My wife and I eat and drink at PB nearly every other week. It is a gem in the quiet Point Breeze neighborhood. They are known for their mussels and as far as I am concerned, the only place in Pgh to get them. Great staff. Always a good beer list and consistently good food. Just be prepared to wait... More

The food was wonderful, and so was the service. Lucky, we didn't have to wait long for a table. It was a slow day.

I had friends telling me about this place for months! And yet I put it off for some reason. Maybe because it's far from my home. Or just maybe I couldn't believe mussels could rise to the level of praise I was hearing. When two of my friends insisted on taking me there when my husband was out of the... More

We have been the Cafe Brugge a number of times and each time I end up having the mussels. We don't go to this restaurant as often as I would like but only because there is frequently a long wait for a table. Their mussels in coconut broth is wonderful with really plump tasty mussels. But what I eat first... More

While visiting our son in Pittsburgh, we visited this nice neighborhood restaurant in Point Breeze. We were able to sit at an outside table on a lovely evening. Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. Excellent selection of Belgian beers. The house specialty is moules (mussels) and definitely would recommend. We had the classic sauce and it was excellent. Enjoyed the ambience... More

The place is compact, so if you want a table for Sunday Brunch, you have to arrive when they open or you will have a long wait. We arrived less than 10 minutes after they opened and got one of the last tables outside. They have a great selection of Belgian beers, which we enjoyed. We also enjoyed the Belgian... More

Found this by chance, while visiting Reynold's st shops in Point Breeze area of Pittsburgh. It's a little corner cafe, very unpretentious, quite charming. Their specialty is the the moules (mussels) in various sauces. Curry is the favorite, but I also liked the classic. Comes with frites (fries, but waaay better than most restaurant ones). I saw other interesting dishes... More

Point Brugge is located in a residential neighborhood and seems to have a loyal following. Parking is relatively easy to find and the restaurant is also fairly easy to find. They do not take reservations so if you are going on a Saturday night, go early. We went about 7:00pm and waited about 45 minutes. We heard the hostess telling... More

A small out of the way restaurant with a changing menu. The mussels are the speciality of the house and everyone orders them. Be sure and save room for the sinfully delicious desserts. A very large selection of European beers and unusual drinks.
