La Gourmandine Bakery Featured in New York Times’ “36 Hours in Pittsburgh”


Pittsburgh, PA – July 21, 2015Exquisite Pittsburgh bakery, La Gourmandine, has earned the distinction of being featured by the New York Times. The must-read publication recently visited Pittsburgh for an in-depth look at area hotspots, from bars to restaurants, hangouts to cultural epicenters.  In the piece, “36 Hours in Pittsburgh,” residents and business owners talk about what makes these places so special.

La Gourmandine is a classic French bakery, nestled amongst the bustling streets of both Mt. Lebanon and Lawrenceville. From two store locations, Fabien and Lisanne Moreau, create authentic French baked goods, such as delicate pastries, danishes, bread and so much more. The New York Times flatteringly cites the vast selection, from apricotines to macarons, saying, “You’ll be spoiled for choice — and will probably spoil your lunch.”

Born and raised in the heart of France, husband-and-wife team Fabien and Lisanne have strong ties to the region. With Lisanne’s mother being from Pittsburgh, the couple soon decided to bring French tradition to Pittsburgh with La Gourmandine Bakery, and the first location opened its doors in 2010.
