“If you like breakfast, you MUST try Shea's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Shea's is a small, unassuming cafe, especially from the storefront. There is usually a wait to get in, especially on the weekends. Put your name in with Lou at the desk, then take a bench outside, Trust me, you want to wait. Gourmet pancakes, specialty eggs Benedict dishes, homemade biscuits, fast, friendly staff, and awesome homemade pastries, all at a great price. Ive never had a bad meal here. Lou is ever the showman, running back and forth seating tables, taking checks, greeting the customers, all with a great sense of humor. You'll thank me for turning you on to Shea's!

“Get on line and you won't be sorry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Great find in Absecon/Galloway NJ...Shea's is perfect for anyone venturing to Stockton Seaview or Marriott Vacation Club. Most creative breakfast I've ever had, insanely good french toast and pancakes, best home fries anywhere, phenomenal staff and onsite owners make it a must-visit. You might see a line outside in the am, but don't be discouraged, it's worth the wait. The fact that it's a steal budget-wise is a huge bonus, but I would go regardless.

Whenever Im down to AC I always, always stop at Shea's on the way down and back on the way home. The food is always consistant and always great.

“May need a breakfast reservation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Outstanding experience with my wife and sons on July 15, 2013! Great food, great and friendly staff, packed!
Only advise is that unlike most breakfast places, this one FREQUENTLY requires a reservation! I understand why, but it may impact you should you be in a hurry.

“Great breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We were a party of four and we all enjoyed our dishes very much! I had Bananas Foster French Toast with homemade whipped cream. Also the freshly squeezed orange juice and home fries were outstanding. It was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant, but be prepared to wait.
