Established and created in 2005 by longtime restaurateur and Baltimore native, Eddie (as he was affectionately known), Miss Shirley’s Cafe was named in loving memory of Miss Shirley, who was a close friend & former team member of Eddie's at The Beef Inn & The Catering People, who passed away in 2001. Shirley was known for her passion and joy in preparing dishes for catered celebrations in the community. Both Eddie & Shirley's photos are hung on the wall of the restaurants as a tribute to their fun-loving working relationship in the 1980's. The Miss Shirley's Cafe Culinary Team crafts bold original recipes and seasonal menus that reflect both a southern flare, as well as our team's love of Maryland ingredients. The menu offers specialties including: Chicken ‘N Waffles, Shrimp & Grits, Crab Hash & Fried Green Tomato Eggs Benedict & Coconut Cream Stuffed French Toast.
