Pumpkin pancakes are the best!

This is THE breakfast spot in Pittsburgh's Dormont neighborhood. Diners, Drive-ins and Dives TV show filmed there and agrees! The jumbo and the pancakes are amazing. There is always a wait and they don't take reservations.

This is a local restaurant in Dormont, Pennsylvania. It was within walking distance of my brother's house. We ate there four days out of five. It was very satisfying and tasty, especially the walnut french toast, which was beyond yummy. My brother also recommends the raspberry french toast. Even better, the breakfast menu is available all day. The portions are... More

We chose this spot for breakfast as we had my sister, brother in law and 2 nephews in to celebrate our nephews college graduation. The place was definitely hoping and we had a brief wait, but the food, service and atmosphere was great. The ham and homemade pancakes were especially good. Nice touch the owner was very involved and talking... More

Having decided to try a different restaurant my wife and I decided to try the Dor-Stop for breakfast on a late Friday morning. The restaurant was jammed, a good sign, but we were quickly taken to a table. Our server appeared shortly there after and took or drink orders, and returned quickly with them. The wait staff was friendly and... More

I was visiting Pittsburgh for a conference and wanted to check out this restaurant after seeing it on the television show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. We stopped in for breakfast at around 9:30 a.m. on a Wednesday. We did not have to wait to get a table and our service was fantastic from the time of our arrival. I had... More

My husband and I stopped for breakfast here and we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly, the decor was pleasant and cheerful and the food was delicious! My husband enjoyed his meal so much that he must have mentioned how much he enjoyed it at least twice throughout the day. We will definitely be making a return visit next... More

My son and I went here because Guy Fiery visited this restaurant for his show (DDD). No complaints with the food. I do, howeve,r have a complaint about the server. She didn't introduce herself (another server said our server was Debbie), or welcome us, and wasn't friendly at all. Honestly, she acted like she had the proverbial 'bug up her... More

Delicious breakfast food. On the weekends there is usually a 20 minute wait to be sat mid morning, but it is worth the wait. Great food.

Wonderful pancakes in two visits there. Raspberry frenchtoast is excellent too. The restaurant is small, loud and crowded but once you get the food you don't mind at all!!!

stopped for breakfast and finding this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It's better than Pamela's! Apple cinnamon pancakes were delicious. Bacon was crisp. Coffee kept coming. My son has a lunch wrap and onion rings. He said they were very good. I gave him some of my pancake and he agreed it was very good. It's a little loud, primarily from... More
