1401 East 55th Street • Cleveland, OH


Rick Semersky, owner of the historic Sterle’s Country House  in the St. Clair Superior neighborhood, has big plans for the adjacent property. At present, the buildings at 1361 E. 55th Street house VIP, Semersky’s building exterior contractor company. But he’s been quietly working to redevelop much of that property.

Next up is Café 55, a breakfast and lunch café that Semersky hopes to open by late summer. He’s partnering on the project with Courtney Bonning of Bonbon Pastry and Café  . Guests can look forward to coffee, pastries, sandwiches and salads.

Semersky also reports that he’s in the final planning phases of a new microbrewery that will take up residence in a 12,000-square-foot space in the Old School Cabinetry building. The 10-barrel brewery will feature a 75-seat taproom with a bar and patio.
