"A tradition for generations..." Pittsburgh Off The Beaten Path Tip by RblWthACoz

Pittsburgh Off The Beaten Path: 65 reviews and 124 photos

One of the best things about Pittsburgh is it's sense of tradition and that line of thought of holding on to things from the past. (It's actually the cities greatest fault at the same time, but in this instance it works out as a good thing). Gus & Yaya's has been a Pittsburgh staple for years! And not just 4, 5, or 6. I am talking 40, 50...strike up a conversation and get the whole history yourself. ;-) ( want me to tell you EVERYTHING???)

Open only during spring and summer, Gus & Yaya's little stand is ready to serve anyone and everyone a nice cold snow cone with a wide variety of syrups. Anyone who is anyone knows about Gus & Yaya's...but not just everyone knows this secret. At any time you will find all sorts of people enjoying themselves out there...and once in a has been rumored that certain Pittsburgh Steelers like to enjoy it as well.

Located on West Ohio Street in between Brighton Road and Ridge Avenue. Check the map out below...and just go where the star is.
