For two years straight, our readers have voted Skillet as their favorite place for brunch in Columbus. Their menu features a creative ingredient-driven menu that features local and seasonal products as often as appropriately possible. Chef Kevin Caskey perfectly balances the act of providing an artistic touch to each item while still keeping everything tasting homey and comforting. But remember, this restaurant is very small and has limited seating, so get there early and anticipate that there might be a wait.

    I definitely agree, but foresee Explorer’s Club running up this list next year.

    We love Skillet, but 2011 was the year I was introduced to Katalina’s Matzalan Pork and Egg Sandwich.  I’ve never sat in total awe of a sandwich before this came along.  If there was a category for mind blowing sandwich of 2011, this would be my #1 by a landslide.

    My favorite Sunday brunch is at Whole World Vegetarian Restaurant in Clintonville!  I am sad not to see it on the list.  I’d recommend it to anyone for the friendly service, good value, and delicious food.  Everything they have is great, but my personal favorite thing to get is the vegetable hash with a buttermilk biscuit, which also comes with their signature garnish of a few pieces of seasonal fruit.
