American food in an open space shared with a secondhand-bike shop. Vines hang from the loft, and potted palms are placed around the vintage tables and chairs in the dining room. Feel free to browse the shelves laden with books or plop down on the couch.
In 2017, Jason Thomson and Sonia Jozajtis added this full-menu, year-round location to the original, coffee-focused High Voltage on the Asbury Park boardwalk. They have a third location in the Catskills.

There is just one menu. At all hours, most of the food is conveyed through the medium of the sandwich. If you’re feeling breakfasty, try the classic pork roll and fried egg on a bun, or the blue egg sandwich, which adds blueberry goat cheese and fig jam to a fried egg (sunnyside or over) on sourdough toast. There’s one house-made soup a day and one salad, the Kale Yeah! It’s made from marinated kale (they massage apple-cider vinaigrette into the greens), quinoa, red cabbage and almonds. There are three toasts, including the pickled goat (pictured), vibrant with beet hummus, goat cheese, arugula, pickled red onions and black sesame seeds on sourdough. For dessert? House-baked cookies.
High Voltage serves an abridged menu Monday through Wednesday, with just the three toasts.Click here to leave a comment
