Breakfast With Nick's guidebook to breakfast in Columbus, featuring old school diners, upscale brunches, coffee shops, & donut joints!

Where do you find the best donuts in Columbus? Which neighborhood has the most welcoming diner? Who serves old school sausage gravy and biscuits in town? Where’s the closest coffee shop to my hotel? Where do I find a good Vietnamese breakfast in town? Have no fear. Breakfast With Nick has the answers.

We've created a guidebook titled Breakfast With Nick: Columbus. It's the complete guide to the morning meal in Columbus, Ohio. Our goal is to help everyone discover the unique places for breakfast, brunch, coffee, and donuts, and to show those places in a new way.

Breakfast blogger Nick Dekker ( has partnered with photographer and designer Robin Oatts ( to create the book. We're trying to introduce Columbus residents and visitors to the hidden gems that make Columbus' culinary scene so unique. Even if you have an old favorite, we hope to show it in a new way, by telling the story of these restaurants and showing off their beauty with Robin's photography. We hope that our book is another step in showing off Columbus' amazing dining scene, which has received national attention in recent years.

We need backers to help us fund the first printing of the book. Essentially, by backing this project you are pre-ordering your copy of the book. To show our gratitude, you'll get a bonus breakfast-themed notebook (to record your own breakfast adventures!) and a special thanks in the book itself. This is in addition to your copy of the book, of course. All of the funds will go toward paying for the first printing. We’re having the book printed by a local Columbus company (to be determined), and are aiming for an initial run of 500-1000 copies.

The book's release date is November 5, 2011. That night, we'll have a release party where we'll sample food from the featured restaurants, begin selling books, and celebrate Columbus' breakfast scene!
