Dough Mama Opens Second Location
Dough Mama number two will make its debut in the Brewery District this Saturday, August 29.
Taking over the former home of Kolache Republic at 730 S. High St., Dough Mama will serve up a breakfast and lunch menu similar to its Clintonville spot, along with a brand new dinner menu.
In the all-important pastry department, Owner Perrie Wilkof says there will be some flavor variations between the two spots, giving diners options to explore both locations. For example, the Buckeye Pie and Orange Ricotta Cakes will be on the Brewery District menu, while Clintonville is currently serving up the Banana Dream Pie and Banana Bread.
The dinner menu ventures into comfort food territory. There are Veggie Pancakes and a Kale Quesadilla, along with Chicken and Biscuit (biscuit base with a pot pie filling) and a family-recipe inspired Tuna Noodle Casserole. There’s also a rotating, seasonal veggie pot pie and meat pot pie that will change every few months – or longer, based on popularity.
Another new addition for Dough Mama is an espresso machine. The restaurant will be slinging lattes that could double as dessert with flavors like Cereal Milk, Pie Spice and Salted Mocha.
Dough Mama is joining a bustling stretch of South High Street that has seen an influx of local businesses. From Antiques on High and Ambrose & Eve, to Lawbird and The Daily Growler, which now houses Kolache Republic, Wilkof is excited to be surrounded by other local business owners, many of whom she calls friends.
“I’ve always had my eye on this spot. It’s such a cute little spot and I love German Village,” Wilkof adds. “I thought it would be a nice complement to the area.”
She also believes Dough Mama and another block newcomer, Emmett’s Cafe, which will serve up coffee and a more health-focused menu, will be great complements to each other.
When Dough Mama opens on Saturday, it will be for takeout, delivery or outdoor dining. The eatery will provide 12 outdoor seats. Delivery will be handled through ChowNow, with Postmates to follow in a few weeks. Or, diners can also order on the website, call-in or walk-in.
Dough Mama will be open from Wednesday to Sunday. Wilkhof says due to the coronavirus, they are still finalizing hours, but will be open for breakfast and lunch on Wednesday and Thursday from 8 or 9 a.m. and close around 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday will include dinner hours, with the restaurant open from 8 or 9 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Dough Mama will celebrate its grand opening at 730 S. High St. on Saturday, August 29 from 9 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit dough-mama.com.
