#cbusfoodbloggers: brunch at Balboa

Ladies and gentlemen of Columbus:  if you aren’t eating tacos for breakfast you are doing it all wrong.


The lovely breakfast taco specimen you see here came straight from Balboa in Grandview where the #cbusfoodbloggers gang met up for brunch earlier this month.  When it comes to tacos, the #cbusfoodbloggers practice what we preach, and Balboa’s brunch  menu has us all covered, with breakfast tacos PLUS seven tacos off the regular menu.

Did you know Balboa is part of a family of restaurants owned by Swanson Hospitality group?  The restaurant group includes Balboa, Bodega, Hadley’s, and the soon-to-be-reopened Grandview Cafe!  After eating our weight in tacos at Balboa, we took a leisurely stroll next door to get a sneak peak of the work happening at Grandview Cafe!


There’s lots of work to be completed, but they are projecting a March or April opening.  The revamped space will include garage-style doors, huge open windows, and awesome outdoor seating.  We’re looking forward to checking out the completed renovation this spring!
