We have developed a hot cakes dependency. There is an adorable little diner called The Dor-Stop we discovered while staying in a hotel when we first got to The Burgh. It’s actually not so little anymore since it’s been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The hubs is on a 7/7 rotational schedule, he works 7 days straight and then he is off for 7 days, so we don’t get to do a lot when he is working (16-hour days will drain you). This diner, has become our favorite place and we have gone once a week, every other week since we’ve arrived in PA. The hot cakes are the most delicious thing I’ve ever put in my mouth and there a few tasty options. My favorite are pumpkin walnut and banana chocolate chip. The hubs loves the Guy’s Version Jumbot and Eggs Benedict. One time, just once, I tried the jumbot and immediately regretted not getting the hot cakes. I vowed to never make the mistake again. I have not faltered.
The diner sits on a quaint little street in Dormont with lots of little shops and delis. There are a lot of beautiful churches around the area with breathtaking architecture and picturesque stained glass. We took a little stroll after breakfast and happened upon a church with beautiful wine colored doors. I love the way burgundy and gold look together so naturally a photo shoot ensued. A cozy cardi is where its at, man. Throw in an elbow patch and I’m in heaven. An elbow patch adds that masculine detail that I love and creates an interesting detail. I mean, besides the fact that I’m dangerously close to Mr. Roger’s territory, elbow patches are cool, right?!
Cheers, hippie loves!
