Shelly's in Novato

Inspired by a chowhound's rec I went to Shelly's for breakfast yesterday. It was a cozy neighborhood cafe, with several customers sitting around who seemed to be regulars.

The menu was a little more pricy than one would expect in such a modest place - plain eggs with spuds and toast was $6.00. Coffee was $1.50.

I ordered their allegedly "fabulous" corned beef hash with scrambled eggs and toast ($8.50). It consisted of big ungainly chunks of dry, unpeeled mealy potatoes (probably their home fries doing double-duty). This was barely browned and topped with square-cut pieces of thinly-sliced sandwich meat of the corned beef persuasion, the sort you would find in plastic packages in the supermarket. These were warmed up a bit. Then for onion, they strewed some longish pieces of scallions on top. It was the weirdest and worst corned beef hash I have ever had. $12 with coffee, tax and tip.
