Close your eyes and imagine; the smell of salt air, the sound of wave crashing, the sight of the boardwalk starting to fill with early morning walkers and joggers. Now place yourself there with a hot cup of coffee in your hand and a seat just 100 feet from the beach. Would you like to put yourself in that picture? Then head over to the Turning Point at the Shore at Pier Village in Long Branch. This restaurant only serves breakfast and lunch. But,it will be worth your time to wake up early and head over for some outstanding pancakes, surprising egg dishes(think lobster), and great coffee. Their lunches are great too!
