Great pastries! Cannot say enough good about the kolaches, peanut butter blossoms and buckeyes. The donuts are good too, but I think these novelty items are just so much more interesting :) Been here twice in the last month and planning on coming back for more!
Very good pastries and cake I really enjoyed it but but the person who served me she had a little attitude
Best cake ever
Their cupcakes and donuts are pretty good. Service was never short of friendly and timely. I wanted to order a cake once and they were pretty upfront about the prices and times (decided not to go with them). Reason for the 5 stars is they're open 6 AM and they have the best cinnamon rolls I've come across. More...
Wow, they have the most beautiful pastries and cakes. This place has high end baked goods and the prices are a bit high. You get what you pay for. Scrumptious. Beautiful cakes too. More...
Cannolis are the best
Delicious and fresh
Excellent Cupcakes!! ! I ordered a few dozen for the office today and they were a hit. So much easier than a big cake. I had the carrot cake gourmet flavored cupcake.. it was like a dream. Delivery available too ! Thanks Priory Fine Pastries! More...
Everything is delicious!! No matter what you choose you can't go wrong.
Everybody Raves about the cupcakes I get from here. I just wish they would have a container that held two of them securely.
My Granddaughter's Birthday cake was amazing! Customer service was great. The counter guy carried the cake and cupcakes to the car for us. I would use them again in a heartbeat. More...
Great bakery and tons of option! Kathy is awesome!
Had our cake tasting today, everything was delicious and the options are endless! Kathy, the assistant manager, was an absolute pleasure to work with made the experience fun. Highly recommend!
Awesome donuts! Way better tasting than the corporate donut shop that is dunking and less money
Delicious goodies!! Once you get in there, you kind of want one of everything and you should go ahead and indulge yourself. There isn't a bad pastry in that shop. More...
Very nice looking cakes!
Lika sum boooooody
I'm in construction and I work all over the city . I enjoy some good sweets for my morning coffee break ... The Priory is by far the best and I've been to every Bakery there is in Allegheny County if I'm anywhere near North Side I make my way over and enjoy
Great local bakery! Skip the franchise places and get a tasty coffee beverage and delicious pastry here. You won't be disappointed!
Had a wonderful wedding cake tasting this morning! Got to taste everything. The chef is great to work with. So excited for the cake!
Great donuts and cinnamon rolls
High quality bakery foods and pastries. Extremely polite staff and great customer service. Christmas cookies and the best scones around. They bake high wedding and all occasion cakes as well. More...
Our first experience at getting a cake from Priory Fine Pastries far exceeded my expectations! I never had a cake so moist. And the icing was delightfully less sweet than the other regular BAKERY where I used to go. But all the flavor was all there! And the detailing in the artwork was so pretty and delicate. Your BAKERY is now my favorite place to get cakes! More...
I was in the area and sore the sign for pastries and I think my car parked itself.The Priory Fine Pastries has an excellent selection.Te staff are friendly and helpful and very nice.I had a cupcake and a cannoli.Both were excellent and extremely tasty.I would say pricing was a bit higher than some other bakeries.If I was in the area I would defiantly stop in againI would recommend to all my fellow yelpers to stop in and give them a shot. More...
nice little pastry shop. good donuts and danishes.
Delicious and friendly staff!
I grew up south of Pittsburgh and haven't been back in a long time. We went to Pittsburgh for a football game and seen the bakery on line so I wanted to stop in. The bakery case was full of all the flavors of home. The bakery really took me back. We called them Lady locks but the cream horns tasted like my aunt made them. The nut rolls were great. Mom made those. The pastry dough was very nice and flaky. Yes I ate a dinner plate of sweets with coffee while I was there. If in Pittsburgh there are a lot of good bakeries but this one is on the top of my list. Thanks Bruce More...
Supurb. Probably very finest bakery in Pittsburgh. Not as wide a daily selection in the cases as some, but a vast menu of options for order ahead items, and they were able to customize their carrot cake recipe for our wedding cake to leave out the nuts.
Always a pleasure to be there, such professional and artistic bakers
Love this place......
This is an awesome bakery! First class pastries, and I'm kind of an authority when it comes to sweets. You have to get there early. And they also have some terrific sandwiches, great for lunch. More...
Excellent prices and friendly environment. Their pastries are really good and their pies are terrific. I started a new tradition in the family, when I bought my first Priory pies. Now, fro every Holiday and family occasion, they ask me to bring the Priory's blueberry and apple pie - no matter the season! I don't live in the area any more, but I used to have a quick breakfast there often. A Pittsburgh gem and a neighborhood treasure! More...
Another 4 dozen for my postal coworkers. These are the best donuts I’ve had, by far!!
Great prices for fantastic baked goods. Everything they're taste delicious! Photos of their custom cakes are simply amazing!
This bakery is EVERYTHING. I always pick up from here for morning meetings and sweet treats. Incredible pastries, cupcakes, and cakes!
Beautiful, delicious carrot cake!
An amazing little bakery that many folks don't even know exists. Delicious cookies and cupcakes. Much better than grocery store.
Best bakery.....great sandwiches.....friendly, nothing compares to Priory Bakery
Delicious cakes and great bakery!
The donuts are delicious
Priory Fine Pastries did a beautiful job for my event!
Nice place, reasonably priced for how fancy the pastries are. Sticks out like a sorry thumb in the part of town it's in.
Always fresh and GOOD!
Friendly staff, wonderful cupcakes, cookies, and pecan rolls.
Very good and affordable
I've never had anything from the Priory that I haven't loved!
Great pecan rolls
After the first place we were recommended to get our wedding cake fell through due to a lack of communication, we contacted Kathy 2 1/2 weeks prior to our wedding and she made our short timeline work. The tasting was excellent and Kathy walked us through the different combinations and options to meet our needs. We also ended up purchasing pastries to go and the donuts were delicious! Highly recommend the Priory for a wedding cake/cupcakes or pastries to go! More...
Absolutely the best! We live 45 minutes away on a low traffic day and try to make it once a month! Yum!
super people, super goodies. Need Gluten Free items
Thank you so much for making the most perfect cake for our wedding at the Mansions!!! It was so tasty and our guests absolutely loved It!
I love my dad’s birthday � cake the train � is amazing
Clinton Shorty Davis
Although I'm not a fan of the priory coffee, I have went out of my way more than once to come here for the cream cheese iced cinnamon rolls and "monster muffins" with the kosher cut sugar on top, blueberry, chocolate chip, Apple cinnamon, whatever. They're all pretty frickin bomb. Tm More...
This Bakery has a great friendly atmosphere with wonderful pastries. The Birthday cakes are to die for
The owner is a very Nice person. Definitely a Bakery you have to visit. More...
The Best PO BOYS in town! Surf & Turf is delicious but very spice! So Grab your water! Great atmosphere & great Customer Service! Nice place!
I cannot believe I've lived here a year and just found this amazing bakery! First of all, it is so cool inside. Perfectly designed small space, and so clean. Definitely is a pleasant surprise on E. Ohio St. The donuts are big and the buttercream is now my new favorite. So creamy and not crazy sweet. I also had a raspberry pecan muffin that was out of this world. Perfect texture, again not insanely sweet, large raspberries, sugar crystals on top, perfection. Heaven sent. I will be a regular at this bakery. More...
We've ordered multiple times for birthday cakes and special occasions and their cakes never disappoint! The cake is always so delicious and very moist! The icing is never sweet but very butter creamy and just oh so delicious! If your the type of person like myself that doesn't like sweet cake, this is the place for you! More...
Jennae Renai Dock Dungan-Pappa
I love everything you guys make! I tried a different Bakery since they're new and got one of their 'gourmet' cupcakes. Well let's say I instantly regretted it and that nothing compares to you guys and your expertise! I always get me cakes here. Cheese cakes are phenomenal! Nothing I haven't liked or enjoyed! More...
This was the first time I've purchased from here, but it won't be my last. Reasonably priced and the cake was well executed and delicious.
I just had the salted caramel muffin and I think I may have found the key to peace on Earth.
Man this place is on point! Best biscotti I've ever tasted. Blueberry muffins are killer and donuts will blow your mind!
Pretty good muffins
The owners and staff are welcoming and the baked goods and coffee are first class!
A top bakery in Pittsburgh...
Spectacular cupcakes. Able to accommodate large orders. Dodgy area.
Love the place and the people are very friendly and creative. The cakes simply can't be matched for presentation and taste. I worked with a cake decorator and he suggested some details that brought the whole design together. The cupcakes here, especially red velvet, are the best in the city. The place is small but go there. Blows Oakmont Bakery out of the water. More...
Stopped by for a quick snack. All the single cookies and mini pastries were around 70 cents, a good price! We bought the nut kolachi, chocolate fingerprint cookie and orange cookie. Service was ok; the person behind the counter didn't know what kind of nuts were in the kolachi. I tried it anyways, and it was yummy- I think it was almonds and pecans? The other pastries looked delicious too. More...
My Raspberry filled cake was delicious, got it yesterday gone today
I'm not sure what they are called, but the cookies with chocolate and caramel drizzled on them are to die for!! So buttery and delicious--never had anything like them! My boss brings them into work from time to time and she knows to save these ones for me! Can't wait to check this place out myself and see what other amazing pastries I find! More...
Excellent selection of fresh baked goods. Coffee and some lunch or breakfast items also available. Good service and no waiting in the early afternoon.
Awesome local bakery! Great variety of pastries! Bonus: La Prima coffee! I definitely recommend this Pittsburgh gem!
After a particularly bad week, my wonderful hubby wanted to cheer me up and knows that baked goods never cease to turn my frown upside down (seriously, try being grumpy while eating a cupcake....it can't be done). So on a Saturday morning, he snuck away to Priory Fine Pastries and surprised me later that day with a sampling of goodies. I had never had anything from this bakery before, so I was excited to try it. He bought me a burnt almond torte cupcake and a vanilla thumbprint cookie to try (plus a chocolate thumbprint and lady lock for himself). Apparently when my husband was at the bakery, the baker decorated a burnt almond torte cupcake specifically for him, as they didn't have any in the case yet (it was early in the morning). And let me tell you...it was one of the freshest, tastiest cupcakes I've ever had. I hate to say it, because Prantl's is my everything, but I *think* I might have actually liked Priory's burnt almond torte cupcake better?! Priory's frosting is a touch airier than Prantl's (but still sweet), which I think I have a slight preference for. The vanilla thumbprint cookie was also super fresh and had the perfect consistency (soft but still retaining a bit of shortbread-like bite). Although lady locks typically aren't one of my favorite bakery items, I stole a bite of my husband's and thought it was delicious...it had a nicely crisp shell and a creamy filling that wasn't too sweet. Overall, my husband's mission to cheer me up was a rousing success...not only did the influx of sugary carbs make me happy, but I've discovered a new spot for securing fresh, tasty baked goods (not that I need ANOTHER bakery to be addicted to, but what can you do?) :) More...
As someone who is addicted to everything that is sweet, I have been to all of pittsburgh's bakeries and devoured many of their offerings good and bad. In *new pittsburgh* there's a lot of showy new bakeries that offer utter shit for twice the price. I say let the nuevo riche eat their underwhelming and overpriced cake. However, this place is the real deal. I sampled 6 things, all were delicious. Not 1 was a miss. And priced at *old pittsburgh* prices means your pockets won't be emptied if you get more than one thing. More...
This lovely place has the best donuts, cakes, cookies... And at a reasonable price! I order my children's cakes here every year. They are always beautiful, delicious and affordable. I recommend this place to every one! More...
Omg maaaaaaannnnthis place is heaven they need one in every neighborhood
Joni L. Chapman-Abel
Everything I've ever had from there has been delicious. And they have the best Hazelnut coffee!
The best Bakery in Pittsburgh!! The best donuts ever, we order every cake from here and they are so decently priced. The best! �
The finest pastries and cake. I ordered a Vienna based dessert, sachertorte and the result was the most delicious cake that was wonderful during Christmas. Having eaten the original at the Sacher Hotel in Vienna this was just as good. More...
I had a terrible experience at Arnold's tea down the street while vacationing in Pittsburgh with my family- Lets just say I do not recommend that place if you have kids with you, if you are from out of town, or you are looking for a place that values loyal customers. I still come to Pittsburgh for work, so I was on a mission for someplace else. Wow! I'm thrilled I decided to give this small business a chance. Over the months i have literally tried every pastry and have yet to find something I didn't like. The sandwiches and coffee are just as delicious. I also bought my son's birthday cake from here and everybody was asking where I got it from. Yes- I literally flew home with this cake on my lap; it was that good!! I really wish I had a small bakery like this near my home- the locals here are so lucky. Not only is the food fantastic, but the service is top notch, the prices can't be beat, and this place makes EVERYBODY feel welcome. They respect patrons and truly value them. Try it out; you won't be disappointed. Just get there early- things sell out quick! More...
We ordered a wedding cake from Priory Fine Pastries for our August 2016 wedding. From the first meeting, the cake tasting was delicious and the final cake was just as good! They work with you to stay within your budget and can do different combinations of flavors based on what is offered. We had a two tier white/buttercream wedding cake and a sheet cake, half carrot/cream-cheese and half chocolate/raspberry. I had a specific idea in mind for the way the tiered cake would look (working with the florist as well) and they matched it beautifully to the reference images! We were also able to rent a cake stand. Side note: A few of the workers had to be reminded that our wedding was on a Friday (for a 5 pm delivery time) because on Saturday the latest they can deliver is 3 pm. More...
Last minute was able to get a gorgeous birthday cake My dad suggested going here &He wasn't disappointed at all I would say Little high but my dad say you pay for quality and he is right thanks again
What a great little place to stop on the North Side for coffee and pastries. Free donut with purchase of a large coffee. The treats here are exactly as you'd expect: sooooo yummy!!! My favorite is the red velvet cupcake and I dare say the chocolate chip canoli cupcake is amazing. Brownies to die for. I plan to order birthday cakes from them in the future as well. More...
Orange Scones are delicious. Get them every weekend. We call ahead because apparently the secret is out.If we don't place the order on Friday, by the time we get there they are sold out.
Very nice bakery. Had coffee and a pastry at 6 AM twice during our visit to Pittsburg. My granddaughter had a cupcake which was excellent. (Yes, she got up that early.) Ohio street looks kind of tough but every one minded their own business when I walked down the street at 3 PM. Would recommend getting volunteers to clean up the litter in the street. Will definitely read my newspaper and have a treat there on our next visit. More...
I was 100% satisfied with my order. This was my first time using this bakery for a party. They did an amazing job on the cake... and the cupcakes were so delicious! I definitely recommend this place for a birthday! All my guests were blown away! More...
The best muffins I have ever had in my life! I first tried their muffins when a coworker brought them in for my birthday. After being blown away, I had to stop in to try their other confections. Even after sampling a variety ranging from doughnuts, scones, and danishes, I would still say their muffins are my favorite. The muffins are incredibly moist and perfectly sweet, but not too sweet. What I love is how they top the muffins which I've seen sugar, streusel, or nuts depending on what kind of muffin you get. You really can't go wrong with any of them so I recommend getting at least one of each! Unfortunately for me, they have typical bakery business hours so the only time I can stop in is on Saturday mornings. I will definitely be making this bakery a regular stop when a sugar craving strikes! More...
They are the best bakery in Pittsburgh. I love there muffins.
Love this place. We used it for our wedding cake and our baby reveal. The cakes were beautiful and delicious!
Stopped in for the first time this morning after passing it everyday going to work. Definitely will go again. I got a chocolate Bavarian cream donut which was very good along with a coffee which was good as well. All of the other pastries and baked goods looked good as well. Will most likely start going here a couple times a week for breakfast! More...
Best bakery in Pittsburgh.
It's strange that that there is a high-end ish bakery in the Northside, but that's what this is! I went there last week and have been there twice before and everything I got was really, really good. The only reason that I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that I wish there was a tad more variety of things you're able to get in the store. But I've only ever gone there at around 4pm, they close at 5 so there is probably a lot more pastries and things in the morning. Plus they don't bake fresh breads and that was a bummer.Last week I got some cannolis which were awesome. I also got a macaron, if you're a fan of macarons then you know their regular size, this raspberry macaron was gigantic and DELICIOUS!!Totally recommend this bakery! More...
The best bakery I have ever been too. Friendly people, in my home town. I got the breakfast panini combo. YummyJelly doughnut was excellent! We got a birthday cake for my birthday. I'm sure it's just as good. More...
Waking to Armold's Tea, I stopped in for a quick look and picked up a bavarian cream chocolate donut. It was the best I've ever had. And I've had my share. The donut was not greasy, fresh, light and fragrant. The cream inside was delicate and creamy. The chocolate was rich and complex. Every bite was a pleasure and left the donut intact. The store was filled with all kinds of bakery delights. Everything you could ever want and it all looked good to me. Again, I just ate a donut. More...
Excellent pastries and food. The proprietors are helping to gentrify an the area that has been under decay for decades. Good luck to them!
Sheryl Markovitz Sternberg
Simply put.... THE BEST EVER !!! Coming in from Monroevile to the Priory was worth the drive and traffic!!
These are great sweets. A wide variety of donuts and cookies as well as tea and coffees. Next time I will try the cakes.
I haven't even left my parking spot yet and I feel the need comment! Their donuts are delicious and the young lady that helped me was friendly and adorable. We're from California and I want to come back to Pittsburgh just got to Priory! More...
Thank you to the bakery and pastry chef at the Priory bakery for helping to make our wedding celebration so special (7/12/14). My husband and I chose the Priory bakery for our wedding cake because of its strong reviews and we were really glad we did. The cake, icing and fondant that was used was absolutely delicious (we had one 8 inch red velvet cake with fudge layered inside and one 6 inch chocolate cake layered with raspberry) and the presentation was just as wonderful. We were looking for a more unique twist on the traditional wedding cake and the Priory accommodated us buying our own cake topper and they made sure that it was placed carefully on top for the reception. My husband and I live in the Cleveland area but we look forward to going back to the Priory when we are next in Pittsburgh and picking up some yummy cupcakes. More...
As a sweets-connoisseur, I will say they simply make magic happen out of this place. Anytime we buy cookies or cakes for a party, we get major compliments on them. Better than Moios. Better than Oakmont. Yes i said it. More...
Mary Ann Kapello
Excellent. We used this bakery for my daughter's wedding.
Cute bakery and friendly staff. Don't really know the prices of pastries because we were there for wedding cake tasting. Cake was great but not the price. Got to taste all batters and all fillings and could make up combos too (5 cupcakes and 7 fillings in a small dish). Price we got quoted was almost as much as our limo bus so we will not be using them for our cake. Again very good just not what we are willing to spend on a cake especially because we don't care really about cake other than chowing down on it! More...
I'm always a fan of the Priory. Fantastic selection and everything always seems very fresh, as in same day fresh. Prices seem fair and the customer service is always great. A fantastic establishment on the North Side! More...
Love them! I always get the cake for my children's Bdays here. Always helpful and friendly and have no problem making the requested design AND they taste delicious!
That strawberry and cream cupcake may be the best I ever had.
I find myself become a regular here simply for a sweet pick me up. I like their butter cream donuts and cupcakes. Tip let the cupcakes warm up to room temp so that the buttercream frosting softens up. The sugar cut out cookies are delicious too. Also don't expect donuts on Saturday, either they don't make them or they sell out super fast. More...
Good coffee, great cheese danishes, delicious tiny cheesecakes, yummy pumpkin treats, and tasty peanut butter and chocolate rice crispy treats!A nice place on a street that I absolutely hate. More...
Holy canoli, I just had a canoli from this place that blew my mind. Definitely recommended.
I really like the Priory's cupcakes. I have brought them to the office, given them as birthday gifts, and eaten plenty of them myself and they are always met with rave reviews. My favorite is the "north sider," a vanilla cupcake with PB frosting and clark bar on top. The burnt almond torte is a close second and always a good choice.I honestly haven't tried anything from this bakery except the cupcakes--because they're SO GOOD that whenever I come here that's what I end up ordering! More...
I do think that the Priory Fine Pastries is one of the few respectable businesses on East Ohio Street and it's very pleasant to have such a fine business located on the Northside.On several occasions I have purchased birthday cakes for both my mom and my sister. The fruit danish is also very good. I appreciate the small shop feel of Priory Fine Pastries and I am glad to seem them succeeding. More...
I'm a big fan of the Priory bakery. I've been going here ever since I moved to the North Side when I first moved to Pittsburgh 6+ years ago. I've tried countless cupcakes and pastries over the years, and while the richness of their icing may not be everyone's favorite, it sure resonates well with my taste buds!My wife ordered cakes for my birthday from there, as well, and both were very tasty. Their almond torte cake was phenomenal. In fact, just writing about it makes me want to pick one up just because this weekend.Everyone that works there has always been very pleasant to deal with, as well, which leaves me where absolutely nothing to complain about. Well, aside from the weight that the Priory won't allow me to keep off. More...
I have to give the Priory two thumbs up (or 5 stars).... they never disappoint. They also have better service than a few other local bakeries. The cupcakes are great, cookies are amazing and they make a mean almond torte cake. They also bailed me out when a certain other local bakery messed up my husband's birthday cake order. Great bakery, lots of choices and nice people makes for a great experience! More...
The best muffins, especially the blueberry, that I've ever had! If you're not a fan of a really dense muffin and want something that practically melts in your mouth, then you have to try these. Their other stuff is great too.
Cute little bakery with pretty good cupcakes and friendly staff.Upon further inspection online, I discovered some wonderful tidbits on the history of this shop. On the current site of Priory Fine Pastries, was the D.L. Clark Candy Company -- who happened to produce the famous Clark Bar. Isn't that special? I think so. We ordered two cupcakes, a vanilla and a peanut butter cup, and a cup of coffee. We sat down to warm ourselves up after having walked around in the chilly spring air (and after I had been groped by some creep in the nearby Goodwill). So yeah, we needed some sweets and caffeine. Charming and quiet little spot that was nice to just sit for a bit. More...
We ordered cupcakes for my mom's birthday. They were great. Not too much icing and not too sweet. The red velvet and chocolate/vanilla were fabulous. They also make great scones...we had them at the Priory Hotel.Visit this wonderful neighborhood bakery! More...
Best Cupcakes in City of Pittsburgh. If you saw my waistline, you'd know that I've got a little sweet tooth! I certainly could afford to lose a little me, but I can't go cold turkey. So, instead of cakes, I'm on to cupcakes and absolutely love the ones from Priory Fine Pastries. I especially adore their Northsider and Chocolate Knockout. And, I hate carrots, but love their carrot cake ones too. New baker has taken this place to a whole new level of great taste! It's a pretty little bakery as well. More...
I meant Paczki. Sorry---I love those damn donuts... -----25 Aug, 2010----- Wonderful Pastry Shop. I love this pastry shop because the everyday fare is delicious - especially the macaroons, but also because they do season items like King Cakes and Pazckis. They also bake bread, make gourmet chocolates, and have fancy cupcakes too! I hope more places open like this on East Ohio Street. More...
Among the the controlled chaos that is East Ohio Street, right in the middle, near the Citizens Bank is the best little bakery I've been to for sweets of all kinds. Amazing handmade, homemade donuts, seriously gluttonous gobs, cookies and really good looking cakes. A nice peaceful oasis to sit and watch the scenes of East Ohio St.Don't get me wrong, I like East Ohio St. I lived and worked in Central Sq. Cambridge for years, and nothing that happens here will compare to the Central Sq regulars.Great place to get a snack or something nice to bring to a gathering. Also a great place to get a cake for birthday, wedding, or any occasion. Polite, friendly staff, excellent baked goods. More...
