Most know the way to an iguana's heart is through its stomach, but it is useful to remember that human stomachs can be reached through the mouth, nose, eyes, and the emergency number on the refrigerator's dry-erase board. Today's Groupon stimulates your gentle iguana heart with a sensational feast of $20 worth of fresh bakery goods and confections for $10 at Priory Fine Pastries. You can purchase up to five Groupons, with a limit of one used per day, finally giving purpose to your 24-hour ostrich egg timer.
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.
Priory offers an ever-changing cast of cupcakes, pies, cakes, cookies, and more. Drop by to see what's fresh out of the gourmet oven, known to patisserie insiders as the inter-dimensional cookie closet. Monthly specialties offer a constant parade of fresh morsels. February brings a wide variety of Valentine's Day delights, including cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and more. Stop by to behold the peanut-butter pie ($15.99), which blankets a graham crust in rich brownies topped with a decadent peanut butter filling. Celebrate February's status as Cherry Pie Month, or call ahead to order some custom cupcake creations. When your greedy neighbor won't loan you a cup of sugar, stop by Priory Fine Pastries to pick up whatever warm, cakey creation is available at the time.
- The Northsider Cake is a quadruple stacked treat, boasting yellow batter smeared with peanut butter icing and spackled with Clark Bar shards. The outside is iced in buttercream with five more peanut butter dollops festooning the highest tier. There’s a decadent coating of ganâche and another Clark blessing on top. The cake is moist and light, but the bands of peanut butter laced throughout play beautifully with the candy bar’s honeycomb crunch. It’s a melding of every dessert fantasy — a melange of chocolate, vanilla, and peanut butter — and an indulgence to make any Pittsburgher proud. – Victoria Bradley, Whirl
- A few tables and chairs provide a comfortable area for relaxing with a scone and a cup of coffee, making the store a popular gathering place. – Laurie Villanueva, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
