Can you find a breakfast burrito in Pittsburgh?

Answer: Sort of. There are some breakfast burrito options, but not many are available before 11 a.m.

Many years ago, I was at a farmers market in Ithaca, New York, and I think that is where I had my first breakfast burrito. Since that day, I’ve been in search of breakfast burritos. (By the way, the Ithaca Farmers Market has an amazing pavilion and real bathrooms! I hope we could see a space like this in Pittsburgh someday.)

Last year, we published a story on the search for a breakfast sandwich in Pittsburgh. It was so popular that we had to publish a second list of breakfast sandwiches. (And I know there are more breakfast sandwiches that we haven’t covered yet!)

We also published a guide to finding a burrito in Pittsburgh where we looked at 28 different options for burritos. But what about the breakfast burrito? It is time we put together a guide to breakfast burritos in Pittsburgh. I’ve searched high and low and online. I’ve read comments and Yelp reviews. (A huge thank you to all of the folks on the Pittsburgh subreddit who have discussed breakfast burritos.)

Here is a list of where you can find a breakfast burrito in Pittsburgh. The list is divided into two sections, places that always have breakfast burritos and places that sometimes have breakfast burritos, but not always.

What is not on the list: diners. Yes, most of Pittsburgh’s diners do offer burritos, but the breakfast burrito aficionados have noted that the diners aren’t even close to a real breakfast burrito. (If you are looking for some diners to check out, we have a list of 5 diners that offer takeout.)

Breakfast burritos are sometimes on the menu

The following restaurants have been known to serve breakfast burritos, but it is not something that is ALWAYS on the menu.

  • Smoke Taqueria // Lawrenceville
  • Brassero Grill // Braddock
  • Baby Loves Tacos // Bloomfield & Millvale – Baby Loves Tacos does have breakfast burritos, just not every day. They have also held several breakfast burrito pop-ups at KLVN Coffee in Larimer. (Here is our story on the opening of KLVN Coffee.) If you see a Baby Loves Tacos breakfast burrito event, be sure to go early as they always sell out.

What about Sheetz & GetGo?

Yes, you can order a breakfast burrito at both Sheetz and GetGo. You can order online or from the app and pick up at the nearest store. You can use Grubhub to have Sheetz delivered to your door.

It’s 8:30 a.m. on a weekday, can I get a breakfast burrito delivered?

Yes. You have a few options.

  • Commonplace Coffee – the delivery minimum is $10
  • Square Cafe

If you are desperate and located outside of the delivery area for Commonplace Coffee and Square Cafe, you can order a breakfast burrito from Sheetz.
