B52 Restaurant Pittsburgh



Steel City vegan food worth the drive...

Last week, I went on a little road trip with my mom and my sister to Pittsburgh. My sister, being a huge Penguins fan, bought tickets to a fan event celebrating their Stanley Cup win and my mom took on the task of driving the 5 hours there and and 5 hours back. I basically just went along for the ride and, being the opportunist that I am, took this as a chance to check out a nice Steel City vegan restaurant. After an extensive google search, I found B52 and I'm so glad I did.


We had about an hour in between events to eat so we didn't have much time to get lost (like we usually do) in the middle of Pittsburgh. After I realized it was on the corner of Butler and 52nd, hence the name B52, it was pretty easy to find, and that's coming from someone who's never even been remotely close to Pittsburgh until that moment.



We were able to make it for Sunday brunch, and let me tell you, this Sunday brunch was the best Sunday brunch I've ever had. I ordered the Tofu Scramble with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, which were both incredible. I still think about the latkes and the kale on occasion, they were that good. And that's not even mentioning the tofu scramble. I could never understand how people are able to make tofu the consistency of eggs, but they somehow do and B52 does it well.

My mom got the Kofta Tofu Scramble with a Sassafras Soda and my sister got the Thick Cut Toast with Raspberry Preserve with a Vanilla Latte (the thick cut toast comes with one whole slice, not half like pictured, my sister couldn't wait to eat it). It's important to keep in mind, both of them are very much not vegan and they both loved their brunch as much as me, maybe even more.





Though I didn't have enough time to thoroughly check out their dessert section, I was able to get a quick picture of a spread from behind the counter. I'm definitely mentally planning another trip to Pittsburgh with a bit more time to enjoy the sites, more vegan restaurants, and that dessert in the future.
