PITTSBURGH, PA (May 23, 2022) – Commonplace Coffee has partnered with Driftwood Oven, who will serve as the primary provider of pastries and food for all of their Pittsburgh cafe locations beginning Tuesday, May 24. This partnership marks a significant expansion of the wholesale pastry program for Lawrenceville-based Driftwood Oven. While many of the menu items will mimic Commonplace’s previous lineup, there will also be brand new offerings, as well as Commonplace-exclusive items, and everything will have a fresh Driftwood Oven twist. A full list of Pittsburgh-based Commonplace Coffee locations, where you can enjoy these new pastry and food items, is available online at

“This collaboration, like many partnerships or relationships that we find ourselves in, grew organically from being in the food service industry. Driftwood was looking to expand its bakery program, and as we started to discuss options with Commonplace, it became apparent that the timing was perfect,” said Neil Blazin, Owner and Co-Founder of Driftwood Oven. “What makes me most excited is that the synergy between Commonplace and Driftwood is great. Both of these companies have a lot of the same core values, and to bring those values together, in a partnership where we both benefit, is incredible. You never know where life will take you, and I couldn’t have predicted that this would be a project we took on in 2022. But I’m sure glad we did!”

Some of the exciting new items that guests can look forward to include classic and chocolate croissants, a turkey club sandwich, mixed greens salad, and the Commonplace roll – a twist on the classic cinnamon roll, featuring a Commonplace Coffee-infused glaze. Most food and pastry items will feature sourdough, a defining aspect of the Driftwood Oven bakery that is as delicious as it is unique.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Driftwood Oven and offer their incredible lineup of food and pastry items at all of our Pittsburgh cafes,” said Robert Chaffin, Commonplace’s Director of Operations. “This is a big shift for us, but working with the team at Driftwood Oven over the past few months to create a menu that we’re both excited about has been an awesome experience. They’re a dedicated and talented group of bakers, and I know our guests are going to love what they’ve created for our shops.”
