Walk into Eadie’s Kitchen and Market at 500 Grant Street in downtown Pittsburgh early in the morning, and you’ll see attorneys, CPAs, business executive and the like, ordering their breakfasts. The pace is fast and furious- these are people with a schedule to keep after all, and they want their food to go, in a hurry. Luckily, the staff at Eadie’s Kitchen can keep up; they’re used to working in a hurried pace to accommodate breakfast-hungry patrons.
Breakfast is a no-brainer. Order a large pastry, homemade coffee cakes, cinnamon rolls, and other pastries, or eggs any style. If you want pancakes, or French toast, they have that too. Lunch is also available at Eadie’s Kitchen and Market. The menu for the week’s food is posted on-line for added convenience (eadiescatering.com, then go to “view the market’s weekly specials” section). For example, the week of March 15th through the 19th, you can look forward to Rotisserie Chicken, Philly Cheese Steaks, Scalloped Potatoes, Cheeseburgers, Greek Feta Salads Fish Sandwiches, and Tuna Casserole (as Lenten specials). Soup specials include, Crab Bisque, Chicken Noodle, Cream of Mushroom, Wedding, and Tomato Basil.
The food at Eadie’s Kitchen is good, but there’s a secret about this restaurant that many people don’t know- they make the best cakes in the city! I consider myself to be a bit of a pastry connoisseur, and have tried cakes from almost every bakery and pastry shop around- let me tell you, nothing comes close to these delectable desserts. The cake is moist and flavorful, and the pastry cream is as light as a feather. Working as a Corporate Chef in the city, I’m responsible for the birthday cakes for our staff and clients. I would consider making them, but why do that when I can purchase such an exceptional product? Our favorite cake is the Strawberry Delight; white cake with white icing, with strawberries and strawberry butter cream in between the layers- amazing! If you’re in the market for a birthday cake, or a cake for any other occasion, give Eadie’s a try!Eadie’s Kitchen and Market eadiescatering.com 500 Grant Street Pittsburgh, PA 15219-2502 (412) 391-3993
