D&T : in the burgh

Pittsburgh Restaurant Scene

Marty’s Market

If D and I had the money, we would live in the Strip District, there are so many new places and old favorites in walking distance, sadly, that is not in the cards for us, until we win the Powerball. Fingers crossed!

Marty’s Market has been around for a few years now in the former Right By Nature store. We have walked around the store a few times while cruising the Strip but have never stopped to shop. We have experienced brunch here a few times now and have really enjoyed it.

They have a great espresso bar, which is always a huge plus with us. We aren’t standard coffee drinkers, espresso though, yes please! The one thing we really like about Marty’s is how wide open the whole space is, no walls except the exterior. The floors are stained concrete, most of the walls are windowed, a few garage doors open to let in the fresh air on the café side. On nice weather days you can dine outside or saddle up to the espresso bar.

The food here is pretty standard fare, nothing you haven’t seen before. I went with the standard breakfast, 2 eggs, potatoes, toast and choice of bacon or sausage.

De went with the short stack of pancakes and a side of potatoes. I will say the breakfast potatoes here are excellent, a mix of crispy and fluffy pieces of taters with onions and peppers. The Kenyan café hot sauce on the table goes great with the eggs and potatoes.

It’s fun to just sit and watch the cooks in the open kitchen or the barista’s at the espresso bar, especially during a busy brunch rush. If waiting an hour for a table at Pamela’s or DeLuca’s doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, check out the Café @ Marty’s. You won’t be disappointed with the decision.
