I feel bad writing this review, but hope somehow the new owners see this. I went in for breakfast, again, after having a first bad experience. Wanted to try it again hoping maybe I went in on a bad day, but this time was worse. I got the breakfast avocado sandwich. This used to be my favorite sandwich from The... More

Filled with tchotchkes & interesting art with friendly service, this is a fun cafe along Main Street, Flemington's cafe row. Although my favorite BLT was poorly organized & lacking a whole lot of bacon, other sandwich choices, such as the Quebecois, were noteworthy; but next time I think I'll try an interesting omelet.

This was our first visit to the Cafe.The breakfast was very good. We had bacon and eggs.The only thing was it took quite a while to be served. There were only 2... More

I should have checked the recent reviews before we picked this restaurant for lunch today. My wife had the Grilled Cheese Sandwich w/tomato which didn’t remind either one of us what a decent grilled cheese sandwich looked or tasted like. It left a lot to be desired. At this point I would have given this place a poor review, but... More

Let me just say, this used to be the best place around to eat. Every weekend it was absolutely packed. The owners were so friendly and vivacious that it almost hurts to write a bad review about a place that I used to love. The new ownership is dragging it down. Basically the only thing they have kept are the... More

My friend and I went to The Shaker Cafe for lunch and were told we could sit at any available table. The restaurant is very clean and offers a cute and charming atmosphere! Our waitress arrived with menus and the daily specials. Piping hot coffee arrived in good sized mugs and it was delicious: freshly brewed. We ordered and waited... More

I hadn't been here since it was sold. I used to work in town and would come regularly. When I came in, no one greeted me. I sat at the counter and still nothing. I then went to get a menu and younger girl told me I could have a seat. I ordered French onion soup and grilled cheese with... More

Description
The Shaker has had a long and rich history. For about 20 years, the Shaker has been synonymous with a vibrant atmosphere and great food. In January 2010, the Shaker was purchased by Charles Dempsey. Charles continues to enrich the Shaker vision and follow in the path of the Shaker legacy.Even though the ownership has changed the shaker aims to do even better. We now accept credit cards, have extended hours, and have sourced our produce from a local farms for even greater quality food at the same low prices.Look for in 2011: We're now open Saturdays for Breakfast (8-12). We'll also be introducing new menu items after they're perfected in our test kitchen (which happens to be the Dempsey household!).Thank you for your interested in the Shaker :)-- Charles Dempsey & family Hours of OperationMonday - 7am - 3pmTuesday - 7am - 3pmWednesday - 7am-3pmThursday - 7am - 3pmFriday - 7am - 9:pmFriday (Dinner) - 5pm - 9pmSaturday -8:am-12:00pmSunday - 8am - 1pm
