The Fire Escape, a Place for Everyone

The Fire Escape next to the Ben Avon Fire Department

If I told you I went to Ben Avon, PA  you would probably look confused and say “Where is that?”  Ben Avon, PA is just 6 miles north of Downtown Pittsburgh, just off the Camp Horne Road Exit on I-279 North.   It’s a quiet, small borough with a church, a mix of new, old and Victorian homes, a small handful of little businesses and right next to the Fire Station is The Fire Escape.

The Fire Escape is a coffee and tea shop with some really good food! In the mornings the locals stop in for the coffee before their bus or car ride to work, parents dropping off their kids at the bus stop always go in and kids coming home from school stop by and they get a small snack before heading home!

The Fire Escape on UrbanspoonI wasn’t exactly hungry at the time of my visit, but I went for a nice hot cup of apple cider.   The Fire Escape offers lattes, teas, coffee, frozen drinks like smoothies and bottled drinks.   They also have a nice variety of pastry and lunch options like wraps, salads, a soup of the day and their all famous Chili that is Hormone and Antibiotic free!

The next time you are in the North hills of Pittsburgh go say hello to The Fire Escape!
