Three from our area made the list of the best in the state, starting with the Cracked Egg in Galloway.

With an atmosphere as cute as the name, The Cracked Egg is typically referred to by many as “the best breakfast in Jersey.” From soup served in a bread bowl to classic club sandwiches, you will not leave here disappointed.

Earning nearly all five-star reviews on Google, Yelp, Facebook, and TripAdvisor, The Cracked Egg Café will be your new “go-to” spot for brunch.

The Cracked Egg Cafe is located at 637 S New York Rd, Galloway.

Another spot from the local area that made the list is The Mad Batter in Cape May.

The Mad Batter is located inside of the Carrol Villa Hotel in historic Cape May and is the go-to destination for breakfast, lunch and everything in between. As the name suggests, pancakes, waffles and French toast are in abundance here, but the pizza and vegan options are not to be missed. Come here if you’re looking to enjoy a delicious meal in an incredible atmosphere.

Located at 19 Jackson street inside the Carroll Villa Hotel in Cape May, the Mad Batter is a well-known spot in the area, which is worth the drive, or even a weekend stay!

The Mad Batter has plenty of drink offerings on top of its breakfast menu. They feature a famous house-made spicy Bloody Mary, a bellini cocktail, mimosas, and more.


Brunch is good enough, but how about brunch with a view? At Pirate’s Den you can enjoy breakfast and lunch classics with the breeze of the ocean as an added bonus. Lobster quesadillas, omelettes—there isn’t a bad option, but if you’re looking to indulge in some true decadence, try the croissant French toast. Whatever it is that you like, Pirate’s Den should be on your list.

Located at 1219 E Brigantine Ave in Brigantine, its a hidden gem at the north end of the island.

A BYOB with bottomless cups of coffee sounds like a great way to start your day, even if you're starting a little late in the morning.

And Mother's Day will be here before you know it, so start thinking now of a spot to take mom this year!
