Pistachio – a sweet kitchen
Tuesday – Friday 10 AM – 6 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM to 5 PM
Pistachio is tucked away on Pearl Alley in the Short North – but it’s off the beaten path location has not kept customers or local and national media away, this bakery has become the darling of the culinary press and rightly so. Pistachio does everything right – product, presentation, and people – exceptional staff. The second I walk through the door, I am happy (and that is not my nature). Everyone is sincerely perky and maybe a bit pumped up about their premiere pastries, cookies, and cakes.
The Lemon Iced Ginger Cookie (above) is my current favorite – small and simple but quickly addictive.
Here is a peek into the showcase
And a taste of what the “Pro’s” are saying.

Pistachio is moving to German Village in September 2007
The Short North will be losing a favorite spot for many residents and visitors sweet tooth. Pistachio has announced that they are leaving their Pearl Alley location and moving to German Village at 541 South Third Street. The new location will give them more parking and an outside garden courtyard. And there is a new name – Pistacia Vera.
