My daughter, her friend, and I are making a day trip to Cincinnati the Sunday after next. We're arriving on the Greyhound bus about 10:30 a.m. The event is at the Woodward Theater on Main St. in Over the Rhine at noon.

Is there a good place to have breakfast downtown that is open on Sunday morning? This would be to eat, and also to kill a little time. If the place has Wi-Fi, so much the better. (Not a requirement, but it would be nice, if possible.)

Thanks!

In downtown there's always FirstWatch ("The Daytime Cafe") at 700 Walnut Street, open 7am-2:30pm daily. On Sunday morning this restaurant serves a lot of people, including many out-of-towners. And, in Cincy's compact core, it's not all that far from the Greyhound bus station. (Take a look at the FirstWatch website for more information, including directions and menu.)

Findlay Market has many great breakfast options such as Taste of Belgium waffles and crepes and there is free wifi. Another great option that is a very close walk from the bus station would be Cheapside Cafe that has the best French toast I've ever eaten.

Firstwatch is a bland chain. It is dressed up IHOP.

In downtown and OTR, Tucker's is your best bet. Not top level caliber breakfast, but probably the best I have had in Cincinnati.There was a nice crowd a few weeks ago for Sunday brunch.

Me three for Tucker's!!!
They had vegetarian options before hipsters even existed. And they attract a genuine cross-section of society to "tuck" into their cooking, instead of only the yuppies who swarm around "OTR" a few blocks south in search of the perfect Belgian waffle or cheat-meal doughnut.

Tucker's rocks. The hash browns are to die for.

In "short order" (pun intended), several serious concerns about this visit need to be addressed:

(1) There's absolutely no way to disembark from a Greyhound bus at exactly 10:30 am, walk to and enjoy breakfast at any one of the aforementioned restaurants and then attend a Woodward Theater event at 12 pm. Under the uncertainty of actual bus arrival time, familiarity with downtown Cincinnati, walking distance combined with restaurant seating and serving times, better consider brown bagging something to eat.

(2) Please realize that three posters (#6,7,8) don't even live in Cincinnati and that their combined recommendations for Tuckers need to be challenged. Despite this gritty restaurant's reputation as an iconic eatery, it's the one farthest away and most problematic. First of all, unless one is immediately picked up by taxi at the bus station (a la "Cinderella's coach") and whisked to Tucker's front door, there's going to be a long walk to this restaurant that involves crossing Liberty Street into the north side of Over-the-Rhine. On a Sunday morning, three visitors to the city really don't need to be doing this unless they're seeking a heightened sense of adventure.

(3) Most certainly, OTR's historic Findlay Market (including The Taste of Belgium) is worthy of a visit, but an extended one that such a tight schedule as this simply cannot accommodate (at least before the theater).

MOTR and Taste of Belgium's restaraunt (not Findlay Market) are very close to Woodward Theater. You can always skip the traditional breakfast if you're really pressed for time and load up on donuts at Holtman's. Not healthy but YUM!
