First time, not my last time.

BUSY. No where to sit, barely anywhere to stand even. Got some little deli fridge items like hummus and cashew cheese, as well as a breakfast sandwich that kicked ass. Delightful and friendly staff.

So many options!

Had some great sandwiches (seitan melt and breakfast at sandwich) at allegro bakery and was surprised at how filling they were! I wanted to try all the breads and baked goods, would go back if in Pittsburgh again. Also really enjoyed the chocolate chip tahini pistachio cookie, thick crunchy cookie with just enough chew. Best vegan cookie we tried in Pittsburg so far.

Pros: Many options, Good tasting food

Cons: Expensive

All vegan bakery

I was impressed with all of the delicious offerings at Allegro! It was hard to decide what to get because everything looked so good! Loved the breakfast sandwich, croissants and cinnamon rolls.

Frequent breakfast

Allegro Hearth is so good I end up there at least a few times a month. The pastries are to die for, their breakfast sandwiches slap, their soups are great, everything they offer has been truly incredible. This place really proves that pastries can be made fully vegan without any loss of flavor, and arguably better than non vegan versions.

Also do yourself a favor and try the cinnamon bun.

Pros: Everything

Everything is amazing!!

I had the seitan melt and it was the best sandwich I've ever had. I've been a vegan for 37 years. I'm originally from Pittsburgh area and I can't wait to go back again when I visit in a few weeks. Everything about the sandwich was perfect, the shears, the vegan cheese, the seitan was the best I've ever had as well, the pickles. The cinnamon roll was fabulous. It was so big, it took me all day to eat and I shared bites with family.The lamination in the roll and in the blueberry danish was unbelievable. The cinnamon roll was caramelized on the bottom which made it even dreamier. I also had a chocolate chunk cookie that was amazing.

Pros: Seitan, Bread, Cinnamon roll

Cons: It was perfect. I can't wait to go back.

Delicious & Welcoming

I stopped here twice on my weekend trip to pgh and I am so glad that I did. The staff is so friendly and the food is just delicious. The staff recommends arriving early (they open at 8am) and/or placing your order online when they open so that you can reserve the best baked goods, since they sell out quickly on the weekends. I loved everything I tried (chocolate cake, cinnamon roll, chocolate filled cruffin, and the raspberry danish) and I can’t wait to go back!

Pros: All vegan, Friendly staff, Inviting atmosphere

No seating, but otherwise nice

I thought it was a restaurant since I saw they have salads and sandwiches, but alas. Still, the staff were very kind and I went away with a lovely salad, generous on the avocado.

Cons: No seating

Love this Bakery

So happy to find a fully vegan bakery that has everything you’d expect to find in a bakery. The bread here is great, and I always get some of their hummus or cashew cheese to have with it. The sandwiches are also delicious, and some of them have good amounts of protein too (seitan melt or tofu).

The pastries are also amazing. Even my girlfriend’s non-vegan family loved the cinnamon rolls here, and always asks me to grab one (or many) if I’m heading to Allegro.

Great bakery, so glad they switched to fully vegan!

Much longer hours needed

Pittsburgh is not an easy place to be vegan. In general, I would describe the food culture here as vegan-hostile and while a few, not many, but a few places offer vegan options, there are very, very few fully vegan restaurants left. Allegro Hearth is one.

The owner of Allegro Hearth also owned--and closed--the spectacular B-52 restaurant in the Lawrenceville neighborhood. And this place is by no means a substitute. It's primarily a bakery with an extremely limited offering if you're looking for a meal.

It shouldn't be too much to ask for lunch at 3:00 in the afternoon. But they cut off sandwich orders at 2:00 pm, despite apparently having pickup available until 4:00 pm. Why? They just do. It feels cruel.

Pros: great food

Cons: far too limited hours, take out only, limited options

I would kill for these pastries in my city

We’re in town to see a musical, and I was so charmed to find that not only is this a vegan bakery/deli but, as it seems by the addition of rugelach and hamentaschen, a vegan *Jewish* bakery/deli. The rugelach was some of the best I’ve ever had, and the pain au chocolat (I’m being pedantic, in the US it’s a chocolate croissant) was amazing. Their breakfast sandwich was also to die for. I would eat here so often if I didn’t live 6 hours away.

All around amazing!

Went for sandwiches, left with those and many delicious baked goods, both were so good! The shredded seitan was one of the best sandwiches I think I’ve ever had. Be sure to try a danish. Pittsburgh is lucky to have Allegro. Thank you to the lovely staff!

Best bakery ever!

Everything here is amazing! The cinnamon rolls are probably the best thing I’ve ever eaten! I also love the baguettes, cookies, and focaccia slices, but you can’t go wrong with whatever you order!

Pros: Friendly staff , Fresh product, Good portions

Stopped in while traveling through town. What a cute little place. Lots of breads and baked goods to choose from. I ordered an avocado sandwich on the recommendation of the person at the counter. It was delicious! I will definitely be visiting again when I’m back to the area so I can try the rest of the menu.
