Cheesecake Cafe, Irwin
If you are looking for break from the crazy day or need to celebrate with a custom made treat , this is the place. This coffee shop has a great selection of hot coffees and steamed varieties of the soothing lattes and more. As the name also suggest , they have cheesecakes, cheesecakes, and more cheesecakes ! My favorite one is the triple chocolate cheesecake! The really nice treat of the cafe’ is it is hosted in a Victorian parlor like room and if the weather allows, there is outdoor seating !
Peace, Love, and Little Donuts, Irwin
One of the newer shops in the area but has been around the Pittsburgh area for awhile. When you get bored with the regular circled breakfast treats, you can have a donut that has toppings as unique as you. My favorite donut is the maple bacon donut followed by the coffeecake donut. So good! All of this joy is followed up by a fresh cup of coffee and we are talking a love fest! This center of the peace and love of donut perfection is located on Rt. 30 in the Irwin Plaza. I can only end this stop with , Peace Out!
White Rabbit Cafe, Downtown Greensburg
This has become my new hangout in Downtown Greensburg! This cafe is located on Main Street and up from the courthouse . It is a more of a homey cafe with different sized and made tables with unmatched chairs. Enough about of the furniture! The baked goods are out of this world! I am a simple person so when I bit into the half inch thick , warm chocolate cookie, I felt like I fell into a hole surrounded by chocolate and friendship . My vanilla cappacino was so crafted! It wasn’t squirted out of a machine or hot water and mix. You won’t be treated to that. No, no, no! It was brought to life! And it was a first for me, my cup of art had a leaf design in the foam . So cool! Just wish I could get there more often !
Colonial Grille, Downtown Irwin
“The Grille” is the reason why I live in the Irwin area. My first trip to the area brought me to Downtown Irwin and just wanted to grab a quick but non-wrapper breakfast . It looked like a place that I used to go to in my hometown in Illinois. The short story is that I sat at the counter on a swivel stool and had a ‘Rasher” of bacon, dippy eggs, home fries, and rye toast. I caught up with the local politics and I believe the man next to me was the mayor! I have already mentioned my favorite breakfast which I have enjoyed for the last 27 years, but. if you come for lunch or dinner, you have to try the brosted chicken meal. You may not be able to have chicken anywhere else. The also have a Taproom in the back and watch for the nights they have Jazz Nights !
The Manor Grill, Manor
This gem of Manor on Harrison City-Manor Road is the place for breakfast and coffee. If you walk away hungry from here, you forgot to open your mouth! So good! And if you are looking for a lenten place for fish, my mom-in-law used to say that they must have gotten confused and fried a whale! That says it all. Another reason to support this wonderful place, The owner and staff supply Thanksgiving dinners to people who can not have one due to need. It is a great thing they do! Enjoy this gem!
Hermine Diner, Downtown Hermine
I am including the Herminie Diner even though I have not been here yet. I have had lots of business recently in the Riltton and Herminie area and I ask where is a good place for coffee and breakfast. The only place I get told is this diner. I have found out that the breakfast are under the control of a local lady who has had a much missed breakfast place across the street.Then I found out that the owner is one of the associates of the legendary ANDROS of White Oak. That means high quality of service and mouth demanding gyros! I can’t wait to make it there and enjoy some time filling up on the specials ! I’ll let you know how it goes .
Do you have a favorite? Let me know where and what I should try.
