I believe that currently Pittsburgh only has a mediocre pizza shop, Milky Way
They also have Rita's Ices and a bakery in the Giant Eagle grocery store.

The city of East Cleveland is like Harlem-you don't want to go there  ;)

In all seriousness, I'd be happy to give a rundown on Cleveland's kosher restaurants if you'd like, they're all located about half an hour east of Cleveland.

Thanks Dan for the quick reply!!
And you're right, I really don't want to go there, considering the reason , but I'm already driving in and out from Queens to Pittsburgh tomorrow for a shiva call, and we really don't have time for over another hour of driving.

There may also be an upscale bakery in Pittsburgh called Sweet Tammy's, but it's pretty expensive and I can't imagine that it will survive in a jewish community famous for not eating out or supporting its local kosher establishments.

Since I went to high school there the city has gone through Yacovs, King David, Platters, Golden China, Simple Treat, Rolladin, Sari's, Pinati's, Aaron and Ari's, and Cafe M.
Did I forget any  :o

True, but it can't compare to a full service bakery.  They don't even have doughnuts!

I remember as a kid they used to have a great ice cream parlor-Leibel's, but that too is long gone.

At 30 cents a donut I'm not sure what you expected?
The prices were amazing!
