Breakfast in Bexley (Columbus), OH


Will be attending an event this weekend in Bexley (Columbus), OH and was hoping to have good breakfast beforehand. Really, I'm open to anything except fast food; don't mind chains for breakfast, just want more than a sandwich.

I looked at Google Maps for the area and there really doesn't seem to be much unless you take Main St. all the way out to 270. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Chains are awful, especially here.....Bob Evans is quite horrid and TeeJays manages to be worse.

    Best bets for Breakfast in this city on a weekend - ZenCha, DragonFly, Northstar, Banana Bean (if you want a shitty attitude with decent food,)

    The "First Watch" chain is decent, but not "good" by any means.

    This city lacks horribly for breakfast - it is sad.

    1. Just a bit east of Bexley is Paul's Restaurant (4545 E Broad St, Columbus, OH 43213,
      (614) 868-0558). Not fancy at all. And I haven't been there with the new owner, but I used to like it. Very basic, old-school style. With the lifer waitresses. :)

      If you want frou-frou & DELICIOUS, Tasi Cafe downtown is the best. My favorites are the coffee, almond pastries, greek omelette, & biscuits & gravy. Mmmmmmm....Parking is terrible, though.

      1. If you like Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, you need to visit the Grill & Skillet in Bexley at 2924 E. Main St. (Main & Enfield, across from Bexley Post Office). Technically speaking, this is Eastmoor, it's 2 blocks east of Bexley. For about $4-$5, you can get eggs, meat, potatoes, toast & coffee. Its been there for 50-60 years and the inside looks like it. If you have to have brand spanking new interior, this is not for you. If you are into local scene, good food, fast & fresh, give it a try. Please post your review if you go, they could use the new customers. Thanks!

        1. Block's bagels is close to Bexley ( 3415 E Broad St) you can definitely get more than an sandwich there. So good, great pastries, and I think most of it is Kosher too.
