This is a great spot to get some quality diner food and atmosphere. Nothing hi brow, just good food served as quickly as the kitchen can get it out given a busy lunch crowd Only takes cash so be prepared.

Food is unbelievable. Solid 5 stars for breakfast food. Hotcakes are the bomb. Brought the family here for breakfast and it did not disappoint. Prices are reasonable. Place was crowded. Parking can be an issue. Bathrooms? Need some work in this area folks.

Quaint, great value, best crepe pancakes. They were even taken to the White House where breakfast was cooked and served for President Obama and military members. Cash only.

The Lyonnaise potatoes and the unusually huge crepe-like pancakes will dazzle you and fill you up. The chorizo hash is delightful. We have eaten there many times and love it. Go on weekdays because on week-ends you will be in a line by 9 AM!

The Obama's may love Pamela's but it does not agree with my digestive system. I took family visiting from Washington DC and we didn't have a long wait. The food was good but passed through me pretty quickly.
