Great Vintage Sandwich and ice cream place

Really nice burger and sandwich place in a 1901 converted drug store. A real throwback to an early era. prices decent. The kids menu portions are HUGE! Great pastrami. Ice creams and sundaes also very good.

Food was delicious. We all ate something different and everyone agreed food was good. Expect to spend $10 per person.

Went for lunch. Extensive and cheap menu. I spent the extra money for fries, they tasted a little better than frozen crinkle cut ones.

nagle's is a place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner or just an ice cream cone or sundae, chocolate egg cream. This place is an institution in Ocean Grove and been there very long time/ Tables have a glass over old newpaper articles from old newspapers in ocean Grove so you can travel back in time while you eat.

We both ordered the veggie omelet. When they arrived piping hot, they were so big and juicy that we could have split one and still had leftovers . They were so tasty .
