Stepping Stone Cafe

Stepping Stone Cafe

Stepping Stone Cafe: I personally love breakfast, a big hearty breakfast, so this place is my kind of place. Their breakfasts are huge and they have been serving them up like this since 1948. All of the things look so good that I wouldn’t know where to start. If you want pancakes, you can get their Mancakes and you are looking a stack of 3 13″ pancakes that are so big that they literally don’t fit on the plate, which is some Crazy Eats. The Mancakes come in buttermilk or whole wheat and you can even add blueberries if you want. If you finish the entire stack of 3 mancakes they will put your picture up on the wall of shame.

Other options are to get the biscuits and sausage gravy which again fill the entire plate and locals say that the gravy is the best in town or how about some delicious steak and eggs. Now I have never been a steak and eggs guy because I am very picky about steak, but this place may yet convert me. One of their most popular breakfasts is the Smothered B.A. Omlete that weighs in at 2 LB and is loaded with chicken fried steak, hash browns, onions, jalopenos, and cheddar cheese then covered with sausage gravy. Now that sounds like a breakfast that I could dig into.

Decadent Breakfast

August 12, 2009

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.
