Breakfast in the shore area?

We have been going to the Starving Artist in Ocean Grove for years now and they do a really good job overall and not to mention that the food server Tom is probally one of the best in the business. However, looking to branch out and find a few more favorites - WHAT WOULD YOU SUGGEST? Thanks...

  1. When I want breakfast or lunch n Ocean Grove Nagle's is the place for me. A shore tradition, also for breakfast and lunch, is Frank's in Asbury.

        I tried going to Nagel's this morning after reading loads of great reviews. Sadly they are closed on tuesdays, just my luck. Oh well there is always tomorrow. Cheers!

        Franks is Great!!! Make me feel like I am really at a local Jersey Diner. Anyone tried Sunset Diner???

        1. re: agruel

          Where exactly is Franks located in AP?

          1. re: JerzeyShore

            On the East side of Main Street, number 1406, a few blocks from the North end of town

      3. I enjoy Franks in AP but even better is The Sunset Diner it is technically in Wanammasa but it is the little boat house right on Sunset Ave on the Lake. Great french toast, and the Chilli & Cheddar omlette is to die for. Second fav is the crab, avocado & smoked gouda omlette. The place is a great find!

          1. We're at the Americana Diner every Sat and Sun for breakfast. I've tried pancakes and french toast at most places around Eatontown and it seems we always end up at the Americana. I do like the breakfast at The Turning Point, however, it's not cheap.

              Went to the American Diner last Saturday and had the french toast - it was delicious. Will be going back again soon. By the way their manager Clifford is tops. I knew him in his past life as a great shore area bartender...

          2. I always enjoy the In Between Cafe in Red Bank.

              What kind of food is the in between cafe? pancakes/french toast? what's the price point/atmosphere? thanks!

            2. Has anyone tried Edie's Luncheonette on Rumson Rd in Little Silver? I see it on my way to Sickles Market.

                Edie's is a great great old fashioned place. I have the 2 egg omelette - get whatever you want in it - and take half home for lunch. Potential bonus - once or twice a year, Springsteen drops by.

                1. re: val ann c

                  Edie's has always been excellent but finding a seat can be a problem. The place is tiny.

                  I also really like :
                  Rise & Shine Luncheonette on Rt. 35 in Eatontown
                  North Beach Grill on Atlantic Ave, in Long Branch
                  My Kitchen Witch in Monmouth Beach
                  Riverfront Cafe in Sea Bright

                  I understand Prairie in Monmouth Beach does an excellent breakfast also
