Carnegie is a small, quiet town. I felt a bit far from the city but that happens anytime I travel more than 15 minutes from Pittsburgh. On our way to find the coffee shop we took a wrong turn but once we arrived, I felt at ease.
Carnegie Coffee Company is located in what used to be the Carnegie Post Office. Instead of tearing everything away, I love how the owners decided to keep the post office fixtures, the old door and the mailboxes. Working within the confines of the historic space, the coffee shop has a bright, airy and modern feel.
I sincerely wish this place was in my neighborhood but I think it’s worth the drive and if you live in the West End, it’s close by! Make sure you visit if you haven’t.
