We love ice cream. See here and here if you need a reminder. But, we can’t believe we’re saying this…we feel we’ve neglected milkshakes. So we’re soaking up the last days of summer by drooling over these 14 spots to get the best milkshakes in Pittsburgh!
The Milkshake Factory
Can you even talk about milkshakes without mentioning The Milkshake Factory? And do we even need to say anything else about them? We didn’t think so.
Paige Dairy Mart
Paige Dairy Mart is another classic choice when you’re looking for anything ice-cream-related around Pittsburgh. Pro tip: get a South Side Shake if you’re feeling extra indulgent!
Nothing goes better with a milkshake than a burger and fries, which is why we love Burgatory so much. Bonus – they also offer vegan shakes!
We know how much you love the chocolates from Sarris, but did you know they also make ice cream and milkshakes? You can even get curbside pickup with your milkshake order – just follow the directions on their website.
Klavon’s Ice Cream Parlor
Sinful Sweets Chocolate Company
You’ll have to stop by the store if you want a milkshake or malt from Sinful Sweets, but it’s worth a visit! They have classic flavors, fun flavors (like coffee toffee, yum), and seasonal flavors. Is it too soon for pumpkin? #askingforafriend
If you want the most decadent milkshake you can imagine, head to Fudge Farm. We’re talking totally Insta-worthy shakes with a decorated cup, whipped cream, and huge toppings. And if the ones on their menu aren’t what you’re looking for, you can build your own!
Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream
With ice cream as good as Millie’s, you know it makes a great milkshake! The hardest part is deciding which flavor to get…although you can always make the decision easier by taking home a sundae box, too 😉
Scoops has 5 locations around Pittsburgh, so you can always get your milkshake fix. They have all the classic flavors, plus some nostalgic flavors we loved as kids. Cotton candy milkshake, anyone?
Did you know Square Cafe makes milkshakes?? We, surprisingly, didn’t …and now we need to get there ASAP to try one. As if we needed an excuse!
Frio has classic milkshakes like chocolate and vanilla. But we’re here for their specialty shakes – fried ice cream, Oreo xtreme, and hello, coffee affair! Is three shakes too many shakes??
Happy Day Dessert Factory
We love that we can customize our shakes at Happy Day Dessert Factory with custard or water ice. And, we also love that they have dairy-free options. Everybody wins…and gets a shake!
Treats N Beans
A milkshake is the perfect after-class treat, so stop by Treats N Beans. We won’t judge if you also end up getting some of their other treats…especially if you want to share that waffle with us!
