Delicious French Style and Modern Café in the heart of German Village, Columbus, Ohio. Can't wait to get back to enjoy another pastry. The best croissant this side of the Atlantic!

The waiter at Lindey's told us about this place and said they had a world class pastry chef. He wasn't lying. We walked from Lindey's and ordered $40 worth of pastry's between 4 of us. We ate every last bite. Everything was well made and the macaron's were one of the best I have ever tasted, light and flavorful. The... More

This is a must stop for visitors. The founders trained at Laduree, Paris. ---- Croissants, Macaroons,etc. Affluent area neighbors stop regularly for coffee & croissant. (dangerous temptation) For the rest of us it is the beginning of any special day. Their limited breakfast offerings -- with hot tea or European quality coffee are the perfect complement to the excellent pastry... More

I love PistachioVera and so does everyone else at work. Beautiful pastries. You have to try the chocolate bomb! Best macaroons ever!

This is the cutest little bakery I've ever been to. They've never made a macaroon I didn't like. The chocolate bread is also great. I love to eat it with mint chocolate chip ice cream :)

Whether your looking for a last minute special gift -like a box of colored macaroons- or just meeting a friend this bakery will have something to satisfy your sweet tooth and help you forget your to do list. I love the iced mocha and pistachio macaroons. They do have heartier things like croissants if your aiming to satiate. Right in... More

I love their pistachio chocolate chip cookies. Their presentation is sure to impress at dinner parties. Most people seem to get the macaroons, but I don't love them.

I do not have a sweet tooth. I was definitely born with a salty tooth. I'm so picky. So, my family and I were visiting Columbus, and I did a search on here for places to eat. This was number one, and the pictures alone made my mouth water. We visited the location in German Village, and later found-out that... More

This is a must visit pastry store that consistently holds its own with the best from Paris. Great croissants - especially the almond - and good cakes.

Love this place! The treats are very, very tasty. The presentation is very cool and the building itself has been perfectly restored and repurposed for this high end pastry / coffee shop. Add in a help and cheery staff and you have a great recipe (no pun intended) for a great little caloric escape.

Thank TDNeumann
