8 Great Breakfast Restaurants In The Belmar Area

When you're on vacation down the shore, it's always fun to treat yourself to a special breakfast out. Here are some of our favorite breakfast and brunch spots in the Belmar area, all within a short walk, bike ride or drive of our summer vacation rental.

These eight restaurants have elevated French toast, pancakes, and even the humble egg to new levels of deliciousness. (Restaurants listed in alphabetical order.)

1. Avon Pavilion

600 Ocean Avenue

Avon-by-the-Sea, New Jersey 07717 732-775-1043

Enjoy an amazing breakfast with gorgeous ocean views in an open-air setting at the Avon Pavilion. Located on on the boardwalk in Avon-by-the-Sea, the town next to Belmar, this casual beachfront restaurant starts serving breakfast at 7:30 a.m. The coffee here is excellent!

2. The Buttered Biscuit Café

700 Main Street Bradley Beach, New Jersey 07720 732-807-4069

The Buttered Biscuit Café in Bradley Beach is a local hot spot, well worth the wait for a table. On Sunday mornings, a 45-minute wait for a table is not unusual, so get here as early as you can (or, do as we do and grab a seat at the counter, or get an order to go). Our favorite dishes include the cali crab, the Buttered Biscuit scramble, and the eggs Oscar (pictured below). Breakfast is served Sunday through Saturday beginning at 8:00 a.m.

The cali crab omelette at Buttered Biscuit Café in Bradley Beach is a personal breakfast favorite.

3. Comfi of Belmar

707 Main Street

Belmar, New Jersey 07719

732-749-3583 Facebook Page

Comfi of Belmar opened in summer 2017 in downtown Belmar, New Jersey. The casual breakfast and lunch restaurant is owned by the same family that owns Comfi in Old Bridge, New Jersey. The restaurant is locally known for its generous portions and giant pancakes.

Try the loaded pierogi omelette; the eggs Benedict topped with a crispy Bell and Evans chicken breast and chipotle hollandaise sauce; chocolate chip pancakes; or their special sampler called the "I'm Still Undecided Breakfast," which includes French toast, two eggs any style, pancakes, a choice of meat, and breakfast potatoes.
