This Columbus mini chain is dedicated to using organic and sustainable ingredients whenever possible, which means this is a restaurant you can feel good about frequenting. At breakfast, everyone adores the fluffy Cloud Nine Pancakes, made with ricotta and topped with fresh fruit and warm maple syrup. Adventurous kids will dig the Kids Bowl with brown rice, steamed veggies, chicken and peanut sauce - but the tomato-and-cheese flatbread pizza is a safe bet for picky eaters. The family-friendliest location is at Easton, where a Boylan's fountain dispenses root beer and other sodas made with cane sugar.
