We visited midweek in October so there was no line. Food was yummy and the decor was cute. It was a little off the heaten path.

The most outstanding breakfast on the island, hands down! If you think your momma is a great cook, you would think she was in the kitchen of this restaurant! Lunch here was also a plus! Cat motiq/shabby chic decor, mix-matched chairs and tables. Plain-jane red brick building on the outside, hard to tell there is a restaurant here. Don't let... More

ShyKatz is a quirky local place that serves an amazing breakfast. The décor is eclectic and the menu is large. You can get the traditional kind of eggs, bacon and hashbrown breakfast or go with something or go for a breakfast burrito or sandwich. We will definitely visit again.

1.2.3 Breakfast is delicious and filling. Be prepared to wait because it's not a fast place, but definitely worth the wait. Staff is friendly, but you will not have a waiter. Pay at the counter and someone delivers the order to your table. If you love dessert....this is your place. Plenty to pick from and all homemade.

This is a home converted to restaurant. All the tables and chairs do NOT match but give a homey feel to the place. Had BLT, burgers and Philly steak sandwich which were all good. No one hurry you to leave and looked like the local people went there a lot.
