I've been going to Shorty's since he was on Swamp Pike at the airfield. Love his innovative take on food! Check the chalkboard for daily specials. And the artwork is eclectic and fun!

The menu and the food here are spectacular. If you haven't tried it - please do, you will not be disappointed. Don't forget to try their sandwiches on their zucchini bread. You are sure to go back again and again!
