Sanctuary on the Chagrin. I met the owner, Michelle, through one of my friends. She is such a genuinely awesome human who makes every yoga experience so special.
Practicing here is like nowhere else I’ve ever been. Great music, good vibes, and incredible location. It’s boutique-style, which means smaller class sizes and more one-on-one assistance if you are trying to master a specific pose.
Whether you’re into yoga or not, take a class with Michelle at Sanctuary on the Chagrin. I guarantee you’ll want to schedule your next class before you leave your mat.
Helm & All Things for You
I love shopping vintage home decor. Okay, let me rephrase that—I’m obsessed with it! I would go to Helm and All Things for You every month if I could. But, I’m trying to be more conscious with my spending this year, so it’s always a treat when I decide to go! I never leave either place without buying something—that’s how good their vintage selection is!
These shops are located right next to each other, too, which makes it easy to go to both! Whenever I shop at either store, I’m never looking for anything in particular. If something catches my eye and it’s cool, I’ll buy it! I love thinking that the items I buy have a cool backstory. Weird, I know.
Luna Bakery & Cafe
Of all the cafes and bakeries in Cleveland, the one I find myself visiting the most is Luna. It always holds a special place in my heart because they cater to people with all types of food intolerances. I love both locations—the one in Moreland Hills usually has more seating available, though, if you’re trying to work while you eat.
I love going to Luna with a book or my laptop. Lots of good vibes, good food, and good drinks. My absolute favorite thing to order on their menu is the grain bowl with chicken. Holy sh*t, I would eat that bowl every single day if I could.
Luna also has a yummy seasonal latte that is honey and lavender. Plus, if you’re gluten free, you MUST try their peanut butter cookie filled with jam. Unbelievable.
Well, there you have it! My top 5 favorite places in Cleveland! I think I might make this into a seasonal series where I share new places that I’ve stumbled upon. I’ll keep you posted on that!
Have a great week, friends!
Until next time!
