Been going here for years

Jarod doesn't eat here. Typical old school "neighborhood joint" . Every body seems to know everybody, staff is friendly and entertaining! Not a better breakfast to be had within miles. Can not order the wrong thing, it is all great. Burgers are even better. I wish they did dinners....

I love going to Gab & Eat whenever I am in the Carnegie area. All the waitress are so friendly. The food is always hot and fresh and made to order. The coffee is the BEST in the Pittsburgh area. Their sweet Italian sausage is also very tasty. I stop in for breakfast or brunch every time that I am... More

We've been to Gab and Eat several times. There is always a waiting line on Sunday mornings. It is a small home-style diner packed full of regulars. We have talked to many people who have experienced Gab and Eat over the years to the same experience. Some times it is good and others it is not. This has been our... More

A hole in the wall breakfast joint. Very much a diner feel with frequent loyal locals. The food is good, not great and it is a little dirty. The service was average.

Was only in town for a few days but stopping here was a must. The owner has since passed on and family is running the place, but it's still as good as ever even if a bit run down. It's considered a dive, but the food is good and the service is great!

This is a local place where everyone knows everyone a little know local secret. The food is wonderful and all home cooking. Nothing matches ( cups ) but, the coffee i always hot and plenty on the plate. Might have to wait (especially Sundays ) only open till 2:00. Everyone is so friendly and you can still smoke here (...

This is my favorite breakfast restaurant and they are also excellent when they cater an event. I only wish they had a dinner hour.

Found this eatery on TripAdvisor. Reviews are accurate. Had a veggie omelette. It was literally 2" thick, filled with an abundance of absolutely fresh veggies. Never had one quite as good. Their Italian bread is made on the premises. They serve it toasted and buttered on both sides, about a half inch thick. Very, very good. Only downside was their... More

It is not a gourmet dining experience, but is more like organized chaos. But if you want a working mans meal this is the place to go. Although all their food is very good, we've settled on either the over abundant full mixed grill, with Texas toast, or the always jucy cheeseburger and natural cut fries. We tried most local...
