“Great Breakfast on a Monday morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We were visiting our college aged daughter, who lives in Shadyside, first visit. Since it was about 10am on a Monday, there was no wait. We've tried the one in Squirrel Hill. I liked this one better, seemed roomier and cleaner. Large omelettes and big sausage patties. Everything was hot. Great coffee, left a pot at our table then I noticed on the menu, pots of coffee are $1.99 per person. First time I had ever seen that. We are having a large party/family coming in April. We will be bringing them here. Service was great and food was delicious.

“The Perfect Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Breakfast the way it should be served until 3:00pm at a reasonable price and great service. My wife and I have breakfast here on a regular basis and we've never been disappointed. Just a casual sort of breakfast spot with a 50s-throwback decor. Reminds you of the old diners from the 50s and 60s: tasty, short-order fare.

“Lunch.”

I went to lunch at Pamela's and ate outside on the patio - it was amazing. I would go back! The salad was fresh and wonderful.
