A local stop and excellent for breakfast. Nothing fancy, just good food and excellent service. Fast turn-a-round time from order to piping hot food delivered. Excellent coffee!

Place seems to never change. Great breakfasts for good prices, very old fashioned interior - right across the street from the beach.

Captain John's (Mister Breakfast) is a nice little "diner" type restaurant. We always have breakfast there a couple of times during our 2 week stays on LBI every summer. Great omeletts, waffles and french toast, and they serve lunch as well. Nothing fancy, but it's...More
