Best breakfast in Sea Girt.

If you haven't been to Ray's restaurant, you must go. Try the short stack or the traditional ham and eggs. Yum. What a treat. Open all year round.

Somewhat disappointed in the food for the price, but the atmosphere was worth it. the service was good and the live jazz in the background was awesome.

Forget the omelets unless you like them to look like toast. The pancakes, bacon and breakfast potatoes were terrific. The portions were large and the service great. Just turn down the grill before adding the eggs.

We had a work event there- - 30+ people. The food was delicious (apps, salad, entree, and dessert) and the atmosphere was cozy. The service was good and we had a wonderful time!

It's the first place we go when we come into town; in fact my husband plans the drive so that we get there in time for breakfast. If you're a local, it's a "where everybody knows your name" kind of place to have a nice relaxing breakfast. Sorry, we've never had dinner there.

They have an awesome breakfast that is quick and delicious. It is like having breakfast at home, but without the effort! The service is very good as well.

We stopped at Ray's before church on a recent Sunday. It's an okay sort of place. The menu is pretty much the standard breakfast fare. The service was very good, the food was fine, the atmosphere is okay.

Ray's Cafe is a nice little place. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. It is a little more upscale then your usual little place in town, nice enough to go out for a nice dinner, and casual enough to take the kids in shorts and flip flops.
