I’ve eaten in Pamels’s Numerous times. They are consistently good. Service is good. Sometimes the place is a bit loud, but that’s because there are so many people that enjoy their food.

I ordered Gail's Favorite Eggs. They were very tasty! Scrambled eggs with cream cheese and scallions. Served with Lyonnaise potatoes and toast. I would definitely order this again!

We had a good breakfast here before heading to CMU for a tour. Nothing special. Defiantly nothing deserving of 4.5 stars here. But it was a solid diner for breakfast. We’ll go back.

I’ve been here many times. It is a great place for lunch and brunch. Actually it’s perfect. The dishes are big and enough for 2 person too share 👍 Every time when I decided to go for brunch here is my first option. Highly recommended.

I just wish they had gluten free bread. The omelettes are hearty and flavorful, the coffee is hot and good. I just miss toast when I go there.
