The Best Brunch Restaurants in Pittsburgh

The OpenTable Team

While a melting pot of business professionals, hipsters, and travel enthusiasts now sit down for the best brunches in Pittsburgh, the city got its culinary diversity from the steel industry. The burgeoning field brought workers from the world over – everywhere from the Deep South to Italy – whose unique tastes indelibly shaped the area’s food scene. But when it comes to finding the best brunch in the area, which establishments do the savviest diners enjoy becoming regulars? Welcome to TasteMaker20. We’ve gathered droves of data from thousands of restaurants across the country to discover where OpenTable’s most discerning users like to sit down for a meal. While culinary options like the charred-but-nearly-raw Pittsburgh rare steak and salads covered in French fries might grab most people’s attention, it’s the variety of choices available that keep them coming back. Check out these irresistible eateries and book a table for a relaxing brunch today!
