Kittie’s Cakes under new ownership; Launch of Take Me Tacos

Openings and announcements

Kittie’s Cakes‘ two locations are now under new ownership. New operators, Steve and Diane Herman, made the announcement this week on Facebook: “We are delighted to announce that we are the proud new owners of Kittie’s Cakes in Bexley and German Village! We look forward to continuing our partnership with residents and visitors to these fantastic communities. Stop by and say hello to us and our wonderful team of bakers and baristas!” Known for its cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, cookies and Stumptown coffee, Kittie’s was founded in 2011 by Kelly and Mollie Fankhauser, who opened the bakery at 495 S. Third St in German Village. The couple then sold the business, which had by then added a Bexley store, to Angela Petro’s catering business, Together & Co.

Shannon Bowman, a Columbus caterer who founded Bentos, launches Bring me some tacos, a build-it-yourself taco/taco bowl concept. Customers can have individual meals, family packs (4-5 people) or party packs (9-10 people) delivered directly to their home or office. “People want food delivered. But not all food is good by the time it gets to people, because it was supposed to be delivered to a table 10 paces away, not to a house 10 miles away,” Bowman said in a press release. “This concept is designed specifically to bring fresh food right to your doorstep that is always delicious when it arrives.” Take Me Tacos, which offers delivery and pickup starting today, operates from Bentos’ corporate headquarters at 1520 N. Cassady Ave. on the east side.

Honey Cup Coffee Co. now serves coffee drinks daily at Rambling House (310 E. Hudson St.) in the Old North. Honey Cup hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

A new nightlife destination is coming soon to downtown Columbus. Black Living Room slated to open in July at 15 W. Cherry St.

As stated earlier, Neighbor’s Deli (2142 W. Henderson Road) is scheduled to close permanently on Saturday, May 21.
