Awesome Breakfast

I got the A-Frame and my wife got the Tommy Boy and we both LOVED our breakfast. They give you a lot of food that all tastes great at reasonable prices.

This place was a gem! It is tiny but packs a punch. The menu has plenty to choose from and they have some great options. I would suggest going a little early because it is not very large and there is limited seating. The portions are a good size. I had the bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich and my... More

I had high hopes after entering the place. Sort of semi-Margaritaville. But then the disappointment set in... First there were only two other tables with guests; yet our order took over 20 minutes to arrive. The breakfast was not even average. The potatoes looked like they came out of a freezer bag - not real home fries. The eggs were... More

My family has been going to OCNJ for a long time, but some how we missed this unique little restaurant just off the boardwalk on 8th. We won't miss it again! My wife and I were just there for 2 nights for the spring block party. Because of its rating on tripadvisor we decided to try it for breakfast. We... More

This is our go to breakfast place when in OC. The food is always fresh and service is always with a smile. Some of our favorite breakfast choices are Red, White and Blue waffles, Blue Hawaii French Toast, and OC local. We love the beachy decor and vacation feel to the place.

Ocean City Surf Cafe is my favorite breakfast place in town! But it's not just breakfast, lunch too. My favorite is the "Nose rider" best breakfast I've ever had. And cheap too for only about $7.00

Think of the OC Surf Cafe this way--it's the kind of place you would love to find for breakfast/ lunch when you are on vacation....in Florida (think Key West). Really really good food, a colorful, quirky sit-down joint with a surfing decor, surrounded by TV/ videos of surfers attacking waves..And that's before you even get to the food. Awesome breakfasts,... More

Ran into a friend here from my area, that frequents OC, so that assured me I made a good choice. I've never seen a fresher oatmeal in my life. The presentation was great as well. Our whole family enjoyed their breakfast and we walked it off on the boardwalk.
