As Pittsburgh’s restaurant scene has slowly but surely grown more mature over the past few years, its exceptional brunch choices have multiplied exponentially. These five restaurants are known for serving the best brunch in town:
1. The Grand Concourse. With its historic, old-money ambiance, the Grand Concourse at Station Square has been serving a luxurious and locally-famous classic brunch for well over a decade. Located in the old Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad Station, it also offers a kids menu and an omelet bar. (Reservations recommended.)
2. Casbah. For an especially non-traditional brunch, try Mediterranean-flavored Casbah, where patio seating is available during the warmer months. Try the braised lamb and eggs, or the mushroom and goat cheese omelet.
3. Kaya. At the Caribbean-influenced Kaya, delectable island fare such as conch fritters and Jamaican jerk wings are often featured on the brunch menu, which changes weekly. On a typical Sunday, however, everything from Cuban sandwiches to huevos rancheros are available for the adventurous gourmand.
4. The Quiet Storm Cafe. For a relatively relaxed and unusual brunch experience, try the Quiet Storm, a hip vegetarian and vegan cafe where many of your fellow diners are likely to be tattooed and pierced. Brunch options usually include frittatas, a Tex-Mex egg scramble, and a locally-famous breakfast burrito. The Fair Trade coffee is exceptional.
5. Point Brugge. To enjoy the best of both brunch worlds, seek out Point Brugge, where classic Belgian and American dishes are served in surroundings that are both trendy and welcoming. (Order the waffles.)
