Great quick place to grab breakfast or lunch! It was a little busy when we walked in and someone had to wipe a table off for us, but our server was very friendly and we left satisfied!

This is a nice breakfast place with a good number of options. It could be a little cleaner and they should accept other forms of payment besides cash.

food is okay. i was definitely disappointed when i ordered "fresh fruit" and it was obviously thawed frozen, thick with syrup. yuck! that lost my patronage--i know that is petty, but hey, i could recommend better breakfast joints to you!

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.

Pamela's is just great. They have a few locations, all of which are great. The service is NEVER bad, the food is NEVER a disappointment, and the prices are reasonable. The "Morning After" is great if you're starving. The omelettes are delicious and big, and the coffee is always flowing. The potatoes. The potatoes at pamela's beat ANY breakfast potatoe in the city. My recommendation: the strawberry specialty pancakes. Just do it.

If you're going on a weekend morning, expect a line on the street at all locations, but its always worth the wait.
