We come here all the time and are never disappointed! They have delicious desserts and a very good brunch. They also have a gluten-free menu. Everything is made fresh. The place itself is bright and open with indoor and patio seating. The location in German Village is close to shops, Schindler Park, and the Columbus Commons.

The raspberry truffle torte was amazing. My daughter said, "who made this? Jesus?" It is clearly in the top five pastries I have ever had. We boxed up some macarons for later. The staff was very friendly and the shop a nice place to meet friends for a late morning or afternoon snack.

Every time I go to Columbus, I go to this gem of a bakery. It's in a historic part of downtown Columbus, and like everything in this area, it is nothing less than exquisite. I've had their chocolate bombe, pain au chocolat, muesli, croissants, shortbread cookies, jams, and other goodies. This trip I indulged in a wild mushroom quiche and... More

Very well done pastries in a charming place. Even the coffee is top notch. A great place to take out of towners who have doubts about Columbus.

The best bakery in German Village. Macaroons are the best in the city. Fresh pastries and good coffee are a great start to the day. Outside tables to watch the world go by. For breakfast there is quiche, croissants and rolls. Plenty of light and fresh options.

This bakery is worth a stop - they're creating not only excellent high-end baked goods, but also works of art! It's always difficult choosing a treat from their display, and I've never been disappointed! Best treats in the city.

I found out about this place from Tripadvisor reviews and they were spot on. I went to the location at the North Market and got the macaroon sampler with one of each flavor, and an eclair. I loved them some much I went back the next day and got more of the ones I really liked. ( Rasberry, coconut, and... More

We love this restaurant! Even when we are not stopping in for a meal we love to pop in for a couple of their amazing macarons (which are gluten free to boot)!

When I'm in the mood for a sweet treat, this is the place to go! The patisseries are beautiful and taste fabulous. I love all the variety of macaroons. The atmosphere is nice, but can get a little noisy on the weekends. It's not cheap, but who wants Little Debbie's after eating one of their perfect pieces of heaven!

I always like stopping at Pistscia Vera for a quick treat and coffee. When it's nice a seat outside is fun for people watching. Service is always great!
