Places that are awesome at take-out and social distancing in PGH!
First of all, I love their matcha lattes. Very similar to the ones I got from Japan. Secondly, they ask for you to social distance when in the store. They also have a separator between you and the person behind the bar. Every time I have gone, the barista always hand sanitized his/her hands before making my drink. They do not have their seating open just yet to prevent close quarters.
La Gourmandine Bakery
Holy mother of French baked goods! Even the virus cannot stop me from getting their perfectly flaky croissants. That’s why I love what policies they put in place at their Lawrenceville store. They ask that you wear a mask, keep six feet apart, and they only allow 2 customers in the shop at once. The great thing for checking out is they have a Plexiglas separator between me and the register. All you have to do is put your credit card in the quick square space reader and you don’t even have to touch any screens!!
Ps: the downtown location opens 6/15
Iron Born Pizza
My first time actually trying iron born was during this pandemic but dayuummm, its good! I had seen so many people on social media purchasing and hey, I was getting jealous. Iron Born has their stuff together; all you have to do is order online! Once you go to pick up the pizza you can wait outside, they will send you a text when your pizza is ready. The workers wear gloves and masks, they leave the door open so that no one has to touch the knob, and only allow one customer in the shop at a time (you can only order online). This shop is a germaphobes dream.
Always been my family’s favorite burger joint. It was super easy to order and grab food for curbside. I even got a shake to go and god it was so good! The eastside and Galleria location are now open for indoor service. They both have outdoor patio space and will have social distancing tables. They ask that you wear a mask when coming into the restaurant.
Pittsburgh Juice Company
Ok so obviously we have been all eating like crap but it’s now summer and Pgh juice company provides some awesome healthy drinks. The team there was very flexible, let me pay online and get my drinks curbside!
