The Cheesecake Girl is staying put in Italian Village food hall

The Cheesecake Girl is remaining at Budd Dairy Food Hall.

For a long while, at least.

Over the weekend, the popular Columbus confectioner–who was voted to have the best dessert in the city in our 2022 ColumBEST poll–announced that it will be staying in Budd Dairy Food Hall throughout the end of the year.

The Cheesecake Girl began its second stint in Sugar, Budd Dairy’s rotating dessert kitchen, on March 29. As the food hall’s rotating kitchen stints typically last only a handful of months, The Cheesecake Girl was likely to leave soon had its stay not been extended. The eatery previously operated in Budd Dairy between April and September of last year.


Budd Dairy Food Hall is located at 1086N. 4th St. in Italian Village.

“We are excited to stay on this team of amazing chef partners and have our desserts in Italian Village,” a statement posted to The Cheesecake Girl’s Instagram account reads.

Owner Samantha Strange started The Cheesecake Girl as a home bakery in 2015, before opening in Hilliard’s Center Street Market in 2020, and Dublin–as a stand-alone storefront–last fall.
