You won't be disappointed in the menu and service. I had a brother come into town and asked me to take him back here. This place has a good atmosphere. Ambience reminds me of San Diego's scene. More...

It was so tasty. I've had nothing but pleasant experiences here and plan to keep coming back. The bill won't break you. I can see why they have so many good reviews.

Their pastries are a bit too sweet for me but the presentation is amazing and they are super friendly!

My wife and I ordered a vegan wedding cake from Bella Christie. First of all we thought it was awesome that they even offered that option. We're not vegan ourselves but we do like vegan cakes and not every bakery has them. Secondly, people were coming up to us at the wedding and telling us how great the cake was. And it really was. We had vanilla with peanut butter layers and a "buttercream" icing and no one could tell it was vegan. And it wasn't just one or two people, it was more than a dozen. Best of all they were super affordable and they delivered and the charge for that wasn't bad either. We had the top wrapped and in the freezer but we loved the cake so much that we decided to open it early and share it with our family on Thanksgiving. I honestly cannot say enough good things about our experience with Bella Christie. Thank you. More...

Bella Christie is the best! We did cake tastings at 3 different vendors and knew immediately that this was the best choice. From the initial meeting, where they let us mix and match all sorts of cake and topping flavors we felt they were organized, professional, and delicious! My husband and I wanted something different that regular cake and we asked if they could do cupcakes instead - they made the most adorable mini-cupcakes that really allowed us to add a unique element to our wedding and greatly expand the flavors available. I kept seeing guests making repeat trips to the cupcake table for more servings - they were that good. Highly recommend! More...

This place is great. I wanted to try something different for my sons birthday this year so we did cake pops instead of cake. They were amazing. As well as reasonably priced. They make other amazing creations as well. Highly recommend if you're in aspinall or lawrenceville that you stop in and check it out for yourself! More...

I purchased a cake for my boyfriends birthday. I asked for them to "draw some car things." I also told him he liked Hyundai, and purple/lime green are his favorite colors. They made him a Hyundai symbol out of fondant! It's beautiful! Ontop of that, the cake is delicious. I, also, purchased some spur of the minute cupcakes that were phenomenal. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this shop to everyone. More...

Bella Christies was by far the best ever. We ordered a "Little Man" themed cake for our sons 1st Birthday. The ordering process was easy, the cake was done on time and was absolutely beautiful. The taste was just as beautiful as it looked. They even gave a matching smash cake and I forgot to ask when I ordered! Thanks for going above and beyond. Your business and confections are extraordinary!!! I thank you again for helping my baby's first birthday be a huge success!!! More...

Bella Christie's cakes are the best in Pittsburgh, everyone at my wedding loved it! They also were able to deliver 2 hours away in the middle of the summer with no problems and the cake was gorgeous. I will only be ordering cake from Bella Christie's now, nothing could top it! More...

Bella Christie was such a pleasure to work with and was easy to choose for our cake for our wedding day! Amanda was so helpful, professional, and fun! Our cake was more than I could dream of. I absolutely loved the detail! And everyone keeps raving of how delicious the cake was too! I will definitely suggest Bella Christie to anyone planning their wedding!!! THANK YOU! More...

My daughter had her wedding cake and desert bar done by Bella Christie's. They were recommended to us by the vendor supplying the linens, dinnerware, etc. We had never heard of the shop, even though I drive by the store, I live very close. Anyway, we scheduled an appointment for tasting. We were not disappointed. My daughter does not like filling within cakes but loved the raspberry. So, she decided to use Bella Christie as their wedding bakery. She was over the moon. The wedding cake was gorgeous and quite delicious. The desert bar spectacular!!! Highly recommend! More...

I have had two different cakes from here, one vegan and one regular and they were amazing! The icing is the best I have ever had and the cake is so fresh! I have also had a few of their cupcakes and they are all amazing but the almond tort is to die for. And the prices are so reasonable! Found a new bakery that I will be using a lot more often!

They're very professional when I called. I had no idea what kind of cupcakes I wanted, and I called the day before my mom's birthday. I spoke to Amanda who took my order with alot of patience. I was just gonna get plain but she said can we jazz them up. When I got them home they were so pretty. They did a GREAT job! The cupcakes were so delicious I will be back again. More...

After scheduling the cake tasting for our wedding cake, we already knew Bella Christie would be different. The other bakeries we tried had a default flavor they gave us (wedding white or red velvet), without even asking for our thoughts and the tasting experiences themselves were awful (pushy staff, no seating, lack of options, small tasting portions). From the get go, Amanda instructed us to choose the cake flavors and fillings we wished to try. At the Aspinwall location, they had a nice table to sit at, offered us drinks, and brought us each three giant slices of cake in the desired flavors with the filling options in the center of the table. It was so fun to mix and match the different choices. Everything was delicious and the quality of the piping and design was fantastic! We've received so many compliments. We decided on chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and espresso buttercream fillings. (photos in comments) More...

I have worked with Bella Christie’s several times and everything they do is amazing. Top notch in taste, presentation and personality. They are clever and witty, fun to work with and they have taken decadence to a whole new level. More...

I have had multiple cakes made here for my kids parties and I am at the point where I do not even have to go into detail or send photos - I can say Snow White, baby shower, puzzle pieces for an adoption cake and I trust them and they nail it every time!

This last time I told them to tell me their favorite for filling and the lady told me she liked the cookie dough i never would have guessed that- needless to say i thought I prepared for left overs our whole two tier cake was gone! And people are still talking about it !!!!!!

Best place around hands down to get a cake!!!

Thank you Bella Christie for a gorgeous wedding cake! When I first saw the care - It took my breath away! It was so beautiful, I didn't want to cut it! The cake tasting was a blast! I have always been a chocolate person, but the white and vanilla cake you made has completely converted me! Thank you so much!! More...

Delicious desserts! When you're there, be sure to look around at the reclaimed wood and old pieces used in the building. It is beautifully done.

Had a half baked cookie there earlier today. Needless to say that this place has a great atmosphere and a great look. This is a must go if you are in Lawrenceville. The cookie was delicious and rich. Altogether I will return to this establishment. More...

Bella Christie’s is one of the best bakeries in Pittsburgh! My family uses them for almost every event. Their event coordinator, Amanda, does an amazing job to make sure your cake or bake goods are done exactly how you want them. She is responsive and always willing to help. I️ highly recommend Bella Christie’s! More...

I have used Bella Christie’s for MANY of our special occasions, our wedding, my baby shower, multiple family birthdays. You can’t ask for anyone better to work with than Amanda she is responsive and will get you exactly what you want and some things you don’t even know you want but wind up LOVING. The cakes they create are just beautiful and they come up with amazing designs OR just copy one that your husband drew from the top of his head for your wedding cake! Will continue to use them for many years to come! I love that they are a small independent bakery and know care about their customers. I have recommended them to everyone and anyone who asks.

Had one of their Manic Milkshakes. A little pricey for a milkshake, but the quality and the experience was to die for! So if you want to indulge, this is the place to do it! Fabulous atmosphere. Cupcakes, waffles, milkshakes......and milkshakes for your PET! More...

As someone who has a sweet tooth so serious that I need dessert after every meal, Bella Christie and Lil' Z's is my favorite spot for sweets! With such a wide selection, I can always find whatever I'm in the mood for and never leave disappointed! More...

Decent baked good but not perfect in presentation. The space is cute and fun but the cupcake was a bit dry and the macarons were served cold and didn’t have that chewy snap I was looking for. This place is worth the trip but it’s not the best boutique bakery I’ve been to. More...

Popped in to see what this place was all about. Loved walking in to the smell of a real bakery!
They have everything from fancy cakes, gluten free options, they even have treats for dogs.

I had a Hot Mess Cookie....which the name alone should be given a prize.

Absolutely divine! It's a generously sized cookie, soft, with crisp edges and has chocolate bits, toffee, peanut butter pieces..and probably some other magic deliciousness. Tried to make it last for two servings and failed.
