Food Scene
This is our favorite place to go for breakfast sandwiches in the city. They also have a good lunch menu. Their bread, bagels, and pretty much everything else are amazing- plus it's a female-owned cooperative bakery!

This place is unassuming and what it lacks in charm is made up for with the menu. BEST chicken finger sub in town. Don't let Jim's Steakout fool you.

Great brunch on the weekends, and it's especially convenient because it's around the corner but make sure to get there early because there is usually a wait.

Drinks & Nightlife
This bar is called Duende and it's such a hidden gem it's not even listed in Maps. In the heart of Silo City- little known bar with big screens for watching games, views of the old grain silos and the Buffalo River, and some small plates if you feel like a snack. Highly recommend!

If you want to really know Allentown, you must go to The Pink, but don't go before 1am. It's grungy, loud, unapologetic, and well... an experience. If it's late night and you need eats- go for a steak sammy. Trust us.

Could have listed this for food scene as well because the food is awesome. $2 oysters on the weekends. Obviously huge selection of whiskeys, and delicious cocktails. Most times I've been they have live music. A bit pricier (for Buffalo)
