CWC is the restaurant realization of the Cincinnati-based Cooking with Caitlin brand. Smack dab in the center of Wyoming, OH, it’s a love note to the community where we, Caitlin, Kelly, and Karen, have rooted our families and grown our business.

Come hungry for familiar ingredients twisted inventively into extra special comfort food as only Chefs Caitlin + Brian know how to twist them. Our Baby Biscuits and Char Cheddar Burgers are signature staples; the rest changes seasonally. And in our small, scratch kitchen, *we sometimes run out of items*.

CWC is an ongoing opportunity for us to serve and celebrate our neighbors, friends, and fans in the intimate way we do our own families, at our own kitchen counter. We take personally your experience and are grateful for the opportunity to break bread with you.

NOTE: "Counter" seats are right in front of the chefs in our completely open kitchen.

Upon entering the restaurant it was freezing cold and many of the patrons had their coats on. Two of the items we ordered were not available. We were very excited to eat here as we had heard wonderful things but were disappointed with our meal and experience.

Always a treat. Fun atmosphere. Good cocktail. Salad was light on anchovies, more capers instead.

Date night with my husband, and we both found menu items that we like, even though our tastes are very different. He had the spicy sausage pizza, of which I nabbed a slice, of course, trading it for a morsel of my harissa-roasted cauliflower. Both were great, though I was wishing for bigger florets! We also shared the Julius salad, also excellent. We were both pleasantly surprised that the pizza crust and sausage were PERFECT, especially since we are pretty picky. We would ordinarily not even try the pizza in a small local restaurant! Name the top 10 best pizza joints in town. This was better than at least 9 of them! I think it’s because this little gem of a restaurant is a passion come to life. The owner was active in the dining area, just greeting every one and taking time to speak to each diner— we were new, but she knew many patrons by name. Her service team was friendly, helpful on the menu, and very efficient. They all seemed glad to be there...and after an excellent meal in a fun little neighborhood place....so were we.

Love brunching here, so many options, although the breakfast nachos are always warm and crunchy. You should never skip the donuts, and I'm continuing a campaign to bring back the sweet potato fritter, it was heavenly. The staff is always friendly, and it's a judgement free zone when you order boozy coffee in morning.

Brunch = AMAZING!!! The menu is somewhat small, but WHAT A MENU!!! Our seats at the kitchen bar allowed us to watch the amazing kitchen crew and get a meal preview....which led us to several “our eyes were larger than our stomachs” decisions. We landed on the Homemade Ricotta Blintzes with Blueberry sauce (yummmm), the Spicy Sausage Hash (not too spicy and really flavorful), and finally the breakfast nachos (oh my NACHOS.....SO FLIPPING GOOD!!!!!!!) . Yes, there were only 2 of us and yes, we over ordered, but sorry, not sorry!!! There were about 5 other dishes we wanted to try, (The BBQ donut with pulled pork and then the chocolate zucchini bread) but that will have to wait until next time!! Go give Chefs Caitlin and Todd a visit and let Kelly welcome you to the best brunch in town. You too can be unapologetically, Sorry..not sorry!!!

The food was very tasty and unique. The restaurant is quaint and quite lovely. The staff is so helpful and willing to go the extra mile to please the customer. Zack was outstanding. It is quite nice when the owner comes by and socializes with customers.... nice personal touch. Reminds me of the old diners and gives you an inclusive vibe. I would definitely recommend. Will be going back again.

We love the unique atmosphere at CWC. We also love that the menu changes according to seasonal availability (this is what we’ve read & were told, but since it was our 1st time here, I guess we’ll have to go back to confirm. Our server, Josh, was so friendly and helpful with dishes & food sensitivities.

Great customer service. Fish taco needs improvement. To hard to pick up and eat. Needs side orders of pico de Gallo. And more sauce on the taco. Big piece of cod not eye appealing (great if your having fish and chips). Menu said fried egg per web site wasn’t on the menu or the taco. Just was not a fish taco! Cheddar burger wasn’t bad. Too pricey for a burger and fries.

Our first time to CWC! We brought 3 generations and all of us knew right away that we had made a good choice in place and kind of food. No one pressured or hurried us. One of the owners, Kelly, stopped by our table several times just to see how we were getting along. We will return!

Creative menu, wonderful dessert, friendly staff. We sat outside so the noise level was low. The outdoor seating is at picnic tables, sitting on wooden benches. It is noisy inside.

Our first visit to the restaurant. Staff extremely friendly. Seems to have many many regulars. Seated promptly with reservation time but delayed in server attendance for coffee. Food nothing spectacular for breakfast that would have me come back. Portion were variable , I had the breakfast nachos and a much smaller portion of goetta and chips compared to others that were served during my visit. Value was priced well for portions comparable to first watch pricing.
