Everything here is so wonderful! I personally love th chicken and waffles. The cinnamon sage waffle is such a tasty compliment to the fried chicken. I order the hot sauce on the side because it can be painfully hot if you don't.

I have enjoyed Crave since it opened. It's a nice place for lunch or a bite after work. Mango flavored ice tea helps to set them apart.

Came on a recommendation from a server at another restaurant. Luckily for us, we hit a quiet night and didn't need a reservation. Place is contemporary chic, with spacious booths and funky (in a good way) lighting. Server and service was excellent. We were given...More

This is one of the better restaurants you'll find in downtown Akron. I've been here on multiple occasions, for lunch, and dinner. The food is always solid, and unique. Drinks are quality, and typically higher end. Overall, this is a fine place to go if...More
