Nothing fancy about this diner, clearly no one needs them to spruce up the aesthetics because the food will transport your tastebuds to their happy place. Pittsburgh Hash, Lyonnaise Potatoes, crispy bacon & the highlight, their big-as-your-plate-Crepes ! Crispy edges, tender & heavenly. I will dream about these pancakes for a very long time.
Easy street parking, fast service, cash only!

I LOVED this eatery. From the unlimited coffee to the toast and the eggs, done perfectly!!! I asked for a special order of avocado on toast with eggs over easy, open faced! Delicious !!! But my favorite was the Lyonnaise potatoes! The BEST I ever had.
I will be back!

I was looking for a local spot to have breakfast and found Pamela's. Located in the strip district, it was a bit of a walk from downtown but well worth it. Walking in the door you find a good mix of locals and tourists. It's always a good sign when the locals are construction workers, police, and people who know all the staff. The menu has lots of options and the food was great. The portions are large and I had a hard time eating everything but it was really good.

Our waitress seemed genuinely happy. She was kind, and attentive. Our breakfast was served lightening fast, and tasted delicious. I got the corned beef hash, and my husband the chorizo hash. I never clean my plate, but I did this day!

I love diners and this one is a winner. They are very popular but we didn't have to wait long at all. Really good diner food - chorizo and cheese omelette was delicious. And fast, friendly service. We both liked it a lot and would go back. NOTE - it is cash only!
