Lucabe Coffee Co.

Lucabe Coffee Co. has two locations.

The downtown location is a trendy and cozy café. It is the perfect meeting place to park for an afternoon, sip on a piping hot cup of coffee, and visit with friends. Although you can’t go wrong with any order, we recommend trying one of their seasonal offerings or sticking with an old favorite. Locals love their Honey Lavender Latte, the Lavender Matcha Spring Shaker with Coconut Milk, or Blueberry Mint Nitro Tea.

The newest location is steeped with architectural significance, just like the city of Columbus itself. Careful design preservation converted the original Irwin Union Bank and Trust in Eastbrook Plaza into once of the coolest coffee shops you’ll ever visit. Look for features reminiscent of when the building was a bank. For example, the bank vault has been converted into a kids play area. Overlooking the Haw Creek, this place is unique inside and out. Try the Lucabe Build Your Biscuit Menu. You won’t be disappointed!

Gramz Bakery & Café

Nestled in amongst the historic buildings of downtown Columbus, resides Gramz Bakery and Café. Pop in and try any of their 14 locally roasted drip coffees. Offering a full espresso menu, teas and even organic smoothies, this small, quaint café is the perfect place to sample all things coffee and pastries.
