I recently ate at Shut Up and Eat for the first time, and I can honestly say that it was the best breakfast I've ever had in my life. I didn't think Nutella stuffed French toast could be a bad thing, but I also didn't realize how heavenly and amazing it COULD be. If a plate of French toast could change your life, this is most definitely it. Make sure to order a short stack though as Heaven tends to fill you up pretty fast.

This place is filled with quirky decor and mismatched cups. The service is fantastic and most of the staff are dressed in pajamas. Shut Up and Eat reminds me of The 50's Prime Time Cafe in Walt Disney World, but much edgier and much better. If you're ever in the area you definitely need to stop by and experience this place for yourself. Be sure to order the French toast and see God.

Shut Up and Eat is cash only so make sure you bring some with you to avoid ATM fees. When you're done eating you can just leave the money on the table and bolt (or you can go up and pay). There's a good chance the entire diner will wish you a good-bye though, so be ready and make sure you say good-bye back! Then you can leave and spend the rest of the day talking about how great your lunch/breakfast/whatever was. It's been over 24 hours and I'm still talking about it.

The atmosphere is fun and the employees are energetic. Food is alright, about what you would expect from a diner. It seems a bit dirty and cluttered. My mother almost had a panic attack when I took her! Plus, you get a discount on your bill if you come in wearing your PJs.
