Caf Corner: A favorite Columbus secret
January 13, 2009 by Kelly
Once in a while you find a place that just feels right. The food is always delicious, the service friendly and the atmosphere inviting. When you find one of these places you feel like it’s your little secret.
Well, I’m going to let you in on one of my favorite dining "secrets" in Columbus…Café Corner .
Café Corner is a small, unassuming spot in Victorian Village , just west of the heart of the Short North . It is reminiscent of sidewalk cafes in Europe, where people seem to be perpetually happy and relaxed.
Over the past few months, my boyfriend and I have become Café Corner junkies. With generous portions, a diverse menu, and unique ingredients like avocado, goat cheese and truffle oil, what’s not to love?
While I have yet to try something I did not like, my personal favorite is the Tomato & Mozzarella sandwich. This is any bruschetta lover’s dream: thick crusty bread, perfectly seasoned tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and homemade pesto. Looking for something a little heartier? My boyfriend is a fan of the Puebla BLT for the extra kick in the spicy espresso chili sauce, and the Turkey & Goat Cheese wrap for the raspberry vinaigrette’s perfect combination of sweet and salty.
Before you try Café Corner for yourself, let me warn you about a phenomenon known as food envy . Food envy occurs when you find yourself spending so much time staring at your dining partner’s meal that it is difficult to enjoy your own. Since everything on Café Corner’s menu looks incredibly delicious, this can be a common occurrence. My solution – order two meals, share, and love them both.
