The editors of Travel + Leisure have named Mt. Lebanon among the 25 "Coolest Suburbs Worth a Visit." The article, out this month, includes a picture of the facade of Washington Road's Uptown Coffee.
A quote from the article in Travel: "Part of this town's allure is the friendly vibe and proximity to Downtown Pittsburgh, six miles away . . .

Among the other notable communities are Evanston, Ill., La Jolla, Calif. and The Woodlands, Texas.
