This is the best Upscale Resturant in South Jersey hands down. Service is Top Notch. The food is over the top for a seaside resort. Would recommend Cafe Loren to anyone!!

Every year we go to Café Loren (at least once, usually more than) and without exception, it is exceptional. Welcoming, lovely ambience and food is out of this world. Staff is delightful, plating is exquisite. Always a wonderful evening...worth every single penny! Highly recommend it to everyone.

I go to "Cafe Loren" every year. This year,I went twice in the two weeks I was in Avalon and it did not disappoint. From the moment I call for reservations to the friendly greeting by Patty (the owner) to the attention of an efficient staff-who often return year after year themselves-I'm thrilled to be back. But,the most important thing... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and we had an exceptional dinner. We were treated wonderfully. The staff was polite and efficient. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and clean. The food was superb: it was rich and so full of taste. My husband had fish and meat and all were cooked to perfection. I am a vegetarian and... More

My friends and I had dinner at Cafe Loren the other night and we all really enjoyed our meals. I had the filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly and I would kill for the recipe for the truffled corn veloute it was paired with. My friend had the veal Loren and they enjoyed their dish equally as well. The service...

My husband and I have traveled extensively and are well versed, with French inspired cuisine. With that being said, we were pleasantly surprised that this little gem on the Jersey shore could expertly prepare a duck breast just as well as Daniel in Manhattan. Service was attentive and the proprietor was on site ensuring that all guests were well taken... More

You can eat out at many restaurants in Avalon and Stone Harbor, but Cafe Loren is one of the few where you can dine. The menu has changed little over the years because so many guests appreciate the consistent quality that has made this restaurant the top choice on 7 Mile Island. We usually dine at Cafe Loren three or... More

We spend a great deal of time in Avalon but never tried Cafe Loren. My husband booked it for my birthday and it was a delightful evening. It is a little place that has been in Avalon for years. It has a very pleasant vibe and the food and service are excellent. My husband had the halibut and I ordered... More

Enjoyed a evening here with three couples. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We were lucky to get a table. We tried to make a reservation a week before but were told that they were booked solid for the week. We were lucky that someone must have made other plans and a table opened up. I am... More
