Amidst grass fields six miles east of Albany on HWY 20 rests Shirley May's. It doesn't look like much outside or in, but the breakfasts are pretty amazing! There are seven or eight tables and eight stools at the counter. To call the dcor eclectic would be an understatement. Photos, paintings and other renditions of various feline predators adorn the walls. A peek in the kitchen had one eyebrow slightly raised. Then, out came what, at first, looked like a half inch thick large pizza crust (13" or 14" in diameter), crowding the edges of a huge round plate. It was a PANCAKE! This monster would have stricken fear into the heart of Paul Bunyan. I looked around for a youth soccer team or some other large group who might have designs on such a thing! I ordered a cheese, mushroom and oregano omelet. They had no cheddar and no oregano, so I settled for Swiss. My bride had eggs, English muffins and hash browns. Shortly our meals arrived on platters, the size and type one might expect to find under a turkey on a Thanksgiving table! Portions were big and the food and preparation was wonderful. (As nothing is ever perfect, the Swiss was processed and between ordering and the table, the mushrooms somehow went by the wayside.) All in all, I liked it. If you give this place a try, make sure you're hungry. Shirley May will make sure won't be when you leave

Pros: Huge, good portions!

Cons: It's kind of remote.

Great place for breakfast. Pancakes are huge, but light and fluffy. Waitresses are so friendly you feel like you are sitting down to breakfast with family.
