    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

    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 :)

    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

    Best breakfast Ive had outside of my house. I always add cheese to my homefries but they are great without it.

    Amazing crepe pancakes. No matter how you get them or what you get on them, you can't go wrong.

    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.

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