I'm also from Pittsburgh, although I currently live in California. I just went back to the Burg to visit some friends/family, and this is where I dined. I went to Kaya in the Strip District. They have some great vegetarian dishes, and were willing to make a few changes to make them vegan. I didn't go to this restaurant, but I think it's called Southside Grill? It's obviously on the southside, and I heard they also have vegan options. I went to Happycow.com and found the names of two cafes also. There are definitely options, but it does take some searching.
First, may I saw Pittsburgh is a great city. Also it is super easy to be vegetarian and vegan there. There is a huge whole foods in the highland park area, a trader joes and a market district(organic and whole foods store, slightly pricey tho). THere is a also a co-op in the east end called east end co-op. As for restaurants, in the laurcenville/garfield area there is a vegeterian/ vegan shop called quiet storm.. Oakland has a ton of indian restaurants(i.e. india star, india graden). If you are lookingi for thai a good place is the green mango located in monroeville and edgewood. There are tons of options also be sure to download the Happy cow app on your phone.
