Everything on the menu at Kittie’s Cakes is fantastic, but I’m a huge fan of their cinammon roll. In addition to the yummy treats on the menu, Kittie’s Cakes in Bexley happens to be attached to one of my favorite bookstores, Gramercy Books. So buy a book, get a coffee, and treat yourself to something (once again, the cinnamon roll is always a great choice).

Fox in the Snow Cafe
Fox in the Snow Cafe doesn’t just have mouthwatering treats. They’ve got vibes. I know that sounds like a weird thing to get excited about, but I genuinely think that Fox in the Snow is the best cafe experience you’ll find in Columbus. I can’t possibly pick just one thing on the menu to suggest, so try not to be totally overwhelmed by the glorious display of pastries when you walk in.

Auddino’s Italian Bakery
Auddino’s Italian Bakery is possibly one of the most perfect places that have ever existed. It doesn’t matter if you’re coming in for an incredible loaf of bread or a sweet treat like a cronut or cannoli, you will leave feeling satisfied.

Tucked away in a strip mall on the city’s northwest side, Belle’s Bread is an absolute treat. With the perfect blend of Japanese flavors and French baking techniques, the menu at Belle’s is full of unique pastries. Everything there will probably be tempting, but make sure you don’t leave without a strawberry buttercream bear. They’re both adorable and delicious.

Resch’s Bakery has been an east side institution for nearly 100 years, and for good reason. From custom cakes to donuts to danishes, Resch’s has perfected the art of baking. It’s easy to fall in love with everything on the menu, but don’t skip over the seasonal options. Especially when that seasonal option is a pumpkin donut.
