Best Places to go in Columbus, OhioA list of top ten things to see during a visit to Columbus, Ohio-- mostly food-related, because I explore with my stomach!
You can't go wrong by just walking around German Village and/or the Short North.
The Top Ten
Everyone knows Jeni's is the best ice cream in the country. It's just plain not up for debate. If you miss this while you are here, I just don't know what to do with you. My personal favorite: Askinosie Dark Chocolate. Sample everything, you won't regret it.
Farm-to-table, local goodness tucked away in German Village. This gets very busy for brunch, so come early before the hipsters wake up. That being said, I have waited 45 minutes or more for a table and still felt great about my life decisions. That's how good the food is.
Homage is the best spot for quirky t-shirts, koozies, hoodies, and more. Plus they have a cooler full of FREE coke in glass bottles! This is the perfect spot to pick up an Ohio souvenir or two, and their t-shirts are so soft I'm spoiled for anything else ever.
This place is my mecca. Buy delicious prepared food from one of the vendors, pick up some bulk spices, buy some wine, or visit the butcher. Be sure to make a lap before you pick what to eat or you will end up with serious FOMO! Bonus: Jeni's satellite location. Double bonus: Two blocks from my apartment.
The most adorable bakery in German Village. Grab a cupcake and a bottle of cold-brewed coffee, and if they have it don't miss out on the "brittle." Just trust me on this, it's life-altering.
The most perfect Jewish deli with sandwiches the size of your face. Everything is delicious. And they have free pickles.
Harvest is the best artisan pizza in Columbus. If the weather's nice, sit on the patio at a communal table, order one of Curio's epic cocktails, and people-watch. Pro-tip: Always put the fried egg on top. Always.

32 rooms of books. 'enough said. It may sound like a snoozer, but don't miss it it's really cool stuff (and in such a cute neighborhood - this is where I fell in love with Columbus).
Vintage pre-prohibition cocktails in the Short North. The drinks are a little pricey but I'm obsessed with this place.
