Best Brunch: Northstar Cafe

Vegetarian-friendly Northstar Cafe earned top marks in the Best Brunch category thanks in part to its fluffy, aptly-named Cloud Nine pancakes dotted with ricotta cheese (served with Ohio maple syrup); homemade granola; and the giddy-up-and-go, huge Cowboy Breakfast with homemade sausage. The organic fruit smoothies and made-your-way local eggs are also great ways to begin winding down the weekend.

Runners-up: Worthington Inn, Betty's Fine Food & Spirits
