I particularly like the soups here. The seasonal soups are especially unusual and tasty. Today's specialty was cream of asparagus. Nicely done with perhaps a little too much fibrous asparagus left in it. I ordered a first today - a design your own salad. The topping options were very nice. The dressing options were very nicely varied and the lemon... More

I visited Cyn Shea's Cafe today, Saturday September 17th 2016. This was my first time visiting the cafe, but I had heard several good things about the restaurant. The atmosphere was pleasant and the menu very extensive. I had a hard time choosing because everything sounded and looked so good. I chose the shrimp tacos with a side of macaroni... More

My husband got the maple chicken sandwich and a side of Mac and cheese. He really liked his food. I ordered a large southwest salad and added chicken. I was very disappointed. The dressing was good, the salad was just greens, beans, and corn (maybe a few cherry tomatoes?). The large portion was the size of a HALF portion at... More

Tried Cyn Shea's for the first time today! Absolutely the best quiche I ever ate! Loved the breakfast and the cinnamon roll was fantastic!

I like the selection of soups and quiches here. Everything is tasty, but the portions seem very small for the price. The restaurant seating area is very tastefully decorated and pleasant atmosphere. This is a fast casual place, not table service.

This was a first time for me eating at this restaurant and the food was great. I had a chicken panini and for a side dish, mac & cheese. It was all very good. The problem was that you order at the counter and some foods they fix while you wait on it there, other foods, they bring out to... More

One of my fav spots in Huntsville. We eat here often and I have never been disappointed. We have had many different items on the menu but especially love the salads. There are seasonal choices as well and last fall they offered the best soup I've ever had. This trip we had Memphis tacos which were absolutely perfect and a... More

The way this is set up, you go through the line and order your food. Then you go sit down and wait, and wait, and wait some more. It took our group of 3 at least 1/2 and hour to get our orders. Two of us only had salad, then after the half hour wait, they brought our salads and... More

Thank you Jane for your review. I am so sorry we are just learning of your experience. It's perplexing to me that you waited at all, since we make your salad for you, in front of you as you walk through the line. Your salad is ready as you reach the register, to take it with you to the table.... More
