Pittsburgh has an amazing coffee scene. There are coffee shops we love in every area of the city, and we’re always discovering new ones to check out because
- caffeine, duh
- coffee dates are inexpensive yet satisfying
- it’s pretty much a requirement to get a snack of some sort with your coffee, if not an entire meal
And that’s exactly why we decided we needed to visit Kaibur Coffee and Cafe.
Kaibur is located in Polish Hill and just celebrated their one-year anniversary in March. They’re proudly serving up Elixr coffees from Philadelphia to give you your caffeine-fix, in addition to the usuals like hot chocolate and tea. You can also order specialty drinks like golden milk or honey cardamom bantha milk, which both sound delicious if you ask us.
Kaibur is known for their vegan pastries, all of which are made in-house. We highly recommend the donuts, which they make on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The chocolate frosting on them is *praise hands emoji* If you follow Kaibur on Instagram, you can join us in drooling over their vegan scones (sweet and savory!), cheesecakes, pies, poptarts…you get the idea. We could make an entire meal of their sweets. Not that we would ever do that…ahem.
If pastries aren’t your thing, then we might not be able to be friends anymore. But, lucky for you, Kaibur has your back with an awesome lineup of vegan and vegetarian breakfasts, toast and bagels, sandwiches, rice bowls, and salads. They get their bread from Allegro Hearth Bakery and bagels from Pigeon Bagels. We want to try literally everything on the menu, but we highly recommend the Kaibur bagel. When there’s a bagel named after the shop, you have to try it first, right?
And, if you love brunch, check out Kaibur on Sundays. They’re offering an amazing brunch special – but no regular menu items except for their pastries and drinks. Oh, and if you’re vegan and missing paczki? Kaibur has had them the past few Sundays…so we’ll save you a seat at our table!
