Best of Cleveland 2007


Congratulations to DEWEYS COFFEE

Best of clevelan 2007Dewey’s Coffee House
radiates with the creativity of Diane Armstrong, an interior designer and its co-proprietor. Just inside the door, antique leaded windows frame a half-vestibule. The wood floors are stamped with florid patterns resembling henna tattoos. The vibrant color scheme, full of bright mustards, greens, browns and reds, evokes an edginess that balances the cozy feel of the fireplace and couches in one corner. Though some solitary laptop-toters set up shop, attracted by the free Wi-Fi, Dewey’s harkens back to the classic European notion of a coffeehouse as a “gathering house” (as its slogan says). Its wide windows and patio embrace one of Cleveland’s friendliest mini-communities, Shaker Square. Stop by for coffee or for lunch — the menu includes Bialy’s Bagels (see above) — or cross the square, pick up a bottle of wine at Shaker Square Beverage, and come back. If you bring your own vino, a barista will pour it for a “hospitality fee.” 13201 Shaker Square, Cleveland; (216) 991-1101
