IMPORTANT OPERATING UPDATES
I am temporarily closed at this time due to a medical leave. I will announce my return as I start to heal and have a better idea of what my recovery will look like.
I look very forward to being back in the kitchen whipping up all the pierogi for you guys again soon!
Information will be updated the soonest via social media and newsletter updates, so please like/follow as well as subscribe for all upcoming operation updates.
Thanks again for your support and understanding.
Peace, love, & pierogi,
Full steam ahead!
Here are some of the things that will be coming up starting in June:
You might notice that I am adding on some extra hours... well, as of June 25th, I will officially be on a medical leave. It is anticipated that I may be closed for up to 6 weeks. PLEASE plan accordingly! I will provide updates for when I'll be reopening as I begin to heal. I am beyond overwhelmed with how I'm going to manage being closed for that long, but I'll take it day by day, as that's all that I'll be able to do.
Pre-orders are still opening on Saturday evenings! *Pre-orders will always include a few "extra" flavors that are available, so be sure to check in out!*
I have bumped each pre-order close day. If ordering for a Thursday pickup, orders need to be in by TUESDAYS at 9am. If ordering for a Friday pickup, orders will be closed by 9am on WEDNESDAYS. Remember that Calendly is your confirmation for when you'll pick up. The system generated confirmation is not guaranteed to be correct-it will not update*
The Farmer's Market officially kicked off last month! We had an excellent first day at the Farmer's Market, and we truly look forward to being out in the community once a month! Moving forward, kolaczki will not be available at the market, just pierogi. The temperatures did not treat the jam in the cookies well, and they essentially ended up twice baked by the end of the day since it was so hot... Here is my remaining market schedule for the season:
*Reminder- WE ARE AT THE MARKET ONLY ON MARKET DAYS. OUR STOREFRONT WILL BE CLOSED*
WESTERVILLE FARMER'S MARKET SCHEDULE:
Saturday, June 18th: 9a-12p
Saturday, July: TBD
Saturday, August 20th: 9a-12p
Saturday, September 17th: 9a-12p
Saturday, October 8th: 9a-12p **LAST MARKET OF THE SEASON*
Peace, love, & pierogi,
We are excited to be Columbus, Ohio's FIRST take & (h)EAT pierogi bakery! At this time we operate as a POP UP bakery, as I still maintain continuing to work behind the chair for my existing hair clients.
My pierogi are par-boiled/pre-cooked, leaving the hard stuff to me! Each pierog is crafted from scratch using fresh, quality ingredients. I mash the potato, dough is still made in smaller batches, fill and pinch by hand (Grandma would be proud! ;) )
and I will always maintain
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. ALWAYS.
In addition to high quality, homemade pierogi, I also serve up fresh made baked goods (Saturdays only at this time unless specified) when able.
*Kolackzi are typically available on Saturdays at this time. Making packzi regularly has not been able to happen at this time yet, as the dough needs many hours to proof, as well as needing to be paid attention to quite regularly. I hope to have pop-up days for just sweets in the near future!
You can find me at : 447 Lazelle Rd, Westerville, Oh 43081(the former Little Caesar's location- in between the Beer/Wine Drive Thru and Alterations Expert. Our signage is coming soon!)Days tend to vary at this time, as we work to be able to reach demand. *Please remember that I am still just a one woman show at this time, with my husband to help occasionally with ringing people out.
Our most consistent day at this time is Saturday from 10 - 2 . ***Please Check social media or Google to verify that I am open before you come**
OPENING DAY WAS A HIT!
Thanks to all of YOU!
Thank you so much to all of you who came out to visit us on our opening day! You really know how to welcome a Mom & Pop business to the neighborhood!
We are proudly an independently and locally woman owned business. We are first come first serve, and we work around our kids and family needs first.
While this might not be conventional to some, it is what works for us at this time. When the time is right, and the right people come along, we will gladly add to our team. At this time, Lizz is the sole producer of your homecooked goodness, and Jim helps out at the bakery when able. You'll typically see him on Saturdays at the register, running to grab things, or helping with dishes. We look forward to welcoming you into our bakery soon!
SWEET CLE-BUS! LTD. WELCOMES YOU
Not your Babcia's pierogi... because it's BETTER
MADE TO ORDER
Always Fresh, Always Tasty
Flavors rotate monthly
My pierogi flavors rotate monthly at this time. This allows the opportunity for those who are looking forward to trying out a flavor, will have a few weeks to catch it before it temporarily disappears. By creating a monthly rotation, this allows me to provide variety in a manageable way, and also increase output for all of you! More pierogi=more people able to try them! All pierogi are handmade from scratch - EVERY. TIME.
At my storefront, I will continue to provide that same small batch quality that you have grown to love and come to expect. All pierogi will also continue to be hand pinched- moving to a storefront does not eliminate quality. Quality over quantity will always be put into practice, each and every day.
Delicious fruit or nut filled cookies
In addition to kolackzi, be prepared to experience other traditional and non traditional favorites on a regular basis. I am looking forward to providing you with fresh, homemade baked goods, made only with love and quality ingredients.
Why do I continue to mention quality ingredients? Because not all brands are created equally, and texture and flavor are a derivative of that. I look forward to being able to provide the best and freshest product available in the area.
ONE LAST THING . . .
At this time, my response time is experiencing higher wait times than normal. I have been receiving a significantly higher volume of inquiries, and I am grateful to have both businesses as busy as they are. I am working to respond to things as soon as possible. I appreciate your understanding at this time. **PLEASE DOUBLE
CHECK THE FAQ TAB BEFORE SUBMITTING TO SAVE YOURSELF SOME TIME. MOST QUESTIONS SUBMITTED ARE COMMONLY ASKED, AND THERE'S A TAB FOR THAT :) **
IF YOUR QUESTION IS NOT ON THE LIST, THEN PLEASE SEND AWAY!
Please contact for inquiries.
**Please allow additional time for response- please be sure to verify the FAQ page prior to submitting- I tend to prioritize things that are more time sensitive or urgent vs a question already answered via FAQs . With only me behind the scenes, I'm often unable to put inquiries first at this time. Quality pierogi being available to as many of you as possible on my open days will always be my top priority at this time. For this same reason, we do not have a phone line to be reached at. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause, and I truly appreciate your continued patience and understanding**
