As part of my Baltimore Vacation and the first stop in and around Baltimore we stopped at Miss Shirley’s Cafe in Roland Park. After the epic drive from Albany, New York we were surely in need for something to eat. So why not stop by a place that has been featured on many television shows such as Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Miss Shirley’s Cafe was established in 2005 and has been serving up Southern fundamentals and the abundance of fresh ingredients. As said on their about page on their website, but did they deliver on this?
After looking over the menu, as this restaurant hadn’t been on my radar. We had met up with Lindsay’s sister and she had suggested that we try out this restaurant. So I wasn’t sure what to expect, but one thing I did quickly learn that this place was packed! People were coming and going and everyone seemed to be very pleased with what they were getting.
Searching the menu they had a lot of breakfast and lunch items to choose from which isn’t shocking for a place that’s only open for lunch and breakfast. I noticed an abundance of options to choose from and after narrowing it down with a slight want to have something that was featured on Guy Fieri show.
I decided to go with the The Bay-O Po’ Boy which is mini jumbo crap cakes on a ciabatta. Yeah, there’s some other ingredients in this sandwich outside of it being an obvious oxymoron. It was real good, granted I wish there was more crab cakes, but then again it wouldn’t be mini jumbo.
Lindsay decided on getting a salad, yeah, how exciting right? But it wasn’t just any salad, it was as they call it A Salad To Call Your Own, which allowed her to get the ingredients she wanted and she didn’t have to pick through and empty half of her salad because of something she didn’t want.
As for her sister and her boyfriend, they both got the chicken and waffles. Oh did those look fantastic too!
The cafe was nothing too special, they didn’t have anything different from any other restaurant I’ve been to. They just had very good service, good food
