The family behind Crumbz Cakery always loved baking together. With the creation of Crumbz Cakery, they now share their tasty family recipes with outsiders: gooey fudge brownies, cinnamon crunch muffins, and homemade buttercream frosting, to name a few. They also make specialty cakes, perfect for a family birthday, baby shower, or when you realize the baby can't make his own cakes yet. Cakes come in a range of flavors, from yellow and white to red velvet and german chocolate. All can be topped with signature icings, such as chocolate buttercream or coconut pecan.
Husband-and-wife team Rosario and Taura Auddino, founded Auddinos Bakery & Cafe in 2012, pouring their love of baked goods and a family tradition of Italian cooking into their treats. In the morning, the scent of crispy artisanal loaves and soft sandwich bread wafts out onto the street. The pastry case contains rows of sweet iced pastries including glazed and cake donuts, muffins, and cannolis, while the freezer displays rows of tempting gelato flavors. The bakery also tackles savory meals with breakfast and lunch sandwiches including meatball subs, egg and ham croissants, and roma turkey sandwiches, along with 7-, 10-, and 14-inch pizzas baked onsite with a dozen toppings to choose from, or raw pizza dough available for making your own creation at home.
Whit's Frozen Custard whips up rich, velvety frozen concoctions using some of the finest cream, eggs, and toppings on the market. Prepared each and every morning with a virtually heir-less blend of fresh ingredients, Whit's custard-crafters top cake cones ($2.25/1 scoop, $3.25/2 scoops) and hand-dipped waffle cones ($3.25/1 scoop, $4.25/2 scoops) with vanilla and chocolate custards, as well as a special weekly flavor that keeps the bowties of salivating snowmen spinning. Whit's custom Whitsers ($3.50–$4.50) swirl house vanilla custard with a staggering array of syrups, candies, fruit, and nuts (one included, $.50 for each additional topping). Daring visitors can indulge in a crafted creation such as the Buckeye Madness ($3.50/small, $4.25/regular), which blends Reese's cups, chocolate syrup, and peanut butter for a taste-bud bull’s-eye.
As a friendly, family-owned neighborhood bakery, The Original Goodie Shop has been whipping up delectable pastries and tasty take-home fare since 1958. Today, it remains one of the few full-line bakeries in Columbus and the only place that still makes cakes for luring unicorns. Each “Bakery’s Best” assortment contains The Original Goodie Shop’s famous cinnamon sticks, which are doused in cinnamon and butterscotch, just like all the sticky doorknobs in Grandma’s house. Chicken pot pies provide a savory counterbalance to the collection of sweet concoctions, making for a hearty meal during dinner, breakfast, or the last few miles of a marathon. Additionally, visitors will be able to peruse a wide selection of the bakery’s tasty treats, including Danish pastries, salt rising bread, wedding cakes, and piñatas filled with éclair custard.
