The Midwest Travel Writers Breakfast

May 19, 2016

As part of the Midwest Travel Writers Association visit last week (read about one of the tours I helped lead here), I helped organize a special breakfast event for them at the Columbus Museum of Art. Held in the bright and beautiful Derby Court, the event was a showcase of Columbus breakfast.

I’m telling you: I was in my element. I got to share some of my favorite Columbus breakfast spots with visitors, telling their stories and sampling their food. The writers experienced breakfast from Pistacia Vera, Katalina’s, Fox in the Snow, Snowville Creamery, Kolache Republic, Flowers & Bread (coming soon to Clintonville!), and One Line Coffee.

The writers spent about five days total in Columbus, being shown our city’s arts, fashion, parks, shopping, food, and drink. Throughout the breakfast, some of the business owners spoke to the group about what they do, like Warren Taylor from Snowville discussing how “God didn’t make milk wrong.”

Jeff and Lauren from Fox in the Snow Cafe brought pretzels rolls and cinnamon rolls…

Kathleen Day from Katalina’s brought trays of Nutella-filled pancake balls and her signature sweet & spicy bacon.

Sarah Black, the baker from Flowers & Bread, made these beautiful bread wreaths with sugared citrus and rosemary oil. The was a special sneak preview for all of us; Flowers & Bread is set to open this summer in Clintonville as a combined bakery, coffee shop, and floral studio.

We also had Mick Evans from One Line Coffee on hand, to give the writers a taste of Columbus coffee and talk about the Coffee Trail (which just re-launched with more stops – get your passport soon!)

Here’s a sample for you: croissants and jam from Pistacia Vera, sweet and savory kolaches from Kolache Republic, pretzel roll from Fox in the Snow, toasted focaccia with Snowville butter from Flowers & Bread, a pancake ball and sweet & spicy bacon from Katalina’s, plus some eggs from the Museum’s in-house catering.

All in all, it was a wonderful event. I love getting to showcase Columbus breakfast. Thanks to all the restaurants, the crew from the Museum, and everyone from Experience Columbus and Weirick Communications for bringing me on board!
