Shopsins’s General Store puts on absolutely no airs. This diner is known for its rough and curt approach to breakfast service, so you better be ready. While New Yorkers might be prepared for this particular type of grit, your grandmother from the Midwest may not. But it’s all a part of Shopsin’s charm.

The menu itself is huge so there’s really something for everyone. Included on the menu is also the Shopsin’s cheeky humor, such as, “one adult per kid” and “we cannot accommodate severe allergies.” We told you, if you’re sensitive, Shopsin’s is not for you. Even if it’s not your thing, this place is something to be experienced and seen.

And of course, there’s the food. Some honorable mentions on the seemingly endless and hilarious menu include mac and cheese pancakes, name plates that include “Auntie,” “Bastard” and “Hunky Dory,” slutty stuffed pancakes, pancake sandwiches (even with schnitzel!), and poutine.

For the hungry bruncher with a wicked sense of humor, this place was made for you.
