Sunday morning screams for amazing breakfast or brunch! And when we’re not at home, it’s always fun to check out somewhere new and inventive. On our recent trip to the Columbus, OH area for some Christmas shopping, we decided to check out SuperChef’s Breakfast & More in Gahanna. Located just east of the I-270 loop, this strip mall eatery did not disappoint. I’ll admit the exterior with bright graphics and large pictures of food reminded me of an oversized Chinese menu in a mall food court, but it’s all part of the schtick for this comics-themed brunch spot.
A lively place with plenty of seating packed into a tight spot, there is an overabundance of energy in the morning with the perfect backdrop of conversation and the aromas of coffee and syrup. A large wall in the rear of the restaurant is covered with comic book covers and characters which were complimented by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirts the staff were wearing. After a short wait we perused the menu choices with amazing “bam-kapow” comic book takes on traditional breakfast fare. Think of green waffles with bacon, egg and cheese – that’s “The Hulk”.
We sipped strong coffee and then dug into our choices, all of which were really good. Breakfast pizza was a thin chewy crust with eggs, cheese, bacon, house-made sausage, tomato and parsley. I had a tasty croissant sandwich made with sausage (a spicy chorizo-like breakfast patty), eggs, cheese and mustard vinaigrette dressed greens. What a perfect addition to cut through the fatty richness of the rest of the sandwich! The omelets were hefty and full of fresh ingredients. Most dishes are served with chunky hash browns browned with topped with a dollop of spicy butter – I know, genius idea!
With another location in downtown Columbus, I would recommend trying this place out for a great brunch any day of the week. The waffle and pancake combinations looked ridiculous – wings & waffles or blueberry pancakes with lemon buttercream are just a few of the choices! Add those choices to a great cup of strong coffee and really good service and you’ll see why there was a wait to get in.
