Bierberg’s Pastry Shop

Helen Bierberg Walsh still uses her grandmother’s original recipes from 1913 for her twenty-five varieties of German cookies. Because the family has been in Columbus for over 90 years, ‘Buckeyes’ have been added to the Christmas assortment of candies, cookies, and breads. Open seasonally October-December.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

We create ice creams we fall madly in love with, that we want to bathe in, that make us see million-year-old stars. We devour it out of Mason jars, coffee mugs—whatever we can get our hands on. Handmade American ice cream = Bliss with a big B. Every single thing we put in our ice cream is legit.
