I considered skipping over the last photos of my latest Pittsburgh trip and getting to a day-to-night fashion post I’ve had queued up for a bit. I don’t know if anyone will ever use this post on some future trip to Pittsburgh (or even if a local may find it helpful), but I sometimes shoot to help the one or two out there. I dunno…why not, right? Also, I was really so impressed with my breakfast at Bluebird Kitchen, I had to share.
I stayed at a different hotel this trip (the last one had two quick options right downstairs), and all the food options for this one seemed like they were several blocks away. I did a Yelp map search looking for something close and noticed Bluebird Kitchen, one of the places I scoped out on my first trip, was actually not terribly far away. I set out sans coffee (err) to find the restaurant, breakfast, and caffeine.
You guys know I love eggs in the morning, so I planned on getting the frittata, which I saw on their online menu. I was really excited when I walked up to the specials board and saw a quiche option. Ham? Yes! Cheddar? Yes! Arugula? Yes!
I had checked out the baked goods the day before when I was there for lunch and thought the muffins and scones looked especially good.
I ended up picking the lemon blueberry muffin.
The muffin was delicious with large, plump blueberries inside and a crunchy sugar topping.
And the quiche was deceptively small. I remember opening the box and thinking, “Aww, how cute is this tiny quiche?” But, it wasn’t really that tiny, and it was definitely filling. I loved the combo of ham and cheddar cheese and thought the arugula was a nice touch. I’d definitely get this (and the muffin!) again. I wonder if they have a quiche of the day, perhaps?
I thought about eating al fresco at this sunny square, but I had to go back to my hotel room to prepare for a meeting. Maybe I’ll check it out some other time?
