Arriviste Coffee Bar is a bright, aesthetically pleasing (cue the Insta inspo) coffee shop tucked away on Ellsworth Avenue in Shadyside. The menu is simple. The space is inviting. And the baristas are extra friendly. WIN– All the necessary ingredients for a great coffee shop. This East End spot serves up specialty coffee and tea and offers a great selection of pastries from local bakeries.
You can expect to see lots of neighborhood residents and students posted up here all day long, every day of the week. Being one of few independent cafes in the neighborhood, it's a happening spot. If you’re lucky enough to snag a chair at a table or squeeze in on one of the couches, there’s free WiFi.
And if those mid-day munchies get the best of you, you’ll be happy to know that Tipsy Cow is directly across the street. The french fries are killer, there’s tons of options on their build-your-own-burger menu, and the patio is dog-friendly. Think Burgatory… with less “chain restaurant” vibes… and cuter decor. Let's be real, that's important.
