Mellon Square Reviews
This spot is beautiful in the warm weather when the fountains are going. Nice place to sit for a bit, eat lunch, and just relax while downtown. Gets a bit crowded during lunchtime. Worth checking out though.
Like almost everything in Pittsburgh Mellon square is a small jewel in the center of the town. The fact that is on top of a parking garage makes it even more interesting. The best time to go here is spring summer when the fountains are on. Love it!
