Q | What are the most popular items on your menu? Why?
A | Our Fork and Knife Burrito is one of our top sellers. It has potatoes,
black beans, avocado, mozzarella cheese, house-made salsa verde, and is
topped with two over easy eggs. It is just a big, hearty, comforting meal
that everyone can enjoy. We also offer freshly-squeezed orange juice and customers
love it. Mainly because it is freshly-squeezed to order, and also because
the machine used is cool to watch!
Q | Are there any items NOT on your menu that are staff favorites (that you’d be willing to serve up to any customer who asked)?
A | We used to have Baked Eggs on our menu, but took it off last year. People
still come in and ask for it and we will always make it if requested.
Q | Why is the baker so angry?!
A | This is a very common question. The name came from a nickname from a long
time ago. Everyone at The Angry Baker is very focused while working, but
no one is really angry.
Q | Chocolate Dr. Pepper cake. Please elaborate! Who came up with this idea?
A | A good friend of mine is from Texas. Dr. Pepper was created in Texas, and
my friend loved baking cakes using it as the main ingredient. I decided to
have the cake in the bakery as sort of an homage to him, and added fresh
blackberries and ganache to put it over the top.
Q | What makes your bakery different from others in the city?
A | I think what sets us apart is that we really do it all, and do it all from
scratch. We have a full pastry case every day, offer breakfast and lunch,
bake bread, make specialty cakes, provide wholesale bread and pastries to
restaurants all over Columbus, and we also provide catering.
Oh and by the way…they have a small patio in the back! I had no idea! Go check it out :)
