This is a small, intimate, place to get breakfast or lunch. In the summer, there are tables outside on the porch as well, with large windows overlooking a very well maintained garden. The tables are covered in papers and drawing with the provided crayons is encouraged. The menu is not extensive, but has the usual fare (chicken salad, eggs with... More

Friendly waitress brought our coffee and juice within a very few short minutes. I had the banana walnut pancakes and they were great! Two of us had bacon, eggs,... More

Mine was grilled chicken over mixed greens with sliced pear, walnuts and walnut dressing. My friends both had the grilled chicken over mixed greens with beets and gorgonzola.... More

Based on the recommendations of others, we stopped in this local eatery for breakfast. Greeted quickly with a smile and seated right away. Although tempted to try the "breakfast pizza'. I opted for the "Jersey hash" and eggs. "Jersey hash" has pork roll instead of corned beef. Interesting and tasty. Our eggs and sides were served together and to order.... More

We went here kind of by accident as the first place we wanted to go was closed for the next 2 weeks, but that's ok. Saint location in Ocean Grove a few blocks from the beach and near the Great Auditorium. Beautiful area! We got seated as soon as we walked in the door and were greeted by some of... More

and what a pizza it is!!! Flat bread topped with peppers, onions, tomatoes, bacon, scrambled eggs and cheese. A great way to start your day. Service was great and atmosphere was funky. This is a not to be missed place.

Attempted to have brunch at Starving Artist Restaurant in Ocean Grove NJ. Entered restaurant at 11:30 and placed our order. Approximately 10 minutes go by and we started to notice that other customers who came in after us were eating. We waited a few more minutes and called our waitress over. She asked us if we wanted anything else to... More
