This small tea room has been a favorite for a couple of years. We have always made a point to stop for lunch on our way through town when traveling to Arkansas to visit our college kids.

Blue Horse Bakery is now at this address! 4 adults eating lunch and two were not happy with BLT paninis because bacon was cold and raw! Order mustard and got mayonnaise! Two of us had chicken salad and they were good! Cookies were less than average! Overbaked!

Shelly's is a small place with a great reputation. The desserts looked beautiful though I didn't eat one. Wonderful lunch entrees.

This little restuarant is located off the historic brick streets of Nacogdoches (the oldest town in Texas) The food, service and atmosphere is superb.

Shelley's is a must if you are in Nacogodoches for lunch. Brocolli salad and chicken salad are both healthy and good. Plenty of bakery desserts to choose from, also!

We got there early 11 am. Immediately seated and highchair provided. Chips and salsa very good but "green" sauce was too runny. Food was good but not great. Waiter kept drinks coming. Husband wasn't impressed but I was ok with food

Shelley's is a great place for lunch. I really like it when she occasionally has dinners (two separate servings)! Specially prepared meals for a special time!!!

I would recommend going for a full sandwich if you are hungry. The food was good but portions were a bit on the tiny side. The cup of soup is minuscule and the quiche looked like a half portion. The broccoli slaw was okay. All in all I expect big flavor if the portions are small. I also ordered a... More
