Tommy’s Diner | Columbus, Ohio

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.
