Hey BB - Thanks for pictures. For those of you that have never been to Pamela's, I think you can now see why so many people rave about this place. I didn't think they could do anything but roll their signature pancake up with stawberrys. Don't look like fresh strawberries, but it could be the time of the season. Hey, they look very, very good. I just love those pancakes (I call them crepes) Oh, would I love to have them this morning!! They are truly some of the best pancakes/crepes I've ever had. I use to love the IHop Cream of Wheat pancakes..also very rich tasting.
I have to believe it is very difficult to run so many Pamela's. Hey, I am thrilled for them. This place started out as nothing and look where they have come. Only in America. An amazing success story for Pittsburgh and really it's just a breakfast destination so think how well they have to do in just say..6 hours...I know they are open longer, but really do you go there for anything other than breakfast? Not likely.
Hey, good for them. Let's hope you just hit the new location that hasn't got it together yet. I've been to the ones in Squirrel Hill, Shadyside and near the University in Oakland. I like the one in Squirrel Hill the best. This is a great story for anyone who knew them and has moved away. I wonder if Pamela is really the name of the owner?
When I was in business there, I did know several of the owners of the successful places like the Benkowitz family, the owner of Tessarro's (Kelly - He sold it and brought City Grill many years ago) the owners (brothers) of Roland's (in the Strip), etc. Never knew who owned Pamela's though. Hot Licks ..Louis Lipps. Boy, someone mentioned that one...That's great. Pittsburghers are amazing..They really are.
I wish I knew that pancake recipe!!! I have to believe that batter is loaded with butter. I've tried watering down my mix but I can never get it to come out like Pamela's
I saw the spot on the Dor-Stop last night on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives (my all time favorite food show) and it was great. Nice to see Guy's family, too. There's a success story. I love this guy! I really do not think I will get tired of him like I got tired of Emerill. He's my kind of food guy. HE'S MONEY!
