This is Robin and my favorite place to have breakfast. The food is excellent. The prices are quite reasonable. The owners are wonderful people. And the service is always great. Wouldn’t think of having breakfast anywhere else.

Tried another place this trip and it did not compare to OC Surf Cafe. Ate there 2 out of 3 mornings. Mike and Deb run a wonderful establishment and serve amazing food. Every time we visit my daughter buys a new t-shirt, but this time...she bought a sweatshirt since she is leaving for Cali at the end of August for college. Eating here one last time was on her summer bucket list before heading west. That is how good this place is. Keep up the great work!More

A girlfriend and I always stay across the street at the Forum and eat breakfast at The Surf Cafe. Great food! Great service, Reasonable prices. (Just remembered I have one of their t-shirts somewhere; need to look for it so I can wear it.) Highly...recommend!! Haven't been for almost 2 years due to the pandemic. Unable to click on a date when there last because it didn't include.More

My siblings, I, and our spouses had breakfast here our last day together for our annual gathering. There were 10 of us. They were expecting us, as we were looking for a place near where we were staying that would be open on a Monday....We had our area in the back, where we sat in two large booths, with the sibling in a wheelchair able to have her chair at the end of one of the tables. // The food was great (omelets, basic eggs and fixings, pancakes, etc. It came out of the kitchen fast. The two young adults who waited on us were great. The gal offered to take a group picture for us so we all could be in the one we needed from our days together -- one with all of us wearing our masks The two were very attentive. // We would go back, if any of us return to OCNJ, as we all were from out of town.More

The service and food was to our expectations! Veggie omelette was delicious and the home fries were scrumptious.

This place is an absolute gem for a great breakfast and coffee. We did not have a lunch here but heard people say lunch was also excellent. Very convenient, we stayed at the Forum Motel and it is literally across the street. Very close to...the boardwalk as well. Friendly service, Great food- can’t ask For much more.More

Whether it's takeout or eat in nobody in OC makes a dish like the OC Surf. We just had another delicious lunch. This place never disappoints. Put this on your list when you vacation in OC.

Fantastic breakfast! I ordered an avocado toast, but I wanted some extras added. My order was detailed (I asked for the eggs to be separated), and some extras to be added, and they did it perfectly. I was beyond satisfied, and my girlfriend loved her...surprise treat. They also prepared this to go, and the packaging was excellent for travel. Well done!More
