Independent Coffee-House 4/16/2006

In a recent trip to Pittsburgh, PA my friends and I stopped for coffee in a little coffee house called Kiva Han Coffee. It’s a really cool independent coffee house with a unique atmosphere and appearance. While I personally cannot vouch for the iced coffee, my friends all enjoyed their coffee, and I enjoyed my Italian Soda. (it was a touch too sweet, but still cool and pleasant after several hours touring Carnegie Mellon and University of Pittsburgh.) There was a very nice 2nd level that had a very comfortable couch and a band was setting up for a gig later that evening. Recently, a Starbucks has moved in across the street to try to force Kiva Han out of business. So if you’re standing between Kiva Han and Starbucks, try Kiva Han and support the local business. more

Great Tea, Nice people 11/13/2005

They people here aren't starbucks-going yuppies, but they also aren't smelly hippies. It's the perfect blend of people who just want to have a warm drink. It's nice to go here and not be bothered by the annoying background music of starbucks (which they sell at the counters). Kiva Han has a hotspot too, for people who are so obsessed with their email that they can't wait till they get to work to check it. But I think it's a telerama spot, so you might have to pay. Don't take my word on that one way or the other. Anyway, in short, the tea is good, I assume the coffee can stand on its own as well. Nice atmosphere and no pushy employees with annoying uniforms. more

great place 9/22/2005

Kiva Han is a really good coffee shop. They have a very unique atmosphere, and whenever there you feel like family. The coffee is pretty good too, although I do not recommend the espresso. If you just want to get a latte or a regular coffe Kiva Han is a great non corporate place to go. more

A great alternative to Starbucks 8/31/2005

Locately conveniently on the corner of Forbes and North Craig, this is a nice spot for those with an antipathy to Starbucks. Often sporting notices for local bands, political meetings, and other assorted events you won't find advertised elsewhere. Be sure to try the granola, it's fabulous, as is most of the vegetarian fare. A nice place to spend the afternoon whiling away the hours studying, doing a crossword, or taking advantage of the wireless connection. more
