    We travel and eat a lot! local family insisted we go here for bfast. The strawberry hot cakes are incredible! Lyonnaise potatoes I could eat daily, as I think they are seasoned with magic :)

    The ultimate breakfast spot in Pittsburgh. Make sure to check out their hotcakes (a favorite of President Obama). Also, remember to get there early and bring cash.- Mandy, Marketing Coordinator

    Pamela's is the best breakfast I've had in any city. Banana chocolate chip hotcakes are unbeatable.

    Everything is good here! They are known for their crepe-style pancakes with the crunchy edges, very good! I like to order as a team & share

    Those crepe/pancake things are definitely worth the hype. Order some protein with them so you don't do too much of an insulin spike.

    There are basically no vegan options. But, if you eat eggs the omelettes are amazing and come with the best potatoes you'll ever eat. Don't plan on eating for the rest of the day
