Obviously, if you have listened to our morning show for any time now, you know that I love my coffee and have for years now while waking up folks in Ocean County. I like my coffee really simple, black. No cream, no sugar, no nothing. Just good plain coffee. So anytime I can talk about coffee and then throw in some good food, it's a "win-win" for sure.

According to the article, one is located on Long Beach Island, and one is located in Toms River. On Long Beach Island there is How You Brewin'. This shop actually has two locations on LBI. One is in Surf City and one in Barnegat Light. According to Best of NJ "Open year-round, they serve a perfect blend of popular favorites and original concoctions; the Best of NJ crew’s personal coffee picks here are Almond Biscotti, Banana Nut Bread, and Coffee Cake. But they always offer new special blends every month. Meanwhile, the food menu includes bagels, pastries, sandwiches, salads, desserts, and more."

The second cafe that is listed in the article is in Toms River. The Revolutionary Lounge and Cafe is the other choice here in Ocean County.  “Say no to corporate coffee” at Revolutionary Lounge and Cafe. As they say at this Toms River cafe, there are no microwaves or deep fryers here; instead, they focus on fresh food with local roots and fair trade coffee." 

So there are the two picks here in Ocean County. If you have sampled either location please let us know your review and I'll be stopping by myself :)
