Doing the Weekend Right: Top spots for brunch

Sarah Sole

Is there a better way to celebrate your weekend than brunch? 

We think not, so we’re sharing with you the top places for that sweet spot in between breakfast and lunch, based on our ColumBEST reader survey. 

Feeling like a burger at 11:30 a.m.? No problem. What about a stack of pancakes at one? Solid choice, friend. Either way, we’ve got you covered with the selections below. 


Northstar Cafe

With 37.7% of your vote, Northstar is the top contender for best brunch spot. We’re not surprised. Their Cloud Nine Pancakes, made with ricotta and served with maple syrup and bananas, are a good bet for those with a sweet tooth to satisfy. On the savory side, we have the Biscuits and Sausage Gravy, as well as egg sandwiches and the mother of them all, the Big Burrito. And there’s always the Northstar Burger, a favorite for any time of day. With locations in Easton, Beechwold, the Short North, and Westerville, it’s easy to grab a bite no matter what part of town you live in.  


Not a shabby second place by any means, Lindey’s earned 31.4% of your vote. Their menu is a lux take on brunch that leans heavily toward the savory. Will you have the Salmon Tartine, the Crab & Egg, or the Huevos Rancheros? We can’t choose just one, and we don’t expect you to, either. 


Two words: Pancake balls. Whether you get them with Nutella, Dulce de Leche, or Katalina’s Pumpkin-Apple Butter, they are the stuff of dreams, and perhaps why 30.9% of you chose this eatery as your favorite place for brunch. If a sugar rush isn’t your thing, try the Large! Loaded Latin-Leaning Okonomiyaki, a purple and white potato pancake made with Okonomiyaki flour, corn and cabbage, and topped with a sunnyside egg, bacon, green onion, and housemade Piri-Piri and citrus aioli.
