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

Gay friends encouraged us to eat here. Loved the simplicity of the menu and the tastiness of the food. Nice environment and good location,. Wish it was open in the evening

What a gem of a restaurant in Ocean grove, NJ. We had to wait about 15 minutes before being seated, but it was well worth it. My wife & I both enjoyed our breakfast. We loved everything about this little restaurant. We can’t wait to go back.
