Our Story

We want to take this opportunity to say thank you. Our tremendous success is because of you, our loyal customers, who have allowed us to become a part of your family. We also want to thank all the individuals who have helped spread the word by leaving kind reviews online. These recommendations are one of the greastest gifts you can give to a local establishment like ours.


You may not have noticed, but in 2018, Patty took over the day-to-day operations at the restaurant. Patty brings an unrivialed passion and a special attention to detail that has greatly benefited our menu and overall operations. She has also aided the devlopment of our wonderful team here at OPH by focusing on preparing superior food and delivering warm, friendly customer service.


We're very proud of our team. All our employees have previous industry experience and have been through our comprehensive training programs that teach preparation, food quality and the importance of creating memorable guest experiences.


The result is a supportive team, fully capable of guiding customers through our extensive menu while being attentive to their dietary needs and special requests.


The love and devotion we have to our team and our restaurant has even extended to our daughter, Michelle. She has become the unoffical ambassador for the OPH brand, all while being a fulltime student in the Upper Arlington School System.


Along with most other aspects of our restaurant, Ruben's role has also evolved. He is now fully committed to pursuing future OPH locations. We love what we've built here in UA and are working hard to expand in central Ohio next year.


As it was when we opend our doors two years ago, we remain committed to honoring the great OPH recipes developed and perfected by Les and Ron Highet way backk in the 1950s. It's this blend of traditional and modern concepts that is fueling our success and allowing us to become one of the premier breakfast destimations in all of Columbus.
