Pie for Breakfast, a pie-based breakfast restaurant (as you probably guessed), is preparing to open in 2017. The official location will be at 200 North Craig Street in Pittsburgh and an official date has not been set at this point.
Pie for Breakfast will be the third restaurant owned by the Good Faith Restaurant Group. The group also owns Legume and Butterjoint and is known for their healthy food made from wholesome ingredients, mostly sourced from family-owned farms from western PA.
The group notes “we have good faith that by continuing to put quality food and people first, our mission can continue to thrive and grow in Pittsburgh for many years to come.”
Trevett Hooper, the lead-chef and co-owner of Pie for Breakfast, said the inspiration for his new restaurant came from his own experiences on family vacations.
“Pie For Breakfast is the restaurant I’m always searching for when I’m on the road with my family: simple regional cooking, made from scratch, with unprocessed ingredients. Pie For Breakfast is how I imagine an American country restaurant might have been before WWII, before our food system was on the fast track to hyper-industrialization, when short-order cooking was highly skilled, and a simple restaurant could afford to make a great deal of their food from scratch.”
Pie for Breakfast will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner when they open. The restaurant also noted that they would be sourcing the same high-quality foods found in Legume, with an emphasis on sourcing high quality, natural ingredients.
