We returned to Pamela’s after two years, and it was every bit as good as I remembered it. We had the strawberry hot cakes and the crepes style hot cakes- both amazing.

First time eating at Pamela's Diner. Everything was really good. Service excellent and food good. The pancakes were so light, thin and good. Never had pancakes so good.

Corned beef hash with eggs on top, is one of my favorites and Pamela's didn't disappoint. The crepe pancakes are also, fantastic. It's no wonder this is Obama's favorite breakfast place in Pittsburgh. The service is fast and pleasurable. Cash only, is the down-side.
