weekend breakfast

where can you go for breakfast ( not brunch) on the weekend in Monmouth county to get interesting omelets, good pancakes, French toast, etc? - preferably a place where you can linger over a cup or two of coffee? sort of like home, but out... what do you think of Yvonne's in Ocean Grove? I know there is always The Tuning Point... other suggestions?

  1. What about Franks in Asbury, Nagles in Ocean Grove, Sunset Landing in Asbury or Blue Swan Diner in Ocean Twp.?

    1. What about Edie's in Little Silver? I just love that place!! It is a tiny, homey, and yet delicious breakfast/lunch spot!


      1. Also, Mumford's in Tinton Falls on Apple St. They are not open on Sundays.


        1. chat n' nibble in asbury park... inn between in red bank... broadway diner in red bank

          1. Amy's Omelette House, Ocean Blvd, Long Branch.
            Is this "house of a thousand eggs" not an obvious choice? Reviews?

              I was also going to suggest Amy's. The have a huge selection of omlettes as well as other brekfast items. And the pancakes are pretty darn good. We also enjoy Sunset Landing, although, when busy lingering isn't always possible. Oh, there is also Starving Artist in Ocean Grove but again they can get quite busy.

                Amy's is one of my favorites.

            2. There is "The Cove" down in Brielle. *Lots* of omelette varieties as well as plenty of other breakfast items. They get quite busy weekends during the summer season but not so much now that Labor Day is past --- or so it seems, anyhow.

              We also enjoy Amy's in Long Branch (mentioned by several others). For some reason, I got the impression that Amy's and The Cove share the same ownership but that may be incorrect.

              I hope this helps :-)

                Same family from what I understand. I also believe the menu is the same.

                  Amy's family used to own Mariner's Cove but afaik they are currently under different ownership. I think Mariner's does a better job than Amy's though.

                2. The absolute BEST breakfast (the french toast is delicious here) is served at the In Between Cafe in Red Bank. My wife loves their California omelet, which is made with fresh spinach, sun dried tomatoes, fresh avacados and jack cheese, You can get it with egg whites only, leave out the cheese and it is still delicious. Fabulous food served piping hot. They have whole wheat pancakes, great breakfast sandwiches. The place is not fancy but it is well known and gets crowded later in the morning. They also do lunch.

                  1. I second the in between in red bank. Bob the owner/chef is very good and has never made me an under or overcooked over medium no small feat their fried potatoes are best around,try the 3 eggs with pancetta delicous.. pepperry. chewy. Zoes in atlantic highlands I haven't seen mentioned I know it has gotten lumped up before on this board but I like it i wish the potatoes were more like in btwn If your there for lunch at zoes must get the potatoe salad best in monmouth county if u care
