From hotcakes to ice cream, Pittburgh has a lot to offer. Here is where I found myself on the first day of my stay in Pennsylvania.
My family and I started the day by going to this diner for breakfast. It is famous for its hot cakes which are basically thinner pancakes, like pancrepes. I got the stack of the cakes, and they were pretty delicious!
2. Conflict Kitchen
For lunch, we went to Conflict Kitchen which is basically a stand in a park near Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh. Every so often, the restaurant will change the ethnicity of the food they are serving based on who the United States has a conflict with. Today, they served Persian food, and it was fantastic. Also, it was lunch with a nice view since the park was beautiful.
3. The Frick Museum
My mom and I then ventured to The Frick’s latest temporary installment: Killer Heels. There were just a ton of crazy, awesome heels. There were Dior shoes and Louis Vuitton stilettos, and many more.
4. The Frick Greenhouse
After we saw the exhibit, we took a look outside and saw The Frick’s amazing greenhouse. There were a ton of different plants inside, including cacti and eggplants. This building is definitely a must-see.
5. Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream
We walked all the way from the Frick to Millie’s, which was about a thirty minute walk. It wouldn’t have been too bad if it wasn’t SO humid. I was afraid the ice cream wouldn’t be worth the walk, but don’t worry, it was. This was literally the best ice cream I have ever had. Millie’s had awesome flavors and a really cute atmosphere.
