It has reasonably priced very good food and excellent service. It's also very clean and well located, near the garage for the Monogehela incline.

Was here years ago. Loved it so much then, I returned with my wife once again. Small, intimate, very family oriented place. You feel like you're sitting inside someone's dining room / kitchen. Very friendly service. Excellent and extensive food choices. On Shiloh Street in...Mt. Washington. Easy to find and you'll be heading back there in the future...I guarantee it. They also provide catering services.More

After riding the Monongahela Incline on a late Monday morning we wandered up Shiloh St. with lunch in mind. It was a little early for most places to be open but when we got near the end of the street we noticed J&J with a...sign for all-day breakfast. We decided to give it a try and it didn’t disappoint. It was warm and homey and comfortable. The portions were large, the waitstaff was friendly and the clientele was local. I recommend the Mixed Grille for a filling breakfast, but the Meatloaf Stack would have been a great call for lunch. The food was a little slow coming out due to a mixup in the back with handwritten tickets, otherwise this probably would have been a 5-star review.More

We're from Florida (5 of us) and were in the Pittsburgh area to attend a wedding. Had the pleasure of finding this restaurant for breakfast one morning. We were greeted with a "good morning" and smile upon entering and seated right away. Breakfast was delicious...- nothing left on our plates. Definitely a great hometown restaurant! Great food & great service.More

I was staying at a nearby apartment for a few days and was walking in the neighborhood looking for a hot breakfast. At first, it looked like the place was closed, but luckily they were open. I had their breakfast burrito two mornings in a...row and then had the veggie omelet. Everything was delicious, the coffee was good and the service was attentive.More

Small , but very good breakfast. Portion size was good as well. Service was good considering there were only 2 girls working , 1 cooking the other waiting on customers , clearing the tables and handling takeout. (Lack of staffing due to nobody wanting to...work , COVID lazy people). Only down fall would be the on street pay parking.More

Just a simple, cafe-style restaurant within walking distance of the Mon Incline. It isn't fancy but it is charming. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Their breakfast menu was very long and packed with creative choices. I'm decisive and had trouble settling on just one...choice. Portions were large and everything tasted great. They grind, smoke, roast their own meats. It shows. We would go back and take friends with us.More

We regularly eat at this diner on Sunday mornings. They try to change up their menu with specials. A lot of the food is typical Pittsburgh fare, but always hot and tasty. We regularly enjoy the reuben sandwich, shrimp & fries in a basket, cheeseburger...quesadilla, Eggs Benedict among others. Wait staff is friendly and helpful and good at remembering you. My husband has issues with shellfish, so they are always careful to clean the grill or use separate pans for his food. Be aware that if there is a Steeler game, it may take a while to get a table or to get your food. Games are usually on the TV with the sound off and subtitles on. They do take-out as well. Only breakfast and lunch, closing around 4 p.m.More

Looking for breakfast after riding the Monongahela Incline? Try this great little family diner just a short walk along Shiloh Street. It's a gem. I had the Pulled Pork & eggs, which sounded a little odd for breakfast, but so glad I did. The staff...were all friendly and welcoming. This corner diner is just a great example of what a neighborhood place should be.More

Great neighborhood restaurant with really good service and tasty food. The bacon was delicious and their gravy was to die for! The family commitment shows in the quality of the food and service. Patriotic and welcoming atmosphere.
