I saw this little shop and I thought the cakes they had looked amazing not to mention the different flavors they had. It had been years since I had a birthday cake with the candles and my name so I thought "Why not buy one here?" The cake was really good. Dark chocolate and Raspberry filling with a chocolate truffle icing what isn't there to love? When I ordered she let me have a few minutes to decide and answered all of my questions. I really didn't know what I wanted so I said "you have control" and she asked what I liked. I told her my favorite color was pink, I love hearts (Love is my middle name), and I was a huge fan of I Dream of Jeannie. The problems that I had was for the price it was very small ($15 for a 6-8") because I know I could go to Kroger and that size for at least half the price. And when I picked it up the design of the cake looked like something that I could do. There were little pink hearts around it and that was it. I was happy that they spelled my name right (it was something that I stressed), but I thought "look at all these amazing designs why couldn't they do this?". I haven't been back since but the cake was really good and I am willing to give them another try with a more specific idea in mind to see if they can execute it.
Delectable Desserts! The Cherbourg Bakery in Bexley advertises "gluten and nut free goodness" and "local ingredients." Somewhat skeptically, I thought, "Hmmmm... gluten and nut free. I'm not so sure," but when my wife and I tried four of their products, we were delightfully surprised. All were delicious! The bakery claims the double-lemon bars, lightly dusted with powdered sugar ($2.50) are their most popular item and I can see why. They are bursting with fresh lemon flavor. The seasonal pumpkin chocolate chip bars ($2.50) are also a special treat, especially for my fellow chocaholics. The madeline is a butter cookie baked in a special mold. The savory egg strata ($3.75) makes a filling breakfast treat. We loved ours, made with carameled onion, chevre, basil and sun-dried tomatoes, and I understand ingredients vary from day to day. The Cherbourg Bakery has a few outdoor tables. I strongly suggest you at least stop in to try the samples at the counter. I predict you'll leave with goodies in hand. Michael Armstrong Bexley, Ohio
Yes, Resch's in my opinion is the best quality bakery here in Columbus, OH. They have been around for years. I don't want to reveal my age range; but I can remember Resch's Bakery as a teenager at the intersection of E. Livingston Ave. and Champion Ave. I really missed it once it changed locations. I would stop by after school and get the warm melt in your mouth glazed doughnuts and their chocolately moist brownies. Resch's Bakery is known for it's superb baked goods and still continues to serve it's dedicated and loyal customers, Don't talk about Resch's Bakery, I am still one of their loyal and dedicated customers and always will be. For the person who talked about Resch's Bakery and their "cash only" policy; stay on your uppity side of town and if you visit our side of town again- bring cash!!!
