The owners wife, very personable and her hubby does the cooking. Had the lighter fair, two eggs over easy with their home-made, hash, it was outstanding! The best I've ever tried so far! Their menu has many breakfast combinations. Their portions are good size also. My friend had these 2 manhole size pancake's. He finished them!

We went to Shakers for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We had the pancakes and the hash omelet. The food was very good and the service was with a smile. It's cash only but with the low prices you won't use much.

9 of us stopped in for breakfast between soccer games and were pleasantly surprised. From the outside it doesn't look like much but once you meet your servers and the owner you'll be happy. We all had big orders and our food came out at the same time and hot. From experience at other eateries with 9 of us the... More

I stopped in for breakfast the other morning - actually almost drove by this little spot. This restaurant has so many great reviews that I wanted to check it out. It is tiny and is run by an older couple - the woman out front was so sweet and attentive and her husband was making the food - I had... More

What a breakfast, and what a menu. Pauline is a welcoming host. We are so happy that we ventured away from our regular stops on Shrewsbury St. To seek this wonderful cafe out. Our future trips through Worcester will be timed and routed for a stop here. the breakfast menu (all of it) is to die for, and it is... More

My wife and I stopped here for breakfast while visiting our son at holy cross. It is a small family run type of place with a very friendly staff and good food. It fills up quickly because it is small but they are pretty fast waiting on you and getting food out. I was starving and could not finish the... More

Well I am a native to the Worcester area and just recently moved off of Hamilton street (where Shakers is located) My boyfriend, sister, and I decided to try the place out one Saturday morning and it was not the best. Its small and cramped with no waiting area. We were finally seated at the bar (we were told we... More

My girlfriend and I decided to try Shaker's Cafe this morning; we usually go to Lou Rocks and we love it there, but today we wanted to do something different. I instantly received the feeling that if you were not a regular to this restaurant you were not exactly a priority to them. The first thing was when the server... More

I had to try this place out. It came on a recommendation from a friend and also has very high marks on Yelp. We arrived around 7:30 am on Sunday morning. There was only 1 other customer in the place. Most of their offerings had 3 eggs (I prefer 3 eggs for the protein) and were a good value in... More
