A Worthy Pittsburgh Staple!

When it comes to Pittsburgh staples, Pamela’s P&G Diner is definitely in the higher echelons. It has been reported many times over that the Obamas are even fans of Pittsburgh’s classic diner. When it comes to getting a delicious, greasy breakfast, there are few places that top Pamela’s.

Pamela’s diners are located in neighborhoods throughout the city – giving you choices between dining in Mt. Lebanon, Strip District, Oakland, Shadyside, Squirrel Hill, and Millvale. Each diner has its own unique style of décor and personality. Admittedly, the lines to get into each diner can be intimidating – occasionally going on for blocks. Fully aware of their intense lines, Pamela’s staff is really good at getting diners in and out, quickly and smoothly. As a result, the wait never lasts longer than a half hour. However, if a half hour wait is too long for you, arriving early (at around 10:30 a.m.) or arriving late (at around 1:30 p.m.) is sure to get you in and seated immediately.

In general, Pamela’s diners each have the same menu, but there are little tweaks here and there. For example, the Strip District Pamela’s is the only one to offer chorizo. They serve your standard breakfast fare – omelets galore, breakfast meats, a variety of toasts, eggs made to your liking. Add to that mix deliciously buttery crepe-style pancakes, either filled with a variety of fruits, or served flapjack style, and their amazing and ever-famous lyonnaise potatoes. The potatoes are worth the trip, alone. Pamela’s is also accommodating and veg-friendly by allowing you to substitute any egg product with Egg Beaters. And they make a mean egg-whites only omelet. In addition to the food, Pamela’s offers a wide variety of beverages – bottomless coffee, tea, and soft drinks; milk, an assortment of juices, and hot chocolate.

Pamela’s prices are very affordable, and their portions bountiful. And with their menu of delicious crepe-style pancakes, omelets galore, and incredible lyonnaise potatoes, Pamela’s all-day breakfast Sundays are top notch.
