Does anybody have any recommendations for brunch in the Columbus, OH area?
Thank you!

    The best brunch around is at La Tavola. This brunch has the most fantastic fresh and innovative food. For example, they have a pancake of the day and last week they had Cherry Garcia cakes. The chef uses homemade batter and they are the best darn pancakes around. Some other brunch items that are excellent are the prosciottu hash, and focaccia breakfast sandwich. Check out their webpage: www.latavolainpowell.com

      Lindey's has a good brunch. You can also order off their full lunch menu. Northstar is good for a big weekday breakfast, or, even better, lunch or a simple dinner (the most amazing veggie burger anywhere!), but it's too crowded on weekends.

        I used to go to the Hyatt at Capital Square for Brunch and it was always incredible.

          I tried the Zen Cha brunch today after reading that Dispatch article. It was incredible. They have about 10 pancake or waffle options that are far from ordinary. We ordered two that sounded a little strange and were very impressed.

            I have been wanting to try it but haven't been there. One of my friends liked it but said it had a slightly limited menu. I think it would probably be a good choice, anyway. There is also a new place on High Street in the Short North near Posh Pets called "8" that has brunch - I only went there for an early dinner once but the brunch menu looked interesting. It is kind of trendy decor. The dinner food was kind of like Burgundy Room but more casual.

              Thank you for the warning. :). I was reading the article that nsxtasy enclosed along with the reply. Have you ever been to Banana Bean Cafe?
              Just wanted your opinion of that place.

                According to their website, the Worthington Inn was voted "Columbus’ Best Brunch in 2006" by Columbus Monthly Magazine. I haven't been there for brunch, but I've eaten dinner there numerous times and it's always been excellent.

                The Dispatch did an article on brunches a few months ago:

                    I love the Worthington Inn brunch (and any other meal there). Be warned, though - it is a great buffet and you will want to try everything, so don't plan any strenuous activity post-lunch!
