Walked down from the Villas near the Stockton Seaview. It's a throw back breakfast place that could be out of the 1950's. The breakfast omelets we had were great and the service was excellent.

I have had several breakfasts here, and never been disappointed. Not to new but kind has its own appeal. I remember years ago, used to be a bar. Food was hot tastey and service was prompt if a little stiff... I would recommend you try their breakfasts. I have not eaten lunch so can't comment it that.. Prices probably in... More

I was staying at the nearby gold resort for a tournament and didn't feel like dishing out $36 for breakfast for my son and I.

The breakfast here was ok- the pricing is the same as Shea's up the street which is so much better - the omelet here was flat-nice service

Nice little place and priced right. The place has history. Dates back to the Boardwalk Empire days. Food was good and the place even has its celebrity sighting with Eric Clapton eating here on more than one time. Jerry Ehrlich from the Great City of Philadelphia

We are here often for breakfast, it's always good. It's definitely no frills and there are a group of old men discussing politics but if you want a good cheap breakfast, head to JoJo's.
