Shaker's is an institution in So Pas, located at Fair Oaks Avenue just off the Arroyo Parkway (formerly Pasadena Freeway), also known as California Highway 110. It's a diner from the 1950s but it hasn't gotten old. Everything is in good working order and there's no sign of wear and tear. Even better, the food is still good and there... More

My Son just loves this place for over 10 years now.He just inhales their French Toast which is very good by the way. I can highly recommend it for breakfast but lunch and dinner is another story.

We had here our breakfast because our hotel has none. The staff was very friendly and we had a nice place at the window. The food was good and more than enough. The coffee mug was always full. The place was almost full but we didn’t feel it as is. The food was good, fresh and also the juice was... More

I like Shakers. I had the Avocado, bacon, tomato and swiss cheese omelette which was prepared very nicely. The English Muffin was well toasted and the hash browns were crispy just like I like them! My girl had the cheese blintz's with strawberries and cream and she ate them all which says alot! The hostess and waitress were very friendly... More

Expected more as we had read the reviews, but it didn't compare. Food was subpar. Fried chicken strips had to be sent back as it was obvious they were overcooked. Chicken sandwich was tough. The staff was slow, more involved in boxing up cakes and pies than attending to customers. My cook float didn't fill the glass. Too bad, sounds... More

Had a crispy chicken sandwich, which has to be the worst meal at this restaurant. Normally eat their dinner special or have a great breakfast. This time wanted to eat light. Basically, the chicken was over cooked. Our guest, kept sending her vegetarian sandwich back. It was over cooked. Felt sorry for the server, but she did a terrific job.

Plenty of parkings, went on a busy Sunday afternoon and got seated within 10 minutes! If you hate waiting, seat at the bar. The services are prompt, and the food is fantastic! The atmosphere is friendly and causal, good for families.

They are terrific here, but, when we went, Saturday mid-afternoon, it was not too full anyway and everyone in there were of a certain age (and I don't mean young). They treated us like old age pensioners, but I guess we now are. It was nice and did not make us feel idiots. We had a bottle of tipple and... More

With rock 'n' roll music playing, delicious diner-style food is served promptly and with care by veteran servers Sandy, Liz and Mary. Sit at counter stools or booths and you're sure to make new friends as folks come and go. The #1 breakfast is my fav, and the daily waffle special is $2 off. Their zucchini bread travels well.

I'm pretty much resigned to their Breakfast here. They make their own breads, biscuits and desserts. Quick friendly service good down home cooking with a great flow of people all the time.
