Spend Saturday’s Exploring

Spending Saturday’s exploring and brunching with friends has started becoming one of my favorite things to do. I think a lot has to do with the fact that I am a mom so any time I get a few hours to myself it would be nice no matter what I am doing! I just really enjoy coffee, food, and conversation!

Here is some really wonderful places you have to check out next time you are in Columbus, Ohio

We randomly decided to stop at Ethyl and Tank and I am so glad we did because this place set up is awesome, it’s a chill atmosphere with really great food! I decided to get a B.L.A.T with an egg on top it was delicious the avocado and egg on it probably made the sandwich even better. I also got a side salad basically because the dressing is called sweet and sassy and I’m sassy like that!

I found my favorite coffee shop this weekend, Bottomsup Coffee Co-Op

1. It’s so unique I mean look at this wall.

2. They have really great coffee, and unsweetened Matcha they know whats up

3. They decorate with succulents, love those little plants

4. They do a lot of things for a good cause: read this below

Next we found Laughlin’s Bakery this place will draw you in, especially when you step into the fresh smell of baked pastries. My friend Chelsea got this deliciousness here

We went to Oats and Barley Market which if I must add, is adorable but it’s also connected to Simply Rolled we tried to go the healthier route and get Vegan Vanilla + Coconut + Lavender Honey + Green Tea Sticks and it was okay if you are going to go here though I suggest just splurging on the good stuff!

I also found Hope Hummus, seriously if you are a hummus lover like me this is where it’s at I’ve found it here, and I have found it at Fresh Thyme so far! Here is their website to see the other flavors



The best kind of days are spent exploring and spending time with friends 🙂

    I hope you do more posts about your explorations! Love the good cause of the restaurant too! 🙂 If you’re ever in German village you should check out Pistachia Vera! It’s a pretty good french cafe/bakery! 🙂 Try their eclairs! 🙂

      Oh my gosh that is so funny that you mentioned that the weekend before I did go to PIstacia Vera and I did get an eclair! It’s so adorable in there and they also have really good tea 🙂

    I love exploring in my own city, especially brunch and pastry places. I gotta try that matcha stuff. I see everyone raving about it, but I’ve never tried it.
