Awesome spot in German Village to start your day. Had the Nutella Orange Bostock and it was phenomenal, along with the almond croissant my daughter was eating. Nice outdoor patio, too!

We saw the review on your site for Pistacia Vera and on the 14th of Aug 2014 we stopped there. Needless to say the prior reviews were spot on. We enjoyed the macaroons an we tried all of them. The lemon tart was the best lemon tart I have ever had. Only wish we had this place back in the... More

I am a dessert fan like you would not believe and this place is the icing on the Columbus cake. Some of the best dessert I have ever had. Only problem? They close at 7 so get there early!

I could go on forever about this place! Everything we had was amazing! Quiche, almond crossant, coffee, and the macaroons! Oh man, they had 12 flavors the day I went and I got 11 to go (not a coconut fan) and man, those were all fantastic!!

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
