On a mini-reunion, some seminary classmates and I found our way to De Luca's for a late breakfast, hearing from some locals that it was one of the best places in town. Having eaten together at a few of the finest breakfast diners in the country, I will certainly agree that this place had some of the typical charm that can only be found at this sort of dive restaurant. Nothing was fancy or flashy. But the service was friendly and competent, the food was good, and the din and energy in the place was rather infectious.
Truth be told, my breakfast (eggs, potatoes, bacon, toast) was nothing special. And the menu was a little pricier than I think is appropriate for this sort of down-home cooking. But we all left De Luca's satisfied after a quality breakfast, having experienced an authentic slice of Americana. I won't frantically try to get back there the next time I'm in Pittsburgh, but I certainly wouldn't mind if I found myself sitting in one of those classic booths at some point down the road.
