Let There Be Cake

I know that things have been quiet lately.  I’ve been working on some logistics and such for moving forward.  Presently, I’ve been working on fulfilling some specialty cake orders.  You can check out the photos over on our photo page.

An End to a Chapter

As of Wednesday, January 4, 2012, Cafe Solstice will be closing its doors in Mt. Lebanon. Thank you to all of our friends, families, and patrons for your support. Keep an eye out for updates, as we look ahead to the future.

Build a Baked Good 3: Butterscotch Coconut Macaroon

Episode three of Build a Baked good is finally here, with Missy’s mother-in-law, Cathy Paulowich, and her desire for something with butterscotch and coconut.  How about a macaroon? Did it work?  Let’s find out…

Build a Baked Good is filmed in front of a live audience at Cafe Solstice in Mt. Lebanon, PA.

Have something you want made?  Want to help make it on the show?  Maybe you want to be a part of the live audience that gets a chance to sample the experiment?  Send any questions or comments to info@cafesolstice.net, and stay tuned to www.CafeSolstice.com, follow them on Twitter, of follow on Facebook!


Did You Know We Do Vegan Baked Goods?

That’s right.  In addition to our buttery, milk and egg laden baked goods, we also offer a variety of vegan baked goods.  From our muffins to our cookies and cupcakes, we can substitute in an egg substitute, soy milk, and butter flavored Crisco.  We’ve been testing them out, and we think we’ve got them down.  Some of our friends and family didn’t even notice the difference when we had them do a taste test!

If you’re looking for a good place to get your vegetarian or lactose intolerant co-worker some yummy baked goods, we’d love for you to stop in.  Are you that vegetarian or lactose intolerant co-worker?  We’d love to see you too!  In addition to our daily baked goods, we also offer baked goods to order.

Build a Baked Good 2: Chocolate Rizztel Balls

Episode two of Build a Baked good has finally arrived!  This episode, we welcome Zach Rizza (or the Wrestling Mayhem Show) to make an experiment involving pretzels, peanut butter, and chocolate!  We step you through making each part of this delicious treat.  How did it turn out?  Check it out.

Breakfast With Santa 12/17

We will be having Breakfast with Santa this Saturday (12/17) from 10:00-12:00.  Bring the kids down for some breakfast (or lunch) and get a photo with Santa!  Santa will also be sharing some of his cookies with the kids to make it an extra special morning! (We will have non-dairy, vegan cookies for those tykes with dietary restrictions, too.)

Please also remember that we are accepting donations of toys and tote bags of non-perishable food items for those in need this holiday season.

Official Christmas Hours

We know, it’s the holidays.  And, with our family being from Western New York, we’re going to be taking some time to celebrate the holidays back home.  Our holiday hours are as follows:

Friday, December 23, 2011 – CLOSED

Saturday, December 24, 2011 – CLOSED

We will be back up and running on Monday, December 26th!

 

Christmas Baked Goods

In addition to our home-cooked food, we also do fresh, homemade baked goods.  Why go with those boxed brand cookies, when you can have some delicious, homemade cookies instead?

We offer regular cookies (made like Grandma used to make them with all the “bad” stuff like milk and eggs), and we also offer dairy free and vegan options.  You can check out our baked good options here.

You can order your cookies (or other baked goods) by December 19th to have them ready in time for Christmas!

Give us a call at (412) 343-6580 for more details

We Need Your Support

As we mentioned previously, we are working with a few local charities this holiday season. In an effort to help those in need, we are accepting donations here in the cafe (Mt. Lebanon – on the Terrace Level of the Executive Building across from Rolliers).  We even decked out our donation boxes in festive holiday wrapping.  Now, all we need is your donations.  Stop in, grab a cup of coffee or a bite to eat, and drop off a toy or a tote bag of non-perishable food items.  Help us make someone’s holiday a little brighter this season. We want to see these boxes overflowing with donations!
