Another name of a restaurant that was recommended multiple times by other attendees of the IA Summit conference in Baltimore, Maryland the first weekend of April was Miss Shirley’s Cafe. Since I had a little time before I had to fly out on Monday, I got up early to get breakfast there.
I started out with a phenomenal spicy bloody mary, the Spicy Shirley, their version of a Bloody Mary with Absolut Citron, Green Tomato Slice, Pickled Okra, Peppers, Jalapenos, Celery, Peppadews, Lemon Wedge & Lime Wedge, with an Old Bay Rim. I mean, just look at this beautiful thing! I will definitely remember the option of an Old Bay rim.
For my eating portion, I was so so so torn between so many options, and cursed myself for not coming earlier than the day I had to fly out. I will not make that mistake next time, that’s for sure. Finally, I settled on the Trio of Breakfast Sliders, served with Scrambled Eggs – one with White Cheddar & House-Made Carolina Pulled Pork, one with White Cheddar Cheese & Applewood-Smoked Bacon & one with Goat Cheese, Spinach & Roasted Red Pepper, all on Mini Challah Rolls & choice of Shredded Potato & Onion Hash Browns or Savory Grits with Diced Bacon (I picked the grits).
No wonder Miss Shirley’s Cafe has such acclaim, making the local Baltimore magazine’s list multiple times in categories in the Best Restaurants. There is also a mobile truck version, also serving their menu of breakfast, brunch, lunch.
