Rise and Dine: 8 Best Breakfast Spots In Belmar And Beyond

When you're spending time down the shore, it’s fun to treat yourself to breakfast out. Here are some of the Beachcomber Blog’s favorite breakfast and brunch spots in the Belmar area, all within a short walk, bike ride or drive of our beach house rental.

These nine restaurants have elevated French toast, pancakes, and even the humble egg to new levels of deliciousness, which is why they are some of the best breakfast spots in Belmar and beyond. (Restaurants listed in alphabetical order.)

1. Beckman's Deli

704 10th Avenue

Belmar, New Jersey 07719


Beckman's Deli is a Belmar legend and my favorite place to get a Monte Cristo breakfast sandwich. Beckman's is also known for its pork roll, egg and cheese sandwiches and its pork roll hash. Owned by Belmar residents Charlie and Debra Beckman, Beckman's Deli is a casual breakfast place with a small seating area inside and seasonal tables outside.

The breakfast menu includes a variety of hot breakfast sandwiches and wraps, breakfast platters, eggs Benedict, pancakes, omelettes, and typical breakfast sides such as bacon, sausage and hash browns.

Beckman's Deli in Belmar has online ordering for takeout and delivery via Grubhub.


2. 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.

3. Comfi of Belmar

707 Main Street

Belmar, New Jersey 07719


Comfi of Belmar opened in summer 2017 in downtown Belmar, New Jersey. The casual breakfast and lunch 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, asparagus, sauteed spinach, and chipotle hollandaise sauce, all over mashed potatoes (known as "Comfi Benedict" on the menu); chocolate chip pancakes; or their special sampler called the "I'm Still Undecided Breakfast," which includes French toast, two eggs any style, a pancake, a choice of meat, and breakfast potatoes.

Another favorite is "Jacek's Inspiration," two giant potato pancakes topped with fresh broccoli, onions, zucchini, asparagus, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese. Oh wow!!


4. Meemom's Kitchen

Target Plaza on Route 35

1825 Highway 35

Wall, New Jersey 07719


The French toast creations at Meemom's will tempt you with more than 25 different choices. You'll find bananas foster French toast and French toast stuffed with mascarpone and fresh berries, peanut butter and marshmallow spread, and many more delicious options.

The breakfast menu at Meemom's also includes a selection of pancakes and omelettes, eggs Benedict served over homemade garlic cheddar biscuits, breakfast wraps, eggs your way, sausage gravy over biscuits, avocado toast, and more.


5. The New Hooked Café

835 Belmar Plaza (near the Belmar train station)

Belmar, New Jersey 07719


Friendly service and great fresh food in a cozy setting are what you'll find at Hooked Café in Belmar. Outside seating is available when the weather permits, and there's also a small counter if you don't want to wait for a table.

We particularly enjoy the Hooked omelette, which is served with shrimp remoulade, avocado, and a side of potatoes. Nestled near the New Jersey Transit Belmar train station, Hooked Café serves breakfast and lunch Wednesday through Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (closed on Monday and Tuesday).


6. Robin's Nest (formerly known as Acropolis Café)

506 Main Street

Belmar, New Jersey

After the old-school Greek diner Acropolis Café permanently closed on February 13, 2023, a new breakfast and lunch spot, Robin's Nest, opened in this location on April 15, 2023. Robin's Nest is run by the same owner of Beachside Spa and Daffodil Consignment in Belmar.

The menu at Robin's Nest features many of the same beloved breakfast and lunch dishes previously served by Acropolis Café. The restaurant still has the counter and table seating, as well as sidewalk dining in the warmer months.

During a recent visit, we enjoyed eggs Benedict with home fries and the Hungry Man special (two eggs, two pancakes or French toast, choice of breakfast meat, home fries, and toast). The breakfast menu also includes pancakes, omelettes, hot breakfast sandwiches, Belgian waffles, pancakes, French toast, avocado toast, and sides such as oatmeal, toasted bagels and English muffins, and corned beef hash.

7. Sweet Tease Tea Room and Café

604 Main Street

Belmar, New Jersey 07719


A popular gathering spot among Belmar locals, Sweet Tease Tea Room and Café serves Sunday brunch from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Enjoy an assortment of freshly baked pastries, scones, jam, and fresh fruit. Brunch entrees include quiche and waffles of the day, eggs Benedict, croissant sandwiches, and other selections. Bottomless pots of coffee and tea are included, as well as a juice and mimosa bar (BYO sparkling beverages).

In addition to Sunday brunch, Sweet Tease has a lunch menu that includes daily quiche selections; and a daily selection of soups; and chicken, egg, or tuna salad sandwiches.

8. The Turning Point

2157 Route 35

Sea Girt, New Jersey 08750


The Turning Point's location in Sea Girt is popular among locals and tourists alike. Start your day with a French press coffee or a loose-leaf hot tea. Craving pancakes? How about an order of chocolate chip pancakes topped with strawberries or sliced bananas and honey-dipped granola.

Or try one of Turning Point's "eggceptional" egg dishes, hot waffles, French toast, or something from the "Good and Good for You" section of the breakfast menu.
