Stopped while touring the museum. Service was a little slow. Food was different and tasty. Many interesting sodas. Wonderful to eat outside in Pittsburgh in April. My daughter even ate the cauliflower "mac" and cheese

Go here even if you aren't going to the Mattress Factory. This is a small place (you see them prepping the food). We had soup, salads, and grilled cheese (fancy with lots of cheeses and bacon). All were good.

I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty and healthy my lunch was at the Cafe. I tried the soup of the day and a salad. Plenty of vegetarian options and plenty for carnivores. I recommend it strongly

I love healthy clean food and everything I have ever ordered here has been exceptional. The service is not very fast but if you have the time it is worth the wait.
