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.

Coffee Tree Roasters is a local, family-owned coffee shop located in the East End of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Nestled near the front entrance of Bakery Square Shopping Center, Coffee Tree Roasters is a perfect place for students to work on assignments, businessmen to settle a deal, or families and friends to relax and enjoy each other’s company. This coffee shop serves a wide variety of hot drinks, iced drinks, and delicious snacks. The company also provides free wi-fi and has inside and outside seating options. The store opens early at 5:30 AM to help individuals start their day and remains open late until 10:00 PM to fuel the night owls. There are two handicap parking spots located next to Coffee Tree Roasters. These parking spots are not van accessible, but there is an access aisle separating the two spots. There is a third handicap parking spot, but it is located further from the entrance. The handicap parking spots are accurately labeled with signs and paint on the spots using the universal symbol of accessibility. The parking spots are located directly across from the sidewalk with a curb ramp. This curb ramp is easily accessible to maneuver a wheelchair onto the landing, which leads to the entrance of the Coffee Tree Roasters. In summary, Coffee Tree Roasters is the perfect place for everyone to get a daily coffee fix. For individuals with disabilities, accessing the coffee shop is rather easy. This facility has adequate parking spots that meet the majority of ADA requirements. Once parked in the accessible parking space, the pathway to the entrance is clear with a curb cutout for easy wheelchair access. Upon reaching the front entrance, individuals with disabilities are faced with a large door with a grab handle that opens out. Although this may be rather difficult, the door slowly closely allowing for easier access. Once inside, the ordering counters and tables are appropriate heights to successfully order and enjoy a beverage of choice. If necessary, the individual men and women’s restrooms abide by ADA regulations for easy use and access. Public telephones and drinking fountains are not available. Recommendations to improve the accessibility of this facility include installation of an automatic entrance door, lowering of coat hooks in the restroom, additional handicap accessible parking spots, automatic soap dispensers in the restroom, and eliminate the use of key requirement to access the restroom.

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.

Although access is very good, wheelchair users are treated like second class citizens paying full price for the worst seats in the house, stuck in the outside aisles.

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.
