The Taste of Brookline event is back and you can get discounted tickets, starting today.

With a grand opening this past October, Le Cupcake Shoppe on Capital Avenue is the only mini cupcakery in Pittsburgh. The dollhouse-like shop, located next to Fiori’s Pizza, even feels like a cupcake when you walk inside. Charming details from the trim to the counter tops and cupcake décor whisk you off to a childlike state. “Everyone’s been so welcoming. People in this neighborhood have such an appreciation for small businesses,” owner Alexandra Hagen said. “Honestly who wouldn’t want to be next to Fiori’s?
