Food Scene
One of Columbus' few 5 Star restaurants, and they earn every one of them! THE place to be for an upscale New Years, and our home is walking distance! Quite possibly one of the nicest outdoor dining experiences in town.

Because you want a German dining experience while in German Village. Because it's one of the most unique restaurants in the midwest! Because they make their own sausage. Because it's a neat place. Because the food is awesome! Because they have a buffet. Because some people come to German Village JUST for Schmidts... and because "The Schmidt's Cream Puff". 'nuff said

Because local is better! You could go across the street to a huge chain and get coffee made from burned beans, but you'll like Stauf's better, and they have a great little patio too!

“The Topiary Park is a landscape of a painting of a landscape. … If an artist can paint a picture of a landscape — art mimicking nature — then why not a sculptor creating a landscape of a work of art — nature mimicking art? The topiary garden is both a work of art and a work of nature. It plays upon the relationships between nature, art and life.”
