Food was absolutely delicious! We had the K-town Guac, Steak and eggs and the Stuffed French Toast from the brunch menu. All the food was well seasoned and tasty. The service was quick and great as well. Thank you so much for a great Sunday brunch.

An innovative menu with enough choices to please anyone. The Gambas al Ajillo (garlic shrimp) is a must have. I can't list everything that's so tasty - because it all is.
Thanks to Emmanuel for excellent, attentive service.

I recommend the barbecue pork and the croquetas are also pretty good. There is a nice ambiance and good service. Although, surprised with the price of two cortaditos, almost $10, overpriced in my opinion.

I'm in love with Pinch! The place and style of the restaurant is beautiful, it's literally like a little house with succulents by the windows and different chairs and tables. We were 2 people and we started with the Pinch salad, it was delicious and a really good amount. The dressing was citrus based and definitely they used some Dijon mustard because I could see the little seeds and it was perfect! Since we went around 12.30pm, we ordered some scrambled eggs with potatoes and an Impossible vegan burger. The eggs were fresh and the potatoes were baked with a delicious seasoning. The burger was delicious, it came with a pretzel bun, an avocado based sauce and some shoestring potatoes paired with French fries. We also ordered some drinks, and they were so good we had to go for three rounds. We had some classic mojitos and the basil lemonade which was made with vodka, both of them were refreshing. For the desert, we picked the tres leches panna cotta and it was the right amount of sugar. The panna cotta came with a vanilla ice cream scoop and some graham cookie crumbles around it. So overall, the place was delicious and I can't wait to come back and try some other dishes and drinks!

Reservations for Sunday brunch are a must. We arrived at 2pm and the place was packed, inside was very loud, outdoors at the covered patio it was quiet but hot, fans are not enough to be breezy. We ordered focaccia, guacamole & tortillas, egg Benedict’s and tagliatelle bolognesa. Server was super nice and food was well done. Size was good as well. Parking at the back was packed but we waited a few minutes until someone left premises.

Great service and food at Pinch. We tried the vegetable soup (butternut squash) that was AMAZING. This was probably my favorite thing but this soup is my usual go to and it was exquisite here. We also had the gambas al ajillo that were cooked excellently and a full round of pincho burgers for everyone at the table. Burgers were packed with flavors and VERY filling. It’s a huge burger so order if you are famished! Will be back again to try their french toast. I had this silly thought that we could order it for dessert to share BUT…if you ever make it to Pinch and get to see the French toast, you’ll understand why my great idea was not possible! The French toast is certainly not your typical serving.

Recommendation of the day: Pinch burger.
This has to be one of THE best burgers in the entire city, if not the world.
Bon appetit!

We have always loved Pinch Kitchen. Quality has only gotten better over the years with baking in house and the addition of outdoor seating, a full bar and a great cocktail menu. Diverse food menu and everything is executed to perfection. Service is old school, honest, fun and considered. Seriously great food that you can tell comes from the heart and the wonderful service and ambiance make Pinch Kitchen one of our favorite places to reward ourselves.

Pinch is so welcoming and has a laid back and eclectic vibe. The best part of Pinch are the folks who work there -- each one was amazing. Service was so friendly and quick. The cocktails were absolutely terrific. My husband and son loved their burgers. The appetizer salad and wings were really terrific (and huge). I could barely touch my main plate when it came. I'm definitely going back. I love the idea of supporting a small business that obviously cares so much about their customers. Thank you, Pinch!

I never rate any restaurant, I was there before and had lovely food and excellent service. It is a shame, that this time I was so disappointed, made reservations for outside seating, not sat, sat inside in a very disturbing loud section, asked to please find seating
outside, no again. Water was served, then waited and waited, until we got up and left.
So sad.

My fiancé and I chose this place because the brunch options, well it turned out amazing. The food was great, the ambiance is nice and cozy, and the staff were super nice. Everyone helped each other. Nothing but great things to say about the restaurant. My fiancé was excited to go back before we even left. I can't forget to mention that the drinks were great as well. We are so glad we decided to give it a try. 😁
