Pittsburgh held onto streetcars until like that crazy Jerry Garcia tie in your closet, they just became fashionable again. The Dor-Stop is named after the Dormont stop of the Pittsburgh streetcar line which for you snobs is now called light rail. Just streetcars to us. The Dor-Stop is one of those wonderful little places where you might have to wait... More

Dor-stop has built a reputation on having unique breakfasts and lunches. Have been a customer through one relocation and two owners and the style (home cooking with specialty offerings) has carried over. Dor-Stop has always had prompt attentive setvice. Still worth a visit!

The food is good. However, the diner owner's are bigots. They saw that my last name was Italian on my card. They felt necessary to comment on it and I heard them telling jokes about Catholics behind the counter. Pretty hypocritical for people who post bible verses in their windows. Just stay away if your black or Mexican lol

Management response:

After reading your review, my first question is when did you last visit the diner?? The Dor-Stop is under new ownership and I'm appalled you would post such a review. My husband and I bought the diner in September 2015. The bible verses have not been posted in the front window since November of 2015 and had you visited us... More

My husband and I usually eat at Food Network's Guy Fieri's/Adam Richmond's stops. In fact, most of our vacations are centered around food :) So, the Dor-Stop restaurant is hands down, the best place for blueberry pancakes! You definitely cannot stop at eating just one hotcake! Get there early, otherwise you will have to stand outside in line. The interior... More

Even though new owners, I've been told, great family breakfast. Short wait for 6 people, once seated, great service, waitress was friendly and efficient, trying to get 2 grandmas away from table at end so others could be seated was challenging. Snuck waitress additional tip in apology. Not sure how generous Gram was, lol.

Dor Stop is a good coffee shop in Dormont but be forwarded if you try getting in on a Sunday. To start street parking is a bear, then you need to make sure everyone in your party is present before the put you on the list and it's tight quarters. Once seated, the food is very good and the shop... More

My husband and I were in Pittsburgh for a wedding and before we drove back to Buffalo on Sunday morning we decided to get breakfast. We researched a few recommendations, and decided to check out the Dor-Stop. We left our hotel to arrive shortly after the restaurant opened, and I'm glad we did. We were greeted in from the frigid...

We ate here for breakfast. The place is small but has a home style feel. You get a lot of food for the price. I love the potatoes they serve with the eggs. The omelet was yummy and fresh. The staff is extremely friendly.

My wife and I had a late breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the PhillyCheeseSteak omelette and Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal HotCakes (pancakes). The omelette tasted very fresh; I was very surprised that there was no oil in the omelette from the steak, very tasty. The hash browns were large chunks of potato and crispy. We absolutely loved the pancakes,... More
