Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Eban’s Bakehouse Cookies

Eban’s Bakehouse has a major presence in the bread scene generally, and in the local and gluten-free scenes specifically. It’s known for its bready-breads in a variety of flavors that include oat, cinnamon-raisin, and a seeded bread that hearkens back to HealthNut bread before it went bigtime and ditched half its heavy, nutty goodness.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Turkish Delight at Citadel Cafe

If you read classics as a kiddo, you’re probably familiar with at least the opener of CS Lewis’ Narnia series. The first book is where you learned about Turkish Delight: a treat so delicious that it inspires one character to rat-out his own siblings to the evil empire.  Every once in a while, you see Turkish […]

Shave ice, on the other hand, is a reference to a particular variant of shaved ice: Hawaiian style. Shave ice is also thinner. It’s not crunchy. It’s […]

The debut of Cleveland Avenue’s Saraga market brings more than a new (international) grocery option to the community. Just like at the Morse Road location, the new Saraga comes with its own little food court on the side.

Treat to Try: Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery

About five years ago, Columbus was hit hard by the cupcake bus. It seemed like there was a spot on every corner, peddling artisan cupcakes.   All good things must come to an end, and many cupcake joints faded into oblivion, joining a legion of other bygone trends like fro-yo.
