The Best Bread In Columbus

Does delicious, doughy, fluffy bread even need an introduction?

Probably not, but I like to talk and I like talking about bread, so here it goes. Bread and the human race go back a long time. Like, 14,000+ years long. Without bread and beer, the world as we know it would be a very, very different place.

So in celebration of one of the greatest human innovations of all time, let’s talk about the best bread in Columbus.

About: If you’ve never had Shokupan from Belle’s Bread, are you even living? This Japanese delight is most similar to white loaf bread, but please don’t let that description fool you. It’s fluffy and perfect in every way. It would be criminal not to mention Belle’s perfectly made An Pan, a sweet roll with filling. Belle’s likes to mix it up when it comes to fillings and these adorable bears have a strawberry filling.

Auddino’s Italian Bakery

via Facebook

About: When is the last time you had a pastry so good that it brought you to tears? If you head to Auddino’s at your earliest convenience and order one, you can answer that question with a firm “right effing now”. I love croissants, and I love donuts, so why on earth did I ever think I wouldn’t fully be on board with a doughsant? (alternatively known as a “cronut”) It’s a mystery. Additionally, this Italian bakery has all kinds of other yummy pastries and bread, so no matter what you like, it’s worth a visit.
Location: Auddino’s Italian Bakery is located at 1490 Clara St, near the fairgrounds.
