Great food, service and atmosphere. Long wait, but worth it. Order the crepe pancakes. Maybe try going during the week if you don't want a wait.

I don't get all the hype of Pamela's. People have been raving about this place from college and all I see are grumpy staff, long waits and average food. And whatever they put in their pancakes that everyone seems to love so much gets on everything else on the griddle, so their homefries and eggs (which are always runny no matter how you order them) always taste really funny. Deluca's is way better.

We love this place for their delicious pancakes and quick service. I would give it 5 stars but this stuff has got to be bad for my health

Had breakfast here with a friend from Pittsburgh. He suggested we go there, and I was not disappointed. They are famous for their pancakes, so I ordered them. They are huge, thin, and incredibly tasty. The service was good and the decor was fun. It is cash only, though, so make sure you have money before you go.
