      Your very welcome Missy......they certainly deserve good reviews!.....remember they are open all week 7am-2:30pm ...closed on Tuesdays.. enjoy!

    2. It's local and I'll take your recommendation. Maybe next week after the holidays.

      1. Had breakfast there this morning; had the eggs over hot sauce and had them add some spanish sausage. On the side asked for some pico de gallo too. All I can say is YUMMY! For what it is worth, they make the BEST pico de gallo I have ever eaten! Try some next time you go.

          catlady that sounds delish.....
          gonna check out the Pico de gallo asap...everthing they serve there is really good. I usually get the Shrimp scampi appetizer and use insane garlic sauce to drizzle on everything else I order

            I would never have thought to order the shrimp scampi but will have to do so the next time I am there That is if I can pass up the chilaquiles con barbacoa. There tortas (grilled sandwiches) are very good too, especially the one with chorizo.

            1. re: missybean

              They also make their version of a "Cubano" style sandwich that is Gigantic it's definitely for two people I was told.

            and 1 jalape~o (minced), bunch of cilantro. , squeeze 1 lime, salt and pepper. Combine all and "that it"..ready to eat...enjoy!!
            ...if you want to tried it on tuesday's is o.k.
            The rest of the days I am glad to made it for you at Bradley Cafe.

            1. I have been living in California for the past 10 years but lived in Bradley Beach in the mid 90s. Used to go to Soto's (Bradley Cafe) every week. The huevos rancheros are so good I never got anything else. I now go every summer with my 3 kids when back in NJ visiting family.
