Next time you’re looking for a new BYOB brunch location, take a walk down to 13th and Spring Garden Street to grab a seat at Bufad, a casual and rustic-chic restaurant known for their wood-oven pizzas. Many are familiar with stopping by its sister restaurant, Cafe Lift for brunch, however only a short walk down the block guests can enjoy indoor and outdoor seating while dining on authentic Neopolitan wood-fired pizza and classic brunch dishes made with Roman al taglio pizza.
The restaurants name comes from an Italian-American slang “l’abbuffata” meaning the feast. Whether dining in or taking out, diners can enjoy everything from Southern Italian antipasti, to small plates, pizzas and desserts, just like Nonna would make. Since opening in 2013, all their dishes have been made with the freshest local ingredients.
Some of the many things we love about brunch at Bufad is that you can BYOB, make reservations on OpenTable, and pay with credit card. That being said, lets get to the food. We started off our meal with some fresh squeezed orange juice and Eggs In Purgatory made in a cast iron skillet filled with spicy marinara sauce, spaghetti squash, ricotta, and two farm eggs baked hot in their wood fired oven.
