Another day in quarantine, another holiday we’re celebrating differently. We all managed to crush Easter and Passover, so Mother’s Day should be a breeze. I hope that with all of the brunch kits and takeout options around Pittsburgh, Mother’s Day brunch will be a fun celebration.
I seriously miss taking cute brunch pics in front of the neon sign at Lola’s. This Pittsburgh brunch spot has Mother’s Day pastry boxes and donut bouquets. Can you imagine dropping off a donut bouquet to your Mom this Mother’s Day? How cute! If you want to place an order, email firstname.lastname@example.org by May 8.
This Italian restaurant has created a Mother’s Day Brunch package that includes Lorraine or Asparagus-Chevre, Parmesan Potatoes, Little Gem Salad, ELEVEN’s Sticky Buns, and Croissants with butter & jam. According to their Instagram posts, it serves 4 for $60. Also, you can add on a mimosa kit! To place an order, call them at 412-408-3816 anytime through 12pm on Saturday, May 9, for pickup on Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day Bagel and Beignet Boxes are now available at Acorn! There are four different kits on their online menu that you can choose from with a variation of everything bagels, sesame bagels, onion, sea salt etc, some beignets, and even Mimosa Kits. (Also if you’re lucky enough to live within two miles, you can request free delivery.)
The other day, I ordered their brunch the other day. Guys, it was pouring rain, I waited outside for pickup, and honestly the first sip of a mimosa made me feel like it was pre-covid. Is that so bad? Anyway, the Vandal has a brunch menu that’s $24 per person and it includes your choice of drink, pastry and brunch entrée. You can also add mimosa kits to your order for $25. Place an order by emailing Emily@thevandalpgh.com with your selections and choose your preferred pick up time.
I have loved seeing all of the different kits that Mediterra has come up with since we’ve been in quarantine. I did try one of their pizza kits, and I can say that I’m not a great pizza maker and it still turned out perfect. For Mother’s Day, Mediterra Cafe is doing a Mother’s Day Brunch menu with quiche, chicken pot pie, charcuterie boards, sweet rolls, cookie kits, and more. If you’re interested in ordering, give them a call at (412) 740 – 7064 to place an order by Thursday, May 7. (Also, if you want to try one of their kits that they’ve posted about on social media, give them a call to place any of those orders.)
Bar Marco is still coming through with a $30 prix fixe menu (served family style) available for curbside pickup from 9am until noon on Sunday May 10th. On the menu is a Spring Vegetable Frittata with Peas, Asparagus and Ricotta, Baked French Toast with Strawberries and Mascarpone, Herb Roasted Potatoes with Chili Aioli, and House Bacon with Brown Sugar and Cardamom If you have questions, email them at infobarmarcopgh.com.
Would you rather have a mimosa flight or a bacon flight? If you’re mom is a bacon fan, this family style menu has the works with applewood, everything, sriracha, peppered, and candied bacon. Not to mention it comes with flapjacks, eggs, and fresh OJ.
Muddy Waters Oyster Bar is back for brunch! In Pre-Covid times, I’d continue telling you how much I love their incredible Bloody Mary Bar. For takeout, the brunch menu has fried chicken and biscuits with a savory sausage gravy, a biscuit sandwich, Po’Boy with the works and your choice of shrimp or oyster, beignets for dessert, and french fries.
Spoonwood Brewing created a family style brunch menu for Mother’s Day that includes a tomato, spinach, cheddar frittata, bacon, home fries, fruit salad, biscuits and gravy, and Belgian Waffles for upwards of $45. To place an order, call 412-833-0333 by 3:00 PM on Thursday, May 7.
The Pittsburgh Bottle Shop has a special Mother’s Day Brunch menu with casseroles, frittatas, and sandwiches. Even their bowls are on the menu. I’d love to try their Crispy Pork Belly bowl!
If you’ve been missing Social House 7, The Standard Market & Pint House, Steel Cactus, Ten Penny, Delanie’s Coffee, and Local Bar + Kitchen, they’ve come together on The Pittsburgh Food Hall’s site. On Sunday’s Delanie’s has mimosas!
The first time I went to 350° bakery for brunch, I was forever impressed. This bakery has honestly some of the best biscuits I’ve ever had, and I’ve lived in the South, so I think that says something. They have a pretty large variety of pastries, hand pies, and biscuits available on their site to pre-order for Mother’s Day brunch.
Okay, I know we all would rather be sitting on the gorgeous rainbow umbrella covered patio for Mother’s Day brunch, but quarantine. You can still order fresh crepes, eclairs, and sandwiches from Caffe Mona for takeout or delivery.
That’s the end of my list, but I guarantee there are a few more restaurants in Pittsburgh that have created a takeout brunch menu for Mother’s Day or will be open with a few brunch staples for delivery or takeout. I’d love to know which ones that I missed, so please add them in the comments.
I’ll also do my best to update you on my Instagram stories/posts as well, so be sure to follow me there if you aren’t already.
I hope you get to enjoy a lovely Mother’s Day brunch. Cheers!
