“Open Monday thru Thursday 1 PM - 10 PM, Friday & Saturday 12 - 11 PM, Sunday 1 PM - 10 PM Jeni’s is another Columbus staple, and one of the most recognizable brands to come from the city. Jeni’s pushes the envelope with their flavors, serving up things like churro, cream puff, and goat cheese with red cherries. Their sorbet includes dairy-free options as well, meaning no one has to miss out! ”

“Open Tuesday thru Thursday 11 AM - 10:30 PM, Friday 11 AM - 11:30 PM, Saturday 4 PM - 11:30 PM, Sunday 4 PM - 10:30 PM Rubino’s pizza is probably the favorite pizza restaurant in this area. They are a cash-only restaurant, so be sure to have some cash on hand when you stop in! Their pizzas have crispy, thin crusts with classic Italian ingredients and just the right amount of sauce. If you want to eat like a local, Rubino’s is the place to do it! They’ve been in business for decades for a reason!”

Bakery
“Open Tuesday thru Saturday 7 AM - 5 PM, Sundays 9 AM - 2 PM Cherbourg Bakery is probably the most friendly restaurant in Columbus for people with restrictive diets. Out of principle, they completely avoid using gluten, nuts, and food dyes, making it a great place to grab a bite to eat without having to worry about what might be in it. From savory breads to the classic sweets, like muffins and donuts, their goal is to make their food accessible to everyone. Their classic Petit-Choux are cream puffs that are filled on the spot with your choice of vanilla orchocolate, and they are to die for!”

“Open 10:45 AM - 10 PM daily Piada is another Columbus favorite, with eight locations right here in the city. What Chipotle is to Hispanic food, Piada is to Italian. The menu features wraps (piadas), tossed salads, and pasta bowls, all of which you can customize to your tastes. There’s a real focus on ingredients at piada, so everything tastes fresh and well-prepared.”
