There are a lot of great LGBT bars in Columbus, but Union Cafe edged out the competition this year. Maybe it’s the awesome patio that makes for perfect Short North people-watching on a warm summer day. Or maybe it’s the swanky atmosphere that goes perfectly with the extensive martini list. Or maybe it’s the menu of upscale comfort foods — with anytime breakfast! Or maybe Union Cafe just does a lot of cool things, and when you put them together you have a winner.
