Postgres supports BSON/JSON datatype in later versions so Mongo is not needed for even that.

Epic! 😂

But then, once the data set gets too large, does it perform the same or better? What about map/reduce pipelines, as some comments have pointed out?

Mongo does have an easy way of sharding and clustering. Earlier versions of Mongo suffered from unreliability during network partitions but they have improved it.

There are Postgres extensions which do the same. It depends on what you are doing with the data though. For example, for many simple queries in Postgres you need to write separate application code to retrieve from Mongo, thus necessitating more nodes for the same task.
