A couple months ago The Grange Community Kitchen announced that they were going to shift their Tuesday daytime hours to Sundays. At which point, the Sunday brunch game in WNY changed. With Em Savage on the pastry line baking ALL of the delicious carbs and treats in the sweets case, and the kitchen crew slaying it on the line, there’s really no way to go wrong here.
The breakfast options are offered all day, and lunch options are added to the bill from 11 am until 2:30. The Grange almost always has a special running, and it’s enticing 100% of the time. Beer and wine are available for purchase, as well as Bloody Mary’s and mimosas. 🙌 For breakfast, you can go easy on yourself and enjoy a summer grain bowl, toast, or yogurt and granola; or you can indulge in one of their breakfast sandwiches or pastrami hash.
I am rarely up or eating before 11am on a Sunday, but a quick trip to Pittsburgh on a Sunday called for an “early” stop at The Grange to fuel up. I got the canadian bacon breakfast sandwich on an english muffin, which also has cheddar, maple dijonnaise and a fried egg on it for good measure. My partner in crime got the sausage on a biscuit with cheddar, charred pepper mayo and a fried egg. We shared the crispy potatoes. Both sandwiches were excellent – simple yet classed up with the sauces. And the crispy potatoes? Well, they’re on all of The Grange menus and you just can’t pass them up once you’ve had them.
On a separate, exclusively “brunch” visit, we went all out and got both of the specials, a breakfast sandwich, the kale Caesar salad, and a couple pastries. The specials included a brunch burger (the Grange’s amazing burger with the addition of an egg) and a ham a spring vegetable pizzetta with calabrian chili and mozzarella.
I’m always amazed by The Grange’s ability to take food that you can find elsewhere and make it taste SO. MUCH. BETTER. It’s a true ode to locally sourcing your food. Call me bougie, but at this point I avoid certain foods unless I’m at certain places because I know that I won’t feel good after eating them. Take, for example, sausage. Sausage from anywhere that doesn’t locally source their meat will definitely make me feel lethargic and give me a stomach ache. So I save this wonderful treat for restaurants such as The Grange.
If you’re going to The Grange on a Sunday, I’d recommend getting there after 11 am so your choices expand into the lunch options. The current lunch menu includes a rotating soup, their famous hummus bowl, fried chicken salad, Caesar salad, grilled cheese and tomato soup, double cheeseburger, housemade pastrami on rye, and four pizzas. Bon appetit!
Oh, and the bloody mary is KILLER. Cheers to Grange Sundays, fam.
