STYLE 

Bustling, family-friendly favorite for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts, to go or on the patio. 

THE SCOOP 

Just seconds from Long Beach Island’s entrance, this one-stop shop promises a pick-me-up to satisfy whatever you’re craving. Grabbing a takeout dinner? Purchase a half or full bottle of vino from Hammonton’s Sharrott Winery. The market also boasts a robust catering menu.

THE MENU 

Start your day with a breakfast sandwich and whatever tempts you from the array of fresh pastries. Beverages range from cold brew and kombucha (call for the current flavor!) to lattes precariously piled with whipped cream and toppings such as s’mores fixings and churro pieces. The Walking Taco packs housemade chili, scallions, sour cream and cheese inside a bag of Fritos. Standouts include the Sushiritto Wrap (sesame-crusted seared tuna, seaweed salad, cucumber-wasabi mayo and mixed greens) and the BLT (fried green tomato, arugula and chipotle-Ranch sauce). Items change regularly—call for daily specials.

HEADS UP

The parking lot is tight and fills up fast; street spots findable.
