Two Dollar Radio Headquarters – Vegan Coffee Shop

Ever since I saw this sweet little unicorn picture floating around instagram, I knew I needed to get in there. I knew it was a bookstore/coffee concept, but, didn’t know much more. Stephen and I stopped in Friday and I was blown away by what was much more than a coffee shop/bookstore.  They are an independent bookstore, bar, coffee shop, vegan cafe, event space, conversation starting, community cultivators and much more.

When I asked what they did before, I learned that they started as a family-run outfit in 2005 with a mission  to reaffirm the cultural and artistic spirit of the publishing industry and this is basically their headquarters. Husband and wife (Eric & Eliza) have published over 50 books. AMAZING.

Two Dollar Radio was started in 2005 by Eric Obenauf and Eliza Wood-Obenauf, an idealistic, young husband-and-wife team with a love of books. We were living in San Diego at the time, and after boomeranging back to New York City for a brief stint, we finally settled in Columbus, Ohio, where we are now proudly based, with our two children. In 2013 we added a film production arm, Moving Pictures, and then, after operating out of our living room for 12 years, and with lots of help and planning, we expanded into a retail space on the southside of Columbus, Ohio, in 2017, and named it Two Dollar Radio Headquarters! In the shop we carry the finest in independently published literature (including our own Two Dollar Radio titles), we serve up booze and coffee from a full bar, have a robust events schedule, and also serve house-made, plant-based, unicorn-level food.

THE SPACE IS INSANELY DREAMY. BRICK WALLS. BRIGHT LIGHT. WOODEN TABLES, CHAIRS AND BAR HAND MADE BY THE OWNERS. I BASICALLY WANT TO LIVE THERE.

THEIR BOOKSHOP CARRIES A CAREFULLY CURATED LIST OF TITLES ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY DEVOTED TO INDEPENDENTLY PUBLISHED LITERATURE.

KID FRIENDLY. HOW CUTE IS THE SPACE?

GREAT PRICES + THEY HAVE FREE WI-FI. NEW WORK SPOT. PERFECT FOR SOLO WORK, MEETINGS, HAPPY HOUR, ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.

THEY HAVE A 100% VEGAN FOOD MENU. I HEARD THE FLY WINGS ARE AMAZING.

PIZZA AND SANDWICHES. MY FAVORITES.

I HAD NO IDEA THEY HAD COCKTAILS OR BEER. MY HUSBAND ENJOYED A PBR – HIS FAVORITE. I DIDN’T GET A PICTURE, MOSTLY BECAUSE I DRANK IT IN TWO SECONDS ON THE WAY OUT, BUT, I HAD THE TOASTED MARSHMALLOW ICED LATTE AND IT WAS PHENOMENAL.

BAD & BOUJEE COCKTAIL, BASICALLY ITS ROSE AND VODKA. PAIRED BEST WITH ONE OF THEIR HAND-SELECTED BOOKS.
