We tried a different cafe every morning while visiting ocnj. The food was great with a fresh variety from the normal breakfast foods! The cafe is very small but it's clean and has great decor!

The decor, especially the color scheme, is very relaxing. Food was excellent, had the crab sandwich and the steak and eggs taco. Kelly kelly (iced tea + pineapple juice) was delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. Great value too! What more could you ask for?

Love this place! We had breakfast here three times and lunch once this week. Everything was good. Best French toast. I love how it's decorated inside. And it's so CLEAN. Everyone that works there is so pleasant. This is how to run a restaurant. We've tried other places for breakfast, always come back to OC Surf Café.

We stop by every time we're in town. This family-owned gem is a must. The prices are reasonable and the food never disappoints. The red, white & blue pancakes, waffles and French toast are delish!! The burrito is yummy too!! You must try this place!
