nice place, not fancy, food is good, service ok prices a little high. They do offer outside seating which is nice. It is only a breakfast & lunch place

We stopped by for breakfast and found a refurbished interior and updated menu (gourmet coffee drinks) along with the usual great eggs and fabulous muffins. Our server was polite and professional. We'll certainly return for other meals that can be eaten indoors or out!

This place is always busy. They expanded lately, so there is more seating. The owner is always nice, friendly and smiling. Her stuff is very average. I am not impressed with the look of this place either. It looks old, needs some updates, some decor...More

This place was tiny and busy. The service was decent, but the food was really good. Shelly, was very friendly. She was working harder than anyone else there. That's a pro and a con. I definitely recommend eating here.

When our kids get home from camp "Let's go to Shelly's!" is one of the first things we hear down the shore. Shelly's food has always been good, but since Agnes took over the service is 100 times better and the atmosphere is inviting. We...More
