Columbus bakery behind bagel bombs, baked goods announces opening date of first-ever storefront

Jack McLaughlin

In less than a month, Bite This by Annie’s first brick and mortar storefront will be open to the public.

The local chef—known for her bagel bombs, black lemonade and plenty of indulgent dessert options—will hold the grand opening of her first-ever brick and mortar space on July 13.

Reflecting owner Annie Dickson’s Halloween-inspired aesthetic, the new spot will feature unique gothic manor vibes with plenty of black. The space was renovated by ST Designs, a custom remodeling company based in Columbus.


The new bakery is located at 3009 N. High St. in Clintonville, taking over the former home of Tudie’s Cookies & Sweets.

“I think from probably six months into this whirlwind adventure, having my own space was the dream. To think that a little over two years in I’m about to open the doors is absolutely insane to me,” she said. “I’m so excited to have this space for my team to thrive, but also to see all my favorite market-goers on a much more regular basis.”

The concept, which began in the Clintonville Farmers Market, grew tremendously over the past year. And while Dickson has moved from market stall to a short stint in Budd Dairy Food Hall’s rotating space to her own location, she hasn’t let the notoriety get to her head.

 “I don’t think Bite This was really ever just about the baked goods for me. It was about being real, and sharing about the hard sh*t along the way,” she said. “Bite This is a space people know they can come to and be accepted, and treated with kindness no matter what. Whether that is for a brownie or just a good hug. I’m really proud of that, and I can’t wait to share it with y’all.”
