After checking out some reviews online, we decided to trust the masses and try Tommy’s Diner. A little off the beaten path and a couple miles west of our hotel downtown, Tommy’s was crawling with people.
As the reviews suggested, Tommy’s has got every detail of the diner vibe covered, from the black-and-white checkered floors to the shiny red vinyl booths. Even our waitress looked the part with a scarf tied around her head and bright red lipstick. Love it!
There’s something magical about a place that you can basically roll out of bed and go without having to do much of anything to yourself first. Believe me when I tell you there’s no judgment here; just down-to-earth, hungry peeps.
After perusing the menu for a time, I decided on the cinnamon swirl french toast and bacon, and WOW what a treat it was:
Apparently they knew that a giant scoop of butter is the way to my heart. That and the beautiful thick slices of cinnamon bread, along with some thick-sliced bacon – this breakfast couldn’t have been any better. Perfection.
DZ went for the “big breakfast” which obviously lived up to its name:
And yes, he ate every bite. The ham was the highlight, sweet and salty, and the home fries were tasty too, nice and golden brown. Bottom line: Tommy’s is a must eat when visiting Columbus. You can’t get any better than this breakfast, and it’s definitely worth venturing a little out of town for.
