...and then finish up with an eclair! Refined cafe with delectable pastries, and sandwiches, etc. Worth a trip...and it 's a short walk from The Book Loft. One of the best Croques that I've had!

Great coffee and homemade french pastries. Nice outside seating so you can bring your dog. Sit and people watch.

This place has an unbelievable assortment of macarons! Great drinks, a pleasant atmosphere in the heart of German Village. A great place to stop and watch the pedestrians walk by on a sunny fall day!

Was able to call ahead for my orders and it was ready for pick up promptly. I ordered for HS girls and adults and they all loved the "goodies " although I personal favourites were the littke merangues

We specifically come here for the pistachio macaroons. They are the best and most delicious ones that we have ever had

I am absolutely in love with the macaroons from this bakery! I will make a special trip just to get some when I am in Columbus. I have not had a flavor that I have not enjoyed - a must try! Not a macaroon fan,...More

Loved this small but delightful place. Great coffee, you can sit outside or in. Small place but food is also excellent. Made right in the back room our lunch special was gone already but the quiche was second choice and awesome. Help yourself to water...More

The choice of desserts is not too long, but they are all very appealing and the one I've tried (chocolate bomb) was very-very tasty, an excellent chocolate cake the way it should be. The coffee machine did not work when I came, hence 4 stars...More

Beautiful floor to ceiling windows with cafe tables and chairs in them beckoned me. Then I saw them.. all of the amazing gluten free desserts! So many! And so pretty! They taste as good as they look! Try the macaroons and the strawberry cake!

I love visiting this amazing Cafe. The coffee is wonderful as are the pastries. The macarons are to die for with such an interesting selection of flavors...all are delicious. Brunch is excellent too. I have never been disappointed when I stop into this fabulous place.

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.
