The buzz at Miss Shirley’s is about more than the delicious Coconut Cream Stuffed French Toast. The Roland Park landmark is ready for its close up appearance on Guy Fieri’s Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.
The cafe’s chef Brigitte O. Bledsoe is featured in the episode as well as the cafe’s original Roland Park location. It’s opened up two other locations since.
“It’s very exciting to be on the Food Network,” said Bledsoe. “The crew was amazing to work with, they made you feel right at home.”

Bledsoe says the hardest part was not being able to tell anyone.
“Every year we’re very fortunate. Every year we feel like we sort of reached them all and they just keep coming, says David Dopkin, managing member of Miss Shirley’s Cafe. “We have a very talented team and my father taught our management team a lot over the years”
The national recognition for Miss Shirley’s comes as it celebrates their 10th anniversary and as it remembers its founded Eddie Dopkin.
“My father is really looking down and smiling and enjoying this because he was a regular fan of the show,” said David Dopkin. ” He would come in and say did you see this episode, did you see where Guy went, we gotta go check it out.”
Miss Shirley’s will join over a dozen Maryland restaurants featured on the show — who have since gained more fame with the help of celebrity chef Guy Fieri.MORE NEWS: Mount St. Mary's Defeats Central Connecticut 65-50
