“Good Atmosphere, Good Bread”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

This place is a Strip District staple, it is often a popular hangout place with a good beer selection, outdoor seating, and OK food predominantly of an Italian style cuisine. The atmosphere I would say is the highlight of this place, on Saturdays one is lucky to get a seat here and it is set up in a manner that would be good to stop at for drinks during the evening as well. The food could use some improvement but the fresh bread from a neighboring bakery is a good addition to this place. Overall, I would recommend people stop here more for drinks first and food second.

“Favorite breakfast place in Pittsburgh”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We'd go here just for the Mancini's toast, but everything else is pretty good too. The place is small but interesting. Place settings are all different, but that's just part of the charm. The fritatta is our favorite. The price is right, and it's usually not crowded. We like it so much more than Pamela's or DeLuca's

“fabulous breakfast!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

my husband & I love to come here for breakfast!! (usually on weekends) I really love the frittata but the french toast (with italian bread) is not to be overlooked. I love that the coffee comes in big mugs like you would use in your own kitchen!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Visited the strip on Saturday morning. The "best breakfast in town" restaurants had lines to get in. Decided to drop in at The Cafe and glad we did. Small place but not overcrowded. Lots of atmosphere. Had three people serve us. Very attentive staff. Excellent frittata and pancakes. Nice relaxing way to start the day. We will definitely go again on our next visit!!

“Just a hole in the wall :-)”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love, love, love this place. They have the BEST lasagna. We were sitting outside and people kept asking me how good it was - it's amazing! Everything is fresh and homemade. It's small but mighty!
