Celebrate Winter with These Seasonal Treats in Pittsburgh

A Story By

The holidays are here…and Santa’s not the only one who will be enjoying cookies and sweets! Pittsburgh is full of seasonal treats you have to get your hands on this month. From festive cocktails, decadent cakes, classic holiday desserts and seasonal beers… what’s not to love? Hit up these hot spots this winter to try out these mouthwatering treats for yourself. Forget the partridge in the pear tree, my true love better get me some of these goodies!

Don’t see your favorite seasonal treats in Pittsburgh included on our list? Send us a DM on Instagram and we’ll get it added ASAP.

Do you hear what I hear? These seasonal cocktails are calling your name! Stop by Dough Bar in South Side for some jingle juice, an espresso martini or some delicious red sangria (just to name a few)! Celebrate the season with something special… they’re only around once a year! Oh, and you’d be foolish not to grab some pizza while you’re there.
