The Russian Tea Biscuits and the Challah's are amazing. Wait until you taste the fresh donuts in the morning!!! OMG! The strudels of course will make you keep coming back for more!

While going to Lucy's might be a good experience, ordering on line was not! By looking at main sight and pictures on shopping sight I assumed ordering 2 strudles for $31+ would get me 4 strudel strips. We received 2. When I called for explanation Mike immediately became very agitated and rude-as if he has to deal with complaints all the time. He told me I couldn't read and it was people like me...I hung up! My advise is BUYER BEWARE! Oh, by the way, Mom said strudel was okay, but not what my grandma used to make!

Family owned bakery-not much left to choose from by early afternoon that must be a testament to how delicious things are. Brought back strudel and it passed the husband test!

Every time my husband and I visit Cleveland (we now live 600+ miles away), we place a BIG order at Lucy's ahead of time! Everyone loves the baked goods from there--the cream-cheese cookies, strudels, and Hungarian nut rolls are unsurpassed for quality & taste. Actually, everything made at Lucy's is great! It's always a joy to return to the shop and visit with the owners and staff. Yes, the public area is a bit small--I call it cozy--but we have never thought the store as being "dingy"! I have fond memories of how wonderful it was in the Buckeye area during the 50s and 60s--lovely homes and well-kept yards, friendly people, and great stores & restaurants. Now that the Balaton Restaurant is gone, Lucy's is the sole torch-bearer of times past in that beautiful Hungarian neighborhood with its wonderful people. We are looking forward to another holiday season in Cleveland, sharing Lucy's delectibles with our family and friends.

Pros: Service, Value, FANTASTIC pastries and baked goods. Stores has its own parking lot.

Cons: Nearby streets are sometimes congested during the holidays.

My boyfriend is Hungarian and loves his rum cake so a stop at Lucy's is always a treat for us both. I love their chocolatey desserts while he always goes for the rum cake. We recently tried their strudel too and it was magnificient as well. We are hosting a party in the next month and are planning on ordering a couple of party platters filled with assorted desserts. I'm not sure how we're going to be able to choose which ones though because they are all fantastic.

You not only can't go wrong - you'll wonder why you haven't made it to this bakery before! Approaching Lucy's Sweet Surrender - you surrender to the very aromatic smells that you nose is drying to smell more of.

Our initial visit was to look for party trays for a party we were throwing for someone. We found some great trays at decent prices. They have so many and all are wonderfully prepared and so tasty.

One of them was very popular at the party and that was the Old World Style try. It consisted of items like their delicious Strudels, Poppy Roll, Nut Rolls, and cream cheese pastry, chocolate cookies, Szorbo's and something else which I have forgotten. Another item that was very well liked was their delicious Rum Cake. Actually we picked up many items for the party and they were all a hit.

One of my favorites is the Chocolate Mousse Torte. It is a 3 layered chocolate cake filled with tasty chocolate mousse, with chocolate curls and fruit brandy and more. I think it serves about 10 people or more but that depends if I will let them have any.

Lucys Sweet Surrender is an old-world Hungarian bakery on Clevelands East Side. While the neighborhood it resides in has changed quite a bit since its opening 50 years ago, the bakery itself hasnt changed a thing. While their buttery, flaky strudels, which are shipped all over the country, are the star of the show, Lucys other offerings like nut rolls and cream cheese pastries are also worth a sample.
