Our "Go To" Place

A nice place to go to for any meal, with friends or family. Never had anything unpleasant. The French Toast is amazing!! Been there so many times, I cannot remember.

This is a small, intimate but casual cafe right on the corner of 6th Street and Long Beach Boulevard in Ship Bottom. Over one half of the cafe is in a greenhouse type structure but open to the rest of the cafe. The menu is unbelievable. It includes foods for people with special dietary needs with items that are already... More

We are breakfast kind of people when at the shore. So this review is only for that. This is one of our favorite places to go. In the 20 something years we have never been disappointed. The breakfast selection is good and the food always great. The location makes it nice also, since after breakfast you can cross the street... More

When you stop at a chain restaurant, you know what to expect from both the menu and food. It is the staff that can make the difference. But a meal in a local restaurant in a resort area can either be a happy surprise or disappointment. We try to pick restaurants that look like they are open beyond the tourist... More

The Greenhouse Café, like an old friend, is easy to take for granted. I have eaten there for years-lunch and dinner-and never been disappointed. My particular favorite is all of their soups and fish dishes. Everything is fresh and delicious. The wait staff is always helpful and the owner is on site and always easy to find. A must visit.

Quality and quantity of food was excellent. We ate breakfast there but others in our party ate lunch there and thought the same. French toast was yummy!
