Great locally owned little gem hidden in the brick paved area in the city but well worth finding. Fantastic home cooked organic hot food, salads, sandwiches and desserts. I almost always get the almond salad with chicken, slivered almonds lots of veggies, strawberries and mandarin oranges...delicious. Everything is fresh and you can either order at the counter and eat in... More

Mostly all the food is precooked in warming trays. Some people love this place. I am not a big fan because the food seems to sit so long and you really cant order off a menu. Clean location, ample street parking. Not bad but not great.

This gem is located on 30th, and you would never know it's there if you weren't looking for it. It's on the west side of the street with some fairly easy street parking. It's cafeteria style food with daily hot and cold options. I think that I've never spent more than $10. Getting your food is fairly quick and there... More

This is a little storefront gem in the middle of Mid-town in CLE. The greek pasta is one of my favorites. The salmon is always fresh and delicious.

Wonderful food in the unique warehouse setting is the perfect lunch combination . Wonderful café style lunch line with generous helpings of the daily specials and the occasional fantastic dessert. Very cool place to relax and enjoy fresh food.

Visited for the first time the other day. Cafeteria style service in a well planned and eclectic dining room. We both had the portobello sandwich and was quite tasty. The bread is hard too chew as in crusty but still very good. No fountain drinks so it's bottles and cans.

I had Tastebuds on a Tuesday as a carryout and really didn't see much I was interested in,until I saw the daily special-Pepper Jack Chicken. That was my choice via default and it was solid enough with a breaded and sauteed chicken breast topped with pepper jack cheese. I wasn't crazy about the beans,rice and corn,but not terrible either. Pretty... More

Tastebuds is great for the fresh ingredients and choices of comfort food as well as quick grabs like salad and sandwiches. The special of the day never disappoints and you will NOT leave hungry. Even if there is a line of people you will get through it quickly so don't be deterred by it. Well worth every penny.

This is one of my favorite places to eat. The staff is awesome. The décor is inviting. The atmosphere is warm and pleasant. The patrons are friendly. The food is to die for. Whoever thought healthy could taste so good. One of my favorites would be the portabella mushroom sandwich. A must try! Another one of my favorites would be... More

Used to eat here frequently when I worked around the corner. Stopped in to find nothings changed. Great food, great atmosphere. Different specials daily make for nice surprises.
