Our Story

Ineffable is the unlikely, yet beautiful marriage of an industrial-style classic American coffee shop (think: double espresso to stay) and an authentic Vietnamese café (think: hot, crispy banh mi sandwiches and freshly pressed sugar cane). 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. Our focus is quality – quality coffee and quality sandwiches. We’re excited to give Pittsburghers yet another awesome place to eat, drink and just be yourself. Being a little boy in Vietnam, one hand holding my dad’s and the other holding fresh-made banh mi practically too hot to handle – has always been a memory I’d hope to pass on to children of my own someday. Come see what it’s all about!
