For wheelchair users Reds meets almost all Mass Accessibility Codes, from parking to bathrooms and interior seating. The accessible path of travel to the different parts of the restaurant is fine. The food is great with a good variety and reasonable pricing.

I am a Master of Occupational Therapy student and a few of my classmates and I were interested in discovering the accessibility of the parking garage located in Bakery Square. Bakery square offers a wide variety to consumers including restaurants, shops, and businesses. However, there is very limited parking in this area and many people have to park in the garage in order to reach their desired destination. There are two entrances to the parking garage, one on the east end and one on the west. The west entrance is marked as the accessible entrance. After analyzing the west entrance we discovered that the switch to open the door was broken. However the door is wide enough so that a wheelchair could fit through. The lobby has plenty of space but we did notice that slot to insert your ticket and money is about 53" high which may be difficult for someone to reach if they are in a wheelchair. Also, there were no signs in the indicating what floor of the garage had accessible parking spots. We stopped on the first floor and were shocked when we didn’t see any accessible parking spots. However accessible spots were located on higher levels of the garage. While a driver could just continue driving through the garage to locate parking, this is an inconvenience and can be fixed with the addition of a simple sign. Also, there was no evacuation information displayed other than "use stairs if fire" next to the elevators. Lastly, we rated the external path to entrances as a 3 out of 5 because of the switch being broken. Also, curb cuts were fairly far away from the entrance, which would force someone in a wheelchair to go further than needed to get over the curb. Overall, the Bakery Square parking garage was up to ADA standards regarding accessibility but we would recommend curb cuts closer to the entrances, fixing the switch to open the door, lowering the slot to insert ticket/money and improving signage regarding what levels of the garage have accessible parking as well as improved evacuation information.

The Bagel Factory is a dining establishment in Squirrel Hill on Forbes Avenue serving breakfast and lunch sandwiches to a wide variety of consumers.
-Accessing the building is manageable, with very wide sidewalks, curb cuts at the crosswalk, and a 34” wide doorway with accessible handles to open. Once inside the Bagel Factory, the path to the ordering counter and pay counter is wide enough for a person in a wheelchair and another person passing (42-80”). All of the service counter space, including different areas where you order and pay for your food, is too high for a person in a wheelchair to receive service in a comfortable manner (42” high). A station for tea, water, and milk is positioned too high (64”) making it extremely difficult for a person in a wheelchair to access it independently. All of the tables and chairs in the seating areas are moveable, and there are openings at the end of tables for someone in a wheelchair to sit, although there are not spaces specifically for a person in a wheelchair.
-The bathroom is currently not handicap accessible, located in a small corner underneath the stairs along with some cooling racks, making it difficult to access. The door is not clearly marked on the latch side, however, there is Braille present for blind customers. While the door handle is able to be managed with a closed fist, the force required to open the door is greater than five pounds and the door swings inward, making it difficult for a person in a wheelchair to apply force and simultaneously maneuver into the bathroom. If the person received assistance from someone to open the door, the door frame is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair (33”). Once in the bathroom, it is wide enough to transport to the sink, but turning around in the bathroom is extremely difficult as the width between the two walls is only 44”. There is one stall inside the bathroom and it is doorless. The grab bars in the stall are not located the proper distance away from the toilet. It would not be possible for someone in a wheelchair to use the toilet and grab bars at their current location. Additionally, the toilet paper holder does not allow for continuous access, making it difficult to reach. When trying to exit the bathroom, there is not enough side space for a person in a wheelchair to approach the handle to open the door by him or herself.
-The back exit can be reached via a staircase and is not handicap accessible. There are no signs at the back entrance directing someone to the front handicap accessible entrance. There are enough handicap parking spaces available, although there are none directly in front of the building near the handicap entrance. There is one handicap parking space of appropriate size across the street, but it has no open space to the side. There are appropriate curb cuts at the crosswalk to get to the Bagel Factory. There are three handicap parking spaces in the back of the building, but the back entrance is not handicap accessible so they would have to take a longer route to the front entrance. There are no van accessible parking spaces near the Bagel Factory.

LaFleur’s is a safe bet for any meal if you’re in the area. Not too expensive, not fancy, not a roadhouse. Parking lot is unstriped, so there are no accessible spaces, but it’s very large. Entrance hallway is a tad narrow, but not horrible. Bathrooms are completely inaccessible - absurd even for an able-bodied person. It’s quite small, so if you’re headed to an event (Chamber of Commerce meeting, banquet, etc.), get there early so you’re not trying to get past anyone in the hallway.

Part of the Porter Square Mall, accessibility at this ice cream shop is good overall. There is accessible parking in the mall parking lot, including van-accessible parking. There is a step-free accessible entrance (although adding an automatic door opener would make it better), and good circulation inside. The serving counter is a bit on the high side.

The AbleRoad website and iOS and Android applications allow people with disabilities and medical conditions - including those who use a wheelchair or have other mobility, vision, hearing or cognitive disabilities - and their families and caregivers to review any public space or business.
Each review helps people with disabilities "to know before you go" the accessibility of a restaurant or business.
Accessibility is required by law, but we know that is not always the situation. Don't be caught by surprise. Know in advance whether a place is accessible for people with your disability.
