We were referred to Pam's by a few locals in town...This one is near the University of Pittsburgh. The food and service were great! Expect to wait for a table, but well worth it!

We ate breakfast here, eggs, bacon and toast, but the lyonnaise potatoes are what home fries should be. Get there earlier than 11 and you get the early bird discount. No credit cards accepted, so bring cash.

This little place has the best pancakes and French toast you will ever eat. The pancakes are thin with crispy edges and delicious. You can't go wrong at Pamela's.

We ate here twice on our trip to PITT! Had one of the best crepes ever! We had the 'Morning after special", Strawberry Crepes, and a side of lyonnaise potatoes and ALL were SO GOOD! Everything about this place is great! The deco is interesting, the service was quick and friendly, and the prices are reasonable. Will come back when in Pittsburgh!

We tried Pamela's for breakfast on a recent weekend trip to Pittsburgh based upon the reviews that it is one of the "go to" places for a morning meal. On the whole, it's a decent value for your money. You get plenty of food, so you shouldn't go home hungry. The standouts were the lyonnaise potatoes and the spicy chorizo sausage patties. If you order eggs, the aforementioned are nice accompaniments. Their "signature" crepe style pancakes (we ordered ours with fresh strawberries) were surprisingly nothing special. In fact, they were very ordinary! Perhaps a little vanilla extract or other flavoring added to the batter might help give them some distinctive flavor. This is not a place that will make you savor the memory of some culinary masterpiece. But, you can't go wrong having breakfast here if you happen to be in the area.
