“Small Town Charm”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Quality food and quality service paired with great prices is a perfect combination! Tucked in between Central and Asbury Avenues on 8th Street. It's worth a visit!

“The 50's is alive and well”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

A throwback to the coffee shops in the 1950's (Starbucks is not one of them). A year round breakfast and lunch place that is a favorite of locals and visitors. Nothing fancy, just good food served quickly with friendly service. Perfect for any age group, although it may be difficult to accommodate groups of more than 6 or 8.

“Best breakfast in OCNJ - like Mom's home cookin'”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

If you've never been to Ready's Coffee Shop, you're in for a treat. It's more than a Coffee Shop as they serve food as well. They're only open until 2pm, I believe. And you may have to wait a little on a weekend morning, but it is SO WORTH IT.

It sits on 8th St, just east of Asbury Avenue. Great location, easy to walk to if you're in downtown OCNJ, and then you can walk it all off by visiting all the little shops on Asbury Avenue afterwards. What a great way to spend your morning.

The place is a nostalgic little restaurant...get a load of the lunch counter and the old cash registers. It's a small place, but it is so good. Many locals frequent Ready's and many people know one another, but that's not to say weekenders and vacationers don't know about this great little place. I'm sharing the secret of where to get great food, friendly service, at such an affordable price.

BTW, this place is so clean. Even in a mid-morning rush, the place was spotless. Run, don't walk, to Ready's.
