Easter in Pittsburgh Means the Lincoln Bakery in Bellevue

Religious holidays can prompt all sorts of pilgrimages. On Thursday I made my Easter pilgrimage to the Lincoln Avenue Bakery in Bellevue (543 Lincoln Ave., 412-766-0954) for their world famous Easter Peeps and Gems.

Lincoln Avenue Bakery, Bellevue

I should explain that these peeps are not made of marshmallow and sugar - these are made of delicious cake, butter cream and frosting. A Lincoln Bakery Peep is a thing that must be experienced to appreciate.

Shopping at the Lincoln Bakery is a treat in itself. The place smells awesome and is very much an old-school bakery. After getting a few boxes of peeps and gems we stopped next door at the Muddy Cup for caffeine - it was all good.

Yes, at one time there was another Peep in this box.
No, it did not make it to the blog entry.
