North Market
North Market is home to dozens of unique, independent merchants, farmers, and makers. Steph and I had many dates here, and still visit it almost every's a real Columbus treasure!
Fox in the Snow
Fox in the Snow Cafe is a bakery, coffee shop serving up rustic-style baked goods and hand-poured drinks. The pastries and food are OUT OF THIS WORLD (cinnamon roll, egg sandwich) and the vibe is very hip. 
Jeni's Ice Creams
Columbus, OH is where Jeni began making the ice creams that The New York Times called “worth the drive to Ohio” and Time magazine called “the best in America.” Lots of unusual, but delicious flavors, and the staff lets you try as many as you want!
