Gabriela and I decided to kick off our day of meetings over a discussion at Pamela's. The design is friendly and efficient but not overdone. Service was just right for morning---responsive but unobtrusive.
I went with Pamela's Special Crepe Hotcakes topped with strawberries. The hotcakes were interesting and quite good: not as thick as a pancake but thicker than a French crepe. They were also just a little crispy, adding texture that you don't usually get with pancakes. The strawberries were fresh and good. The coffee was hot and plentiful. I was a little surprised that Forbes Avenue doesn't seem to have more breakfast places, but I consider Pamela's a find.
