My friend and I stopped here for a quick bite after visiting the Book Loft. We each got Iced Tea and a dessert. I LOVED my lemon tart. The cafe was the perfect place to sit and chat while enjoying refreshments. Would highly recommend.

A superb "bakery" that has a lock on some of the most delicious cookies, breads and breakfast/lunch items in Columbus. Often very busy it helps to go off peak hours. Cannot recommend this place high enough.

They are in the North Market in Columbus and have a store front in German Village on Third St,. The quality and expertise of their goods cannot be beat! If you are a foodie- you are in for a treat.

Service was great. Coffee was delicious. Macaroons are my favorite. Atmosphere was inviting and felt like this is where the "cool kids" hang out.

If you are into macaroons...this place is the place. Their other desserts are just so so. I recommend the crime brûlée if your going to steer away from the macaroons

As my city mates mentioned above, they do indeed. Try the quiches--they are great and served with a side salad! Let yourself be tempted by the lovely parties as well.
