Resident Foodies say: Tasi Cafe is a small, hidden gem in the Short North. Tucked away off High Street (turn on Brickel St. and then at corner of Pearl), Tasi is short on space (communal tables and smaller tables), but long on assorted selections for breakfast and lunch daily (and dinner on Friday and Saturday). The lunch sandwiches are very creative and tasty (e.g., open faced zoe tuna salad, with capers relish, onions, hard boiled egg, on sourdough toast), but today we sampled some good old fashioned breakfast! We had the huevos rancheros, and two different cafe fritattes with mesclun salad–one with chorizo, potatoes, onions, peppers, and the other with mozzarella, spinach, and roasted tomato. They were delicious. You can’t find this kind of selection anywhere else in Columbus. Oh, and the baked goods are amazing. The place gets packed on the weekend, so be prepared to wait some for a table and find a spot at the communal tables.
