This place turns over tables fast so even if there is a wait it will likely not be too long. Really good breakfast foods and the serving portions are big - be hungry when you arrive! Only downside is they only accept cash.

Pamela's is popular with locals. They don't take reservations and expect to wait, but worth it. Cash only! They are known for their hot cakes. You won't be disappointed.

I would love to know what they put in Pamela's Lyonnaise Potatoes. They are worth the trip to Shadyside to eat Breakfast.

The ambiance is what makes this place fun to stop by. The food is typical fare and nothing to brag about other than I liked the way they saute'd the vegetables in the Western omelette. The place is dated and clean, my water and coffee cup was never empty. They only take cash and it is always crowded, great place for early breakfast before you head out for the day.
