Cafe Scene & Unique Shopping!

by HooptheWorld

Will arrive Thursday and have a few days here...could you please tell me where the cool, good cafes are located? Also, what are the area(s)with the most unique, quirky stores? What are the most interesting parts of town to see? I have researched some, and the Southside seems to be the fave of locals. What are the best cafes there? Thanks...and , maybe, I'll see you sipping coffee ! (Look for me with my hula hoop, of course)

Yes, I think the Southside is the great place to start. Lot's of interesting shops and great places to eat. I like Cafe Allegro and le Pommier. Fatheads has burgers and a very large selection of beers. Lots of coffee shops, including the Tuscany Cafe and the Beehive.

I think you'll also like the Strip district (no, not THAT kind of strip), especially on Saturday mornings, if you're in the market for interesting shops and great wholesale food places open to the public. In the strip, I like Kaya for food. Eleven has high-end food and a very cool bar. There's Mullaney's Harp and Fiddle and The Church Brew Works. See
for more ideas.

People used to love Primanti Brothers in the strip...but lately I've read that it's not as good as it used to be. (This is a "diner" where they pile your coleslaw and french fries IN your sandwhich.)

I love my city, and hope you enjoy it, but the weather lately....grrrrr. Hope it's at least sunny for you.

The southside and the Strip district are both interesting neighborhoods with some good restaurants and bars. While you are on the south side, take the incline up Mount Washington for a great view of the city.

For some interesting sights, also visit Oakland, the neighborhood which has the city's two major universities (University of Pittsburgh ("Pitt") and Carnegie-Mellon University). On the Pitt campus, the Cathedral of Learning tower is one of the more unique buildings in the US and Heinz Chapel is a prettly little church. The Carnegie Museums are also worth visiting.

If you like modern art, visit the Andy Warhol museum on Pittsburgh's North Side.

Feel free to visit our Pittsburgh pages for more tips and photos.

On a differnt note, our Vancouver page has a good photo of our daughter hooping!

In addition to the places previously mentioned, one area I've enjoyed on my last three or four visits to Pittsburgh is Market Square. This spot used to have a really bad reputation, but seems to be a success story for urban renewal. Set on a quiet tree-lined square smack in the middle of downtown, this unique place feels like it's from a European city. There are several cafes here including Buon Giorno Cafe, Nicholas Coffee Company, and the Jenny Lee Bakery. There are a few bars/restaurants such as a Primanti's, the Original Oyster House, Market Street Ale House, and several others. The area has a few small shops, but none that I can name off the top of my head.

Just down Market Street a half block, you'll find PPG Place and the PPG Place Plaza. This are has a great fountain that kids play in all summer and it's turned into an ice skating rink in the winter.

The other great thing about the square is its proximity to other central Pittsburgh destinations such as the theater district and Point State Park.

Travel Tips for Pittsburgh

Sorry for our rudeness.

by ctoocheck

Sorry about the rudness you may receive upon asking directions. But sometimes we might not quite know exact directions ourselves, or the directions would be severly long and complicated.
Driving can be trickey, at least, what with all the hills and rivers n'at. I'd suggest getting a map if you're gonna do extensive driveing, or at least some mapquest maps. Busses are ok, you cannot hail taxis (you must call for them)
Downtown is pretty clean and safe. If you get mugged there, the are like 600 old ladies who shop there all the time that have a one-up on you. The cultural district is likely safer at night as it has more stuff goin on. Oakland may be a bit dangerous. At least travel with someone else. Around Pitt and CMU, there are Police phones everwhere.
Wilkinsburg, Braddock, The Hill: ugly places to aviod being alone outside, ever.
Pittsburghers love the city (for whatever reason) and will help if we can without much work (haha). Or else we'll just blow you off somehow. Sorry.

This building is part of the University of Pittsburgh. It sits at 230 South Bouquet Street between the Hillman Library and Mervis Hall. Carnegie Museum is within walking distance of this location, as well as the Cathedral of Learning.

Wesley Posvar Hall is the largest classroom building on the campus of The University of Pittsburgh (74,695 sq. ft.). It houses the School of Education, the Social Science Departments, the University Center for International Studies, Undergraduate College of Business and Administration and the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs.

It is located on the former site of Old Forbes Field, home to the Pittsburgh Pirates. A portion of Forbes Field wall remains nearby.

Die Hard Fans

by cjg1

Pittsburgh is full of die hard Penguins, Steelers and Pirates fans. We were in town during the Pitt/Villanova game and a Penguins/Rangers game. The fans are outrageously into their teams. Just observing the fans watching the Pitt game on TV was interesting. I hadn't heard that much screaming and cursing'd think we were in Red Sox teritory (lol).

Whitewater boating

by flora1

The Youghiogheny River has exciting whitewater boating for all experience levels. Only sturdily constructed rubber rafts, kayaks and closed-deck canoes may be used in the river. River levels can change the difficulty of rapids. The are both independent and guided trips. Ohiopyle is a Pennsylvania State Park and offeres many other activities such as hiking, camping, bicycling, horseback riding, fishing, firearms and hunting, and various winter sports. You can bring your own, or rent. Guided trips provide equipment.

The Meadows Racetrack

by Helmet12345

A typical US harness racetrack - very old, very strange and very wagering-like.

You gotta go there to see some typical americans placing there bets on horseraces either by tv or directly on the track.

I only saw one track in Europe so far, but this was an experience as it seems to be there are only "low-class" americans there and you get a real glimpse of the american life!

From Pittsburgh:
Through Fort Pitt Tunnels, Parkway West (I-279) onto Interstate 79 South, off at Meadow Lands (exit 41), turn left, Racetrack Road. Approximately a 25 minute drive.

From Washington, PA:
Interstate 79 North, off at exit 41 Racetrack Road, Turn right off exit ramp. Approximately a 5 minute drive.

From Wheeling, West Virginia:
Interstate 70 East to Interstate 79 North, off at Meadow Lands (exit 41), Racetrack Road. Approximately a 25 minute drive.
