Where to do Sunday Brunch with Outdoor Seating in Pittsburgh

It’s hard to believe that fall is right around the corner, so it’s high time to take advantage of Pittsburgh’s beautiful outdoor restaurants with delicious brunch menus!

It seems like every day there’s a new rooftop bar or instagram-worthy patio with fancy cocktails. Here are just a few that have fabulous outdoor dining AND Sunday Brunch.

Over Eden

Lawrenceville

This opinion may be biased, Over Eden is a stunning rooftop bar for happy hour, but I think it’s even better for brunch! The restaurant is at the top of the TRYP Hotel and has outdoor seating with a beautiful view of the city and savory cast iron pancakes on the Sunday Brunch menu that are hard to beat.

Roland’s Seafood Grill

Strip District

What better way to enjoy a bloody mary and a lobster roll than on a spacious rooftop overlooking the Strip District. Roland’s has an extensive seafood menu and a variety of wood fired pizzas if that’s not your thing!

The Foundry

North Shore

Pre-Covid, Sunday Fundays were the best in the North Shore. If you’re bar hopping, The Foundry is a great place to start so you can enjoy their brunch menu and start drinking with a great Bloody Mary. While the weather’s nice, they have a beautiful patio with views of the Allegheny River.

The Biergarten

Downtown

The Biergarten on the rooftop of Hotel Monaco has fabulous views of the architecture downtown, a few green shrub walls for more photos, and an excellent weekend brunch menu. The brunch grilled cheese is like nothing I’ve seen before – ooey gooey gruyere cheese between sourdough bread topped with over easy eggs.

Farmer X Baker

Aspinwall

A short drive outside the city is a fabulous farm to table outdoor dining experience overlooking the Allegheny River. It can get a bit crowded, so be prepared to wait on a sunny day! The menu changes often, so be sure to check their Instagram for the most up to date information.

Coughlin’s Law

Mt. Washington

Several restaurants in Mt. Washington have a fabulous view but not all of them have a fabulous brunch menu. On the weekends, Coughlin’s Law’s brunch menu includes avocado tostadas, pancake boards, and carnitas benedict.

Pasha Cafe

Shadyside

Turkish Mediterranean food and a cute patio atmosphere to make for a splendid brunch. On the breakfast/brunch menu you’ll have to try the Turkish Breakfast dish – eggs scrambled with chopped tomatoes, onions, green and red peppers.

Caffe Mona

Bloomfield

I’d be remiss if I didn’t include Caffe Mona in this list of restaurants with outdoor seating for brunch. Choosing from a variety of crepes seated beneath the rainbow umbrella covered patio will make you feel like a brunch queen or king!
