We live for a good brunch (see here and here). But, real talk? Saturdays deserve brunch dates, too. We’ve rounded up a bunch of restaurants where you can get your brunch fix on a Saturday. Yes, some of them consider it “breakfast”, but we think if it’s a meal you’re eating before dinner on the weekend, you can call it brunch 😉
We love Pipers, and that includes their brunch. Especially their boxty – it’s basically a giant potato pancake filled with anything from sloppy joe to buffalo chicken. Their chicken and waffles are also to die for, but you can’t go wrong no matter what you order.
Double Wide Grill
If you’re looking for a menu with a variety of options, including vegan dishes, Double Wide has you covered. Not only do they have something for everyone, but their portions are generous and you certainly won’t leave hungry!
Carson Street Deli
Did you hear the news? Carson Street Deli is serving breakfast sandwiches now! We can’t get enough of their sandwiches, and we are thrilled that we can eat them for brunch, too.
The brunch menu at Bar Marco might be small, but it’s mighty. And it rotates, so you can still eat something different every time you go if that’s your thing. We’re currently eyeing up the prosciutto toast and fried zucchini benni if you want to go halvesies with us?
Not only does Bigham Tavern offer Saturday brunch, they have a special Saturday brunch menu separate from their Sunday Funday menu. They have some fun dishes that really embrace the whole breakfast + lunch idea – like mac and cheese scrambled eggs or pot roast served over home fries with an over easy egg on top.
Meat and Potatoes
If you think brunch should include a stunning Bloody Mary bar, well, we happen to agree. Lucky for all of us, so does Meat and Potatoes. And they have a cinnamon bun the size of a plate so…we’ll meet you there on Saturday?
Confession bear: we haven’t eaten at NU yet. But, we absolutely can’t wait to go after reading their website. It’s one price for an entree and “nosh and nibble” table, and everything is made from scratch. Like they say, it’s homemade but better than brunch at home because they cook and clean!
Round Corner Cantina
Sometimes you just want Mexican food for brunch, and Round Corner Cantina is coming to the rescue. Churros and bacon, chilaquiles, and breakfast burrito? Yes, please! All that’s missing is the marg…oh wait, they have those, too.
Brunching at Federal Galley is a beautiful thing. There’s a bar and four restaurants, an all of them serve a variety of brunch dishes so everyone in your group can get whatever their heart desires. The worst part is settling on just one dish…unless you all decide to share. In which case you should count us in!
When we first looked at The Vandal’s brunch menu, we read off every dish we wanted to try…and it was legitimately all of them. So, we’ll be there every Saturday (and okay, maybe Sunday) until we try them all. Who else is up for the challenge?
Pie for Breakfast
Come on – it’s called “pie for breakfast” so do we even need to say anything else? Get your eggs and pancakes and biscuits, and follow that up with a slice of pie, and we call that a darn good brunch.
If you’re on Instagram, chances are good you’ve seen someone post a pic from their breakfast at Mediterra. We’re considering it brunch because it’s the weekend (see the article intro) but we’ll eat there no matter what they’re calling their meals.
We know we just talked about Acorn, but we had to mention it again. Seriously – with pancakes as tall as biscuits, how could we not? And don’t even get us started on their actual biscuits…
If a restaurant (ahem, Union Standard) offers a brunch prix fixe menu, you basically have to order it. Because let’s be honest, we’re going to order a cocktail with our entree, so we might as well get an appetizer while we’re at it. Especially after you take one look at Union Standard’s menu.
Or, The Whale
or, The Whale has all of your brunch needs covered. Seafood? Check. Non-seafood? Check. Pastry board? Check. We aren’t totally sure what comes on a pastry board, but we think we’re about to find out…This content was provided by a local, independent contributor to Made in PGH, a lifestyle blog.
