Pittsburgh Coffee Places Near Bakery Square

Pittsburgh Coffee near the Google Office at Bakery Square
Bakery Square Pittsburgh is an up and coming neighborhood centered around a re-purposed Nabisco factory. I had a chance to visit Bakery Square for work and, as always, I like to combine business with pleasure. I took time each morning to explore the Pittsburgh coffee scene within walking distance of Bakery Square. Here are six Pittsburgh coffee shops and associated morning walks to check out if you find yourself in the Steel City.

1. Zeke’s Coffee in Pittsburgh's East Liberty Neighborhood

Zeke’s is my go to place for artisanal coffee in East Liberty, just a 15 minute walk from Bakery Square Pittsburgh. Zeke’s is a boutique Pittsburgh coffee roaster serving amazing cakes and pastries plus a variety of whole beans. Zeke’s even has a drive thru (you can also walk up to it) right behind Bakery Square. East Liberty is a historic neighborhood that is undergoing major changes. Historic mom and pop shops sit side-by-side with brand new apartments and chain stores.

2. Adda Coffee and Tea House in Pittsburgh's Shadyside Neighborhood

Adda Coffee and Tea House serves up itty bitty but perfectly crafted cappuccinos. Their takeaway cups are about 10 oz. Located in Shadyside just a 10 minute walk from Pittsburgh’s Bakery Square, Adda’s coffee may be tiny but it packs a punch. Browse fine ceramics and artisan chocolate bars while waiting for the barista to serve up a perfect cup.

3. Jitters and a Tour from Bakery Square Through Shadyside

A short walk along a dirt path took me from the busy streets around Pittsburgh's Bakery Square into the residential neighborhood of Shadyside and onto Walnut Street. Walnut Street features vibrant shops and restaurants but in the morning, Jitters Cafe is the place to be. Fresh coffee and biscotti got my day started.

Cruising through the neighborhood as the sun came up, I spotted starlings sunning themselves and even a bright red cardinal.

4. Commonplace Coffee Point Breeze and Homewood Cemetery

The next day, I set out in the opposite direction toward Pittsburgh's Point Breeze and Commonplace Coffee (formerly Make Your Mark). Try their cold brew coffee for a refreshing buzz on a hot summer’s day in Pittsburgh.

Coffee in hand, I noticed road signs for Frick Park and Homewood Cemetery. I had about an hour before I needed to be at work and decided to check it out. I spotted more birds as I strolled through this residential area of Pittsburgh including a bluejay and a red-bellied woodpecker.

It's important to get some caffeine before tackling the walk to Homewood Cemetery as it is a decidedly uphill climb. The effort is worth it though as the park features sweeping views and also the tombstones of some of Pittsburgh's most famous residents including members of the Frick, Mellon, and Heinz families.

Continuing back toward Bakery Square, this garden sign made me smile. Laugh. It reminded me that no matter how busy we are, it's important to take time each day to do something we enjoy.

On this walk, I was also impressed by the stately homes along Beechwood Blvd. No two were the same.

5. Coffee Tree Roasters, Chatham University and Mellon Park

Coffee Tree Roasters is located at Pittsburgh's Bakery Square and from here, I was ready for anything. Coffee in hand, I made my way to Chatham University. Most of the campus is designated as an arboretum and I had the place nearly entirely to myself when I visited around 7 am.

On the way back toward Bakery Square, I detoured through Mellon Park and took a moment to admire the well coiffed beds and fountains as a light rain began to fall.

6. Crazy Mocha Coffee and a Foggy Walk on Ellsworth Ave

Who doesn't love a coffee shop with a goat as a mascot? I made my way back to the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh but this time walked down Ellsworth Ave to Crazy Mocha. I sipped my coffee at the tables outside in a deep blanket of fog. Crazy Mocha also features a wide range of biscotti (biscotti in general seemed to be a 'thing' in the Pittsburgh coffee scene). I treated myself to a Salted Caramel Chocolate biscotti to fuel my walk back to Bakery Square.

Here is a handy map covering the six different walks around Bakery Square Pittsburgh that I took during my visit. It's always worth it to make time for a bit of fun and relaxation on a business trip. These Pittsburgh coffee walks show that you don't even have to go that far afield for a bit of morning commute fun in Pennsylvania!
