Decadent Breakfast

Breakfast or Dessert?

Breakfast or Dessert?

Deluca’s Restaurant: I know that I have sweet tooth so a place like Deluca’s Restaurant is just my kind of place. They are home to some of the most extravagant and decadent breakfast dishes around. They have 8 different whipped cream covered breakfast dishes so that you can remember the days when pancakes and waffles could only come with whipped cream. The one that makes me hungry is their chocolate chip pancakes, topped with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, nuts, and strawberries called the Chocolate Chip Hot-ade.

Their huge portions of traditional diner food have become famous and legendary in Pittsburgh. The delicious crepes are filled with creme, fruit and chocolate and there are huge, over-sized omelets made to order. So eat to your hearts content. For the really hungry you can get either the 2LB breakfast burrito or the 2 1/4LB mixed grill with veggies, potatoes, meat and eggs.

This place has some Crazy Eats because of the incredible breakfast/dessert dishes and also some big portions of good food. Just make sure you get there in plenty of time because there is always a line at breakfast time. So plan ahead and expect to wait because it always puts a damper on the day when you want to check out a great spot to eat and don’t plan for the long line.
