“Excellent Breakfast without the extreme Jersey Shore price hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Family of 5 ate here for breakfast. All food was brought promptly and it was hot. The quality of the pancakes and Belgium waffles were excellent. Would definitely return and recommend!

“Fun breakfast/lunch place ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

A great breakfast place in Avalon with good staff and affordable. Also offers lunch but the breakfast is a must have. The 7 mile island breakfast has it all!

“Nothing special for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

After we arrived in Avalon for the first time, we walked around and grabbed a bite of lunch at the Pudgie Pelican. Nice shore design, and very friendly helpful staff. But lunch items were ok at best. Cheese Steak was dry, burger that my wife ordered lacking as well. Really wanted to like the place, but food was only so so at best.

“Great Homestyle Breakfast at the Shore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

The Pudgy Pelican is a homestyle local breakfast and lunch place in Avalon NJ. Great food for a great price. Yesterday hubby had the 7 mile special...two eggs, home fries, your choice of meat, toast, and a shortstack of pancakes. I had one of their specials...a proscuitto and sharp provlone omelet with homefries and toast. The omelet was AMAZING! The flavors intertwined perfectly, and I love homefries and the Pudgy Pelican has some of the best. Avalon is a family town and all year locals and folks who come down year after year will be your fellow patrons. The servers are friendly and the pace is unhurried, which is good because who wants to hurry at the shore? Stop on in and enjoy the food, patrons and grab a couple of free local papers to read on the beach.
