“Longer wait, but totally worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We arrived at 1015am on a Sunday morning and there was a 30 minute wait. The waiting section is very small but it was not that cold out so we waited a bit outside. We had a veggie omelet and french toast. Everything was delicious and definitely worth the wait!

“Great breakfast; real care taken to prepare it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Breakfast at the Sunflower Cafe is fun. It is a sunny and funky place, with an artsy feel and very good food. It is not a huge menu but the portions are ample and there is something for everyone. The oatmeal, for example, takes a while because it is anything but instant. The oats are full and steel cut, tasting like real homemade Irish oatmeal.The pancakes are delicious, with large portions, Kids love the chocolate chip pancakes, which are big and fluffy and have crispy edges. Yummy. Not the world's best hash browns (cooked in a wok) but who can quibble? Everything came out timed right, fresh, hot and delicious. They don't accept credit cards so bring cash. Will go back for more meals to try lunch. Sometimes there is a line on weekends so plan ahead!

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

I love this place! The atmosphere is so warm and friendly, everything I've eaten there has been phenomenal. I often order one of their many daily specials and they're so creative and delicious! If I lived further away I'd still make the trip to have breakfast at this place. Best ever!

“Best Breakfast with great atmosphere!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

My first visit was on the suggestion of my boyfriend, who had lived in the area. Now mind you we currently reside in Doylestown, PA - about a 40 min ride. I have never had a bad meal at Shorty's. The food is made to order, so yes you may have a bit of wait. However, it is always terrific and the servers are always attentive. We have now made many trips in the last three years, and both agree it is by far one of the best places for creative, delicious food. Try the Dutch Omelet!

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

This is my all time favorite place to go for breakfast/lunch! Everything on the menu is delicious, but the French toast and corn bread are to die for! This is a must go to place, you won't regret it! (:
