My husband and I usually eat at Food Network's Guy Fieri's/Adam Richmond's stops. In fact, most of our vacations are centered around food :) So, the Dor-Stop restaurant is hands down, the best place for blueberry pancakes! You definitely cannot stop at eating just one hotcake! Get there early, otherwise you will have to stand outside in line. The interior... More

Even though new owners, I've been told, great family breakfast. Short wait for 6 people, once seated, great service, waitress was friendly and efficient, trying to get 2 grandmas away from table at end so others could be seated was challenging. Snuck waitress additional tip in apology. Not sure how generous Gram was, lol.

Dor Stop is a good coffee shop in Dormont but be forwarded if you try getting in on a Sunday. To start street parking is a bear, then you need to make sure everyone in your party is present before the put you on the list and it's tight quarters. Once seated, the food is very good and the shop... More

My husband and I were in Pittsburgh for a wedding and before we drove back to Buffalo on Sunday morning we decided to get breakfast. We researched a few recommendations, and decided to check out the Dor-Stop. We left our hotel to arrive shortly after the restaurant opened, and I'm glad we did. We were greeted in from the frigid...

We ate here for breakfast. The place is small but has a home style feel. You get a lot of food for the price. I love the potatoes they serve with the eggs. The omelet was yummy and fresh. The staff is extremely friendly.

My wife and I had a late breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the PhillyCheeseSteak omelette and Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal HotCakes (pancakes). The omelette tasted very fresh; I was very surprised that there was no oil in the omelette from the steak, very tasty. The hash browns were large chunks of potato and crispy. We absolutely loved the pancakes,... More

The coffee was hot fresh and flavorful and the waitress kept it coming. The breakfast food was outstanding. Liked the potatoes and onions. Pancakes are worth getting. Try the apple pancakes. Our server was personable and patient for us newbies

I visited on a busy Saturday morning. Our wait was surprisingly quick. But it was just two of us. My friend recommended the eggs Benedict. And it was very good. Watching around me the omelettes and pancakes looked very good. Will definitely go back.

We've been to the Dor-Stop a few times. The first time I was there, I tried their "famous" pancakes and I was unimpressed. However, I also had the potato pancakes, and those were awesome! The last couple of times we were there, the food was great. The staff was always very friendly and interacted well with our children. My biggest... More
