While visiting Toms River on a business trip I stopped in. They have a very expansive menu. I like it so much, I went back a second day in a row.

Visited for breakfast last week. Fun atmosphere and what I liked the best no cell phones. Largest variety of waffle combinations that I have ever seen. Food was very good. My only problem was when the check came it was not itemized and was very high for breakfast standards. We had 2 adults and 3 12 yr olds. Ordered waffles... More

If you're in the area, be sure to grab a bite at this zany restaurant. This is the most fun place to eat in Ocean County, if not South Jersey. From the staff antics, madcap decor, & extensive (and fun) menu, you'll be glad you came. This is the Elvis Burger (peanut butter, bacon and fried bananas). Sounds odd but... More

It started off great with a big "Hi" the moment we walked in-not just the staff but the patrons too! You can come in pajamas (real ones that match) and get a discount on your meal. The menu is amazing with award winning waffles and burgers. You can even get your burger on a waffle. We had some picky eaters... More

This is a very unique, super-casual spot in Toms River's downtown area. I've been at least 5 times for breakfast and lunch. Read the other reviews for general comments- I agree with most. The food is excellent, quick and fairly priced. The staff is what makes it special. Last time, the owner swiped a tater tot off of my plate... More

My husband and I ate here for the first time this past weekend. Loved it! The staff is dressed in pajamas and everyone greets you as soon as you walk in. It is a fun and relaxing environment. They have a toy corner for the kids, and toys hanging up all over the walls and ceiling . The menu is... More

When you walk in the door and the whole staff clad in pajamas shouts out 'Hi!', you know it is going to be a fun time. It only gets better from there! We were in Toms River for three days and each day was Shut Up and Eat for breakfast. Each and every meal was fantastic which is not an... More

I love this place!! Anywhere that lets you show up in your pj's & you get a discount for it is my kind of place! The food is excellent & always freshly made. Perfect size portions & very reasonable price. My husband & daughter couldn't stop talking about the delicious fresh squeezed O.J. Our waitress was a real sweetheart &... More

This kitschy restaurant serves just ordinary breadfast fare. The staff is friendly, service is okay but I was hoping for a bit more of a breakfast than I cook at home. The menu is extensive, if repetitive. Nothing beyond just average here. Prices are the going rate for the area. I think the cook staff needs refreshed.

Our family went to have breakfast here. It is an interesting place with an eclectic collection of tables, chairs, plates, cups and utensils. Kitschy art on the walls mixing old Americana with farm life. All staff wear pajamas as their uniform. Food is very generous and really good. Three table mates had the Nutella and strawberry stuffed French toast which... More
