Bakn expanded to Warrendale this week with an extensive menu and cocktails that are sure to fill the seats. 

Bakn's Cocktail Menu highlights include a BLT: Bulleit Bourbon, Lemon and Tonic; A Bacon Martini and a Fountain of Youth. The Fountain of Youth is Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Elderflower Liquor, Lemon, Prosecco and Mint. 

We were fortunate to sample a few different items on the menu. We started with Biscuits and Bacon Slapped Honey Jam. We next tried a Pork Belly Taco. After we had a Bacon Flight. This dish included a Sriracha bacon, Peppered Bacon and Bourbon Glazed. Next, we had two Flatbreads: The Caprese and a Fig and Bleu. Both are amazing. Lastly, we had a spread of Grilled Cheese. One was included on the menu as the regular Grilled Cheese including Jarlsberg and Cheddar. The other two were chef specials including a Fig and Bleu cheese. Another great item on the menu is the pancakes, which they serve all day. 

Bakn in Warrendale is located in the new plaza built off route 19 before Cranberry. The motif is fun and relaxed. There is a large bar as you walk in that sits about 10 that is highlighted with a pink neon pig. The kitchen is open and the floor seats about 50. 

Bakn Warrendale is located at 100 Fowler Road, Warrendale, PA 15086. For more information visit eatbakn.com or call 724-719-2440.
