Dozen Bake Shop and Bella Christie Food Trucks Hit the Streets
Keeping with this year's love of mobile food, Dozen Bake Shop's delectable, in-demand treats are currently available on-the-go. The hot spot's roving truck can be found in a number of settings, including Food Truck Fridays in the Strip and special local events. Even better, 'Burghers can book the truck for their epic parties. (Who can resist a homemade cupcake, anyway?)
And over in Aspinwall, Bella Christie & Lil Z's Sweet Boutique is still celebrating the success of its food-truck Kickstarter campaign. Keep an eye out for the truck rolling down the street — its goodies beat Good Humor any day.

Downtown Eatery Offers Fresh, Simple Breakfast and Lunch Options
Bluebird Kitchen opened with an almost instant following. Who could resist housemade goodies, like the chocolate-cherry scones — sweet with a salty twist? Or salads featuring fresh, in-season produce, like heirloom tomatoes and avocados? Tucked off Forbes near Market Square, the small shop lures folks in search of breakfast and/or lunch fare, and boasts about the local purveyors supplying ingredients, such as Penn’s Corner. This kind of spot works well downtown — prompt service and tasty, reasonably priced grub.

Sincerely Yogurt Teams Up With Gluuteny
Eat Street could go on and on about the go-to fall flavors — pumpkin, apple and the list goes on. So we were incredibly stoked when we found out that Sincerely Yogurt, a favorite local yogurt shop, was working with beloved Squirrel Hill bakery Gluuteny this season.
As if the frozen yogurt weren't tasty enough on its own (especially when piled high with toppings like fruit and granola), the clever staffers at Sincerely Yogurt will be popping Gluuteny's gluten-free pumpkin loaves in the oven and offering piping-hot slices of the treat to customers hoping to stuff their cups to the brim.
