This place totally delivers as advertised. I'm not usually a big "breakfast" person, but my adult son and I were visiting the area and needed home cooking. Do not judge this book by its cover. It's a sweet Mom and Pop shop, friendly and warm. I had a great eggs benedict and he had some type of... read more

Went here a few months ago with our one year old and had a fabulous breakfast. Very accommodating to kids, quickly set up a highchair and encouraged us to sit away from the door where there may be a draft for the little one. Food was phenomenal- sick of the typical breakfast foods? This place has a variety of authentic... More

I have been Shakers a few times, their service and food are consistently great. The owner is always friendly and she greets you as you walk through the door. The place is small and parking is limited so try to time you stop accordingly. The food is the basic breakfast and lunch fair. The atmosphere is friendly with a local... More

There are so many great places to get a hearty breakfast in Worcester and Shaker's is now tops on our list. We were greeted and seated immediately and the atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming. Our waitress (the owner I think) gave suggestions and we weren't disappointed. I can't get wait to get back to try the Lebanese breakfast and get... More

We followed the advice of other reviewers and had the Lebanese breakfast and the Syrian toast with feta cheese. Both were excellent and a nice change from the usual offerings. The owner was very personable and we felt immediately "at home." We will certainly go back the next time we go out for breakfast.

We stopped at Shaker's Cafe for a Saturday Brunch (before a wedding) and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was very cozy and the food delicious. We were six in our party and ordered different plates. Lebanese breakfast and Syrian toast with feta cheese were really the best. Pavlina, the owners was there from setting up the table for us, explaining... More

Fabulous diner with some wonderful alternatives on the menu. Lebanese breakfast is excellent. You must try the Syrian toast with feta cheese. Portions are large! Cash only, there's an ATM on site.

Our Friday lunch was a fabulous scrambled eggs with lamb, a Syrian feta bread like i've never had before, and homefries cooked to perfection. Everything was served quickly - and NO grease. It felt light and tasted absolutely delicious. The owner is a wonderful woman, ready with a smile and a refill. It may not be a beautiful place -... More

Went there for Sat AM breakfast.Short wait.Had eggs with lamb($8.95).My friend had the standard(scrambled,bacon,hash browns).She's a small eater but she and I left not a scrap. Waitress(owner)was a joy.She deserves a ten rating,not the five max.I would definitely go back.
