    Best gluten free cafe in PGH by far. Love everything, from homemade gf pasta to homemade breads and most beautiful pastries. The owners are so kind and helpful. Love this cafe. Never had a problem with gluten contamination

    Wow! What a wonderful find. Thank you Find Me Gluten Free for telling me about this gem. Everything we ate was incredible. My non celiac fiance even checked the menu as we were eating because he couldn't believe it was gluten free. It most certainly was as I had no reaction. Can't wait to go back!

    A small place, but has more GF then most super markets. Different lunches every week and the best pasta I have ever had. Must try the cupcakes and biscotti. A must try, they even have tiramisu.

    My friend really liked the cupcakes but I'm allergic to gluten and eggs and they don't have any sweets egg free. The chef was nice enough to make me gnocchi for lunch 😊

    This place is absolutely Ah-mazing! My husband and I both tried the fresh GF pasta and we both agreed that it is by far the BEST pasta (gluten and non-gluten) that we've ever had!! We are staying in Pittsburgh for 5 days and we plan to visit this spot daily!

    More items are gf than not. They can also do dairy free if you ask. Get some of the homemade gf pasta.... every gluten eater in my house that always complains about the gf pasta I bring home said it was the best pasta they'd ever had.

    This is THE BEST gluten free bakery and cafe in Pittsburgh metro area. The quality is easily better than many of the most top quality gluten free products I've enjoyed at restaurants, cafes and bakeries across the country. Many of the items are so delicious that I often have to double and triple check whether or not they are in fact gluten free. The constantly changing weekly menus for cafe lunch items are posted at the beginning of the week and many times I find myself planning my weekly travels around what's being served on any given day. Top recommendations would have to be the GF Pirogies, Veggies And Pasta, chocolate cake with raspberry layers, mocha brownies, large soft pretzels, cheese bread, chocolate and farmer's cheese mousse and even the dog biscuits have seemed to be a hit. If you're passing through or live in the area and you are gluten free, or not, cafe chocolate is a must.

    How can anyone give this place a less then 5 stars? Who else has as many many GF items as Cafe Chocolade? Who else has 25 + pastas, lunch, quiche, 20 plus sweets every day and 25 flavors of macarons and they make pierogi, ravioli, tortillas, crepes who does this in the Pittsburgh area!! This place is a gem!

    Tiffany I was there when you had your pretzel and I told you how wonderful it was, I read what you wrote and they did have 19 different hand made filled chocolates, the chocolate mousse cake, the chocolate and vanilla chocolate chip cupcakes, the chocolate pistachio mini tarte, the milk chocolate cheesecake, the 6 different chocolate macarons, the chocolate white chocolate dried cherry biscotti, the chocolate chocolate chip biscotti, the pistachio milk chocolate biscotti, the apricot and chocolate chip biscotti, and the chocolate chip cookie was not enough chocolate for you. Out of the 22 trays I had on display that's 50%. Things like my pierogies, tortillas, crepes, apple strudel, quiche, lemon meringue cake, farmers cheese mousse, fruit tarte, 14 different pastas, lunch specials crab cakes and baked salmon of course their is not chocolate. About the pretzel yes be it GF or regular a pretzel is bread, and who else makes GF soft pretzels anyway? About the name when you go to Giant Eagle do you see eagles?

    Not terribly impressed, for a place with chocolate in the name they did not have much chocolate stuff available. Tried a soft pretzel, it was dry and basically just bread.

    This is by far the best gluten free restaurant/bakery in Pittsburgh!!! Unlike others in the city, the pastries have flavor instead of too much sugar to mask the flavorless products!!! We tried the quesadilla and salmon, not only was it a great gf meal, but one of the best meals I've eaten out!! Keep up the great work! Wonderful hidden gem

    The food is excellent but the menu is confusing. They need to hire out someone to make it logical. I ordered a hamburger and all of their croutons are gf but the bun was not which I found out half way through eating it. The owner/ chef has a terrible attitude. He made me feel awful for not ordering a gf bun. There are no signs for if you should sit and order or go to the counter so we sat and no one came so we went to the counter and got eye rolls and told the chef was too busy...THEN a woman came to our table. Definitely do not take children. all glass table tops and they treat you like crap. I have celiac and so do my children so our options are limited. We went for my sons birthday. Will Not go back. Even the most tasty food isn't worth it.

    The best gluten free I have had in the Pittsburgh area. No GF taste of fell. Not heavy or grainy like most places. The pasta, bread and all the pastries if you gave them to a gluten person they would not know it is a gluten free item. The quiche is the best I have ever had and the macarons rock!!!

    I've been to Café Chocolade and I do enjoy many of their GF baked items. They are all very flavorful. That being said, I have to believe that all of these 5-star reviews are bogus. The reviews have the same themes in them ("Great parking," "I live in Moon and used to go to the East Side," etc) but what made it certain for me is this: I simply cannot believe that so many people in Pittsburgh choose the incorrect "there" when speaking of THEIR products! This makes me sad too, because I believe the food is good and of quality and the owner seems nice. But the parking is nothing fancy (about 5 spots only) and the place is tiny and off the beaten path.

    This is the best place in Pittsburgh, I used to go to the East Side not any more. This place is so much closer and much better. There is always something new, so clean and fresh. I love there multi grain bread, I have given it to some of my not GF friends and they did not know it was GF. It is really that good!! I love there pastas and there lunches they have every day, great! It is a small place but very comfy. They have out door back yard garden seating when weather will let you. Its very nice out back. Then they have a full service day spa up stairs do not miss that. I real gem in the Burgh.

    This place is small, clean but amazing!!!!! They had run out of there daily special, but I was able to get a tomato penne pasta with veggies and a salad with not too much of a wait. It was amazing. I used to go to the east side for years, but have been coming here for around 6 months and everything is sooooo much better and not dry or starchy, I really recommend this place. There candies, pastries, pizza, pasta, bread, rolls are truly the best in the Burgh.

    If you want Gourmet GF pastries this is the place, everything is fantastic. They always have different items and everything I have had is wonderful. There bread is the best you will find and there daily GF lunches a must try. I had a GF crab cake sandwich last Saturday at the Robinson Autumn festival, its nice to be able to get GF items at places like that. You must try this place it is really the Best Gluten Free in Pittsburgh. Try them and you will see why they are the Best. Its nice not having to drive to the east side any more.

    Been going here for two years now and just love the place, I can not say enough good things about this small and very cute place. Everything is excellent. I used to go to the place in the east side, was a nice place but Cafe Chocolade is really better, and I do not have to drive and look for parking. I can call ahead and have my goodies and dinner ready for pick up on the drive home. All the pastries are really the best in the Burgh. There bread is fantastic. There GF meals are always fresh and outstanding. They keep making new items and more of them. Its always fun to go in and see what they have new. Now they even have pasta and its wonderful. You must try this place, I know you will love it, and upstairs they have a full service day spa with GF products. A real one stop shop. I see why they are the Best GF in Pittsburgh and The Best Day Spa as well.

    This last review putting Café Chocolade down is someone that has not been there or is a jealous client from the East side GF bakery, Café Chocolade does a wonderful job. I have been going there for two years now, I used to go the East side but did not like the drive and the selection. Café Chocolade has veeeeery great quality, there products are Gourmet, not just GF. There lunches are wonderful, you can tell the Chef and Owner loves what he does. Everything is really the best in the Burgh, I guess that is why they keep winning, I did call PGH mag. And find me GF and they did win they did not pay for there winnings. You need to check this place out, clean, professional, quality and they love what they do, and you get service here. A+

    I took the last recommendation of the last review and I did look into this place, I took a look at the wed-site and it is nice. I saw they have been open 2 ½ years and have won more then any other restaurant or bakery in the Pittsburgh area. I thought it was a bit too much so I called around to each of the places they won and well to my surprise they are all true. This place does not advertize in any of the places and does not pay for anything; they just won everything by Editors pick or by reader’s poll. So this place is doing a great job. So I went in to try a few things, I need Gluten Free and my wife does not. I bought just a few things the first time and some items for my wife. This place is really that good. The croissants my wife had she said they are the best she has had in Pittsburgh, the macroons are better then Paris 66, the pistachio and hazelnut mousse cake was the boom, and the Grand Marnier walnut bites fantastic all 3 GF, I as well had there Shrimp Tamales GF lunch that day, WONDERFUL!. I had been going to the Squirrel Hill GF Bakery for years, but hated the drive over there, this places is great. I no longer need to travel, this places is in my bake yard. No more going to the east side, nice. Over the weekend I got a loaf of the GF bread and the best. You do not need to toast it or freeze it you can just slice it and it’s the best. The place is so clean, I have seen other bakeries and restaurants and I understand why the have a door to the kitchen, this place does not have flour or dust anywhere. I think it’s the cleanest place I have seen. I asked the owner and really helpful person about the GF items, he said he does every GF item in a separate room, separate containers everything is sealed, sanitized each time before use, separate mixer, scale, baked separately all care is looked into. He really knows what he is doing, after 31 years and 7 countries I should hope so, and teaching in two. They as well have a full service day spa up stairs and they have a number of GF hair and skin items and the owner and employees really understand about GF. Outside seating and private parking, you really need to check out this place. They are the best for a reason!!!

    Went in for my first time, I have been to all the Gluten Free places in the Pittsburgh area. Well this is really the best in the Burgh. I read about them in the Pittsburgh Magazine a few times, But was not sure. So I finally went in, well worth going in. Even if you have to travel, this is the place. They make a wonderful lunch during the week, there bread is fantastic, has a great crust and lasts for days. The best I have ever had, I as well bought a chocolate cake pop, Grand Marnier mini tarte, espresso chocolate cream cheese Kahlua brownie and the best chocolate chocolate chip mascarpone cupcake I have ever had. Everything was fantastic, I can not wait to go back. Also they have the best Day Spa in Pittsburgh upstairs. Private parking truly the best and a one stop shop!!!!!!
