Our top vegetarian-friendly breakfast picks

Angry Baker

891 Oak St., Olde Towne East


A restaurant pioneer in Olde Town, Angry Baker serves locally sourced breakfasts to folks from all over the city. While the menu changes with the season, a few vegetarian and vegan options are constants.

Angry Baker adds a little green to the breakfast plate with their Baked Eggs: a rich casserole-like concoction of spinach, eggs and parmesan, served alongside a fresh salad. Another popular option is their vegan version of biscuits and gravy.

Starliner Diner

5240 Cemetery Rd., Hilliard


Serving Cuban and Mexican fare since 1994, this eclectic eatery is worth a trip to Hilliard. (Live in the area? Lucky you.) The wall of retro sun tchotchkes will shine upon you as you peruse the wide selection of meat-free breakfast options.

Favorites include their epic Vegetarian Breakfast Burrito, served with a generous portion of black beans, and the chilaquiles with zucchini, corn and cilantro.

Surly Girl

1126 N. High St., Short North


Wake up at noon? No worries. At Surly Girl, brunch is served until 4 p.m.—and, as with all Columbus Food League restaurants, the menu is clearly marked with vegetarian and vegan options.

Start the day with their Black Bean Huevos ‘Surlitos.’ Served with red-skin potatoes and fresh orange slices, this Tex-Mex dish will give you the energy to make the afternoon productive. Or to order another Bloody Mary. Whatever.
