Ah, there’s nothing like a sweltering day when the only source of relieve is a cold treat. Or, if you’re like us, you don’t even need the excuse of extreme temperatures to enjoy a frozen dessert!

Below are 5 trendy desserts you need to put on your Columbus Food Bucket List this summer.

Glazed Churro Bar | Catch the truck!

In early April, a new player stepped onto the Columbus dessert team and they’re not playing any games. Glazed Churro Bar is tooling around the city, satisfying sweet teeth with its gorgeous and downright delicious dessert concoctions. From Fruity Pebble and Cookies & Cream sundaes to savory taco cones, Glazed Churro Bar is likely to be your new food truck obsession.

Cookie Dough Creamery | 7227 N. High St., Worthington

Worthington’s Cookie Dough Creamery doesn’t shy away from real cream in their soft serve ice cream and you can “really taste and feel the difference”, they claim. But, what really sets the dessert shop apart from other shops (and your mom) is that they won’t scold you for eating their un-baked cookie dough! Their six flavors are made with heat-treated flour instead of eggs to produce a safe-to-eat unbaked cookie dough.

Rime Time Curiously Crafted Pops | Catch the wagon!

Rime Time Curiously Crafted Pops knows no barriers. Their popsicle ingredients range from PB&J, to saffron, to avocado, to Mission coffee, to charcoal, all the way to watermelon habanero. And if that isn’t fuel enough to spark your desire for an ice cold pop, just look how pretty they are!

Simply Rolled Ice Cream | 970 N. High St., Columbus

Inspired by the street vendors of Thailand, Simply Rolled offers made-to-order ice cream rolls, which is both fun to watch and delicious to eat. Mix up your order with an ice cream taco! Why use a spoon when you could eat a waffle cone?

Bonifacio | 1577 King Ave., Columbus

Known for their modern spin on Filipino brunch and monthly Kamayan, or family-style dinners, it would be easy to overlook the dessert menu. But, the Ube Ice Cream Sandwich, made from purple sweet potato, stuffed in a deep-fried bun topped with coconut and caramel is the street food favorite you didn’t know you were missing. Check out their other Ube ice cream creations, too!

Milestone 229 overcomes 2020 challenges, to reopen soon

Every industry has taken a hit this year. It’s cliche to generalize it. With that being said, some businesses have taken more damage than others.

Milestone 229, located on the river’s Scioto Mile, was forced to closed in March along with all the other restaurants across Ohio, as the restaurant industry took a hit despite the uptick in carryout orders.

Just as things seemed to be coming back to normal, as restaurants and bars were allowed to reopen, the protests demanding change during the Black Lives Matter movement brought an unexpected rioting component that had devastating effects for Milestone 229.

The downtown, upscale eatery with the playful fountain for kids and adults alike, took an extra hit when rioting, looting, and vandalism broke down the windows of the restaurant on Thursday, May 29. Milestone 229 was supposed to reopen the upcoming Monday.

Griggs has tried his best to stay positive through it all, finding some valuable and much-needed help along the way.

“A good friend of the restaurant, Cathy King, executive vice president of Wasserstrom, started a GoFundMe page for Milestone 229. We are using that money to help relaunch the restaurant.  We also had many friends and family come down the morning after the riots to help clean up the broken glass.”

Doug Griggs, co-owner of Milestone 229


Now, recovering once again, Milestone 229 is set to open back up on Wednesday, July 8. The fine-dining establishment will offer patio and dining room seating, as well as a new curbside pickup. Co-owner Doug Griggs said in an email that the restaurant was able to keep the majority of its patio seating and over half of its dining room seating. 

Milestone 229 has a new venue revamped for the summer as well. You can view it here.
