Obama said so himself. Pamela hotcakes are like no other, they are thin, crispy (almost like crepes) on the outside, and soft and filled with some sort of filling on the inside. A must eat for those in the area.

Ate at Pamela's near Squirrel Hill and still can't get the experience out of my mind! Had a healthy and delicious veggie omelet with fantastic Lyonnaise potatoes. We shared an order of thin crispy blueberry hotcakes and regular hotcakes. Even though we were full, we...More
