I have had breakfast at Creekside a couple of times and overall the food, service and atmosphere are very good. It can get busy and there is some outdoor seating. The portions are generous and the food is good.

Service was great and food delicious. I had a breakfast sandwich and he had pancakes. Lots of coffee refills quickly and food came swiftly.

Good diner coffee. Friendly service. Great breakfast place. Ordered the half size of the monster breakfast and still took some home for lunch!

I can't reco the Working Man's breakfast enough! You have tons of food for about $10 😍 great friendly atmosphere that feels warm and familiar.

The wife and I are in Columbus to visit the kids. First time here and early morning arrival. So here we are. Wife had biscuits & gravy and I had blueberry pancakes. Biscuits were nice and fluffy with a light and flavorful gravy. My pancakes...were blueberry filled as opposed to being poured on top. I usually don’t like them filled as there is never enough. But not here. Blueberries in abundance and size. The cake was flavorful as well, like I remember momma making them. The place has a down home atmosphere, reasonably priced and friendly service. An obvious favorite for locals. So go and eat up when in the area. Enjoy RoadBobMore

Came from out of town to meet a friend. My friend is a vegetarian & asked for the bacon on a different plate. I also asked for no powdered sugar on my French toast. When the food came out the bacon was on my friends...plate & powdered sugar on my toast. When my husband said something the waitress said, “I wrute things on the ticket but the kitchen does what they want.” She dropped the plates on the table and walked away. The waitress never filled my husband drink once. Needless to say service is poor. Now that I’m writing this I wish I would have gotten someone in charge. The food wasn’t bad but wasn’t the healthiest. I would recommend trying somewhere different.More

This was our first time eating at Cafe Creekside and we’ll definitely return ASAP! We chose to eat outside, and their seating area overlooks the beautiful creek. The breakfast food was delicious, and the willow tree and passing- by families of ducks and geese made...the experience beautiful. We recommend the frittata, burrito, and waffle! And they also bring a small little muffin after you order and are waiting for your meal, which was an adorable touch. We recommend taking a walk down to the park area to take in more nature and wildlife. Bring oats and birdseed to feed the ducks and geese!More

Cafe above the creek offers a lovely outdoor terrace; food is pretty good diner fare. Setting makes it better! Friendly service.

Great small restaurant in Old Gahanna. Not real expensive. Good amount of food for your money. Try The Big Nasty. A lot of food😮

Visited mid week around 830 and it was pretty quiet. Seated ourselves and we were quickly greeted by our waitress who also happened to be the general manager. She was very friendly and seemed genuinely happy to have us there. I went with the working...man’s breakfast which came with a biscuit and gravy, three slices of bacon, eggs cooked as you like them, sliced red potatoes and your choice of French toast/waffle/pancakes. I was not disappointed at all. Everything was delicious. Bacon cooked perfectly and the sliced red potatoes had a great seasoning to them. Definitely will have to try this place again but for lunch to see how their lunchtime is.More
