Great concept where the restaurant provides food for people who cannot pay. It's a 3 course meal. The food is nutritious, but average at best. Don't go there expecting gourmet food.

Nice people. Good food. But you should know it's a very limited menu and expensive for breakfast. $20.00 Minimum.

We were there in Sept and we caught New Jersey transit from Hoboken to Red Bank. I suggest you google train transport from New York to Red Bank as that's how I found it.
