New name, new owners and a really nice change

New owners and a new name, Third Avenue Cafe. Nicely remodeled and very pleasant. Owners and staff couldn't be nicer. The homemade chips are great and the soups are very good. Give the cafe a try. Kid friendly atmosphere, right in town. Support local business!

The staff here was great, very welcoming and super friendly, wanted to make sure that your experience was a pleasant one. You are offered a wide selection of food. The food is a mix of diner type food to more fine selections, they really want to appeal to all customers and tastes. Very family friendly environment. Clean establishment, from the... More

It took too much time for for any staff member to acknowledge us and they were not busy. After placing my order it came out wrong and it was over priced. The good news is that they cleaned up and decorated the interior which gives it a nice sunny lift.

Who's On Third is in the midst of a major transformation. The long-time diner-like spot, one of the few places (oddly in such an upmarket town) to eat, is progressively going upscale. It's a good move, I think, fits the town. On the plus side, wandered in for a latish lunch this weekend (February, off season) and it was reasonably... More

new owners have kept comfortable/friendly feel. Hearty breakfast with some new touches. Worth seeking out when in the area.

We arrived after the kitchen had closed, but they put on a fresh pot of coffee which was what we were looking for. The sign says "local roasters", and I can attest to a great cup of coffee served by a waiter who seemed genuinely happy to be helping us.

I've dined at the old Who's On Third, and before that (many years ago), Dales. The new owners, who were there when we visited today, are warm and really aim to please. They've brightened the interior with a beach theme, but they've kept the "place to meet and greet" casual coffee shop atmosphere. In fact, they have a small array... More

A few days in Spring Lake and we only dined once at WOT. The breakfast was the best breakfasts we have had in a restaurant. (This does not include our granddaughter's perfect pancakes...) The serve was first rate, informative and very polite. This dining establishment makes me feel like I am in the 50's again - real down home folks.... More

We ate breakfast here when we stayed in Spring Lake recently, and we were so happy we did! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was plentiful and delicious, and the coffee was great! They had a varied menu with eggs, pancakes, french toast-pretty much anything you might want for breakfast. The meals were hot and fresh, and... More
