We have heard great things about the Burnt Almond Torte, so we decided to give it a try while visiting a friend in Shadyside.

Best in Pittsburgh - hands down! I've been going there since I was a kid and wouldn't go to any other bakery in the city. I am unable to celebrate a birthday without a Prantl's cake - it just wouldn't be a HAPPY birthday without Prantl's!!

No longer the family business it used to be, but still a very good bakery.
If you have your heart set on a favorite cake decoration, check with them carefully. They sometimes (apparently)don't have the same decorator and what you ordered before and loved may not be available or may not be recognized by the name you ordered it by before .
Coconut snowballs are wonderful.

Pros: the best birthday cakes; great burnt almond tortes

Cons: prices have gone up; difficult to park

Their burnt almond tort is absolutely delicious, as are their little star-shaped butter cookies. BUT, things here are so expensive now! The bakery changed ownership and the prices have really skyrocketed. The little star-shaped cookies are not cheap for little cookies, especially because it would be easy to eat a half dozen alone! I really don't recommend their "normal" cookies, such as chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, etc - I have found them to be quite disappointing. Their cupcakes are good, but the two things that are truly spectacular are the burnt almond tort and butter star cookies.

Pros: Delicious Items, Location

Cons: Location (parking on Walnut is awful!), Price

This was the hit of the wedding at the Hyeholde. We have never seen a prettier wedding cake that tasted that good. It was so good tasting that many people went back for a seond (and third) piece. When was the last time you saw that at a wedding???

i wouldn't recommend going in here if you are on a diet! everything looks and smells AMAZING! their little butter cookies that are usually in the shape of stars are to die for! it's nice to go to a GREAT bakery and pay less than you'd pay at the baked goods section of a supermarket

Prantl's Bakery is a one of kind, world class bakery. I have traveled the streets of New York City looking for a treat that matches their fresh made almond macaroons, and I have yet to find anything to compare. Prantl's is clean, friendly, well-priced, and serves the best homemade bread I've ever had. If you stop by around 8 am it is usually still hot. This family has devoted their time to bringing a smile to this girl's face.

Some specialties include: Burnt Almond Torte, Chocolate Sour Cream Cake, and mini-pastries of at least ten varieties (rum balls, coconut balls, petitefores). PRANTL'S SHOULD NOT BE MISSED!

This is my utmost favorite place to go for delicious goodies.
Everything I have had is freshly baked and good to the last crumb.
This is a family owned business and the employees are friendly and the service is good.

This is one of my favorite places on earth! What a great bakery! The staff is friendly, service is fast and the products are wonderful! The lady locks will make you cry and their famous almond torte can make a man do household chores for you! Their decorated shortbread cookies are a must! Another great Pittsburgh treat!

This is the bakery where my mom's family went when I was a kid. Years later we always get fresh baked bread when we are in Shady Side from Prantl's (I think it was the potato bread that my grandma always ordered ooh and the raisin bread, yummy!). The big treat was that you could always pick out your favorite cookie before leaving--what a hard decision. I have never bought anything at Prantl's that wasn't delicious.

PROS: Reasonable prices, everything is delicious
CONS: Parking can be tough in Shady Side
