No. 13 Fox in the Snow Cafe
1031 4th St., Columbus, Yelp rating: 4.5 stars
Sample Yelp review: “This place is a must try! Be prepared to go early or before you’re hungry, as there’s almost always a line and limited seating. They’re focused on an “old fashioned” vibe, as they do not have WiFi and everything is made with tender care. Comfortable and cozy environment (even when busy), delicious coffee, and even better food and bakery items.” — Mandy S.
No. 14 Upper Cup Coffee
79 Parsons Ave., Columbus, 614-220-0206, Yelp rating: 4.5 stars
