A few friends and family members stopped here for lunch after a visit to the Frick Museum. What a nice surprise! The menu is unusual - and I wasn't sure what to try - so I ordered the Linguine with Lemon Basil Pesto sauce. It was so good that I didn't stop until it was gone! (And couldn't eat another... More

Hidden gem in a residential neighborhood of Point Breeze, This quaint café offers a nice selection of lunch options. Our party had the grilled Chicken salad with warm goat cheese, butternut cream soup, grilled chicken baguette. All were excellent choices along with the European atmosphere made for a memorable meal.

A casual fun spot with great beer, and cuisine. Located on a lovely street with very good food and good prices. A bit loud but the apps are well priced and delicious. Mains are varied with good presentation and oh so good! Service is good as well. Very nice place.

A friend and I decided to check this place out for Sunday brunch after the Pittsburgh half-marathon. The cafe is quite small, so as expected the wait was lengthy for tables. We actually opted for bar seating as it was immediately available. Despite being incredibly busy the bartender was very nice and personable. The two of us split the brisket... More

Just had the most delicious thing at this small, friendly neighborhood cafe, which is off the beaten track in Pittsburgh's charming Point Breeze area. The item was a flat bread with a carrot-ginger puree, creme fraiche, fresh berries and watercress. OMG so good! And unusual. My hubby had the daily special of seared scallops over a warm watercress salad and... More

Point Brugge Cafe is in a great little part of town and has a casual atmosphere. You can smell the food as you walk along the street....mmmm, so we didn't mind waiting to be seated. The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the whole experience was excellent! Anxious to return again :)

Was in Pittsburgh visiting family, and my sister-in-law (a local) recommended Point Brugge. Fantastic evening, from the moment we stepped inside. Good beer selection. Accommodating staff that put together a table for our crowd of seven. But be warned it's a small restaurant which doesn't take reservations, so you'll likely wait to be seated. (We arrived early -- about 5:45... More

Quiet neighborhood. Friendly waitstaff. Delicious mussels! 4 draft beers on tap. Extensive bottle offerings. Not a lot of room to wait.

We've been here before with friends and I just took my visiting sister here for lunch. Quaint, great atmosphere, superb food, great variety (and healthy!). Perfect place before or after a hike in Frick Park! It is small so during peak hours there may be a wait. They do have tables outside and the front wall opens to bring the... More

We stopped in after deciding an hour wait was too long elsewhere and were nicely surprised. The wait for 2 was only about half an hour (7pm on Friday night) but we were able to grab two seats at the bar. I wish there would have been a larger draft list, but they only had 4 taps at their tiny... More
