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!

We spend a fair amount of time in the Spring Lake/Belmar area each summer and have wanted to try this restaurant but never had the occasion. We finally tried it and will not go back. The service is very slow, including just being acknowledged and seated when you walk in. It seemed like there was no organization as to who... More

Stumbled in with our own bottle of wine on recommendation of wine and beer store across the street. First time in Spring Lake and couldn't have been happier with my meal choice. Had the Ahi tuna perfectly seasoned with a cilantro lime dressing over a large bed of assorted greens. No fancy sides to distract, just a good sized portion... More

Have been here for hot chocolate ( Ghirardelli!), weekday lunch and Sunday brunch. The fig and apple flatbread is a perfect light lunch. Delicious combination of flavors! Also had the Crabby Omelette, ( mine ordered with egg whites) which was large and had loads of REAL crab inside. The horseradish sauce was a perfect compliment to the omelette. The Cinnamon... 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.
