Breakfast!!

I have heard about the famous pancake balls at Katalina's , so I finally got a chance to taste them:) There were 3 choices; caramel, nutella, and pumpkin/apple butter. I opted for the pumpkin/apple buter ones. You get about 7 with a side of bacon, it was very filling. Very cute atmosphere, small... read more

I had brunch here with 3 family members while visiting Columbus. I had read other reviews claiming it was overpriced but wanted to give it a try any way. I did not realize until we arrived that the only seating was outdoors on wooden picnic tables but it was a fairly nice day so we stayed. Service was rather slow... More

It was a beautiful summer day, perfect for breakfast outdoors. It was VERY crowded. We placed our order and then stood in a corner on the deck. Just before our food arrived a table cleared...yeah!There were plenty of sweet and savory options, all of them unusual and quite excellant. Prices were higher than I expected, $9-12.

Went this morning and my husband and we loved their pancake balls and French toast! The sweet and spicy bacon is amazing- you must try it. In a great, cute neighborhood setting. You order at the counter and seat yourself. Awesome restaurant

Eclectic ambiance and a VERY attentive friendly staff. Summer patio dining the best bet---can be crowed inside if weather is bad. Food is fresh and delicious----the Veggie tacos and Tomole soup are excellent!!!

The breakfast tacos, bacon & Nutella pancake balls are awesome although a little expensive. I will continue to dine here.

Thought it was pricey and food average. Got the huevos rancheros and they were too choppy and not a lot of sauce or huevos. Also got the pancake Nutella balls. They were ok. My wife got the migas and a watermelon lemonade. 38.70 plus tip

We stop here for brunch each trip to Columbus. The food is creative, fresh and well done. Can't go wrong with the pancake balls and spicy/sweet bacon. This time we also got their special sandwich with egg, avocado, pork, cheese and split it. It was totally fine to split and delicious for sure!! I got the watermelon mint lemonade- it... More

I'm serious. Their bacon is the most amazing thing ever! I had the BLT and it is the best BLT I have ever tasted due to their sweet and spicy bacon. Their pancake balls are also very unique and delicious! You can get them filled with Nutella, caramel, jam.... Sooooooo goood!!!
