Today is a big day for me because I am starting my new job (more details to come soon)! I am so excited to start this new phase but I have enjoyed the past couple of weeks exploring as well. It just feels right being back in Pittsburgh. I've stopped by some classic spots like Eat n' Park, gone back to old favorites like Pittsburgh Popcorn, and tried out some new places as well!
The other day I was in the Sewickley area and I was in the mood for some coffee! I knew there was a Starbucks nearby but wasn't sure of any local shops in the area. So, of course, I pulled out my Yelp app and found this amazing gem, Adesso Cafe!
Adesso means "now" in Italian so I figured this would be a small and quick place to get some coffee. What I didn't know was how much this place had to offer! Not only was the coffee great (and reasonably priced) but they also had gluten free pastries from Gluuteny! Twice a week they have sweets from La Gourmandine Bakery, which is one of my favorites! PLUS, they are going to have lunch options soon! I got all this info from the cheery man behind the counter. I can't wait to go back and try some different treats out!
The only drawback for me was that they don't have any seating. Again, I understand that it just isn't that type of place but, to me, I like to sit down and enjoy my coffee when I go to a local shop.
Even so, as I said before, I will definitely be back! I have a feeling during the warm Summer months that I will become a regular!
