    Good gracious those crepe hotcakes are the bomb! Super buttery, so if you're not in the mood for savory I'd recommend the French toast. Service can be spotty (like any diner), but they're friendly!

    This is the place to start on any search for a delicious breakfast in Pittsburgh. Six locations show the success of this diner and its excellent Hotcakes. Try the strawberry or blueberry.

    Hotcakes and crepes in all kinds of fancy flavors like chocolate chip banana. They also serve lunch and most items are <$10. This place has won awards, so try it out. Read more

    Great tiny diner with signature crepe style pancakes, good diner coffee, eggs and bacon were lackluster, but I like this spot!

    Best corned-beef hash I've ever had. Great breakfasts all around. This one is always a crowd pleaser. Hit the ATM before you go; Pamela's is cash only.

    The entrees were great, sides so-so and waiter HORRIBLE (not sure what his name was because he didn't tell us) the Squirrel Hill location was much better!

    While you're waiting for your table, go across the street & grab a beverage @ Coffee Tree Roasters. Voted best coffee shop in the Burgh.

    Chocolate chip banana hotcakes are great, can easily split with 1 or 2 others.
