Was walking thru Flemington looking for a place to have lunch. Came across this little cafe. Sat outside since it was warm out. Food was great. Service is ok. I have been here before a while ago., Definitely recommend it. Great breakfast and lunch menu.

I really wasn't happy with this place it seemed kind of dirty and the food was so-so. I'm not sure if I would frequent there again.

Came here for lunch a month ago and had a nice meal, and my wife had often been there. Today a couple of meals were nice, two were adequate but my son's was inedible. Also the food arrived over a five minute period and the...More

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...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....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...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
