Italian Breakfast at Spagio.

Today was oddly cool after a week of warm weather, so I decided to go get Spagio's brunch to enjoy the sprinkly rain inside. I've always had good experience at Spagio's brunch, and today was no exception. On top of the good food, I was with great company too! (I can't reveal who my brunch companion was at this point... so...) Anyways, on with the food.

I had Spagio's breakfast punch to start my brunch. Their breakfast punch flavor changed every week and had no alcohol since it's Sunday in Ohio, which I had no problem with since I'm only a entry level alcoholic. Their punch consisted of respberry, cranberry, and grapefruit with a splash of Sprite. The resulting virgin punch was delicious! The berry's tartness was cut down by the sweetness of grapefruit and Sprite. A splash a lime also gave a little bit of freshness to the fruit punch. I ordered the omelette of the day, which consisted crab meat, cream cheese, bell peppers, and some green onions sprinkled on top. The egg wrapped around the omelette ingredients was medium thickness and in the over-easy level, which worked well with the soft texture of the cream cheese and sweet crab meat. The bell pepper gave a crunch to the omelette and the little green onion sprinkle gave a little kick to the mild tasted omelette. The combination worked very well.

The omelette was served with home fries and mixed salad. The home fries were absolutely delicious. They were slowly cooked and had some carmelization to the potato. They were done very simple, yet simply delicious! The mixed spring salad was slightly dressed with french vinaigrette, which brightened the whole dish and rounded out the plate.

Spagio's brunch got a 3.75 out of 5 on my yummy scale. Their breakfast brunch was definitely something that you have to try. And I love the fact that everyone was in church on Sunday morning and there was no crowd before 12:30.

If you would like to start your morning with freshness and good food, please go to Spagio at 1295 Grandview Ave. Columbus, OH 43212.

From a more experienced alcoholic, Sunday liquor laws vary from county to county, and even by townships within them. And they occasionally even change!

For example, it used to be that you couldn't buy beer or wine at Trader Joe's in Dublin until 1 PM on a Sunday; now it's 10 AM. In Hilliard, on the other hand, at the stellar Starliner Diner, last I was there, it was not possible to order a bloody Mary with brunch until an hour after noon.

(The Starliner Diner is at 5240 Cemetery Road. Call 614.529.1198 for hours; check out their menu on the web.)

So what defines a 'more experienced alcoholic'? :)

Spagio's does sell alcohol after 1, I guess to mean that you shouldn't be sloshed in church or something like that.......

Well, one criterion would seem to be a familiarity with local liquor laws that might go so far as to suggest that the subject has on more than one occasion tried to find a place to drink on a Sunday morning.

Yeah, Sunday liquor laws are basically there to enforce morality. As if anyone who really wanted to drink instead of going to church wasn't just going to stock up on Saturday.

That is a pretty good criterion...btw, if anyone is interested, Spagio also offers in-kitchen cooking classes as well:
