My boyfriend and I stopped in for breakfast this morning and were disappointed after hearing great reviews. My omelette was rubbery and overcooked. My boyfriend had eggs over easy, toast, coffee and homemade corned beef hash. Everything was super salty. Our rye toast was made...More

We walked to Shirley's from Broadway which turned into a bit of a hike. The place was jammed and we found ourselves surrounded by local folks who obviously come often for breakfasts that are plentiful. I came for the gluten-free pancakes and was not disappointed....More

Good food and friendly service - Highly recommend the Shirley Melt for lunch. It is a run down diner on the inside with pleasant people and plenty of smiles. I liked it and will definitely be stopping by again.
