Choosing a database for Yelp-like app (including location-based search)

I’m torn between Mongo and Postgres for a search-based app. All the data fits into a relational db, and postgreshas geospatial capability with postgis. Personally I’m far more comfortable with sql, so postgres seems like the best choice. However, I’d like to get some opinions.

What are the pros and cons? How well does meteor with with postgres at this point? Are there search packages that could be used with it?
