Oh Yeah! Ice Cream & Coffee encourages you to eat ice cream for breakfast. If you're a traditionalist, the shop will even slide a homemade waffle under the creamy scoops, though it's still your responsibility to hire bluebirds to sing on your shoulder while you eat. And if that doesn't cut it, visitors can customize their treats with nearly 100 different toppings, from classic candy and granola to fresh ginger and wasabi peas.
As unique as Oh Yeah!'s ice cream creations might seem, the shop's interior takes things to another level: every inch of space is covered by things that are edible, drinkable, readable, or watchable. In addition to ice cream, guests can dip into fat-free sorbets and sip on organic, free-trade coffees while kicking back around the shop's mismatched tables and chairs. The boutique eatery also features a library full of donated books, and hosts weekly movie nights and frequent debates?yes, debates?about environmental and social topics.

The proudly independent family crew that runs The Pittsburgh Bagel Factory brings the same commitment to tasty food and early-rising work ethics that made their bagels a local staple to their new Craig St. location.

Custom blends of eggs, morning meats, and cheese gussy up handheld comestibles, while burgers flip from sizzling grills to challah buns dressed with toppings ranging from grilled onions and mushrooms to fried eggs and peach barbecue sauce. Staff also pull shots of espresso to add to steaming mugs that vanquish sleepiness from faces.

In her bio, Margaret Harris jokes that she "may have had her first 'cup of tea' when she was only one day old." That's because Harris was raised in Poland, where tea, she writes, "is the primary household beverage." Today, she applies her training at the Warsaw Medical College to discuss the health benefits of her brews with customers at her tea-and-coffee shop, Margaret's Fine Imports. In addition to stocking more than 200 types of loose-leaf tea, from Chinese green tea to British teas such as Taylor's Yorkshire Gold tea and PG Tips, Harris completes proper tea times with German and Polish sweets, Asian-style tea sets, and napkins autographed by the Mad Hatter.
