I have read last few reviews and quite frankly I am floored. I am rather very honest with any input that I place and feel I have a pretty good following here and can't seem to figure out why the last few reviews have been so poor of this place I guess the only thing I can think of is... More

Pretty decent breakfast with pretty decent service in this charmingly funky little establishment. Funky decor, casual atmosphere and some interesting choices.,

We moved to Hunterdon County about a year ago and Shaker Cafe quickly became one of our favorite places. The breakfasts were wonderful and one of the best parts about it was the ambiance. The entire cafe was lined with shelves filled with salt and pepper shakers of every kind you can imagine....so whimsical and fun and contributed to the... More

I used to really like the "Shaker" and once enjoyed many meals here. ( a couple of owners ago, I think. Unexplained black particles in my scrambled eggs and my husband ordered his eggs over medium and they arrived quite hard. ( I would have sent them back.... I survived my speckled scrambled eggs, as I assumed it was burnt... More

I feel bad writing this review, but hope somehow the new owners see this. I went in for breakfast, again, after having a first bad experience. Wanted to try it again hoping maybe I went in on a bad day, but this time was worse. I got the breakfast avocado sandwich. This used to be my favorite sandwich from The... More

Filled with tchotchkes & interesting art with friendly service, this is a fun cafe along Main Street, Flemington's cafe row. Although my favorite BLT was poorly organized & lacking a whole lot of bacon, other sandwich choices, such as the Quebecois, were noteworthy; but next time I think I'll try an interesting omelet.

Had breakfast here recently. Omelets were very good and the side order of potatoes was perfect! Service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely return!

I should have checked the recent reviews before we picked this restaurant for lunch today. My wife had the Grilled Cheese Sandwich w/tomato which didn’t remind either one of us what a decent grilled cheese sandwich looked or tasted like. It left a lot to be desired. At this point I would have given this place a poor review, but... More

The Shaker has had a long and rich history. For about 20 years, the Shaker has been synonymous with a vibrant atmosphere and great food. In January 2010, the Shaker was purchased by Charles Dempsey. Charles continues to enrich the Shaker vision and follow in the path of the Shaker legacy.Even though the ownership has changed the shaker aims to do even better. We now accept credit cards, have extended hours, and have sourced our produce from a local farms for even greater quality food at the same low prices.Look for in 2011: We're now open Saturdays for Breakfast (8-12). We'll also be introducing new menu items after they're perfected in our test kitchen (which happens to be the Dempsey household!).Thank you for your interested in the Shaker :)-- Charles Dempsey & family Hours of OperationMonday - 7am - 3pmTuesday - 7am - 3pmWednesday - 7am-3pmThursday - 7am - 3pmFriday - 7am - 9:pmFriday (Dinner) - 5pm - 9pmSaturday -8:am-12:00pmSunday - 8am - 1pm
