Columbus’ breakfast scene is always growing and changing! Let’s take a look at the newest openings in breakfast, brunch, coffee and donuts.


Geordie’s Restaurant

This new pub features English fare in a cozy atmosphere in Merion Village. “Geordie” is a term for the people and dialect of the Tyneside region of England, from where chef Glen Hall-Jones hails. The Saturday and Sunday brunch menus differ, but both offer hearty breakfast fare. Saturday includes corned beef hash, chicken and waffles, biscuits & gravy and omelets. Sunday adds quiche Lorraine, pancakes, pork chops, eggs and of course: a full English breakfast!
