This busy daytime cafe in Asbury Park serves breakfast, brunch and lunch classics just a block off the boardwalk. You can order everything from cinnamon rolls to lobster rolls, but you shouldn't leave without trying the famous family-recipe pancakes. The decor is bright, rustic and bordering on kitschy, perfect for a beach vacation mindset.
This upscale diner is the second location of the Montclair favorite and it caters to the hangry, slightly hungover crowd that often abound in Asbury Park on weekend mornings. The specialty here is pancakes, available in Buttermilk, Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, and more (though the Challah French Toast is a wise choice if you have a sweet tooth). The rest of the menu skews towards typical Americana fare—build-your-own burgers, a slew of signature sandwiches, and plenty of egg dishes of omelettes, scrambles, and or the Irish Eggs Benedict with corned beef hash.
