Took the family in for lunch, it is a small place but clean and neat.....stacking plastic chairs and bare wooden tables did not do it for me. Wife had an egg salad sandwich and it was good... even if it only had a few potato chips with it....the coleslaw was REALLY tasty. I had a foot long hot dog which... More

This is a place to get comfort food. The setting is quite minimalist, the food is good but not great. The prices are higher than what I have paid in similar restauants. It´s OK but I wouldn't go out of my way to go back.

I recently started going to Pams on Saturday morning for breakfast and to read the Saturday free press paper. They have a great all you can eat brunch from 8 am to 1 pm.

This is the best breakfast joint in town. I moved to St Thomas 2 years ago from where I had lived in downtown Toronto. Living in downtown Toronto afforded me a wide variety of fantastic breakfast options. I was worried I would be disappointed with my options in a small town. Not so... Thanks to Pams. I sometimes order from... More

I visited twice in a week. Once alone on a week day. Food was good. I just seem to care about service. I drink my coffee pretty fast waiting for my food. My particular waitress would just stroll by not ask I needed coffee or notice my cup place out and away from me. I asked for more coffee but... More

We stopped here recently with my daughters hockey team while in town for a tournament. They accommodated approx 25 of us even though it was a busy Sat morning. While I did not have the buffet there was plenty of choice and it looked very good. Many of the people in our party did have the buffet and really enjoyed... More

While the food we had was pretty yummy that's about the only good thing I can say about our experience. Went with our 6, 4 and 1 year old for breakfast. Felt $6.99 was far too much to pay for my kids meals for the buffet. They would never eat that much so got them a meal off the menu.... More
