Is there a better breakfast spot in central Ohio than your own kitchen?

One of our panelists in this week's episode believes the best breakfast can be found by heading to a grocery store and grabbing a box of cereal.

But to the bigger connoisseurs of breakfast fare, including fellow panelist Nick Dekker, who created a blog 11 years ago called "Breakfast with Nick," some fantastic breakfast options are just a short drive away.
