A classic breakfast restaurant, although I think they serve lunch and dinner too. Friendly service, big portions, delicious food.

I always, always have the veggie omelet here. The owner, Renee, chops all the fresh vegetables and the omelet tastes great and is good for you. Then, I spoil this nutritional high by having home fries, also made fresh. Oh well.

Renee's is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Portions are huge and the service is excellent. For breakfast I love the hash with a grilled muffin on the side. For lunch I love Renee's homemade soup and a BLT, but there are lots of good options.

We found Big Shirl's just driving by, and from the look of the parking lot and crowd surrounding this place we had high expectations! We were right about our instincts and were seated quickly. Although the staff and waitress were apologetic about the wait, we were served quite promptly with large portions of breakfast! Be prepared for a wait if... More
