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 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
