Excellent food and great service! What more could you ask for?
The croissant French toast with maple and caramel sauce was delicious.

Pamela's is the perfect place to visit while in the Strip District. Very good breakfast food and the atmosphere is just very cool and authentic. I recommend the chocolate chip pancakes. Ca't miss this place!

“Weight Watchers threw in the towel here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you want to go on a calorie-count splurge this is the place, and it's worth the guilty pleasure. Amazing that there are American cities with more of an obesity problem than Pittsburgh, given the contribution Pamela's makes to the local diet.

“Best pancakes around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We have visited other Pamela's restaurants before, and I can say the food quality at the Forbes Av location is consistent with the others. We hope Pamela's expands into the further reaches of Pittsburgh. The pancakes are the best you'll find anywhere, and you'll want to go exploring the neighbourhoods surrounding any of their locations.

Unless you're a fairly early riser, expect to wait a bit for breakfast at these popular restaurants.

“Still Best Crepe Pancakes Anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Love coming back to the Burgh for a visit to get "The Morning After Breakfast".

Just as good as I remember. The eggs are made in real butter and the crepe pancakes are the best around.

A must stop for breakfast in the Burgh.
