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

We stopped by to pick up pastries for a special birthday treat. The place is so cute and looks like a great place for lunch. The pastries were absolutely delicious.

Enjoyed this quaint cafe and bakery. Californian and avocado blt both great sandwiches. Also enjoyed the tomato basil soup. Summer chicken soup less tasty with very little veggies/chicken. Blackberry cobbler and salted caramel cheesecake both spectacular!

Thank Txbarbarella
