“Don't let the negative reviews scare you.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We just tried the Shortcake Diner this morning despite reading some of the negative reviews on here. It was a nice little OSU themed dinner. It's not a shiny new chain, but it has a nice charm to it. I had a good western omelet with really good hash browns. I also got the biscuits and gravy which were surprisingly light and fluffy. The coffee was a little weak, but had a good taste. Our server was really nice, and people kept stopping by to heat up my coffee. Over all, we were very satisfyied with our breakfast and will probably go back sometime soon.

“Best drunk breakfast food around!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Shortcakes is an institution in Stillwater for late night food. Breakfast is always cooked fresh, but smell inside of restaurant is a little hokey. Quick in and out.

“Needs to be on Diner's, Drive ins and Dives”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This place has made a huge change in the last year. It was roach infested and a layer of grease covered the floors-which, hard to believe, was part of its charm. Now they have cleaned it up, but still have the same worn-in grills and rough wait-staff. Great food, they are open late so its nice to go when the bars close and people watch. Their prices don't come close to how good their food is. One warning: you will smell like Shortcakes when you leave and it travel with you to your car, house, bed and everywhere else which is all part of the experience that is Shortcakes.

“Good for Breakfast”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Not so pretty atmosphere but good breakfast food. The prices were good. Would go back again. Would love to see them fix it up a bit so there is more room.

“What you would expect”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Fast, friendly, cheap, but the food is only very average. Lots of local traffic, so they love it. I would eat here again because the breakfast choices in Stillwater are slim!
