What’s Happening on E. Ohio Street?

rebecca - Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Historic Deutschtown in the North Side of Pittsburgh is a unique area that throughout the years has evolved, experiencing hardships and reaping the benefits of good times. Currently, these five establishments have been putting E. Ohio Street on the map for Pittsburghers and tourists alike.


The newest establishment on E. Ohio Street is a pet shop called Wagsburgh. Built in the historic Wags building on the North Side, the owners jumped on the opportunity to set up shop in a place with such a perfect name. Wagsburgh was born thereafter and strives to “create a stronger, and more joyful bond between you and your furry family for many healthy years to come.” They specialize engaging toys, grooming supplies, and offer a wide variety of nutritious pet food and treats.

Wagsburgh is the perfect place to take your furry friend. Park View Apartments, City View Apartments, and Carson Street Commons are pet friendly apartments that accept all of your cats and have some breed restrictions, but not weight restrictions, on dogs. A short walk for Park View residents and a nice spot when visiting the North Side for all other residents, Wagsburgh is a must-see!

Also, we’ve partnered with them in our Faros Perks program! All throughout April, they are offering 10% off purchases when you show your perks card. Then after that, their discounts will vary.

They are closed on Mondays, but open Tuesday-Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday-Sunday 9am-3pm.

Farmer’s Daughter

Spring is such a beautiful season. And, when April Showers aren’t keeping you held up in your apartment, take a walk down E. Ohio Street and visit one of the coolest flower shops in Pittsburgh. Farmer’s Daughter specializes in flower arrangements for all occasions – weddings, baby showers, everyday décor – and they also have a boutique where they sell unique jewelry, succulents, candles, and more!

The owners are passionate about flowers and their store is a great spot to pick out last-minute presents or well-thought out gifts!

They are closed on Mondays and Sundays, but open Tuesday-Friday 11am-7pm and Saturday 11am-4pm.

Arnold’s Tea

Arnold’s Tea is the only shop that specializes in the business of selling a variety of hot and cold tea beverages on E. Ohio Street. With a menu of smoothies, sandwiches, soups, salad, and pastries prepared by local artisans, it’s a nice spot to go on a lunch break or weekend outing. With free Wi-Fi, Arnold’s Tea is a great shop to visit to get some work done if you find yourself distracted in your apartment. Park View residents can even take a short walk to the shop and grab a tea to go.

With a motto, “steeping in quality,” there’s really no other tea house in the immediate Pittsburgh area that compares.

Arnold’s Tea is closed Sundays, but open Monday-Friday 7:30am-5pm and Saturdays 8am-5pm.

The Priory Pastries

The same founders of the Priory Hotel, and Grand Hall – popular event locations in Pittsburgh – own Priory Pastries on E. Ohio Street. Located in historic Deutschtown since 2004, this shop is the perfect location to grab a coffee and pastry or order specialty desserts for parties or work functions. Choose from cupcakes, party cakes, cookies, pies, pastries, and donuts!

The Priory is closed on Sundays, but open Monday-Friday 6am-5pm and Saturdays 6am-3pm.


Bistro To Go Café & Catering is the final must-see spot on E. Ohio Street. Its two-part setup – catering and café – is built around a strong community-oriented philosophy. They love food and they love the North Side community.

At the café, you can order fresh sides and hot entrees consisting of hearty cross-cultural comfort foods, healthy favorites, vegetarian/vegan and gluten free selections. In addition, gourmet sandwiches, fresh salads and homemade soups are a daily staple. If you feel like dining at the shop, they have a garden terrace, or they have take-out options.

Bistro-to-Go Café is open Monday-Friday 11am-5pm, and catering hours are anytime!
