Pittsburgh’s northside has a rich history, much like the cupcake that bears its name. At the Priory Fine Pastries, the Northsider is a tribute to D. L. Clark and the Clark Bar Company. This yellow cupcake has a peanut-butter-cream frosting on top and in its center. The cupcake is finished with a light chocolate drizzle and some Clark Bar pieces. It is scrumptious! With the nutty notes in the cupcake, the hazelnut coffee I ordered to accompany my dessert was a perfect pairing.
After reading deeper into the history of the Clark Bar, Clark bars were produced and made popular through their company which was located in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, now a part of Pittsburgh’s northside.
This was my first time eating in the bakery shop located on East Ohio Street, just a short walk from Bistro To Go. I had however, ordered desserts for the Summer Luau Wine Exchange back in August and they were a huge hit as well.
