The Mozart’s Bakery & Piano Café in Columbus: Anand Saha left India to study hotel management in Europe, where he met Austrian native Doris Tinter, training to become a pastry chef. They shared a dream of owning a business, which became reality in 1995 with the opening of Mozart’s Bakery and Café.
Today, the Sahas have three more stores: Mozart’s (North Market); Café Mozart (on Indianola); and Café Amadeus (363 E. Town St.). They all offer free wireless Internet access and fabulous food, and the High St. and Indianola locations offer live classical music every weekend. They also hold a High Tea, with more than 20 teas and a mouth-watering display of canapés and pastries, each Tuesday through Sunday from 2 pm to 4 pm (reservations required).
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are also available, with choices ranging from Ham, Mushroom, and Swiss Omelet to Muesli to Eggs Amadeus, and such lunch/dinner specials as Hungarian Goulash, Mushroom and Asparagus Quiche, three kinds of Schnitzel, and Spaetzle with Spinach and Swiss Cheese. More familiar fare, such as a burger, is also available.
And all four locations offer goodies like apple strudel, napoleons, petit fours, and tortes (including my favorites, tiramisu and lemon cream), available in individual servings or as whole desserts. Prices vary; call for details. Or stop by for a bite and pick up one of their popular mini gift boxes while you’re there. If you don’t come away groaning in delight and repletion, you have more self-control than I do!
