G.A. Benton, Columbus Alive

Procrastinator's wake-up call: Sunday is Mother's Day, so if you don't wanna achieve Ungrateful Child status by missing the sure-to-sell-out Mother's Day brunch boat, you should launch your restaurant reservation efforts ASAP!

Yes, the brunch scene is wildly popular in Columbus - probably because it's a smart way to sample a buzzy restaurant's cuisine at bargain basement prices. For example, the following guaranteed delicious, not-run-of-the-mill brunch dishes - of both the sweet and savory persuasions - from great Columbus brunch destinations all clock in under $15.

Oh, and remember, brunch is almost always better when washed down with a set-you-right Bloody Mary. Bon appetit.
