Pierogies Plus

Reviewed By bapeljagr - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

We have bought pierogies from various stores carrying Pierogies Plus for years. We stopped the other day to buy some directly from the store. While we were there we split a #1 combo, a stuffed cabbage, haluski and 3 pierogies. Everything was outstanding and there was a lot of food!

Jean-Marc Chatellier's French Bakery

Reviewed By michfree - White Oak, Pennsylvania

Quaint little hidden gem in Millvale. Beautiful pastries,cakes, croissants,and ohh the macarons are unbelievably divine. My husband tasted his espresso macaron after he got to the car and he immediately went back in to get more. If we had tried the almond macaron before we got home, we would have definitely bought more of those too. They were my favorite.
We loved the croissants and the other pastries we bought. We sampled the french breton cake and it was buttery perfection.
If you’re in the area, it is a must to visit!

Gaucho Parrilla Argentina

Reviewed By Victoria B

Went to Gaucho for my mother's birthday. The food was excellent. I especially recommend the pork empanadas. Everyone really enjoyed their meals in our group of 4 and were stuffed. The staff was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We went at around 3:30 pm so the wait was not bad. The dining area was just a bit loud, making conversation difficult. A couple of pieces of my rib eye were slightly overdone beyond the medium I requested. Everything was still delicious though! Definitely worth going.

Although the atmosphere is somewhat upscale, there is a very comfortable feel here. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable, but not at all intrusive. The view is spectacular from any table. AND THE FOOD!! I've been here 3 times with groups of four people, and every meal has been incredible, from the bread/butter selection, to the wonderful desserts. Appetizers and entrees are unique and imaginative, and cooked to perfection.

You can order one or dozens. We went with 6. No guilt! Be prepared for a line. So many decadent options. Topped fresh in front of you. I had the butter finger, mint chocolate and dirt. Coffee or water is a perfect compliment! Really the best donut I have had.

Pamela's Diner

Reviewed By Chuck S - Erie, Pennsylvania, United States

I've come to know Pamela's in the Strip as being a great and consistent breakfast spot before tackling the shopping for the day. Always busy and often a wait, it is definitely worth waiting for the usual 20 to 30 minutes. Known for their pancakes which are thin and almost crepe like, there are a number of other great offerings. From traditional and some not-so-traditional egg dishes and some nice lunch offerings. The service is fast and efficient and the servers always have outgoing personalities (they need to as there is such a high energy level in the place)! The hash browns are really good and the coffee always plentiful. This has become my family tradition when in town!

Please note, cash only but, the prices are reasonable and you get a great value!

I don't understand the few previous posters who disparaged the pizza. We ordered the Forest and it was so good. Delicate mushrooms, excellent cheese, amazing crust garnished with a balsamIc glaze. It was yummy. Nice service with an excellent selection of brews and wines. What is not to like? So happy we found this spot. Amazing Pizza.
