Brunch at the Frick, Pittsburgh

Frick Park is the largest park in the city of Pittsburgh. If you are not familiar with the industrialist and art collector, Henry Clay Frick, then you may be familiar with the pop culture reference and recognize the 'Frick Park' name from Pittsburgh rapper, Mac Miller's song, Frick Park Market... a market right down the street from the park. Frick Park is also home to 'Blue slide park' which is where Mac Miller got the name for his album. Right off the grounds of Frick Park, there is 'The Frick'. It was home to the Frick family in the early 1900's and is now a museum. It's a great place to spend the day exploring. It's very picturesque and charming and a fabulous venue to host an event (think lots of tents). 

I went to the Frick's Cafe one Sunday morning to have brunch with my friend from high school, Katie. She is getting her PhD in Biochemistry at Pitt, so she is quite busy, but it's fun to catch up with her when our schedules allow! The Frick is a great place for brunch. It's quite small, so it's best to make a reservation (side note: only members can make reservations. Membership is $55 or just $15 for student!). We hadn't made a res, but luckily, there was a spot for us! I had the smoked salmon omelette. Yum! 

Katie and I are already counting down the days to warmer weather so we can enjoy the gorgeous patio. They have tea service so it will be so lovely to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather with some delicious tea and scones. Have you visited the Frick? Have a fabulous day!

I cannot believe I have yet to go to the Frick Café, looks adorable! I need to check this place out once it warms up a bit so I can walk around.
