Our Favorite Restaurants
There are so many wonderful restaurants in Columbus it’s hard to go wrong. These are the places close by our Airbnb that we personally frequent and love.
Northstar is an incredibly quality and consistent cafe. It’s our go-to, favorite restaurant. The Northstar burger is an amazing veggie burger that even non vegetarians will appreciate. And the Niman Ranch Cheeseburger is our favorite beef burger. The sweet potato fries are an awesome side! Ask for a couple sides of cayenne aioli as a dip for your sweet potato fries. And the fresh ginger-ale is unreal! We also love the Buddha Bowl, the Fiore Pizza with prosciutto, the Chicken Avocado Sandwich, and the Fish Sandwich. Northstar is also one of the best breakfast spots in the city! We prefer the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and the Big Burrito. You honestly can’t go wrong. In nice weather Northstar is an enjoyable walk.

Marcellas is an always bustling restaurant that is classic Italian with a dynamic bar and a vibrant menu. They carry a large selection of Italian wines, meats and cheeses and an awesome selection of pizzas, pastas and signature dishes. All of the other Cameron Mitchell restaurants in the city are also wonderful (Martini, The Guild House, The Pearl, Del Mar SoCal Kitchen).

Tasi is open for breakfast and is a great value. The french toast with caramelized bananas is delicious and they have the best biscuits and gravy we’ve had. If you’re really hungry order the kid-sized french toast and a half portion of the biscuits and gravy and you can try both for a surprisingly low price.

Katalina’s is a small cafe just a short walk around the corner that serves local foods with a Latin flair for breakfast and lunch. They change their menu often but the pancake balls, the various tacos, and the chicken sandwich are some of our favorites. Get there early as the line to get in forms early!

Alqueria is a relatively new restaurant located in the University District and we absolutely love it. They offer refined rustic dining with an ever changing menu and fantastic specials. They also have a full bar with a great wine list and craft beer selection.

Drinks and Treats
This is our favorite coffee shop! All of their beverages are high end and consistent. But what really sets Fox in the Snow apart is the pastries. The Egg Sandwich is out of this world! The filled donut and the cinnamon roll are also killer. Whatever pastry you get will be one of the best versions of said pastry you’ve ever had. You can also watch the pastry chefs at work behind a glass wall.

Stauff’s in Grandview is a favorite local coffee shop and is about a 10 minute drive from our Airbnb. It’s more of an old school coffee experience. The place smells amazing right when you walk in as they have dozens of barrels of coffee beans. We really enjoy their Highlander Grogg beans.

The Bottle Shop is located two doors down from Alqueria and is a must visit if you are looking for one of the best classic cocktails in Columbus. They also have a killer craft draft selection (check out our brewery Sixth Sense Brewing Murk Juice on draft) as well as packaged beer and wine to-go. Say hello to the owner Barb…she is awesome!!!!

Things To Do
Our Airbnb is in Victorian Village, which is one of the historic neighborhoods in the Short North. We love strolling around Victorian Village and checking out all of the old homes, but the heart of the Short North is along the High St corridor starting at 5th ave and moving south until you get to the Columbus Convention Center. There are so many places to eat and shop in the Short North, particularly along that High St corridor. You can make a day of exploring this neighborhood and be sure to check out Goodale Park if the weather is nice.

Starting around 9th Ave and High St and moving north for a few blocks is South Campus Gateway. There are plenty of places to eat, some shopping, and a movie theatre at The Gateway. If you venture further north into campus during the morning hours our favorite pit-spot is The Little Donut Shop on High Street.

COSI is an enormously popular attraction that offers all sorts of hands-on exhibits, from conducting your own water experiments to creating a newscast to watching yourself age. This place is so fun for kids (and adults) of all ages and you will not even come close to exploring the whole place in one visit.

The downtown branch of the Columbus library is less than 10 minutes away and a pretty cool spot with a great kids area, coffee shop, and lots of room to explore. We love coming there and if it’s warm outside be sure and stop by the Topiary Gardens nearby.

The Columbus Zoo is nationally renowned and features more than 7,000 animals from around the world in a variety of habitats. The zoo is about 30 minutes from our Airbnb and is probably an all day affair by the time you get there, park, and get through the gates. It is truly a world class experience, so it’s worth considering if you have a free day to spend in Columbus. Zoombezi Bay is the water park right next to the zoo, and is a ton of fun if you like that sort of thing!!

Whetstone’s Park of Roses is in the Clintonville neighborhood and is about a 10 minute drive from our Airbnb. The roses will not disappoint in season. Clintonville is also a wonderful neighborhood to explore along High St, but you probably want to start your walk around the intersection of North Broadway and High St which is a little south of the Park of Roses. Walking south from North Broadway you’ll find some great antique shops.
