Swellers Secret Spots: Beehive Cafe / Pittsburgh, PA
Our friend Evan (Into It. Over It.) showed us this spot and it made our touring in Pittsburgh experience infinitely better. You walk in and hear punk rock music, see tattooed mid to late twenties punk or hardcore enthusiasts working behind the counter and it feels like home.
I ordered the thai peanut tofu sandwich, barley soup and a delicious iced mocha. The place doubles as a place for delicious coffee do I felt with my new found interest I should indulge.
The sandwich was misleadingly filling although it looks like a smaller serving at first glance. Cooked just right and anything Thai related adds perfection to food. The soup was the first time I willingly tried barley and I loved it, perfect addition to the sandwich. I did the fat guy thing and dipped my sandwich in the soup mmmmmmm. Iced mocha was great too and didn’t get gross after the 2nd half which I learned happens often.
Everyone else enjoyed their food and it was the perfect, healthy, amount of full. Also stop by to see Roger from White Wives working there and give him a huge tip!
Swellers rate this place: affordable, perfect pre-show meal and great atmosphere.
