The long-awaited Pie for Breakfast is officially open.
Starting today, the all-day cafe in Oakland will be open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, perfect for morning, noon and night dining, whenever you’d like a bite to eat.
From the owners of Legume Bistro and the Butterjoint (which are located right next to PFB), the restaurant will feature elements of what makes those restaurants so special – house-made specialties like kimchi, rhubarb chutney and sauerkraut have a place on the menu, along with diner classics like fried eggs, hash browns, and fluffy pancakes.
The dinner menu will rotate options regularly, but expect hearty, home-style dishes with a twist, like Pork Chops, Polish Stuffed Cabbage, and and Arctic Char served with a cucumber-yogurt sauce.
The restaurant will also feature a full bar with beer, wine and a stellar cocktail menu (and house-made ginger beer), plus Prosecco on draft. They also offer grab-and-go coffee and espresso (and bottomless cups of coffee for in-house diners), and six-packs of beer to go.
And of course, there will be pie. Pastry Chef Robin Cumpston will be churning out homemade pie daily, including a soon-to-be classic vinegar pie (seriously, if it’s on the menu, you must order it), peach pie, lemon pie, blueberry pie and more. They also will have a full selection of other desserts, including puddings, cookies, and bars.
After today, the restaurant’s summer hours kick in, and Pie for Breakfast will be open on Wednesdays through Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., serving breakfast only on that day. Also note that the kitchen will be closed daily from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., but guests can still get coffee, drinks and pastries.
