Modern Cafe has been serving “shots and beer on the North Shore since 1933.” Their exterior neon sign lights up Western Ave., while (fun trivia fact alert!) their interior has a cameo in the movie “Wonder Boys.”

Since you aren’t driving, this is a great opportunity to take advantage of their wide selection craft beers, including local favorites Hitchhiker and Grist House. The menu is comprised of hefty sandwiches, salads, and burgers (or you can take advantage of the Modern Hangover Wrap on their Saturday brunch menu). After your drinks and meal, remember you can also grab an ice cream sandwich for dessert and support another fabulous female-owned business — Leona’s Ice Cream Sandwiches!
GUYS! Stop what you’re doing and check out these new flavors just dropped off by the fabulous ladies at @LeonasLLC! Get. Yours. Now 🤤 pic.twitter.com/olqLKj1RAw

After your belly is full of beer and food and ice cream, stumble around the corner to City Books. Owned by Arlan Hess, City Books is Pittsburgh’s oldest used bookstore. At approximately 600 square feet, it might seem tiny, but she packs a lot onto the shelves. (I have never left empty handed.)
