We wanted a substantial breakfast before a busy day of sight seeing. We wanted to be on the road fairly quickly and for a reasonable price. Shorty's met all those goals. Great diner food, generous portions and quick service , Shorty's didn't disappoint.

Excellent service, quaint, romantic atmosphere, fine food. The polish plate is the finest I've ever eaten. The Italian fare is delicious. Specials board at the entrance. If I were to require a caterer I'd call Shorty's!
