Columbus has a lot of options when it comes to local bakeries and their ability to make mouth-melting cookies. Check out the list below of Columbus bakeries so you can celebrate the day properly.

Six generations of bakers. Over 100 years old. Resch’s Bakery is iconic. I mean, if you can sustain a family-owned business for over a century, you’re doing something right. The bakery moved to its current location on E. Livingston in the 1960s, and that’s where it’s been ever since. Stop in for one of their peanut butter cookies and a dose of Columbus pastry history.
