It’s beginning to look a lot like…comfort food weather. As soon as the temperature drops, we immediately begin craving warm, hearty foods like meatloaf and mac and cheese. If you’re the same way, pull on some stretchy pants and let’s go!
Home, in Smallman Galley, is kind of a no-brainer. It’s called ‘Home’, which pretty much sums up the menu – modern takes on classic dishes. They even have a TV dinner, and it doesn’t get any more comforting than that.
Carmi Soul Food is a newer restaurant in the South Side, and we’re so excited about their menu. It features everything from fried chicken to pork chops to macaroni and cheese, and everything in between.
If that cinnamon roll in the picture isn’t calling your name, then we maybe can’t be friends anymore… Kidding, but seriously, Dor-Stop Restaurant has been doing comfort food right for more than 30 years. If you haven’t tried it yet, add it to your list!
First of all, we’re totally on-board with eating pie for breakfast. Pair that with all-day breakfast, house cured meats, and quiche…and we’re in.
If you ask anyone in Pittsburgh where to get comfort food, they’re bound to list Pamela’s. Their crepe-style pancakes are so iconic, you probably knew what we were going to say just by seeing the picture! Remember to bring cash, and pro-tip: even though the line looks super long, you usually get in faster than you’d think.
If they didn’t say Pamela’s, that Pittsburgher probably said KellyO’s – especially after it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. If you haven’t made it to either of their locations yet, think big, delicious portions for small prices…our favorite!
…and if that person didn’t say Pamela’s or KellyO’s, then they definitely said DeLuca’s. All three have locations in the Strip District, so maybe we should start a diner crawl? Either way, we also love DeLuca’s! The breakfast burrito is hard to beat, as is pretty much anything.
We couldn’t leave Piper’s off the list, even though we already wrote a whole article about it (check it out!) But seriously, pub food is some of the most comforting in our book. We highly recommend the beef shepherd’s pie – and make sure you eat all the browned bits around the edge of the bowl!
Yes, Double Wide has a surprising amount of comfort food on their menu – for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike! If you can’t decide, we recommend the meatloaf and a side of cornbread.
You maybe haven’t heard of Dick’s Diner, but we bet your grandparents have. It’s located in Murraysville, but totally worth the drive out of the city! They have an amazing turkey dinner on the weekends, and you absolutely *must* save room for a piece of their famous pie.
