Beach Eats of Note: Long Beach Island 2009
The Sand Box Cafe: This outdoor cafe brings a taste of the tropics to the Jersey Shore. Go just for the experience and decor but bring an appetite as well. Breakfasts are their specialty and you can't go wrong with the sizzling pancake. Izzy's was stuffed with peaches, blueberries and sweet cream cheese, topped with maple syrup. If you go for lunch, save room for the Fried Oreo Sundae or other daily dessert special.
Marvel's Market: The place for donuts. Go early in the morning to watch them make the donuts, a far cry from Dunkin or Krispy Kreme, these donuts are the real thing, eggy and delicious. We got there too late to watch but at least they still had donuts left.
The Boat House: Outdoor dining with a view and surprisingly delicious seafood, especially the scallop special. Sit near the water if you can.
The Black Whale: Incredibly fresh seafood. casual atmosphere, long waits. Izzy had a seafood feast.
