Step back to a 1955 cash only diner. Now you get the picture. They serve hot freshly cooked to order breakfast and lunch. Pork roll is a jersey shore favorite. Hard rolls. Another jersey shore favorite. French toast is beautiful. Great pancakes. Everything is good...More

We walk from our home to Ray's in Sea Girt for breakfast from time-to-time and have never been disappointed there. Good food, a relaxed atmosphere, and friendly staff.

Most overrated "cafe" I have been to. Tried it twice and the food was average to poor. More importantly, the one thing I would expect a place like this to get right is the coffee. But, the coffee was abysmal both times...sour, stale and unsatisfying....More

The locals always know the best places to eat, and for over 20 years that place has been Ray's Cafe. With our original Sea Girt location to our "newbie" cafe & bistro in Spring Lake you'll always have a place to go for a bite to eat.
