One thing I have realized since moving to Columbus is that there are a ton of amazing restaurants in the area. One restaurant called Katalina’s has really stood out to me in particular. Katalina’s is a cute cafe-style neighborhood restaurant located on the corner of 3rd and Pennsylvania Avenue in the Victorian Village and is a very popular place to go to for brunch.
Since I live in Grandview, I often go to places that are not located right near Ohio State’s campus. The great thing about Katalina’s is it is only about a 10 minute drive from where I live and about a 10 minute drive from Ohio State’s campus as well. Therefore, this is a very convenient place to go for students living a little further from campus and for students who live closer to campus and are looking for a change of pace.
Katalina’s uses almost all local ingredients to make their Mexican-inspired food. The most unique and popular item at Katalina’s is their pancake balls. You are able to choose the filling you want in the pancake balls with the choice of Nutella, dulce de leche, or pumpkin-apple butter. The pancake balls are served with Katalina’s famous sweet and spicy bacon.
There are numerous other menu choices such as various sandwiches, tacos, and biscuit balls. The line is always out the door at Katalina’s, but I can confidently say that it is well worth the wait. Check out the menu for yourself and if you are looking for something fun and new to try, I highly recommend eating at Katalina’s!
