The shop is located just next to the main restaurant in the Strip District and offers a walk-up window for slices and pies to go. In being big fans of the restaurant, you know I had to hit up this spot in the first week it was open.
Colangelo's is one of many spots in Pittsburgh's iconic Strip District that is tucked away and easy to miss. Located right next to popular coffee roaster La Prima, this spot serves up an array of baked goods, sandwiches, pizzas, soups, and more.
But if there is one thing this bakery is known for, it would be their pizza, and that is exactly what I was looking to try on my first visit.
When Choppin' Block BBQ opened in 2018 just a few blocks away from the main walking area, the neighborhood got just that.
The Strip District is often considered to be the most vibrant neighborhood in Pittsburgh, and it doesn't take long after a first visit to understand why. The concentration of restaurants, international markets, vendors, and boutique shops is larger there than anywhere else in the city.
Restaurants and businesses open in this neighborhood all the time, as you would expect, and add into the neighborhood's allure bit by bit- each with their own personal touch.
The Pennsylvania Market officially opened in the Strip District in late 2018 and opted to blast beyond being just another restaurant or shop. Instead, this one offers well over a dozen unique shopping, dining, and drinking options all in one beautiful location.
We are always on the lookout for unique places to shop in Pittsburgh, and the seasonal Neighborhood Flea marketplace is definitely one such spot. With local vendors selling vintage and handmade goods, the Neighborhood Flea reminds us of a hybrid of the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer and Handmade Arcade, two other fantastic events for shopping and supporting local businesses.
Taking place each May, this one offers about eight hours of live music (with many bands inspired by the Caribbean), opportunities to eat street food made from the chefs at the restaurant, and of course, copious amounts of refreshments.
As block parties in the Strip District are few and far between, it is also one of only a few times of the year that a section of Smallman Street is shut down for an entire day- giving you an opportunity to enjoy the Strip District in a completely new way.
DiAnoia's is an Italian restaurant with an adorable Italian cafe vibe and is located in the Strip District.
During the week they serve an amazing lunch and dinner, but on Sundays? Sundays are for brunch. We'd heard lots of good things about their brunch, so we luckily snagged a somewhat hard to get reservation and checked it out.
We loved it so much we made a return trip for dinner and share our thoughts on both in this full review! But first, we have to start with brunch.
If you love cooking or know anyone who does, the All Clad Seconds Sale at the Washington County Fairgrounds should be on your radar.
This semi-annual event offers up deep discounts on “seconds” quality pots and pans from this high end cookware brand from Canonsburg, PA, and is one event we try to make at least once every year to pick up something new.
In this one we want to share everything you need to know about this event to ensure your shopping trip is successful!
Homewood Suites Pittsburgh is one of the newest hotel properties in the city (constructed in 2016), and is located right in the heart of the iconic Strip District neighborhood.
During our stay we wanted to find out what made this new property worth visiting, and how it stacks up to the others nearby.
When it comes to local Pittsburgh institutions, none are more famous than Primanti Brothers. For both visitors and locals alike this sandwich shop is one of the icons of Pittsburgh (often being called the Pittsburgh sandwich).
But what makes this shop so special, and why are Pittsburghers so passionate about it (on both sides of the spectrum)? It doesn't take much to figure it out.
