Toast Bar

While eggs and bacon take center stage, toast is generally relegated to a supporting role at the breakfast table. So when my daughter and I heard that Dan Reisenberger — better known locally as “Dan the Baker” — had opened an eatery dedicated to toast, we were curious to check it out.

Goodale Park

What would a city be without its playful oases of green? Downtown Columbus — and the Victorian Village neighborhood, to be precise — has a great oasis in Goodale Park. This 32-acre, 163-year-old park sits just north of Interstate 670, which lends a soundtrack of humming traffic to the beautiful scenery in the park and the horizon of skyscrapers to the south.
