Midwest Living Review
Located inside Toledo’s Davis Building, Pam’s Corner is best known for fresh ingredients, generous portions and super-friendly service. The whimsically decorated luncheonette is the perfect pit stop for those playing, shopping or working downtown, and it’s worth the trip even if you’re not in the neighborhood.
Pam’s salads come in a variety of sizes to please different appetites, from petite ($2.79) to jumbo ($23 to $40). Most diners won’t want to go any bigger than the regular portion; extra-large and jumbo sizes are intended to feed a crowd. Recipes start with a bed of mixed greens, then layer on classic ingredients like taco and chef salad toppings, or more sophisticated combinations such as fruit and nut pairings. You can even order the catchall “kitchen sink,” or build your own salad from an almost endless menu of add-ons.
If you can’t decide on just one, Pam's will serve two petite salads on the same plate. (The pear salad makes particularly good company for the seasonal beet salad, FYI.) Pam’s also stacks up hearty sandwiches; the muffalleta ($5.99) is the local favorite. Soups are made daily with ingredients that vary depending on what’s in season.
Pam’s can be a little tricky to find—the entrance is in the rear of the building next to the parking lot on 10th Street. Just look for the bright green sandwich board and sign.
