There are a number of counter seats that overlook the street as well as indoor and a few outdoor tables on the sidewalk. Unfortunately the indoor dining is currently unavailable. They offer a variety of breakfast dishes as well as fruits. Plenty of favored coffees...to choose. from. The service was good. The breakfast bowl was good - eggs served over pototoes with pieces of red onion mixed in. I also had slices of pork roll added, which cost extra, but there wasn't a lot of them.More

My wife and I were in Belmar for a week and got carry out from Stay Gold A few times. The salads and sandwiches for lunch we’re great. The breakfast sandwiches were mediocre at best, bagels were old and chewy. But the coffee was great.

I had the Sunshine Dream smoothie and the tuna stuffed avocados. Perfect. Sat outside on the most glorious day. I’m coming back.

This place is like what is being served here? It's a mystery as to where you place your order and where to get your food. What is this place STAY GOLD... the name doesn't tell you what it is. They need to revamp this company...name and get the menu down and get proper people to run this place.More

It's Father's Day morning and my wife treated me to the Stay Gold Café and Lounge that recently opened in the Quail Creek shopping center in the Ramtown section of Howell. We were pleasantly surprised to have a singer/guitarist performing at 10 am on a...Sunday morning, and hope they keep these traditions up as this fledgling business attempts to take hold in this section of Howell. We didn't know what to expect since we weren't even aware of their Belmar location, but found our high table/booth quite comfortable as our server, Mikey, came right over to assist us. The menu is not like a diner or Ihob or most typical eateries. The Turning Point is as close a comparison I can make, and yet the Stay Gold menu has more healthful items on it than the Turning Point, and this we saw as a big plus. But that's not to say you can't get eggs your way, or French toast. But there are also plenty of fresh juice combinations and grains and Acai bowls to make your visit here worthwhile. Also there is a full range of coffee and tea selections and we saw many folks stopping by for take lattes and cappuccinos. Normally Marie and I are straight coffee drinkers but were tempted to try the specialties here. So she had a decaf cappuccino while I tried a caramel latte, but being delightful for a special morning treat. We both selected a flatbread version of "bagel and lox", with a side order of crispy potatoes. All of it was delicious, and we were completely satisfied with our food. The service was also very good. We learned about Stay Gold and its other location and about the menu and the coffees from an endearing server named Mikey. We also teased him a bit about whether he recognized the music that was being played by the singer ("Stay" played in the style of Jackson Brown as opposed to its composer, Maurice Williams). He honestly admitted that he and most of the young staff didn't really know the oldies, but that at night, the entertainment focuses on more current standards. We plan on visiting Stay Gold quite a bit to try all of the vegan, vegetarian and traditional items on their menus. We really hope this review doesn't encourage you to visit the Howell location, because we don't want to fight the crowds, but we do hope the crowds come and they have a successful business in Ramtown.More

I love this location! It's close enough to the beach where you get those relaxed vibes, but without the rush of people. The place usually has a good crowd so you're set whether you're eating with friends or going solo to work on something on...the computer. The menu is really impressive, the salads are BIG, so plan on sharing with someone or taking half of it home. Great juice and beverage options, and food be catered to vegan/vegetarian if you ask. Really attractive interior, makes for a productive work environment ;)More

Stopped in for brunch on a Saturday. Nice crowd. Live music!! Service was quite good, and the food was excellent. The setup is a little crowded, and the seating not so comfortable...but overall, a very positive experience. Will definitely go back!

Though the other reviews I read before going there were not so favorable, we enjoyed our early dinner experience at this cafe. We like it that it features art-work from local artist. However the live music was not that great when we were there :(...We order the chicken panini (so-so) and the classic burger with chips. The burger/chips hit the spot for me. If you have time on your hands, stay to enjoy the ambiance.More

Stay Gold is one of our favorite go to restaurants in Belmar. Their morning smoothies and shakes made with vegetables or fresh fruits are outstanding and breakfast and lunches terrific as well. Stay Gold is pet friendly with bowls of water outside and treats. Sometimes...music and lots of funky art on the walls.... A fun casual place, perfect for Belmar.More

Before ordering lunch I asked waitress if a particular turkey sandwich was served hot, when she said yes I stated I didn't like hot turkey sandwiches so I ordered what I thought was cold turkey very much like a turkey club. When it came it...was hot, I asked the waitress why it was hot, answer was that's way it is served. Then she said oh I should have told you that. So she brings me cold sandwich with same ingredients, let me tell you the bread was stale, one slice of what tasted like American cheese(not cheddar) nothing on bread, very dry had to ask where chipolte mayo was that should have been on it also it was processed turkey! For $11.00 they ought to be ashamed of themselves!!! I will never eat there again or recommend it! Rip off city.More
