We were in town for a week visiting a friend, and Pistacia Vera instantly became our destination at least twice a day. We'd walk down for a decaf and a (rye!) croissant for breakfast, and later wander past for a latte and a couple of macarons. We tried as many different items as we could (well, except for the croissants,... More

Fabulous pastery, cakes and cookies. It really reminds me of a bakery in France. I usually just stop by this cute little place to pick up a desert for home or for a party.

We stayed in German Village for 3 nights... and we had coffee and French macarons each day. We especially liked the ones made to look like a Buckeye. Nice touch. The service is very friendly... so that makes it a little different than a real French cafe, but nothing else is different. Great coffee... and all the pastries looked great... More

We had a late breakfast last Sunday with friends. Be prepared for great tasting, high quality, high calorie quiche, pastries and cookies. Coffee and lattes were very good. Staff very helpful and friendly. Relatively small location, San Francisco feel, and appeared family friendly. Seating is an issue but the staff worked hard to accommodate all. We will return.

Great dessert destination. Lemon tart and chocolate chip pistachio cookies did not disappoint. Was somewhat noisy inside. Placing orders is a little awkward - the counter area doesn't have good flow for customers.

I just adore pistacia vera. Try the macarons. Wow!! It is like this beautiful sugar cloud. The chocolate bomb cake is a must try. It is very rich but worth every bite. Have a nice strong espresso on the side. Make sure to also take home some pistachio chocolate chip cookies. They are my favorite!!

This place is great... I am not a big fan of too many restaurants in Columbus, but this is a great place to just come and relax. Its a must see.

This is the place to go if you have a celiac or gluten sensitivity. The macarons are some of the best pastries/desserts that you can get. You can get a dozen in any flavor (in flavors that are either perennial or seasonal) you want or a dozen as a sampler (one of each flavor that they have)

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!
