German Village Coffee Shop
German Village Coffee Shop is my go-to breakfast spot. It’s not fancy. It’s a diner and you’ll be enjoying coffee instead of mimosas, but the food is delicious. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can take suggestions from the awesome staff or take on the daily special. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with bacon and eggs!

Tasi Cafe is a gem in the Short North. They’ve got a wide variety of dishes on their menu. Even the pickiest of eaters should be able to leave happy. The best part about brunch at Tasi is that no matter which delicious meal you choose, you can complement it with a lavender blueberry mimosa.

If the weather is nice, the patio at Katalina’s provides the perfect setting for brunch. Their breakfast tacos are award-winning, but we all know we’re going for the pancake balls. Be sure to get there early because finding a seat can be a bit of a battle. But that just goes to show you how yummy the food is.

Jack & Benny’s
Jack & Benny’s is a classic diner. They dapple in all the classics. I think Jack & Benny’s is the perfect place to go if you and your pals are searching for a big ol’ stack of pancakes, a coffee, and a chill atmosphere.

First Watch is one of the first places to come to mind when I think “brunch with mom.” But honestly, anyone can enjoy it. It’s a go-to breakfast food kind of place and with multiple locations around the city, so odds are there is one reasonably close to you, which is especially awesome if you’re the one in the friend group who’s always late to brunch.

Fox in the Snow Cafe
Specializing in coffee drinks, pastries, and egg sandwiches, Fox in the Snow is a charming little cafe with locations in both Italian and German Village. Chic and trendy, the cafe is an adorable place to sit down and grab a quick bite to eat. Don’t forget to get a good gram of that hopping fox. If you don’t, how will the other moms even know you’re a cool mom?

The Woodbury has been one of my favorite additions to this city for a long time. It’s got a great, downtown diner vibe, plus the service is always fantastic. They’ve got tons of twists on classic diner items. I could talk about The Woodbury all day long, or you could read my review instead.

The food at The Pearl is wonderful. Truly, I’ve never had a bad meal there. But honestly, I go to brunch there for the Bloody Mary’s. They’re the best drink to spill some morning tea over, and that’s just a fact.
