A great find....

Yes, there is a long wait time but geez that's probably because the food is fantastic and the portions are bountiful. Really, why would there be a line a mile long if the food and the service were not good? I have been going there for years when I stay at the hotel up the street and am not a... read more

This restaurant has stunning reviews but our actual experience was far from that. Upon checking in we were told it was a 40 minute wait. We were seated after 90 minutes. After an hour, when we noticed lots of people being seated before us, we asked the owner. He said that people place their seating times by phone so that... More

The owner is originally from Brooklyn, NY. He personally visits each table to make sure everything is good. Huge portions. The homemade Danish (his wife makes them) are fabulous.

I don't normally rave about pancakes, so trust me, this place has the BEST bananas foster pancakes your mouth will have the pleasure of ever tasting. I also had the New Orleans eggs Benedict, which was very good, but I could have just kept eating pancakes.

We aren't in the area often, but when we are we always try to get to Shea's. We try to time it when there isn't a line to get in because it is soooo popular. But it is worth it. The variety and quality of the food is fabulous. I had the Eggs Benedict which is always perfect. In addition,... More

We were lucky, as we were driving by, we noticed that there was no line so we turned around and were seated right away. The service was fast and everything was just as we ordered it. I had the cinnamon swirl pancakes, great even though I couldn't finish the plate.

This place should be on the Food Network if it hasn't been on already. Best Breakfast presentation that I have ever seen. Fast and friendly service too. We discovered it at the end of our vacation or I would have gone more than once.

This Cafe was recommended by a friend and we took a couple with us today. They have lunch or breakfast. My husband had a scrumptuous shrimp wrap. One of our friends had the strawberry peach pancake short stack and could not finish it.......SO large! The other friend had eggs benedict- awesome according to her. I had a crab/spinach omelet of...
