The Foodie’s Guide to Easton

Share this post:

Every foodie in central Ohio can raise their spoons and forks to the wide selection of restaurants at Easton. We pride ourselves on being a haven for foodies everywhere whether you are stopping for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Whether you classify as an experienced foodie or a chicken-fingers-only eater, we have something for everyone!


Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day, and we are never one to turn down a creamy latte or a plate full of fruit-adorned waffles—especially before a day of shopping. Our first stop on the tour is all things brunch. 

True Food Kitchen
True Food Kitchen is an award-winning restaurant with a health-driven seasonal menu, and natural beverages, with gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan options. A brunch menu is offered every Saturday and Sunday until 3 pm. Grab your friends and enjoy an insta-worthy brunch with selections like an egg and chicken sausage sandwich or gluten-free banana pancakes, and delicious craft cocktails (served after 12 pm on Sundays).

Northstar Café
Northstar Café is the spot for locally grown and organic foods that support local producers. The café features open kitchens and has specialty drinks and wholesome breakfast options available to order.


Sometimes, nothing can beat a classic burger and fries. Whether you want just a classic cheeseburger or are feeling adventurous with your burger toppings, we have a wide range of burger places that will quickly become your new favorite spot. 

Shake Shack
Shake Shack recently opened at Easton and is an East Coast staple that is now right here in Columbus. This favorite burger joint serves up delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. 

Flip Side
Flip Side is a local Ohio favorite for those who love a gourmet burger. Burgers from Flip Side weigh seven ounces and are made with all-natural, grass-fed Ohio beef. Not sure which burger to try? Here are a few suggestions: Chili Pepper Burger, Forester Burger or the non-beef Curry Lamb Burger!


Like the great Dean Martin said, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore.” 

Pies & Pints
It’s no wonder Pies & Pints was featured in the Food Network Magazine’s 50 Pizzas in 50 States and Huffington Post’s Top 20 Pizzeria in the USA! Handmade crust, fresh ingredients and unique style is an integral part of each pizza. Pies & Pints also offers a wide collection of handcrafted beers from breweries all over the world. 

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse
From deep dish to tavern cut, and even gluten-free, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse has pizza for every taste! Meticulously crafted Chicago-style deep-dish with a Southern California twist is what BJ’s is known for.
