Sunday Afternoon Lunch in Pittsburgh Area

We are looking for a place to spend a Sunday afternoon this month for a birthday brunch, lunch or early dinner - about 5 people. We have a well-behaved 4-year-old son. We are willing to drive about an hour. Any ideas? Thanks!

  1. Don't know how upscale you're thinking, but here are a couple of options:
    --Cafe at the Frick (haven't been there yet, but have heard good things)
    --Sunnyledge (again, I've heard this is a good brunch place)
    --Coca Cafe (been here several times, low-key with great food, and a good family place).

    Good luck!

      Thank you for the suggestions - I forgot about the Frick - it is perfect!

        Try brunch at Nemacolin Woodlands. It's about an hours drive and the price is in the mid $30's pp and it's very worth it. It's a buffet but with small amounts of fresh food constantly being put out rather than giant trays sitting in steam tables for way too long. Before or after brunch it's really nice to walk around the place inside or outside. With the great weather we've been having you should have a very nice time. Be sure to make a reservation.

    2. Bistro 19 is relatively new in Mt. Lebanon, right on Washington Rd. Their sig brunch dish appears to be a Bananas Foster french toast. We've been for dinner and it's good bistro food.
