Worst coffee and worst service. Came up on the incline with my kids and friends and wanted to enjoy a nice cup of coffee with the view. The guy at the counter was the rudest person, just talking on the phone instead of actually working. That I could live with but the so-called "Americano" was the worst cup of coffee... More

Had a nice coffee and hot chocolate here. Pastries were nice but it is a tad expensive. Great location.

Took the trolly up hill and lucked up on this gem. Great coffee and a great owner. Fresh coffee and fresh pastries. No need to find the big chain coffeehouse.

If you gotta have your cup of joe this is the place to go on Mount Washington. They do also serve tea and pastries.

Terrible. Walked in and the owner/guy behind the counter was on his cell phone. Acted like I was interrupting him. Ordered two iced coffees and a bagel. Didn't get the bagel. He went and sat outside, had to find him to refill the creamer as it was empty. Asked for our bagel, didn't get the cream cheese we ordered. The... More

Stopped in to the Grand Brew this weekend while exploring and it was so worth it! Typically when I walk in to a bakery the goodies always look better than they taste. Not here. We tried a few different things and all of them were AMAZING. The shop is nothing fancy but it is homey. I would pop back in... More

MUST go to Mount Washington while in Pittsburgh to see the views of the city. Small coffee shop with a small town feel. Server was very friendly. Dark chocolate mocha was awesome.

The sign pointing to this coffee shop says gourmet coffee. I'm sorry but I would not call it gourmet. The shop is small and quaint and the pastries in the case looked good. But behind the counter were stacks of papers and a sink full of dirty dishes. Someone in our party wanted cream for our coffee and the owner... More

I work on the Mount and this is one of my favorite spots! Love the Owner. Super friendly and always has great conversation/interactions with his customers. Best Chia Latte in Pittsburgh and you can't beat the amazing view right around the corner!

We stopped by to grab some nice cold ice coffees after walking alongside the walls to take some great scenic pics. The coffee is good and the places has AC so it was nice. There aren't that many other options here, but it's a good choice.
