We seldom go out to eat breakfast, but we were on vacation so we read Trip Advisors reviews and decided to try Jellyfish Cafe. Not busy of an off season Friday morning but were met with a very friendly waitress , and even the owner...came out to welcome us. Wife ordered Eggs Benedict, and I got the traditional eggs, homefries and toast. Everything was cooked to order and as we requested. We both enjoyed everything since it was fresh. Wanted to go back on Saturday since it was that good, but place was packed since Irish and car enthusiasts were in town with a few dozen waiting outside to get in, so I guess we will have t wait till next summer to return and try their stuffed french toast. NOTE cook came out before we left on Friday and said they cook to order even if its not on the menu which is a valuable tip for next time.More

What can I say - - the Jellyfish cafe is a great family restaurant. The service is very good and pleasant. The food is well prepared, tasty and abundant. The coffee (black) is well brewed and flavorful. The staff caters to the young kids. Etch...a Sketch, crayons, etc. Expect to wait 10 - 15 minutes for seating, unless you arrive 8 AM.More

Great place for breakfast/lunch and family fun!!! My family and I enjoyed ourselves here every day of our vacation this year. I look forward to seeing the owner and his staff each day. The waitresses are always attentive and helpful while running at 100mph because...they don't get a break because of how busy they are. My favorite was Adrian but each one of them were wonderful. The food was cooked perfectly every time. I had such a great experience on the 1st morning of this week vacation when we came to this restaurant, so I have come back each day since. They are closed on Tuesdays so I will be staying at my hotel with a bowl of cereal and thinking about Wednesday breakfast at the Jellyfish!!!!More

Three friends and I came to The Jellyfish Cafe recently for breakfast. As soon as we walked, the service was incredibly friendly. The gentleman behind the counter (owner?) was funny and made us feel very welcome. We were sat outside and our waitress was very...friendly. I ordered the yogurt, granola and fruit. It was tasty. I forget what my friends ordered, but they were all happy with their meals. If you want friendly service and a good breakfast, The Jellyfish Cafe is worth a visit.More

Cute sea life-themed eatery in Wildwood Crest. We were welcomed by the pleasant lady working the register and shown to our seats promptly. The food came out hot and fast and our drinks were kept full throughout our meal. The meat lover's omelette was absolutely...packed with meat. The home fries were a little crispy and a little soft, just perfect. Would definitely return.More

What a gem. So beautifully decorated. Extremely clean restaurant . We visited the cafe which was close by our Accommodations at Sea Scape. Our waiter was very pleasant and helpful. Starters with coffee. Entrees consisted of chocolate swirl banana bread French Toast and myself had...Florentino eggs benedict. Both extremely delicious. The Hollindaise sauce extremely creamy which was awesome. As we were enjoying our meal couldn't help but notice the fish tank on the wall. Which wasn't a tank at all,but a video screen with a cd playing a aquarium videos. Per one of the waitress one of their customers made the frame around it. Very pretty. Overall we had a great meal. Definitely would recommendMore

Jellyfish Cafe is the best for breakfast or lunch on the Jersey shore The best waffles and the eggs are always cooked exactly the way you order them. Lunch...hoagies and burgers are generous in portion and fare in price. The kitchen, staff and hosts/owners are...pleasant , courteous and on top of everything!!! If you haven't tried it yet, please do, you won't be disappointed!!More

This place had an OK breakfast with poor service. Our waitress seemed very distracted and forgot things (and the place was fairly empty). Pancakes were bland, coffee was decent.
