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.

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.

Kelly greeted us at the door on Sunday with a huge smile and hugs. We had a party of 11 for brunch and the service was excellent as was the food. We enjoyed out brunch and look forward to going back.

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.

First time to dine at CWC. It lived up to it’s hype! Excellent hospitality and great food. The place is small and very cute. The staff went beyond being nice. The food had a great mix of flavors. The plates are not overly large- we left perfectly content!

I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. The menu is full of both comfort food and exciting combinations you never knew you’d love. The decor/layout is welcoming and open with so many subtle touches that make you feel at home. But it is the staff - especially Kelly and Caitlin - that cements this as a place I want to frequent. They have the unique ability to make strangers feel like family. Kelly never fails to get the whole group rolling with laughter and her ability to spend time with each table as though she has all the time in the world is an art. Thanks CWC! I’ll be back!

Great drinks and salads (we had the 7 Layer and the Citrus Shrimp) and entrees (the pork and the swordfish). Perfectly sized portions - not too big, not too small , JUST RIGHT! And Kelly, who ably covers the front of the house, is an absolute delight.

CWC has been on our restaurant bucket list ... wish we had made it sooner. The entire experience from start to finish impressed. The menu is creative while still approachable. Each and every dish we tasted was delicious. Having Caitlin behind the line and Kelly out front is a duo that can't be beat. We can't wait to return!!!!
