Stumbled across this unique coffee shop / Vietnamese inspired cuisine café in Lower Lawrenceville!

Location 3920 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15224

Date of Trial April 25, 2019

“Situated at the top of Lawrenceville in a motorcycle shop turned coffee shop, we’re making as much from scratch as possible and sourcing just about everything else locally.” - Ineffable Ca Phe Website

One day, I was leaving Constellation Coffee and decided to take a stroll towards Yoga Factory. I was super hungry and had about 2 hours before my hot yoga class so I decided to test out my intuition and just freely walk until I stumbled upon a place of interest. Indeed, I did! This coffee shop / Vietnamese Ca Phe has unique curb appeal so I decided to check it out.

The space on the inside was large and the barista was extremely friendly! Find my review of their bubble tea below!


Purchased Mango Black Bubble Tea with Lychee Jelly (and Pho Ga)

The Ratings

Overall - B-

Items below are rated on a scale from 1 to 5 (1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest)

  • Presentation - 3 (I wish their plastic cups had a fun label)

  • Boldness - 2

  • Sweetness - 4

  • Price - $4.00 ($4.50 for the slightly larger size)

I enjoyed the bubble tea but the ice to tea ratio was a bit off. The ice overpowered the beverage and weakened the overall intensity of the tea.

Lots of space to get to work or lounge out and enjoy your beverage and food!
