I like it when I have something nice to say about the Southside in Pittsburgh.
I have a cool biker friend.... sorry, maybe I should clarify - I have a cool cyclist friend who has been wanting to go to the bicycle cafe "Over the Bar - OTB" in the Southside for a while. After a few weeks of missed connections, we finally made it happen.
She biked down, I drove (cause I'm cool), and we had a wonderful lunch. The cafe is a great lunch spot for bike fanatics because the restuarant is just a small diversion off of the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. The cafe is a great lunch spot for food fanatics because the restuarant is delicious.
If you are spending a day biking all over the city, OTB is the perfect place to break up the day with a meal.
Over the Bar cafe exemplifies delicious bar food. The cafe has a hefty menu that may take sometime to sift through. There truly is something for everyone, no matter the dietary restriction (or lack of).
Every menu can be performed with a healthy twist (substitute meat, substitute bread, ect.). There are salads, sandwiches, and of course - many burgers to choose from. Almost every item is named after a Pittsburgh biking reference. Actually, why don't you just take a look at the menu for yourself?
Also, great new - they serve brunch.
OTB as a restuarant that will make any type of eater happy. If you are biking the GAP, Over the Bar is a must stop. If you are looking for a solid meal in the Southside, check it out too. It is solid bar food people... enough said.
Allow me to close with their drink specials.... you are welcome....
