☕ Coffee Beans for a Cause

Pick up Commonplace Coffee’s new Survivor Blend, with proceeds benefiting Pittsburgh Action Against Rape. PAAR was the first victim service agency in Allegheny County and one of the first rape crisis centers in the nation. They celebrated their 50th anniversary last year.

  • Psst — Commonplace Coffee and The Speckled Egg are celebrating the grand opening of their new collab space in the South Side Works on July 26 with a “free breakfast and coffee for a year” giveaway.

📣 Victory for Grilled Stickies

Locals were mourning when Eat'n Park announced it was taking Grilled Stickies off of its menu. But now, nostalgic yinzers can rejoice because the gooey, griddled, ice-cream-coated cinnamon bread is back, thanks to a partnership with 5 Generation Bakers, known for Jenny Lee Swirl Bread.
