I recently hosted a baby shower and offered the macarons on the dessert table. They were delicious! I received many compliments on them.

Dark coffee, but not too acidic. Try the chocolate bomb it is out of this world with four types of chocolate. Its like BEING IN Paris with neat clean atmosphere and 30 different items to view in display case. Even the help is all firmly pressed and friendly

I've been coming to Pistacia Vera for years just to get the variety of macaroons which are ALL so tasty, but the last few times I've been I've decided to branch out and try some other things. EVERYTHING is perfection. All natural ingredients and flawless presentation. I just wish there were more locations!

When friends ask where we should meet for lunch I like to suggest Pistacia Vera. Their quiche is the best. While there are tons of yummy desserts to choose from I most always get the shortbread. There is just enough flour and sugar to hold the butter together. I do buy their beautiful tortes and tarts to take when I... More

Pistacia vera serves the highest quality desserts, reminiscent of some patisseries in Paris. While the trademark macarons are wonderful, the specialty cakes and tarts can not be missed. The savory and sweet croissants are a great way to start the morning. The bakery is small but there is adequate seating inside and out ( especially on a nice spring or... More

There are now two locations, both in great spots if you're new to or visiting Columbus. Best macarons on the planet. Wonderful coffee created by a local roaster. The array of artisanal and French pastries will spin your head. Also a great place for breakfast or brunch - the quiche is wonderful, the toasted croissant with the house made jams... More

This is a wonderful unique bakery with beautiful and more importantly delicious baked goods and brunch. I especially love the almond cookies and the dark chocolate cookies. Plus they have the BEST macarons in town!

I think Bon Appetite voted this bakery as the best in USA. What a coup for Columbus and Ohio to have such a stellar French bakery here. Great pastries, great coffee in a lively location in German Village, and also now in the North Market. Palmiers! Financiers! Tartes aux fruits! Pate de fruits! Croissants! Go crazy!

Sometimes in fancy bakeries the things in the case look better then they taste. Not here! Everything looks outstanding and they always seem to match expectations. Just outstanding and the French macaroons are heavenly.
