Pistachio is now Pistacia Vera in German Village
541 South Third St.
Pistachio bakery ceased to exist in the Short North in mid-August so it could be reborn as Pistacia Vera in German Village.
The new location has a lot of history to it, the original building has been in place since the 1880’s. The new space has some great design features as well as natural lighting. The staff are a pleasure to interact with. Pistachia Vera is well placed for a perfect weekend morning in German Village, it is located within easy walking distance of the Book Loft and Katzinger’s Deli.
All of the goodies remain – pastries, cookies, confections, truffles, tarts, tortes and more. My favorite are the macarons – in particular pistachio and pecan. These half dollar sized cookies offer perfection for $1
I also learned something on my latest trip. Since Pistacia uses the finest ingredients and no preservatives – they advise that all desserts be consumed within three days of purchase. In my case, I am struggling not to eat all of them within three minutes.
Pistacia Vera is the name for the tree that bears pistachio nuts.
