Nancy's is the kind of place where you want to become a regular. Their best food is the standard and delicious breakfast fare, but they serve lunch too. I say "standard" because it's typical stuff like eggs & potatoes, omelets, and pancakes, but Nancy's does it all well with excellent service. It helps that it's super cheap. Pro tip: The... More

This is a small place but it stays packed with customers sometimes outside the door waiting to get in. Great selection of food and every thing I have gotten has been good. I love this place and eat here at least twice a month. Great hidden little restaurant.

What a wonderful little old school diner with some surprising high end touches like quality local bread and sausages. Great food. Reasonable prices. Blast from the past atmosphere. If I had one complaint, the coffee is a little weak. Will be returning. Weekly if possible.

This small diner serves breakfast and lunch. I really liked everything. It is small and plain but it is so local and friendly you feel like family. The apple and Havarti cheese sandwich on raisin toast is really, really tasty. The coleslaw is just like my mom's. It was creamy and not sour. The parking lot does require a quarter... More

We found this diner earlier this summer when our friend suggested we try it out. It's not in a trendy or hip part of Pittsburgh but the food is plentiful, good, and cheap. The staff is very friendly and the owner is very nice. We try to go there almost every weekend.
