This is a nice place , varied menu. it was busy, but not crazy- the service was very slow. We were there over 1.5 hours for lunch. Ok if you have no place else to be but it was a gorgeous beach day so we wanted to get going.

Starving Artist is a delightful stop for a quiet lunch. The servers are helpful and the food enjoyable. A table next to the garden provides a peaceful respite from a walking tour of Ocean Grove.

Had lunch here last week. Food is fresh and tastes great. Staff very friendly. Space is light and airy. Have had breakfast here many time before. Definitely recommend. And of course, their counterpart Days, has great ice cream just outside the cafe!

They have a very nice breakfast and lunch selection. Food is good and it's not too expensive. You can chose to go inside for the air conditioning. Or if you work inside all week, you can enjoy the covered patio. I eat there pretty often. Wait staff is very nice and it is a very pleasant place to go.

Food comes out quick and is delicious. Only open during the day though - that means no dinner! But then again, there's ice cream till late into the evening in the back.

This was a great place for breakfast! Fresh omelets and coffee, and a nice outdoor space with a garden feel.
