This is a classic department store restaurant inside Macy's downtown (the original Kaufmann's store). I love going here for traditional department store fare, although I think it was better when Kaufmann's was in control. It is still a good place to get a reasonable lunch and remember the wonderful days of downtown department stores.

Tic Toc is located inside Macy's downtown Pittsburgh. It's just what you would expect from a mall/department store diner. Older crowd, older atmosphere. Food is decent.

I work in Pittsburgh. I usually eat at the counter. When Mark is behind the counter the service is great. I have gone a few times and he was not there and have sat there and no one bothers to wait on me. I usually get up and leave after about 10 minutes. There are other places to eat in... More

This restaurant is located in the old Kaufmann's building on Fifth Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh. Haven't been there in a long time and was not impressed with the menu nor the food. There hours are only from 11:00-3:00 everyday. Service was good, but not impressed with the food at all.

Step back in time when eating here. The food is good (try the pretzel chicken sandwich), the prices are remarkably low, the desserts are huge and sinful, the service is as expected.

The food is okay but the place is a little bit run down. Older and also a little slow. I've been here many times and continue to wonder why I return as it is all average.

I used to eat here when I was in college, so stopped for lunch. Food was good, waitress was very attentive. It's not the same atmosphere as the old Tic Toc, but I enjoyed it just the same. I even treated myself to dessert, couldn't resist the fresh-baked apple strudel ala mode! And I caught up on my emails with... More

This timeless classic is located on the 1st floor of Macy's downtown. Price very reasonable. Service was excellent. One of Pittsburgh's best kept secrets.

The Tic Toc is a venerable institution located in the former Kaufmann’s Department Store, itself a local favorite that with the passage of time and a changing urban economy has transmogrified into a Macy’s. During my recent lunch I considered a number of cafeteria type items such as meatloaf, chicken pot pie, the tic-toc burger and the “tic toc tea... More
