A step onto Bruster's Real Ice Cream front porch?where red wrought-iron furniture and blooming flowers pop against a white fa?ade?might as well be a step back into the good old days. Despite the traditional imagery, the ice-cream shop's exterior was recently remodeled so that customers could get the same enjoyment out of the environment as they do from a bowl or cone of its premium ice cream. The friendly staffers behind the counter not only scoop up the creamy dessert but also create custom cakes for special occasions, lead summer camps and birthday parties, and provide catering to private events.
The proudly independent family crew that runs The Pittsburgh Bagel Factory brings the same commitment to tasty food and early-rising work ethics that made their bagels a local staple to their new Craig St. location. After baking their bagels, which include everything from savory onion to multigrain wildberry, the kitchen staff puts them to work, schmearing them with cream cheese concoctions or sandwiching them with deli meats including oven-roasted turkey and kosher salami. Custom blends of eggs, morning meats, and cheese gussy up handheld comestibles, while burgers flip from sizzling grills to challah buns dressed with toppings ranging from grilled onions and mushrooms to fried eggs and peach barbecue sauce. Staff also pull shots of espresso to add to steaming mugs that vanquish sleepiness from faces.
The pastry chefs at Gone Cupcaking Across America share a wealth of gourmet cupcake experience with aspiring dessert artisans, in flavors that include whisked buttercream atop classic vanilla, chocolate, and red-velvet cake bases, and more exotic choices such as Grand Marnier or peaches 'n' cream. At lessons, students learn piping techniques, how to make frosting, and how to make iced flowers without the hassle of fertilizing regular flowers with milk and butter.

The servers behind the counter at Dream Cream Ice Cream all have a dream. Some want to pay off their student loans. Others want to raise money for a charity. Each of the shop's unique flavors corresponds to a server's dreams, and each month a percentage of proceeds benefits each dreamer's declared cause. Patrons can help make dreams come true while enjoying scoops of peanut-butter-cup, cookies 'n' cream, or mint ice cream or sampling a scoop of their favorite flavor submerged in hot chocolate.
After a night of romantic walks along the beach, Priory Fine Pastries was conceived as a way to dust a historic district with the sugar of life. Grown out of love for the community and passion for pie, the six-year-old bakery assembles an elite squadron of pastry chefs and lifelong dough punchers to whip up sweet, homemade treats by the baker's dozen. Locals can grab a tasty cup of joe, hot loaf of bread, or succulent sweet-tooth pleaser amidst a welcoming atmosphere.
