Home to the famous “Burnt Almond Torte,” Prantl’s Bakery has been around for over 100 years. Serving up German tradition, Prantl’s offers everything from old-fashioned fruit danishes and nutty coffee cakes to fresh baked bread and pepperoni rolls. Some of their newer favorites include key lime pie, buttery croissants, and huge chocolate chip cookies dipped in chocolate and sprinkles! In addition to their iconic location in Shadyside, they recently opened a third location in Greensburg, as well as expanding the space and products in Market Square Downtown.
Prantl’s strives for greatness, as they serve “The Greatest Cake in America” and build custom orders with their consumers to create the perfect combination of a sweet treat for any special occasion. They have over 100 sinful sweets, some are always in store and others are made-to-order or seasonal. If you’ve never visited Prantl’s, you need to work one of their mouth-watering treats into your daily routine. It’s a sinful sweet you won’t regret!
