looking for breakfast, monmouth co.

I have the day off on Monday from work and would like to just relax and find a nice breakfast that I can enjoy. It would great if it was a place that had outside seating (think it's going to be nice Monday!). I'm looking in the area from Highlands down to Asbury Park . Any suggestions?

  1. North Beach Grill - Atlantic Ave, Long Branch. Outdoor seating a couple blocks from the beach.

    Menu here, but be aware that most of the best stuff is posted on blackboards.. Stunning Black Russians!

      Equal Mark - Curious, are those Black Russian Bagels you speak of? I have never been able to find a place in the local area that has them, just Jersey Boy Bagel all the way up in East Hanover NJ ...thank you for your help.

        I might be mistaken but I think that the Bagel Oven on Monmouth St in Red Bank has Black Russian bagels. I think they have the BEST local bagels, anyway, so you might want to check it out. Don't confuse it with the Bagel Station which is further down on Monmouth St, closer to the train station.

    2. We live in Middletown and the best breakfast in this area, IMHO, is Turning Point in Holmdel. I understand that they have a new location in Pier Village, Long Branch. I'd recommend giving that a try. Not oceanfront or outside seating, but very close to the ocean in LB.

      There's a place in Sea Bright next to the Post Office that has outside seating along Ocean Ave and has excellent breakfast. That's also worth a try. Let us know where you go and how you like it.

      1. Yes, the place in Pier village in long branch is quite good and they have outdoor seating. I would call ahead first as a lot of restaurants are closed on mondays.

          We went to Turning Point yesterday (Pier Village). I had their lemon-blueberry pancakes, as usual. Love the breakfast.....

        2. We went to the Turning Point in Little Silver today for the first time and were underwhelmed. Nice space with friendly service but the food was just so so and not served very hot. Very good coffee however but no refill offer. Bottom line _ $28 for two including tax and tip it, simple was not worth the price or the time and effor to get there.

            Right on...was a regular at TP, all locations, but the food is going downhill, the service can be extremely rushed or very slow, no happy medium. Lots of noisy kids (the parents could care less who they are annoying) and cold pancakes were the kiss of death for me! Also, seating is near the bathrooms and the parade of people back and forth is not my idea of a fun breakfast or lunch!!!!

          2. I know this post is old, but I wnet the other day for lunch for Edie's on Rumson Road in Little Silver. DE-LISH!!! We both had lobster salad rolls that were very good! The place is an old charm, very small inside, but such a warm sensation when you arrive by the family.

            No website, but I found this link for the menu:


            I was there on Tuesday, and the place was rather crowded, but I will definately go back. They are only open for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week.
