We've driven by Shirley's a few times and decided to try it and we won't be back. The food was average and the staff was not. The waitresses gave us the impression they'd rather do anything than actually wait on customers. The parking is poor,...More

Though I have eaten here previously, a recent visit for breakfast prompted me to write a review. The food is very good and not just basic diner meals. For example, I can recommend The Perfect Waffle. Great! Many other choices, as well, for homestyle breakfasts....More

I have always had a wonderful meal at Shirley’s. The Montreal favorites (Poutine, smoked meat sandwich etc) and the breakfast/lunch menu is very solid . I particularly enjoy the chili for lunch.

We had been hearing about how good the breakfasts at Shirley's are for years, so we tried it finally. First of all, the place is a diner. Fine. But it's a dumpy diner. Dirty-ish floors and decor from 1975, not in a fun, kitschy way...More

We were traveling in the area and found this restaurant. The food was very good! They had crepes, omelettes, pancakes, sausage gravy (surprising very tasty) and we couldn't try them all but everything we saw looked good. Coffee was steaming hot which to isn't true...More
