Sugar Cafe Opens Today!

The much buzzed about, highly anticipated bakery-coffee shop, Sugar Cafe, opens today. I will definitely be making a stop in to sample the goods, take a look around, and enjoy the taste of something brand spanking new in our humble little borough of Dormont.

For more info on Sugar and its owner, Kelly James, check out the following links. And of course, check out the cafe itself, located right by the Potomac T Station on Potomac Avenue.

Also, apologies for my relative quietness this week. First it was too busy, then it was too nice outside to concentrate on typing. Rest assured, I have a ton of new posts coming up, including trips to Chaya and Sababa in Squirrel Hill. I’ve also been working on a few new features to debut, hopefully by the middle of next week, to run in addition to the general chatter that goes on around here. I’m going to cross my fingers and hope that I can get down to some serious writing business this weekend.

But seriously, how freaking gorgeous was it out there today? After work, I walked home, so that I could soak up the unseasonably warm weather and take a few shots of my beloved neighborhood. It seemed like the entire borough was out to enjoy the few precious days of respite from the cold. My favorite shot:

Enjoy it while it lasts, kids. The temperature is going to drop drop drop come Sunday.

  1. I’ve been waiting for Sugar Cafe to open. We drove past last weekend and saw signs but weren’t sure if they were yet open. Now I’m plotting some errand that will take us down Potomac Ave again!

  2. I have never ever been to Dormont, though I’m not a native Pittsburgh, just a native Western PAer. Any other restaurants in Dormont worth trying?

    • Yeah, there’s definitely places worth making a T ride over here. Dor-Stop. Mekong is exceptional Chinese-Vietnamese cuisine. Namaste India and Whiskey Hollow Grill on Banksville. Giovanni’s on West Lib.

  3. Everyone tells me to take the train to dormont. Where do you hop on? I have no idea where this elusive train is in Pittsburgh. Can you get on at the Amtrak station downtown?

    • There are three T stations downtown, one at Wood Street and Liberty Avenue, Steel Plaza, and First Avenue Station. Hop on the outbound Red Line and get off at Potomac Station. Then you’re in Dormont.
