Great lunch both days!

I ate lunch here the both days I was in Ocean Grove. The salads and veggie wrap were very good. I loved that the ice tea was unsweetened. Everything was fresh and tasty and the service was friendly. Also, great choices for vegetarians and vegans!

When I'm in Ocean Grove and want breakfast, I always go to "The Starving Artist". Everything so I thought is homemade from scratch and is delicious!!! My favorite breakfast was the Banana Walnut Pancakes....... But unfortunately, this time they didn't live up to their reputation when I order something else. Instead of the delicious pancakes I usually order, I decided... More

I've been here for both breakfasts and lunches and been pleased with each. A favorite breakfast is the cream cheese stuffed french toast. Although their omelettes are also damn good and I love to see what the days special omelette is. I've had wraps and special sandwiches for lunch, I really love their pasta and vegetables the best.

Some of us had salads, others had wraps, black bean burger. Everyone said their food was good. Expect to spend $10 per person for lunch.

We go frequently for blueberry pancakes/eggs and my wife loves the chicken avocado salad. It's funky, gets very hectic during the prime season and expect a wait for outdoor seating.

I've been reading reviews about the fresh food and I just couldn't help myself. We expected so much more from this lovely looking place. Our breakfast was less than mediocre. We shared an omelet, breakfast burrito and pancakes. Everything was nothing much to speak of. Pretty sure the side of turkey sausages was frozen jimmy dean or similar brand patties!... More

Always a good lunch in Ocean Grove, this is a funky and interesting place. So I'm overlooking the fact that they are getting a slow start to bring ready for the season seems the kitchen can't keep up with the bigger crowd. I trust they'll get it together.

Wanted to like this place s it seems quirky and quaint but our lunch here was a disaster. We read on yelp that the Starving Artist served good food quick. Took two hungry, hot and tired kids there around 10 on Sunday morning. Wait time was 35 minutes. We toughed it out as we had to leave and drive for... More
