Lovely, Long, Lunch

The Starving Artist's outside seating in the summer is always a draw. This time we visited earlier than usual and sat inside. Food as ever was consistently good. They even indicated that they had gluten free bread if needed. I decided on a salad and it was fresh and delicious. My husband ordered... read more

Great menu selections well priced and served with a smile. Patrons return time and again for the pancakes served with a variety of toppings.

The waitstaff was super friendly and very attentive. Three of us sat for breakfast and all of us could not believe how amazingly delicious the breakfast was. The omelette with veggies was so fresh and tasty that we gobbled it up!! The French toast was soft and fresh and just scrumptious!! I am so glad we found this place. These... More

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here during our stay at the beach. Nestled in the quaint, historic, downtown area and was within walking distance of our inn, the boardwalk and the ocean! Clean,family friendly, great food and great service... we could not ask for more!

Starving Artist has, in my opinion, consistently provided good food and good service over the years. The atmosphere is pleasant and works well with the authentic historical nature of the town. It is a couple of blocks off the beaten track and a nice treasure. But it is not unknown to most, as can be seen by the crowds in... More

i cant say enough about Starving Artist. The food is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. Service is great - everyone is very friendly - in the warm weather they have a little outdoor area that is actually covered by a roof - sometimes the wait is a little long but well well worth it.

We ordered poached eggs, the virtuoso which is egg salad and tunafish salad, banana walnut pancakes, and a western omelette. The food was very good. Decaf was also very good. Nice server.

We have meetings there for the Shore Action League, meet for a weekly breakfast with friends, and when the weather is warm love eating outside in the gardens... I also enjoy the yearly shows that are put on in the garden....they are... More
