FAQ


Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where do I park?  While parking can sometimes be a little difficult to find, it is free!  Parking along both sides of the building is fine as well as behind the building by the walking/bike trail.  Although it looks like your car will instantly get towed if it's parked directly in front of our building--we assure you, parking there is absolutely fine!  So please utilize those spaces, it is only marked the way it is so people who work in the area do not park there all day.  Please do no park in our neighbors lots (Graceland Auto, B & L) as those lots are for their customers.
  • Where are you located?  We are located in Chateau, Pittsburgh's least populated neighborhood.  Although not many people reside in Chateau quite a lot of people work here.  Chateau is in Pittsburgh's Northside, close to Rivers Casino, Heinz Field, and PNC Park.  You can reach us by taking the Chateau St. exit off of the West End bridge and looping around to Beaver.  Make a right onto North Franklin and we are at the third intersection.  Coming from Route 65 (Ohio River Boulevard), take the Beaver Ave. exit and make a right onto North Franklin.
  • Do you have online ordering?  Yes we do!  Links are on our website and Facebook or go to

    https://www.lavutogo.com/chateaucc
    
  • Can I call in my order?  Yes you can!  Call us at 412-80-CAKES (22537) and we will be happy to take your order and have it ready for you.

  • Do you cater?  Yes, we cater!  You can host your event at the cafe and let us take care of everything from plates and napkins to food and decorations, or we can bring our food to you.  We have a breakfast and lunch catering menu online, however those are just the beginning of the things we offer.  Call and ask for Kerén to schedule a consultation regarding your next event!

  • Are you open on weekends/holidays?   Currently we are not open on major holidays or weekends.  We will begin being open on Saturday mornings for breakfast/brunch in June.

What kind of employee would fit at Chateau Café & Cakery?

The kind that are so bright, people mistake you for the Greek god Apollo. You multitask so well, you're reading this while juggling. You're so self-motivated, your application is half-submitted and you haven't even gotten to the requirements yet. You love detail, you have a mild case of OCD, you organize like a Trapper Keeper and switch gears like Steve McQueen at Le Mans. You have a passion for food, fun, and caffeine; are discrete like Bond, professional like Jobs, with the kind of personality that means you understand why a job description should be fun to read.

This is a perfect position for someone with a creative mind who knows how to work fast and smart. You know where the rabbit holes are and you're good about avoiding them early on. You know which details make all the difference, and which ones don't make any difference. You know the difference between spending time wisely and wasting time [avoiding the latter like the plague].
