These bakeries are kid-tested and approved! If you’re looking for a new place to get your sweet fix, give one of these local bakeries a try! You won’t be disappointed!
1. The Original Goodie Shop, Upper Arlington
Cookies, cakes, donuts, you name it! It’s all here! Easy parking, and really close to the Upper Arlington Library if you’re looking for a fun outing! We had cut out cookies and an amazing cinnamon stick (pictured below). I have it on good authority that the chocolate donuts are worthy of a fork and knife. #donutgoals
2116 Tremont Center, Upper Arlington, OH 43221
2. Laughlin’s Bakery, Short North
European Pastries in the cutest little shop in the Short North – one of my favorite shops in the area! There are cookies, breads, scones, and gluten free options, too! Head to Rocket Fizz, Big Fun or Italian Village Park for more fun!
15 E. 2nd Ave, Columbus OH 43201
3. Kittie’s, Bexley
This is the cookie that started my salted-chocolate chip obsession. Get it! You will NOT be disappointed. The boys and I shared this cookie – next time I’m going back for the whole thing! Plus, this location of Kittie’s is attached to Gramercy Books – a newly opened, independent bookstore! What a great combo!

4. Sassafras Bakery, Worthington
Milk and Cookie Happy Hour (W-F, 3:00-5:00 PM) at Sassafrass Bakery means a free glass of milk or cup of coffee with each cookie purchased. They make this sound like it’s for the kids . . . but it’s really just an excuse for the adults to eat more cookies! 😉 Ummm…I also got the salted-chocolate chip cookie here, too. It was the container with the least amount of cookies in it, so that was my first clue it should be my choice! I chose wisely! (Oh yeah, the kids loved it, too!)
657 High St., Worthington, OH 43085
5. Dough Mama, Clintonville
Dough Mama is the home of my 3rd salted-chocolate chip cookie. Once you go salted, you never go back! This bakery has a lot of space for kids and is really close to Cover to Cover Books for Young Readers! A great combo you can read about here!
3335 N. High St. Columbus, OH 43214
