Top Coffee Spots
These are a few of our favorite coffee shops/cafes. Most within walking distance and a few that are worth a quick drive.
Fantastic New Orleans Iced Coffee and egg sandwiches. You can't pick a bad pastry here either.

If you like to make coffee at home, or want some local beans to take home with you--this is a must stop. Best coffee in the city.

good options for coffee, but the real draw is the free wifi if you need a quiet cozy place to get some work done. Fantastic chocolates and candies if you're looking for a nice gift for someone special!

Stauff’s has a lot of cool flavored coffees and blends and is dog friendly, on the patio for sure but I think inside as well.

Definitely more of a greasy spoon, but great for breakfast basics like pancakes or bacon and eggs, meals here are usually around $5, so definitely getting the best bang for your buck.

Actually located in Harrison West, it’s a quick drive or uber ride to the other side of downtown. They have amazing pancake balls and Huevos Rancheros. There’s usually quite a wait on weekends and it’s a very small place so we usually recommend getting it as a takeout option. Katalina’s is dog friendly on the patio.

The Pearl has an excellent Bloody Mary and a more upscale weekend brunch. Also a good dinner spot, located in the Short North Arts District, so a great option for a night out.

World Famous for the ‘Thurman Burger’ this lunch spot is just one block away on Thurman Ave. Kind of a ‘dive’ but very popular for burgers and wings. Was featured on Man vs. Food!

Olde Mohawk is on the other side of the park, so a walkable lunch destination. They are known for their turtle soup and extremely outdated décor, but it’s a great mom and pop establishment with ‘home cooked’ food.

This is a vegan/vegetarian restaurant, but you would honestly never know it! So delicious, great for lunch or dinner. It’s on Parsons Ave. maybe half a mile away, which is on the way to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. I recommend calling ahead for lunch and dinner, it books up quickly.

North Star is in the Short North Arts District and has great coffee and pressed juices, as well as delicious brunch and lunch options. I believe it’s all organic. Their salads and North Star Veggie burger are my personal favorites. If you like Mediterranean, the owners of this restaurant also own Brassica, which is a chipotle-style build your own bowl place down the street. It’s good for a quick lunch and it’s SO yummy.

Dinner & Drinks
Date worthy dinner spots and the best places to experience Columbus nightlife!
Walking distance on South High st. This place has great cocktails and an excellent fried chicken dinner (you can order it for 2 or 4, they do a sharing style concept). Also highly recommend the brussels sprouts!

Lindey’s is an upscale dinner place on Mohawk st. Technically walking distance, but probably uber distance in Ohio winter weather. They use a lot of local ingredients and have an amazing chef. Matt and I do our anniversary dinner here every year.

Super convenient, the south village grille is just on the corner of Thurman and Jaeger, caddy corner from Fox in the Snow. They have excellent salads and fish dishes, and I’ve heard their chicken sandwich is delicious.

This is a restaurant that a local brewery opened up. Great food and awesome beer that you can sample in flights. This place books up, so I recommend calling ahead for a reservation.

My all-time favorite place for cocktails in the city. It’s walking distance on South High st. Owned by Seventh Son (see breweries list) they specialize in sour beers and fancy cocktails. Awesome ambiance, bit of an older, calmer crowd.

This is the ultimate ‘party bar.’ They have over 50 beers on tap usually and lots of big screen TVs to watch whatever game might be on that day. Pint House is in the Short North Arts District, so a fairly young crowd that gets pretty rowdy after 10pm.

Walking distance between front st. and high st. just a few blocks West. This is a gastropub that is great for sports-spectating. We watch the NCAA basketball tournament from this bar pretty religiously.

Juniper is a swanky cocktail bar that is an all-glass enclosed rooftop space near the Short North Arts District. They host a lot of events there, so you’d have to call to make sure they are open to the public on a given night, but it’s a great spot to see a view of the whole city.
