Hipster brunch: Skillet, Columbus

23 Apr

Skillet is a hipster spot  in Columbus’ German Village  that serves “rustic. urban. food.” Yes, with the punctuation. The place is a square room with small black booths, metal chairs like a classy diner, and wooden tables branded with the restaurant’s name. The menu changes daily but you’re sure to find something mouthwatering. We went on a Saturday for brunch, and found comfort foods like poutine, pain perdu, and a grilled cheese sandwich.
