Not exactly a restaurant per se, but some of the best baked goods and pastries in the country. The salmon tartare and rye croissant with a side order if a couple of macarons is a great treat split between two. Their iced coffee is definitely some of the best I have ever had--and reasonably priced. Don't head down the street... More

I visited here on a Sunday morning, probably their busiest day. I got there early, got coffee and a brioche and sat down at a table to study. Customers came and went and even though they were incredibly busy they never bothered me or asked me to give up my table. I stayed until a little after lunch and got... More

Really don't understand all the hype about this place. Decent dessert selection, but a far cry from being the #1 "restaurant"in Columbus.

We went to this neat little place because of the favorable reviews we read on TripAdvisor.com, and we were not disappointed. Our visit was on a beautiful sunny workday at lunchtime and were able to walk right in and be second in line. You order at the counter, pay, and then make you way to a seat inside or outside....

I placed a phone order with the North Marker location for two dozen french meringue macarons to add a little color to the dessert table for a baby shower. They were a HUGE hit with everyone! I got the assortment of flavors and colors and each had its own distinct taste. I have not eaten any other food there, but... More

This is an amazing bakery. It is among the best I have ever eaten. I'm glad we drove downtown to find it. No wonder it was ranked number one in Columbus.

Ended up here because the cup cake place down the street did not have anything. This is a great desert place. Fresh, flavorful, variety - what more would you want?

I was in Columbus for a conference and knew that I could not leave town without making a stop at Pistacia Vera. They have the most divine macaroons that I have ever tasted and while I was there, enjoyed a steamed Chai Tea prepared to perfection. Each staff member that I encountered was a true testament to great customer service... More
