1) Entertainment Central’s food writer Deborah McDonald loves Biddle’s Escape, on Biddle Avenue between Regent Square and Wilkinsburg. Deborah reports they have a great selection of coffee drinks, teas, and sweet treats. She especially likes the Hungarian szegedi kave: 2 shots of espresso, 2 shots of steamed cream, maple/cinnamon sugar, and whipped cream. Another cool thing, Deborah says, is their patio where on a warm day you can sit beneath the trees and carved wood faces and enjoy the fall foliage. As you may remember from local history and a movie titled Mrs. Soffel, the Biddle brothers escaped from the Allegheny County jail with the aid of Mrs. Soffel (the warden’s wife who was in love with one of the brothers) in 1902. 401 Biddle Ave., Regent Square/Wilkinsburg.
