We have walked by Cafe Raymond many times in the past, not even registering with us. We spontaneously went in for a late breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. The food was incredibly fresh, delicious, and nicely plated. They smoke their our smoked salmon which was...excellent. The service was friendly and efficient. You order/pay at the counter but the food and coffee refills were delivered to the table. They have indoor and outdoor tables on two levels. We did not partake of the non-breakfast part of the menu, but everything sounded great. We will visit again.More

Spinach feta omelet had overcooked spinach, undercooked eggs, dry toast. No complementary water. Best thing was the basement bathrooms, which were clean and efficient.

Had breakfast here in July. The outside seating was nice - until it poured down rain and the wind picked up. (Fortunately we were almost done eating and were okay just leaving). I had pancakes, eggs and home fries/potatoes. The food was delicious and worthy...of more than a 3. The combination of single-use items and reusables was confusing to me and in trying to reduce waste, I asked several questions... which weren't not answered in the friendly manner. I hope that they have returned to reusable glasses and utensils since my visit.More

It looks cooler perhaps than it actually is, and the food is not as fantastic as you might expect, but for breakfast it was good and reasonably priced. We've been there twice and there were no complaints - and there's something to be said for...that - but no raves about the food either. i guess i could have gone to a diner for a few dollars less and skipped the faux-cool.More

Came here on a Sunday for a quick breakfast. We moved through the line quickly and then secured a table. Food came out in a normal amount of time. Generous portions and tasty hash browns sides with orders. Everyone in our party was satisfied and...quite full.More

My husband and I generally eat at cafe raymond whenever we shop in Pittsburgh's Strip District and so we went there today. The first problem was that I ordered a mozzarella and tomato salad, but was served a sandwich instead. Not a big problem but...the waitress insisted she'd heard me order a sandwich when I knew I hadn't even after I assured her it didnt matter. Next, because our table was in front of the service station I saw another waitress knock a plastic salad cup.on the floor and instead of replacing it with a fresh one, put it back on the plate with the salad straight off the floor! Unfortunately I think we'll have to find another go to restaurant for our shopping g trips to the Strip.More

We had lunch here while in town for the Chicago Cubs versus Pirates baseball games. We decided to walk to the Strip District, from our hotel near the Point State Park, to check out the many shops. We stopped in for lunch and found the...service to be awesome and the food to be high quality. We were greeted at the door, our order quickly prepared and quickly delivered to our table.More

I had the Brie & Bacon Burger with wine sautéed onions and apple chutney. It was very good; almost too sweet but not quite. A nice balance of flavors. The side of potatoes was perfectly cooked, crispy and perfectly seasoned on the outside, perfectly soft...on the inside. My only complaint is that it took quite a while between the self-ordering to the table delivery. Interesting multi-cultural neighborhood. Looking forward to going back!More

My husband and I were in town for a bday party. We wanted to go to DeLucas or Pamela’s but the wait was too long. We are super glad we came here instead. It’s a genius system of ordering your food and they will assign...you a table while you’re in line to order. You don’t have to feel the pressure of wandering around with food and looking for a table. They give you a table and bring the food to you. It’s smart and efficient. The food is absolutely quality and plentiful. I had the veggie muffuletta and also was able to order a side of the Blueberry pancake - just one - so worth it. My husband had an egg white omelet the way he liked it. They also have seating upstairs. It’s quality food and wholeheartedly recommend it.More

A family member recommended Cafe Raymond to us for breakfast. The food we ordered was tasty and fresh. Unlike some of the reviewers, I thought they had a good system for ordering your food,paying for your order and getting a table. They delivered the food...to our table without any problems. The restaurant is busy and the space is smallish, but it worked for us. I would eat there again when we visit the strip.More
