There’s soon going to be a new Prantl’s Bakery location, this time in Westmoreland County.
The beloved Pittsburgh bake shop, known for their “greatest in America” Burnt Almond Torte Cake, is opening a location in North Huntingdon.
Owner Joe Cugliari, who bought the bakery in October, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that North Huntingdon was a natural place to expand the business.
“North Huntingdon has been growing for the past 10 years and continues to do so,” Cugliari said. “The other factor is that this pandemic is making people stay closer to home and buy more things in their own area.”
The Prantl’s North Huntingdon shop will be located at the corner of Route 30 at Robbins Station Road, and will join three other locations of the popular bakery, including Market Square, Greensburg and the original location in Shadyside.
Cugliari told the Tribune-Review that he hopes to have the North Huntingdon location open before Christmas.
Prantl’s recently expanded their Burnt Almond Torte offerings to include a popular Pina Colada flavor (made with yellow cake, crushed pineapple filling, iced with white buttercream and topped with toasted coconut), in addition to Chocolate Burnt Almond Torte, Torte Bars, Walking Tortes, and the original Burnt Almond flavor.
The bakery also offer Thumbprints, made by the original baker from Kaufmann’s Arcade Bakery, where they gained popularity in Pittsburgh during the holiday season.
Other menu items at Prantl’s Bakery include pepperoni rolls, pies, streudels, cakes, breads, pastries, and trays of Christmas cookies.
