All Dessert Food Tour

Why We Love This

  • Dessert, Art and History
  • Great date or gift idea
  • An amazingly sweet way to spend a Saturday afternoon

The All Dessert Tour explores the Short North’s embarrassment of sweet treat riches on foot, with strolling interludes between stops that take in the neighborhood’s public art. Stops include delectable Italian pastries at Quinci Emporium, a sampling of The Pearl’s house-made signature pies, fair trade chocolate at Global Gifts, and much more! A cocktail accompaniment is included, and can be served alcohol-free for those who would prefer it (or anyone under 21!). Though - and make no mistake about it - the focus is dessert, we’ll also explore some of the Short North’s newest and most exciting public art, including the virtual reality-enabled 10 story murals adorning the sides of the Graduate Hotel. The All Dessert Food Tour starts at 2:30pm on Saturdays and will last approximately 2 1/2 hours. The cost is $58.

Details

Join us on this van-based tour featuring some of the best desserts in Columbus. This tour first visits new specialty bakery Bake Me Happy, where we'll not only get to sample their sumptuous sweets but also get a behind-the-scenes look into their impressive production pastry kitchen. Then, it's chocolate fit for a queen at Madame Delluc, at what is only the second US location for this prestigious Belgian chocolatier. Our next stop is Pattycake Bakery in Clintonville to learn about their whoopie pies, sticky buns and cookies. Of course, no dessert tour of Columbus would be complete without Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, so we will visit their Clintonville location to try some of their newest seasonal flavors. Finally, we’ll finish our food tour with a fabulous dessert cocktail created by mixologist extraordinaire Cris Dehlavi at M Restaurant (there will be a non-alcoholic drink option available for those under 21 or who do not wish to consume alcohol).
