I happened across two good food sources this week, and thought that I should tell all the good people of the Pittsburgh TA forum about them asap. I hope you will do the same if there is some little place you know about.
1. Pittsburgh Popcorn Company has opened a store downtown on Liberty Avenue (near the entrance to what used to be the Gimbel's parking garage).* They've been open downtown for a couple months. Wonderful popcorn, so much better than most. The chocolate caramel is great, as is the cheese corn. I haven't tried the regular butter and salt corn yet, too tempted by the other flavors. Check it out if you have any interest in popcorn.
2. Today, I happened upon "Peace, love and little donuts", a little hole in the wall at 2018 Smallman Street serving very fresh donuts. These are what I think of as old fashioned donuts, a little cakier than the puffed up air donuts like Krispy Kremes (not that I don't eat those too). I bought two kinds of mini donuts, cinnamon sugar, and powdered sugar, both still warm. Delicious.
I do eat real food too, even vegetables and fruit, but everyone knows where to get those. It's these little treats that I hope to hear about.
*Native Pittsburghers will appreciate the reference to things that aren't there anymore.
