Brunch at CBC

It has been a while since we have taken the whole crew out for a meal, since Rhys is getting to that "fun" stage where restaurants are just one big ball pit and sugar packets are confetti. But for Mother's Day, I was dying to go to brunch and have been wanting to try Columbus Brewing Company (CBC) for about a year.

It is easy to find and park, right off 70 and Front Street. They have their own lot, which is a rare find at the best restaurants anymore.


We made reservations for 11:00, and from about 10:50-11:00, a long line formed at the door. I am not sure if this is typical, but it didn't affect anything. We were seated right away and service wasn't delayed.

The kids had crayons and menus with standard kid-fare at decent prices. They're always happy with waffles, so we ordered two of those (4.95 each). Their drinks came with lids and straws, and high chairs were in abundance. I checked the bathrooms for changing tables, and those were there too. So, this place is definitely equipped for children.



They have a large, covered patio and the rest of the restaurant is open and bright. I didn't take pictures of the dining area because it was a full house and I was trying to enjoy my time without being too much of a journalist. Does this scene make you wonder what kind of brunch beverages we got?


The Rosa's Mosa is fabulous mix of white sangria and a mimosa. Refreshing, not too sweet, and the perfect match for my meal.


I can't resist a good waffle. I just can't. So, mine came with homemade whipped cream and fruit. I would have loved more strawberries, but I proceeded to inhale the whole thing anyway. Their batter is awesome, and the kids' leftover reheated beautifully the next day (because I ate them). And the CBC sausage links were the savory I needed after the sweet waffle.


Matt got a cheeseburger, which he really liked, and everyone shared the garlic fries!  The ketchup of course ended up on the floor and wall (and my roses) but HEY, it was worth it for those fries.

Both our moms got the chicken and waffles, and I was immediately envious when theirs arrived. It is kind of my thing, but I felt like I should go rogue and lay off this time. Luckily, they let me sample some of the cornflake-breaded chicken. Perfection! It was so crunchy and satisfying. My mother in law was raving over the potato and pepper hash that is hidden under the chicken.


Everyone at our large table said they can't wait to go back to CBC and I would definitely suggest it to anyone looking for a great brunch spot. And if you are into beer (they are a brewery after all), we saw lots of beer flights being served and I know they have a great reputation for their beer. Enjoy!

On a sad note, Rhys was ready to walk up and down Liberty Street like he owned the place, so we did not get to try dessert. BUT, if you sign up for their e-news club, you can print off a coupon for one of their famous, house made desserts!!
