On Mondays, Christian Corner Cafe serves pulled pork and cole slaw. Thursdays, it's meatloaf with mashed potatoes. And on Sundays, the Christian-oriented eatery closes up shop. But any other day of the week, customers can pop into the cozy café for sandwiches, coffee, a full breakfast menu, and baked goods including cakes and muffins. Though all are welcome, this food and drink is served in a Christian-oriented environment, with Bibles and scripture on every table. Christian Corner Cafe is also available to cater.
At Rule 3, players hurl orbs down 14 hardwood lanes before refueling with food and arcade entertainment. During bowling bouts, vivid flat-screen monitors keep competitors honest and prevent scores from parading as Scrabble letters. Between sets, players can roll more compact spheres with a choice of Balley pool tables ($1.25/game) or mini-bowling games ($1–$2/game). The full menu fills hearty appetites with entrees of Yankee pot roast ($10) and homemade mac ‘n’ cheese ($8) and highlights six different kinds of fries that diners can choose to load 15 different ways, including Buffalo style, Ragin’ Cajun, and Jamaican jerk.
Indulge yourself or others with gourmet brownie options such as this season's caramel apple fudge or peanut butter caramel fudge ($3.25 each), each decidedly more delectable than equally seasonal dried-leaf granola squares. New breakfast additions include cinnamon streusel and cappuccino pecan ($3.25 each), and standbys such as chocolate fudge and fudgy cookie ($3.25 each) give fans of the classics something to chew about.
A sweet tooth is worth 12 bicuspids on the tooth-fairy black market. Rediscover your sweet spark with today's deal: for $5, you get $12 worth of dessert at Ganache Dessert Kitchen. This sugarplum sanctuary is located about 8 miles outside of downtown Columbus in Gahanna. You can purchase up to two Groupons, but they must be used in separate visits, just like those fighting fish that you were supposed to keep in separate bowls. Use your first to get the ball rolling and the second to silence the withdrawal created from the first.
Every morning, Rita's Italian Ice's dessert-makers show up to work and start smashing fruit to bits. They extract the juices, natural sugars, and sweet flesh of each to infuse into their freshly-made italian ices. The ices pair well with custards and creams for mixed treats, or serve as refreshingly cool treats on their own. The staff even take small groups on behind-the-scenes tours of their kitchens, teaching the secrets to freezing mango juice into a silky-smooth texture or milking a banana.
The top-brass twisters at Auntie Anne's, one of the world's largest handrolled, soft-pretzel franchises, create enough twirly treats every year to wrap the Earth in deliciously salted dough three times over. Pretzel professionals prepare a wide array of sweet-and-salty snacks, spiraling them into ornate knots with the delicacy of a grandmotherly sailor and baking them to golden brown in full view of customers.
