“Tasty breakfast with a Cuban Theme”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Recently had breakfast there after a long ferry ride from Portland Maine. Food and service was good. We had a large party with a diverse selection of orders and everyone's order was correct and delivered with a smile. You can't beat the price for breakfast! The Cuban music in the background was a nice treat and contributed to the relaxed atmosphere. The bakery products looked great and the rest rooms were clean. I'd go back!

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This place bakes their own bread and buns and uses local eggs, which makes a basic breakfast really good! Don't miss their breakfast sandwich (egg, bacon and cheese on one of their buns).

“Best of social enterprise”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

We had the chance to have a meal at the Shanty Cafe this week. Very eclectic menu. Food was up to par with any cafe around. What impressed even more was the proof that tasty food and social enterprise can be profitable. Our congradulations to the organisation and looking foward to return.
