Hit the Street: Sewickley

You’d need to make multiple trips to experience all this town has to offer. Start with these popular spots.

Hidden off the main drag is French bistro and bakery Café des Amis [443 Division St., cafedesamispa.com]. Enjoy an entrée or dessert crepe — or an omelet, such as the zucchini, basil and goat cheese variety. Breakfast is served all day.

 

Shop at House15143 [439 Beaver St., house15143.com] for furniture, pillows, candles and other home goods. The store specializes in framed prints that can be personalized to note a wedding, person’s name, family tree or special quote.

 

Sewickley has at least 10 clothing boutiques within a few blocks of one another. Among them is the stylish Lex & Lynne [514 Beaver St., lexandlynne.com], which recently opened a second spot [430 Beaver St.] for men’s wear.

 

Grab lunch at B Gourmet [428 Beaver St., bgourmet-pgh.com], run by one of Pittsburgh Magazine’s 2014 Chefs of the Year, Chris Bonfili, and his wife, Jennifer. Its primary function is to serve as a gourmet carryout shop — order before 3 p.m. to pick up dinner between 4 and 6.

 

Get something healthy yet tasty at Salúd Juicery [348 Beaver St., saludjuicery.com]. You’ll be greeted with the smell of wheatgrass, a common ingredient. Order the Racer’s Edge smoothie, which contains peanuts, cacao, banana, oats, nutmeg and almond milk.

Dine at Vivo [432 Beaver St., vivokitchen.com], one of Sewickley’s upscale options. Main dishes have seasonal accompaniments and small-plate offerings are unconventional. 

 

While You’re There

Sewickley Village Green Partners does the holidays right through Yuletide in Sewickley, with myriad events such as Light Up Night on Dec. 5 and Santa at the Station on Dec. 7. Free carriage rides are offered every Saturday and Sunday from Dec. 6-21.

Stop by the 20th annual Holiday mART at the Sweetwater Center for the Arts [200 Broad St., sweetwaterartcenter.org] from Nov. 30-Dec. 7. The juried show offers fine-art pieces, ceramics, jewelry and more.
