Our Favorite Places in The Strip District

Our Favorite Places in The Strip District

As Pittsburgh locals, our team definitely has our fair share of favorite places throughout the city.  Here we're sharing a list of must visit stops in the Strip.  Read on to plan your next Strip trip, and use this map to navigate on your adventure! 


Many consider the Strip District as Pittsburgh's food center.  With so many different cultures all in one neighborhood, it's fun to discover new delicious treats. 

We have a soft spot for our neighbors, Parma Sausage (located right next to our strip location).  Monica's favorite is their house-made Coppa Secca, a savory cured meat with a bit more body than prosciutto.  

Pittsburgh visitors often ask where they can try a pierogi.  For the most authentic experience, we send them down the street to S&D Polish Deli where you can eat them in the shop, or get them frozen to prepare at home!


Looking for a place to stop for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or midnight snack?  There are round the clock restaurant options in the Strip!  Our favorites are breakfast at Pamela’s Diner. Get there early to snag a table, it's worth the wait!

Refuel from all of the walking and shopping and grab either a deep dish pie for lunch at Iron Born Pizza. or the New Yorker Pizza from Pizzeria Davide

DiAnoia’s Eatery is Kelly's favorite place for a celebratory meal, but you won't want to wait for a reason to grab delicious Italian inspired dinner there. 

Out late?  The Original Primanti Brother’s is there for your hankerings for their famous fry and coleslaw filled sandwiches.

From coffee to cocktails you can find all the libations in the Strip.

De Fer Coffee & Tea is a beautiful coffee shop featuring pour over coffee, teas, and a menu you won't be able to resist.  It's ample seating makes it a great place to catch up with a good friend. 

Looking for coffee that feels like it’s straight from Italy?  Order a cappuccino in the standing room only La Prima Espresso Co

We also love to pop out for a daytime pick-me-up coffee or tea from Prestogeorge and Allegheny Coffee And Tea Exchange.


When you're ready to loosen up for the night (or day, we don't judge!) you'll find cheer in these watering holes. You'll find plenty of seating and outdoor tunes at our neighbors, 1700 Penn Ave, pouring an extensive selection of beers from Helltown Brewing.

If your party is looking for locally distilled spirits, you'll find exactly that at Wiggle Whiskey and Kingfly Spirits.  Stop by for a drink or schedule a tour to go deeper into the Pittsburgh-spirits scene.

Perennial favorites are the Beerhive for a tasty craft beer selection and drink specials,and discover the craftsmanship of the talented bartenders at Bar Marco who are ready to prepare a drink for you inspired by a few preferences.  We also adore Cinderlands, who serve up delicious brews at our Maker Moments. There is something for everyone at The PA Market, and they have a dreamy outdoor courtyard weather permitting,

If you’re walking around the Strip there are so many shops to grab your attention, we recommend not missing these shops below.

For products that will make you belly laugh to hard to find candies, Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop is where you'll find your inner child again. 

For swoon worthy florals and the best dried lavender, pop into Roxanne’s Dried Flowers.
