Total Pittsburgh. Honest/warm and gritty- staff and decor. Loved it. Food was incredible. Massive portions. Delicious. Didn't have to eat the rest of the day. Went during off hours. Encountered no problems as other readers had when super busy. Will definitely be back.

Our daughter-in-law recommended this place when we're visiting. There was a line out the door and up the sidewalk but it moved quickly and ended up being about 20 minute wait. It was worth it. Great breakfast with large portions, hard to eat it all....More

Yes, you could order the eggs and the potatoes but their gluten free options are pretty limited.
