Is Miss Shirley's Still Good?

I'll be in Baltimore this weekend and plan to try breakfast at Miss Shirley's on Cold Spring Lane. Has anyone been recently? I know it gets generally good reviews but recent 411 would be great.

  1. I don't know if you consider it recent, but there is a thread from 1/07 giving rave reviews.

      Thanks very much! Coconut french toast, the Saturday NYT crossword, and many cups of java sounds like a winning combination.

        I was there last week and really enjoyed a sandwich with egg, fried green tomato, cheese and bacon. My companion loved her omelet.

    2. I was there two weeks ago and had a really good breakfest. The pumpkin french toast was very good. Their sides are pretty awesome too. I got there at 8am, and got seated right away, by 9am there was a long line to be seated.

        My first time at Ms. Shirley's yesterday.....Just may be the most interesting breakfast /brunch place in Baltimore!

        The German apple pancake was very impressive!
        Can't wait to try something else next time....great menu!

      2. I got to Miss Shirley's on Saturday morning -- before the rush, luckily. I had the highly popular coconut french toast. I liked it, but I think I'd try some of the other stuff on the menu before having it again -- probably the apple pancake and the fried green tomatos. The andouille sausage was very good.

        I can definitely see how there are some service issues. Mine was fine, but the guys at the next table were really p'o'd at their server. The guy who paid wrote what I think was a very nasty note on his receipt.

        1. It's definitely my favorite place in Baltimore for lunch or brunch. Love the soft-shell crab salad with fried green tomatoes!

          1. My daughter and I took a friend two weeks ago, and I can assure you that the food is better than ever. ALso, no longer necessary to stand in those long lines since they moved across the street into a larger building. The Maryland Omlet with lump crabmeat is to die for.
