Shiloh Street/Virginia Avenue
Reasons to visit
Take in the view at the top of the Monongahela Incline, grab a bite to eat, pick up some unique Pittsburgh mementos…and even do your grocery shopping at the Virginia Avenue Shop’n Save. The Shiloh Street/Virginia Avenue business district has a little something for everyone.
- Satisfy your hunger at any time of day. Eat breakfast at the Micro Diner or
J & J’s Family Restaurant, stop in for wings at Redbeards, sit down for dinner at the Harris Grill Mt. Washington, or enjoy eats and brews at Coughlin’s Law. These are just a few of the dining choices available within a few blocks.
- Want something sweet? Pick up a cupcake (or three!) at Grandview Bakery, or a soft serve cone at DiFiore’s.
- Find unique, locally crafted Pittsburgh gifts at love, Pittsburgh, or buy fresh flowers at Eiseltown.
- Your visit to Mt. Washington can include a hike through Emerald View Park, a regional park that features a series of wooded hiking trails that encircle the neighborhood like a bracelet.
- The Monongahela Incline, which brings visitors from Station Square to Grandview Avenue – and the entrance to Shiloh Street – is the oldest continuously operating incline in the U.S.
- The view of Downtown Pittsburgh was first captured from Mt. Washington by an artist in 1877.
- The Mt. Washington Community Development Corporation, one of Pittsburgh’s longest-serving community groups, works to promote the Shiloh Street/Virginia Avenue business district. In fact, they were responsible for the beautiful Shiloh Street Shops archway at the corner of Shiloh and Grandview.
