Rise and Shine

When we travel, we usually stay at a bed and breakfast that includes a beautiful gourmet breakfast, so I don’t have a chance to sample breakfast and brunch spots in every town.  The list below are places that I have tried and that are my go to spots for breakfast and brunch in the towns that I spend most of my time in:

Turning Point of Marlton, Moorestown and Cherry Hill:  The organic food choices are sumptuous and healthy at the same time.  One of my favorite spots for breakfast and brunch.  My favorite dish is the corn bread French toast.  It is so good it is almost hard for me to order anything else.

Redstone Grill, Marlton:  The Sunday champagne brunch is so good.  The home baked bread, usually lemon/blueberry is fantastic.  There are many breakfast and lunch items on the menu.  My favorite here is the breakfast flatbread with scrambled eggs, sun dried tomatoe and bacon.  Yum!

Amy’s Omelette House, Cherry Hill and Burlington:  The cute country store motif is the perfect place to sample 200 varieties of omelettes!  They have great pancakes too but hard to resist trying one of their 200 omelettes.

Whole Foods, Marlton and Cherry Hill:  I was so pleasantly surprised at the breakfast bar that is offered here.  The offerings include  mini omelettes and egg dishes, breakfast sandwiches, potatoes and bakery items.  You can eat it right there in the café and enjoy their coffee and lattes.  They open at 7am for breakfast.

Harry’s, Cape May:  The oceanfront café offers signature cocktails, their orange crush with fresh squeezed orange juice is the best way to start the morning with French toast, pancakes, eggs and more.

Fins, Cape May:  The Sunday brunch is great because they host a charity event each time with live entertainment.  The make-it-yourself mimosa and bloody mary bar is a great feature. I had the breakfast burrito and it was very impressive.

The Mad Batter, Cape May:  The newly renovated front porch is a great place to enjoy the variety of omelettes, egg dishes, Belgian waffles, pancakes, fruit breads and muffins, steps from the ocean.

The Cove, Cape May:  this place is so special, not because of gourmet food options, but because it is the closest to the beach that you can get for dining in Cape May.  it is situated at the “cove beach” overlooking the ocean and lighthouse.  You will find here entrees that you would get at any diner.  Nothing fancy, but the view can’t be beat.
