Treat to Try: Piece of Cake

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Piece of Cake

Piece of Cake is nothing new. It’s been a sweet staple in the Short North for years. The bakery has locked down an unassuming corner spot where you can’t really see its impressive wares from the street.

It’s embarrassing that it’s taken so long to try out HTH Market in Linworth. The little market’s gotten lots of recommendations, and it’s devoted to a good cause (Hope Thru Housing). What it took to finally put the car in park was complete desperation: it’s hard to find a good peach on a weekday. The […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Das KaffeeHaus von Frau Burkhart

Honestly, who doesn’t want to stop at Das KaffeeHaus von Frau Burkhart? It takes forever to pronounce all the words, but they are so very satisfying to say; even more so with a faux German accent. The KaffeeHaus is a little corner coffee cafe that set up shop inside of Zauber brewing. The coffee shop […]
