If ever there were a “brunch season,” it’s spring. With warmer temps and sunnier days, diners are eager to get outside to enjoy the fresh air. Spring also includes some of the busiest brunching days of the year: Easter, Mother’s Day and college graduations.

So make your plans now! Here are some suggestions for brunching this spring:

The Table

With an emphasis on gathering as a group around the table, brunch at The Table is a communal affair. The rustic and mismatched settings are a fun background for a family-style brunch of fresh pastries, biscuits and gravy, and spicy akoori dishes.

Natalie’s Coal-Fired Pizza

This Worthington pizza joint makes crispy pies in their anthracite coal oven, and they’re made even better at brunch with the addition of Luck Brothers coffee, cocktails, and live music.

Zoe Cafe

A newer sister restaurant to Tasi Cafe in Short North (which is another solid brunch option), Zoe Cafe offers a similar menu with more space in Bexley. Visit the new eatery and feast on New York strip steak and eggs, cinnamon challah French toast, and poached eggs on black bean cakes.

Condado Tacos

This Short North build-your-own taqueria added a funky weekend brunch, with breakfasty tacos like the chicken and waffles taco, sweet potato pork belly hash taco, and even the huevos rancheros taco! Easter brunch 2

101 Beer Kitchen

Maybe you’d like a burger for brunch? FlipSide at Easton features a weekend brunch with a full line-up of Bloody Marys to complement brunchy versions of their burgers, plus entrees like chicken and waffles.
