Photos: the renovated Honey Dip Donuts & Diner

Fans of the Kenny Road institution Honey Dip Donuts will know that it closed in early June for renovation. After about two months out of commission, they recently re-opened as the Honey Dip Donuts & Diner.

The new layout has lost maybe some of that old-school, outdated donut shop charm, but the new version re-captures most of it, and offers some bonuses. First, is the expanded seating areas.

In addition to the long counter, there are more two- or four-top tables.

The space is also overall brighter. Big windows, lots of new lighting. And there’s still the long, low counter with the little stools, where you can hang out with a donut and a cup of coffee.

You can also see into the kitchen. That offers more of the classic diner experience, allowing you to hear the hustle and bustle of the kitchen and see the cooks set your order up in the window.

One of the biggest changes is the addition of breakfast and lunch to the menu (this is very exciting news for a breakfast blogger). Now, while sampling a donut or two, you can also enjoy eggs and home fries, omelets, pancakes, French toast, and breakfast sandwiches.

Of course, there are still all the classic donuts. That certainly didn’t change. There’s one giant shelf up top, plus the smaller display case below. Out of respect, I didn’t take a picture of top shelves; we visited late in the day and they were mighty picked over.

I’m curious to know what others think of the new space! I hope to get in and try the breakfast soon. I’ll certainly post pictures when I do.

About Breakfast with Nick

I love breakfast. So I eat it a lot, & write about it. In my city of Columbus, Ohio & wherever I travel, I'm out to find & enjoy all the breakfasts out there.

  1. We went yesterday and it was quite good! Total for 2 meals (1 egg sandwich, 1 eggs/toast/home fries), 1 coffee, and 3 donuts, was $12.50 before tip. The home fries could have been a bit crispier, but the scrambled eggs were good–not rubbery, not too dry or too wet. We’d been frequenting The Best over in Westerville, but Honey Dip is closer to home and almost or just as tasty.
