Shanty Cafe

How I heard of this place: For the past decade, I have driven by this shanty, a stand-alone establishment serving diner-style cuisine dozens of times. Never had the draw been greater to enter its doors. After a full morning of moving, with the help of our amazing families and friends, we treated everyone to brunch!

Type of cuisine: We serve delicious breakfast and lunch and we are open at 6:00 and close at 3:00. We have a great menu, and innovative weekend specials!” A diner in every sense of the word, the Shanty offers American style breakfasts, sandwiches, burgers and salads sure to provide a days worth of calories and more – in just one meal.

Ambiance: A little shack of an establishment on the outside, the wood paneled interior walls say it all!

Dingy, drab, mismatched, yet full of simple diner pleasures from the 1950s make the Shanty a place to which locals return, a place where everybody really does know your name.
