Where to eat breakfast outdoors

Want to eat breakfast outdoors this weekend. Any ideas? I live in Monmouth County, but willing to travel! Food is as important as view! Don't want to sit at a table on the sidewalk of a busy intersection ( Ibby's in Freehold comes to mind! )

  1. Zoe's on Center Street in Atlantic Highlands has a small outdoor patio. Food is good, the service can be spotty. Sissy's at the Atlantic Highlands harbor also has outdoor seating with a nice view.

    1. a few come to mind:
      - North Beach Grille in Long Branch
      - Riverfront Cafe in Sea Bright
      - My Kitchen Witch in Monmouth Beach

      IMO they all have above average breakfast choices however, My Kitchen Witch wins hands down. - Limited seating outside so be prepared to wait - but worth it!

            Have you been to Sunset Landing lately? It used to be our "go-to" place for outdoor breakfast and normally would be my first recommendation but the past few times we have been there we have been severely dissapointed. In our most recent visits the food was served cold, burned or just down right not tastey :(
            Its such a shame b/c the atmosphere is unique and fun.

        2. bayside cafe in lavallette if it is still there and is open for the season? had a nice breakfast there awhile back.

          1. Nearly all the places in Ocean Grove have outdoor seating - Nagles, Starving Artist, Yvonne's, Raspberry Cafe. I think Starving Artist has the best breakfasts....

            1. Black Trumpet's new location - Ocean Avenue in Spring Lake w/ ocean views.
