Cleveland is an awesome city because there are so many cool places to explore. From Shaker Heights to Little Italy to Cleveland Heights to Lakewood, there are so many little, quaint suburbs and areas to discover. I personally love doing homework at coffee shops in these areas because the environment inspires me as I grab a cup of my favorite tea or coffee and a croissant on a Sunday morning. A friend of mine and I are determined to do some more exploring before we leave for college in the fall because we want to see as much of our beautiful city as we can before we say goodbye for a while. Here are some great suggestions for cool, less mainstream coffee shops around Cleveland!
