Bradley Cafe..... Bradley Beach NJ

After reading on the CH about how great the Tacos were at the Bradley Cafe, today while in the area on business I decided to try it for lunch.....well, my bad luck follows me lately :( this is the second time I was watering at the mouth for a great meal I heard about (1st time was Shanghai Bun Matawan last week closed) and when I got to the Bradley Cafe, I got a spot right in front..but none the less CLOSED!!!!! Argggggggg! they are only open 7am-2:30pm & I was there 4pm...I just pulled the front door handle with no result and shook my head as I saw those Tacos and everything else on the Latina style cafe menu in my mind disappear....... Oh Well it's still on my to go list and I will try again for both places sometime in the future.....

Meanwhile has anyone been Lucky enough to try it?

  1. OOH! I was getting scared as I started to read your review. We love Bradley Cafe (tho have never had the tacos) and I was quite surprised to see you were disappointed (not that i know you but have found that I tend to agree with your opinions). I was almost relieved to find the disappointment was because it was closed.

    I've never had the tacos at the Bradley Cafe but do enjoy the Tortas (grilled sandwiches of various types - chicken, chorizo, egg and chorizo, et al). They appear expensive but are huge and I always make two meals out of one. The egg dishes are great too. The last time I was there I had the goat chilaquiles which were delicious. I'd never had chilaquiles before so can't vouch for their authenticity but they were so good.

    I can't wait to here you like the tacos.

      Missy.....I apologize for scaring you :) lol....but I will definitely get back there ASAP during business hours to try some of their delicious dishes you suggested including the Tacos.
      I am in the area often so it won't be long...I will report back as soon as I can.

      Take care
