Blend Cafe and Bakery

A Place to Build Community

When you visit Blend Bakery and Cafe, you’re not just getting a cup of coffee or fresh-baked pastry. You’re helping to train the next generation of culinary professionals through Columbus State’s hospitality and culinary arts program. At Blend, students and bakery staff work together craft scratch-made baked goods, soups, salads, and sandwiches. It’s the perfect place to grab a bite and meet a friend in the heart of the downtown Discovery District, all while supporting the wider community. Gratuities from the cafe are donated to the Mid-Ohio Market at Columbus State, which provides fresh food and other necessities for those in need.
