Inspired by Australian coffee culture, Emmett’s is our top pick for morning hangouts with a flat white or cold brew. This laid-back spot recently opened a second, much larger and brighter location at the Open Air building, a renovated school building in Old North. Open until 2pm during the work week, the cafe offers wifi and plenty of space to spread out with a few coworkers. Food options go far beyond pastries, with options like overnight oats, filling breakfast sandwiches, grain bowls, wraps, and even a wagyu burger. In the afternoon, be sure to check out Emmett’s neighbor, the Commons, with its patio overlooking the Olentangy Trail and tasty palomas.
