I don’t care what anyone says, Brunch is the best meal of the day! It’s a cross between that sweet sensation breakfast has to offer and that savory goodness lunch provides. It truly is the best of both worlds!! Brunch originated in England in the late 1800s, served in a buffet style manner, and became popular in the United States in the 1930s. Today, brunch is becoming more popular and is no longer just used as the meal for special occasions like Mother's Day or Easter Sunday. If I could, I would eat it every day! Check out my choices of some of the best brunches in Pittsburgh.
Sweet Peaches is located at 639 E. Warrington Ave. in Allentown. Owner and Chef Bek Hlavach changes the Brunch menu each week, depending on what fresh ingredients she has. No matter what, it's always delicious. One of my favorite items is the French toast with pineapple and pear compote, topped with fresh whipped cream. Brunch is served Sundays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and always includes a few appetizers, an array of main dishes and fresh made juices and...it's BYOB!!! If you want something homemade, without cooking yourself, check this place out. If you have a party of 2 or more people, reservations are recommended. Please call 412-219-3121.
Don't we all deserve a piece of the "Good Life"? Well, Savoy in the Strip District, wants you to experience it.
