Do you ever just want to have a real breakfast? Not trendy, no combinations of oddly paired foods just good old fashioned straight forward American breakfast- this is the place! Friendly cozy neighborhood feel, super nice staff, great pancakes, honest eggs and at amazing prices - I left a big tip in case the left something off the bill. Highly... More

What determines a good restaurant? Other than taste of the food, another most important element is the atmosphere and service, and this place has definitely achieved that. Tucked away along one of the small streets in the German Village, this place is small but you can feel the cosy-ness, energy and vibrancy of a restaurant meant for the people. The... More

Our group was so pleased with the variety and quality of breakfast meals offered we went there 3 times in our week long stay in Columbus. We were 4 or 5 each time, and were sent straight to the large back booth. We had everything from oatmeal to sausage, with eggs cooked in a variety of ways. Nothing was left... More

The place is small but staff is attentive and efficient. You get in and get out. Great cup of coffee to start. We had basic eggs bacon sausage. Bacon was good, crunchy and tasted like bacon. Great portions for the price.

My husband and I have been visiting the Coffee Shop for more than a decade and we still love it! The wait staff are regular and they treat you like a regular the first time you visit. The food choices are vast and the prices are awesome! There is a daily special on the board that you can check out... More

I love this place. Food is very good ( they have the best bacon) and a great value. Their pancakes are huge! Staff is very friendly and attentive. A lot of locals go their so you know it's good. Love the breakfast sandwich as well.

I hate to give this a 5 because it will make it harder to get a seat. I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered from the inexpensive menu. The highlights include the perfectly cooked bacon, giant pancakes, juicy 1/2 lb burgers and the "Best Club Sandwich in the City". The building is not new so expect only... More

Had the club sandwich, stacked about 6" high...and a salad with chicken. Both are absolutely worth a trip back there. This is a small diner, right next to Thurman's, but wow...it does not disappoint. The pancakes were mammoth.
