Macaroons=:-)

Service is always nice and helpful. The macaroons are great-light, not overly sweet, and almost refreshing!. Lots of interesting flavors.

I love this place. I don't make it to downtaown area very often but I try and get my husband to pick up macarons there when he can. It has a nice atmosphere and the seating outside is very popular in the warmer months. They have all kind of treats, cookies, pastries, food etc to choose from. But their macarons... More

Everything here is good. It costs more than most pastries, but I have not had anything that was bad. It looks good. It tastes good. And there can be quite a line on a Saturday morning. The coffee is also good, but it's the pastries that make you come back. Again. And again.

If you find yourself in Columbus a stop at Pistacia Vera is an absolute must. A good friend of mine goes to Ohio State and I stop in every time I'm down. The sandwiches are great but its the macaroons and croissants that steal the show. The Pain au Chocolat is my go to but really its hard to go... More

This small place in German Village is very popular, and for good reason. They have great coffee and delicious pastries, including house made macarones in a variety of flavors. You order at the counter, and they deliver your selections.

We came here and had a few of the dishes. There was a crab dish which was okay and a bacon sandwich with the cheese on the outside which was very tasty - a touch overpriced for the amount you get. Then we had a couple of chocolate truffles, a couple of macaroons (pistachio of course and another); these were... More

Having sampled the mini bombe on each and every trip to Columbus and brought a couple home in a cooler, given the weather on this trip - below 20F - we decided to try the regular sized bombe at approximately 16 times the size of a single mini - the cost on a volume basis being less than half of...
