Summer weekends were made for gatherings like barbeques, beach fun, and Brunch. Now that the warm months are upon us, folks who visit the Shore like to get a lay of the land. They want to know where the best clubs are, along with the best restaurants, the best place to grab some ice cream, and the best places to have a great weekend Brunch.
Some will Google the area they’re visiting; some will take a stab in the dark at some random places, but most will ask the locals. As locals, we have a pretty darn good idea who has the best of everything the Shore has to offer. Heck, we live here, we know where to go, and if we’re kind people we will share our favorite places with the out-of-town summer renters and the occasional visitor or 2.
Now I have my favorites on the list, but a lot of the places that were chosen for this list come by word of mouth from the locals and the folks who either own a Shore house, or rent, season after Summer season. Those are the folks who have been to the Shore more than enough times to finally figure out where the best brunch is served.
From Brick to Long Beach Island, there’s no shortage of places to fill your belly with a great brunch. The key is finding the best places!
Locals and tourists loved my article on the most overlooked places to get a breakfast sandwich in Ocean County so I thought this list might be as enjoyable.
Some people like to consume adult beverages with their meal, and some people will be happy with a diner that serves top notch food. New Jersey is the diner capital of the world, but not all diners are created equal. Some offer typical fare, and some have eclectic choices. I love a little place in Toms River called Shut Up and Eat. The menu is ginormous, and the place is fun. The servers wear pajamas. If you show up in your pajamas, you get 10% off your bill. I would check out the menu online before heading over there, there’s a lot of choices. I make mental notes before I go.
Let’s take a look the top 18 places that offer some of the best weekend Brunches in Ocean County New Jersey.
