Not your typical pizza place, everything on the menu is vegan. That’s right – EVERYTHING. But if you take your meat-loving friends they might never know. You must try the Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Crust pizza. We may be biased, but it’s easily the best in the city. Pizza is just a slice of what this upscale diner offers so be sure to check out their entire menu.

Garbage Pizza, Mikey’s Late Night Slice

Irreverent, ingenious, delicious. Pizza and pop culture combine for an over-the-top experience in an insta-worthy locale. If you’re not familiar with this iconic Columbus pizza joint, they’re known for in-your-face names like The Wedgie and Silence of the Buffalo Chickens. They’ve also got GF and vegan options so everyone can partake.  

While you’re there, check out other neighbors like Hadley’s, Dirty Frank’s, Little Palace or Spoonful Records – all within walking distance.

Perfect For: A late-night slice (trite but true)
