A Local’s Guide to Pittsburgh: Best Place for Ice Cream
You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! In my case, I scream for the ice cream at Oh Yeah! Ice Cream and Coffee Co. located in Shadyside on Highland Avenue. With a continually shifting menu of rich, adult (alcoholic), or vegan ice creams, variety is certainly not lacking at Oh Yeah! Added to the flavor variety are the number of mix-ins available, scrawled on the shop chalkboard, which range from Swedish fish, to bacon, to squirrel meat (actually a donation to a local charity). Note that I did not say toppings, but mix-ins. Oh Yeah!’s signature is the process of blending/pulverizing the mix-ins into the ice cream to create a unique tasting ice cream, rather than chunks in the ice cream. My favorite? Marshmallow and graham crackers mixed with caramel ice cream.
But Oh Yeah! serves more than ice cream. They serve waffles. That’s right, waffles, especially those of the buttermilk, buckwheat, or vegan cinnamon variety. What’s better than waffles? Waffles topped with Oh Yeah! ice cream. What’s better than waffles topped with Oh Yeah! ice cream? Adding Oh Yeah! mix-ins into the waffle batter, and then topping with ice cream. The buckwheat and vegan cinnamon are also gluten-free, for those concerned.
Go check out the fun and crazy decor the next time you are in Pittsburgh, or take a virtual look around the shop. Grab a waffle or ice cream, you won’t be disappointed.
