A warm and bustling family-owned restaurant, Brown's is perfect for a casual breakfast at the beach with family and friends. Tasty, traditional breakfast selections and piping hot, sugar-dusted donuts make for an ideal start to the day at OCNJ!

Great donuts- hot out of the fryer. The cinnamon sugar and chocolate glazed are our favorites. Nice stop for breakfast, but be prepared to wait in line.

Have been enjoying Brown's for 40 years. Best doughnuts on the Boardwalk. Also great omelets. A must when in Ocean City, N. J.

First time to OC and people said you have to try the donuts. The line waiting for them says it all. You can see them being made. Once you make your order you'll see them take a hot donut out and put your topping of...More

Located at the lower end of the boardwalk, Brown's is a very popular place. We waited for a table, and the line at the donut window was about 100 feet long. It's vacation at the shore, so be patient. The wait is worth it. I...More
