i have not been to any of the restaurants on the Duquesne Heights end of Mt Washington for years, but unless things have changes, there is nothing particularly kid friendly up there. They all are for the higher end adult market.
As the for Carnegie Science Center, there is nowhere to eat nearby, kid friendly or not. Not too far away is Peppi’s on Western Avenue, which might be fun for a kid. (See http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/s_195051.html
I can’t say I know of anything on the way to the Airport except for the Sharp Edge Creekhouse, which, while its known for its Belgian beer, has a menu a kid could like.
I heartily endorse DeLuca’s, Klavon’s and either of the unrelated Original Hot Dog Shops (Oakland or Station Street.)
Let me know if you want more info on any of these options
Thanks for the info.
I’ve been thinking a ride up the Duquesne Incline and dinner might be fun, but not sure how id friendly any of the restaurants at the top are? Otherwise we will be at Carnegy Nat’l Science museum that day, so something out that way would be good too or something on the way back to our hotel near the airport.
First of all, welcome to Roadfood!
Even though I know Pittsburgh restaurants fairly well, since I don’t have children, I’m not very good at saying if they are kid friendly or not. But, both De Luca’s and Original Hot Dog Shop are local institutions and are well worth the visit. For breakfast
One place I would suggest would be Klavon’s, a lovely old fashioned soda fountain that I imagine a five year old would enjoy.
If you have a specific type of food you would like to try, please let me know and I will be happy to have some other recommendations for you.
Looking for a couple of stops in Pitt for spring break. With 5 year old in tow, can’t get too fancy but he does have a pretty good palate. At 3 he was noting the difference between dijon and honey mustard and which he prefered on his ham sandwich. Was thinking Deluca’s and/or Original Hot Dog Shop. Need something for a nice dinner perhaps?
