We were in town to see our Steelers play and our tradition is to come to the Dor-Stop for breakfast the morning we leave the city. This time we chatted with Bob and had a quick word with Vicki, the proud owners of the restaurant. This truly is our favorite breakfast place. good coffee, great staff, quick service, electric atmosphere... More

Totally delicious gem here in Pittsburgh for breakfast. It's always very very busy but worth the wait. Services brisk but very efficient. Try any gourmet eggs Benedict's they make. Make sure to leave room for pie!

So when you get there you have to go in and sign in. It's not a very big place but it has that little hometown diner feeling. We went in the late afternoon and we had about a 15 minute wait. Once inside, the waitress and the other wait staff was great. They are constantly filling up your coffee. I... More

Located in Dormont, Pennsylvania, this restaurant was a find. We were able to park at the front door and walk in. We sat in a booth near a window. Dor-Stop has a retro feel with pictures and mementos from a past time. A Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives signed poster hangs on the wall with black and white photos of Pittsburgh... More

Awesome pancakes, got just plain pancakes and they were amazing! My wife got banana chocolate chip and they too were excellent. Very small cute place, seems to fill up fast due to such delicious food.

My only trip to the Dor-Stop was for breakfast and I heard that they were the best. I must have a different taste for pancakes. I like light and fluffy pancakes. These were very dense pancakes. Hit my stomach like a ton o bricks. Everything else...average.
