Armed with vaguely memorized Google maps directions and a three-day jones for some good espresso, I went looking for Cafe Brioso today. Columbus has a whole bunch more cyclists than Louisville, so I felt relatively confident navigating the busy downtown traffic.
It turned out to be well worth the trip, as the latte I got was been the best I've yet to have in the 614.
The milk was a bit foamy but treated delicately- poured with what ostensibly was attempted latte art ( a heart perhaps? maybe a triangle.) The baristas were a little standoffish but the espresso was tasty and it proved to be a pleasant experience.
I imagine I will be spending a lot of time there.
