This morning we peaked in to Sassafras Bakery’s soft opening in the new brick-and-mortar space in Olde Worthington. We’ve enjoyed following the updates online, as the cafe has been remodeled, equipment was installed, decorations placed.
It’s been especially fun to follow the progress of Sassafras’ owner, AJ Perry. We’ve been big fans of hers at the Worthington Farmers Market over the years, so to see this space materialize is very exciting. It can be found at 657 High Street in the middle of Olde Worthington, next to the Worthington Inn, around the corner from Igloo Letterpress, and across the street from spots like House Wine and The Candle Lab. In other words, they’re in good company.
Just look for the signs out front!
Already there are some sweet decorations up, including a full wall of pie tins.
We stopped in to look around and, of course, to pick up some Sassafras treats like donut muffins.
There’s also warm cinnamon rolls.
A tower of scones.
Cookies that your kids will spot instantly.
Lots of goodies. Sassafras is also serving Cafe Brioso coffee.
Early reviews suggest it’s a big hit (as if there was any doubt).
There’s a retail shelf that’s being stocked with Columbus goods like jams, cards, and a certain breakfast book.
Lots of street parking is available, plus a few spots down the side of the building. Just look for the signs!
