If you have the chance, park the car and have a nice walk around Shadyside. The shops and restaurants in this area are beautiful. Enjoy the main street with all the new and upcoming restaurants. A foodie friendly area. :) Enjoy

Shadyside quaint little shopping area with a few bars and restaurants. Unfortunately we went late at night so most of the stores are closed but I could see spending a few hours here just wandering around. Mario's looked loud and busy so we settled for Cappy's, as we wanted to sit and talk. Nice little bar.

Since we couldn't find a place in Pittsburgh to stroll around and do some shopping in stores and boutiques , we took a cab to Shadyside . It has lots of small shops to browse in , as well as nice restaurants.

Shadyside is an upscale, trendy area of Pittsburgh with a variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants, coffee houses, bars, lounges and much more. It is an area of beautiful Victorian homes. Shadyside is another one of Pittsburgh's many diverse neighborhoods

If you like almonds (Most Nutritious), you must try their almond cake. The texture if fairly light and moist and the icing is just sweet enough. They are almost always busy, which is the best recommendation.

My son just moved to Shadyside and I visited from NJ. I would compare Shadyside to a smaller Hoboken for those who are aware of NJ's gentrified very hip and hot city. Shadyside has a young, upscale crowd with lovely homes, restaurants, and shops. It's very walkable and parking and traffic is not nearly as difficult as in my NY/NJ... More

Fun place in Pittsburgh to explore! Definitely pay a visit to Walnut St. Mercurios, Cafe Moulin, and Shady Grove are wonderful, and Cappy's is a hidden gem. Prantl's burnt almond torte is to die for!!

Had some extra time when in Pittsburgh and took some advice and went to Shadyside. We were able to drive around and see wonderful homes of many different architectural styles. Then we parked and went to the shops for a look, had a coffee and a light lunch, really a fun place to people watch and whatever else you might... More
